The colour palette of Krog desks has an update. The good old Krog remains strikingly simple; the range comes with all the needed elements and without any bells and whistles to push up the price.
Krog’s desktops are made of durable and easily maintainable 22 mm melamine boards, available in three different colours (white / stone grey / steel grey) and three wood imitations (birch / fair ash / walnut). Krog’s drawer units and auxiliary surface cases are made of 19 mm boards and come in light or dark grey, and in white.
To top an already perfect solution, brightly coloured additional elements (folder holders, desk shelves, customer surfaces to expand the desk, screens and modesty panels) have been added to create comfort with a twist of individuality. Krog’s bright additional elements are made of thin and durable MDF board and come in five colours: old good cream and brick red and newcomers cranberry rose, olive green and blue of Sargasso sea. The furniture’s metal details are available in both grey and white.
The renewal of Krog’s colour palette brings along some changes in colours of cabinets as well. Fair ash melamine replaces oak sonoma white melamine in the selection of finishes of Moi and More. Also the accent colours for More are renewed: old good cream and brick red remain, and newcomers cranberry rose, olive green and blue of Sargasso sea are added to the selection.
We cordially invite you to the events in our showroom at the Tallinn Design Festival Disainiöö 2018! More detailed information below.
During the Design Festival week September 10 to 14th Thulema showroom is also open longer: 9 – 18.
14:00 Human Centric Lighting
Light has a huge effect on people. It does not just enable us to see. It also stimulates us and affects our mood and activity. As we spend a lot of our time indoors, especially in winter, the qualities of artificial lighting around us are important.
Human centric lighting solutions support people’s circadian rhythm, improve concentration, prevent sleep issues and improve our wellbeing as a whole. This is possible due to the latest knowledge of the biological effects of light, and the latest innovations in lighting technology.
Valdo Ruul is here to give an introduction to the issue, and to present the smart light fittings and lighting systems by Luxo/Glamox.
13:00 Office to Come / lecture
Today’s work needs new practices and tomorrow’s spaces.
The designer of many Thulema’s products, Martin Pärn lectures about the ways we will work in our office soon.
14:00 Well-being in All Areas / product presentation
The concept of dynamic sitting ensures a healthy back and is partly responsible for the huge success of the Wagner collection.
Karsten Buchfelner from Wagner-Living will introduce their latest product developments like the multiple awarded D1 collection, and present a wide portfolio of design products for well-being in all areas.
In August, Kitman Thulema activated a new powder technology-based finishing line. The new technology will allow the introduction of a number of significant changes affecting the quality. Significant improvement in the quality of finishing, increases in overall productivity, and most importantly – through the phosphate free pretreatment of components – the environmental impact is reduced.
The pretreatment is designed to clean all dirt, grease and particles from the treated material before finishing. In addition, pretreatment gives the coating a favorable adhesion surface and improves the corrosion resistance of the components. Traditionally, in the capacity of the pretreatment and coating, on the metal parts of the furniture to be installed indoors was also used the so-called ‘iron phosphate’ process. However, we have eliminated the use of phosphates! Phosphates have had adverse impacts on the environment because they contain large amounts of phosphoric acid or phosphate. Phosphates cause strong eutrophication of water bodies, and therefore, the EU has banned the use thereof, for example, in household detergents. Iron phosphating also produces a lot of sediment, which should be treated as hazardous waste. The new technology and method does not contain phosphates; the detergent surfactant is completely biodegradable – thus we are able to minimize the burden on the environment.
We will use the new technology in the production of the various parts of tables and office furniture, shelves, school furniture and upholstered furniture.
We introduced the new finishing line with the help of the EAS program “Support of a large investor for an industrial undertaking” in the course of which an investment was made in Kitman Thulema production technology in the volume of 3.24 million EUR, of which the EAS support amounted to EUR 800,000, the remainder was self-financed by Thulema.
