Modeo offers holistic solutions for office spaces.
Modeo was founded in 2006 when design ethusiasts Kimmo Kaarlejärvi and Janne Laitinen wanted to create a specialty store for office furniture. The founders opened their first store in Helsinki’s Kalasatama, introducing Finnish consumers and businesses to new international furniture brands.
Today, Modeo is a business-to-business furniture supplier and interior design agency. We have built our success furnishing beautiful, functional and timeless spaces. Our main showroom, headquarters and warehouse are located in Helsinki’s Arabia district. As the company has grown, we have opened five more showrooms in cities around Finland: in Turku, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Oulu and Rovaniemi.
In 2014, Modeo started its digital transformation by opening an online store for business customers in Finland. We aspire to be at the forefront of digital development and strive to be a digital champion in the furniture industry. All in all, Modeo is experiencing strong growth and we are expecting a turnover of 10 million euros in 2015.
Our goal is to have a broad selection of Scandinavian style design furniture at various price points. Our product portfolio includes office and design furniture, textiles, lighting and ergonomic products. We care about the environment as well as the stories and people behind the products.
Our brand portfolio includes over fifty international brands, including Arper, Foscarini, Magis, Hay and Tom Dixon. We also do our best to promote and sell Finnish design brands, such as Nikari, Innojok, Himmee and Lepo Product.
Each year, we visit the main European furniture exhibitions, including Milan, Cologne and Stockholm in search of new partners. We have been importing high quality design furniture for nearly a decade and have established strong working relationships with manufacturers.
Moreover, we create some of our own products to complement our portfolio. We also utilize the expertise of highly skilled craftsmen, such as carpenters and upholsterers, for producing custom-made furniture for client projects.
Our clients are small business owners, entrepreneurs, senior executives, procurement managers, and interior architects. What they share is a strong sense of the organization they represent and a desire to translate its brand and values into a functional space.
It has been exciting for us to witness some of our customers grow from early stage start-ups to billion euro companies. What started out as orders for a few desks and chairs eventually turned into state-of-the-art office spaces for world-class talent.
We also cater to the public sector. We are a supplier of office furniture for the Finnish government within the Hansel framework agreement, and have bilateral agreements with several Finnish counties, including Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.
Although we have our own design team, we also collaborate closely with design agencies and architecture offices to help bring their visions to life. We do not compete with them – we complement them. That means matching their plans with our existing product portfolio.
We furnish inspiring workspaces, offices, restaurants, pharmacies, libraries and educational environments. We help our clients with work environment change management with improved employee productivity in mind. Our enthusiastic design and sales teams work relentlessly to find the best solution for each client and space, also in collaboration with external architects.
Part of our appeal is that we bring simplicity into complex projects. The products may come from a dozen manufactures around the world, but our clients only communicate with us. We try to make life simple for our customers and that means being coordinated behind the scenes.
To guarantee a seamless service experience, we have an in-house team of furniture experts who deliver the items and install them at the client site. Our staff makes sure that desks are set-up correctly and recycle furniture that is no longer needed in the old space. As a business, we pride ourselves in enabling smooth transitions from the old to the new.
