OK DESIGN AAN HET WOORD...
Danish Design with a global narrative
At OK Design we design and manufacture unique furniture with an eye towards cultural diversity. Founded in 2008, OK Design has its base in Copenhagen, Denmark, and operates production facilities in Mexico City and Cairo.
Our young, dynamic firm is dedicated to producing high quality designs with a global narrative.
Our Acapulco and Condesa chairs are manufactured in a tough Mexico City neighborhood. Along with high unemployment, drugs and violence are a way of life. Our success has allowed us to move troubled young adults off the streets and into good paying jobs. Collaborating with our Mexican manufacturer we have established a clean and healthy environment where workers earn three times minimum wage. We ensure that men and women are paid equally and that no one is asked to work excessively long hours. In our effort to create the safest working conditions possible we have developed a special PVC for the plastic cord in our Acapulco and Condesa lines, free of phthalates and heavy metals which are hazardous substances used by other manufacturing firms.
