THE INKA WOOD TRAY IS FEATURED IN AN ARTICLE IN THE AMBIENTE BLOG
The article ‘Ambiente Trends 2021 – love of home’ is about the house as our home and is a celebration of cozy habitats: big on pleasure and well-being. In uncertain times like these, we focus on our homes. More than ever, the interior must meet both functional and emotional needs…
AWARD FOR THE TOPPU COLLECTION // Grazia Magazine Awards
Thanks to the British fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazine Grazia UK to reward OYOY Living Design as a winner. OYOY Living Design won the high-street category for Sideboard Staple for the Toppu collection. This is the first interior awards the magazine has held and it was judged by Laura Jackson, Regjina Pyo and Rachel Loos. We are grateful to be nominated and to win the award!
The TOPPU series consist of decorative designs in ceramic and is one of OYOY Living Designs’ most popular design series to date..! TOPPU was first presented in the SS17 collection and the characteristic stripes have since been further developed into a whole series of unique products, inspired by trends of the time.
Another record-breaking year for OYOY Living Design
With four times as much on the bottom line and a revenue growth of 73 percent, 2020 was a record-breaking year for the company OYOY Living Design in Herning.
All markets have shown growth, and despite the global pandemic, new markets and sales channels have emerged, just as the growth in online sales has taken a big leap. Revenue here is also four times as high in 2020 and especially an extraordinarily strong fourth quarter in 2020 has contributed to the growth. The result before taxes was EUR 920.000.
”We are very pleased with the development OYOY Living Design has experienced in 2020. We would all have liked to go without the worldwide pandemic, but new buying patterns have in some cases favoured our industry”.
”However, we feel very sorry for our many customers with physical stores and we are looking forward to get them back on track,” says CEO Søren Anker Hansen and emphasizes that the company’s dedicated employees have shown a fantastic spirit and ability to adapt throughout the year.
”They have invested more than we could expect, and without them, our partners such as agents, distributors, suppliers and, most importantly, our loyal customers, our results would not have been possible.”
Ambitious strategy for the coming years
OYOY Living Design has reached a solid platform to ensure the company’s growth and further development with the expansion of the existing customer network as well as new sales channels.
”We are looking at 2021 and the future with great confidence. But we do not bel ieve that we are on the other side of the global pandemic yet, and therefore we are very aware of the risk of experiencing sudden setbacks and growing pressure on our supply chain due to imbalances in the world market,” says Søren Anker Hansen.
OYOY Living Design plans to expand the product portfolio with designs for the dear four-legged family members. In addition, the future will also offer more design collabs, where new products are developed with external designers and architects. Specifically, the future will bring more furniture. In terms of the design front, there is a targeted effort to find the core of the company’s design DNA, according to creative director Lotte Fynboe.
“In the design process, we work with playful expressions, simple shapes, colors and selected materials. The design is often based on childhood memories, which are reinterpreted, to fit in with the modern Scandinavian family,” says Lotte Fynboe.
As of May 1st, 2021, we have entered in a cooperation with the distribution company Tallytate S.L. as our distributor in Portugal.
With a base and warehouse in Spain, founder and owner Chantal and her team are ready to take on the task of bringing OYOY Living Design to the next level in Portugal. Chantal states:
“Tallytate´s true origin as a design enthusiast, previous being an interior decorator, we took an opportunity and started to introduce international baby and kids brands in the Iberian market with success. Now with OYOY Living Design, we go full circle, and we will grow and become trendsetter in Danish design in Portugal together with our Portuguese retailers.”
A huge thanks to Chantal and her team. Welcome on board in the OYOY family.

LAUNCH OF NEW FURNITURE SERIES
We are proud to present our new furniture series as a part of the newly launched AW20 collection.
The furniture series consists of designs for everyone in the family. The design is simple, and the concept is the same throughout the series - for adults and for children.
The furniture is made of solid oak. The craftsmanship and details are based on Danish design traditions. The simple design fits into any home and can easily be combined with the home's existing furniture. The furniture is produced in Europe and will be delivered flat packed.
For a long time, it has been our wish, to be able to furnish most rooms in the home exclusively with OYOY products, in order to create a complete design universe. This is the first step on the way to fulfill that wish, which is why the upcoming collections will include more furniture.
OYOY Living Design is featured in an article titled 'The renaissance of arch design' on the Ambiente Blog
Our Rainbow Placemat is featured in an article in the Ambiente Blog. The article is about 'The renaissance of arch design'.
From the article: 'Beautifully formed arches were common in buildings in almost every era until they were deliberately rejected after the end of the Second World War. The multifaceted possibilities of arch design, however, are now experiencing a comeback. And it’s particularly exciting when it comes together with the corrugated cladding look.'
As of October 15th 2020, we have entered in a cooperation with the distribution and marketing company Made in Inc. as our exclusive distributor for Canada.
“Securing a stronger nearness to our customers and business partners in the full North American region has been a top priority for a while. Together with the existing distributor in the United States, we have seen the full scale of possibilities within a close partnership with a local player and we now expect to see the same development on the Canadian market as we are experiencing these years in the US. Canada is not a new market for OYOY Living Design and we have been overwhelmed by the general interest for our brand and products, but now we look forward to developing it and bring it to the next level for B2B customers, end-consumers and all other business partners. Together with Made In Inc. we are certain that this will happen”, states OYOY Living Design CEO Søren Anker Hansen.
A huge thanks until now to Founder and President Aurélie Sauthier and the whole Made in Inc. team and welcome on board in the OYOY family.
OYOY Living Design is featured in an article titled 'Braided interior design: Crossover beauty' on the Ambiente Blog
Our Sporta Wall Basket is featured in an article in the Ambiente Blog. The article is about 'Braided interior design'.
From the article: 'Weaving, braiding and knotting: the braided look goes back a long way. Now the traditional materials of rattan, bamboo and leather are being joined by newcomers such as ceramics or birch bark in braided interior design. Glass and other objects find themselves with an eye-catching woven appearance, and extra-large knots are soft, comfy and more tempting than ever. All this greatly expands the repertoire of this well-loved trend for living spaces.'
Pictures from Days of Trade in Malmö 31/8 -1/9. We thank all of you who have taken the time to come by to explore our AW20 news and say hello to our team in Sweden.

Our founder, Walter Bonetti, has always been inspired by contemporary style and Scandinavian design – traditional and comfortable in some aspects, but always open to innovations and new trends and he passed on to me the same feeling. Over the years, we have researched the quality and design of OYOY Living Design’s products, the story that each collection has to tell...
Founded over 20 years ago, ContainerLab plays a consolidated role in the interior and lifestyle business in Italy, and through a network of 4 sub-agents, ContainerLab will be able to reach all the regions of Italy.

OYOY Living Design is the first brand in her newly founded agency where she has a wish to build up the selection around OYOY’s focus on the modern family – both children and adults. To that Vibeke states:
“MiniMy Agenturer is so happy to represent the Danish brand OYOY Living Design in Norway. It’s great to represent a brand with Nordic design look, with an elegant but a playful touch using colors, form and shapes to make it easy to recognize the brand and its DNA. The expression OYOY gives to its design is beautiful and functional and it blends into the home and for all the people living in it. These are the qualities MiniMy Agenturer wants to represent where the main focus is Design, Inspiration and Quality."
