fleimio piraattikopioita / fleimio pirate copies 06/2018

meillä on vahva syy epäillä, että markkinoilla on myyty piraattivalmistettuja kopioita fleimio-tuotteista.Pienen yrityksemme kaikki resurssit ovat nyt laitettu taistelemaan piraattivalmistusta vastaan. Näitä piraattikopioita on todennäköisesti myyty paljon vuosien 2011-2018 aikana. Kopioita on voitu myydä kaikilla mantereilla, Euroopan kaikissa maissa sekä Suomessa.

We have strong reason to believe, that there are pirate manufactured copies of the fleimio product on the market. All resources of our small company are now dedicated to fight against the pirate manufacturers. We have strong reason to believe that sales of the pirate manufactured has been extensive during 2011-2018. Copies can be sold on all continents, in every European country and in Finland.

Meillä on vahva syy epäillä, että piraattivalmistetut kopiot fleimio-tuotteista ovat designiltaan täysin virallisten fleimio-tuotteiden näköisiä ja että ne myydään alkuperäisen näköisissä pakkauksissa, laittomasti käyttäen suojattua  fleimio-tuotemerkkiä. On hyvin todennäköistä, että piraattikopiot on myyty merkittävällä alennuksella. Epäily koskee kaikkia fleimio-tuotteita (fleimio trolley / halkovaunu, fleimio mini trolley, fleimio pine cone / käpy -seinähylly, fleimio woodhopper, fleimio shoe helper / footer, fleimio acoustic stand). Olemme olleet epäilyksen tiimoilta yhteydessä Suomen poliisiin.

We have strong reason to believe, that the pirate manufactured copies of fleimio products are perfect copies of original design of the fleimio products and that they are sold in packages that look like original packages, using illegally the registered fleimio trademark. Probably the piratemanufactured copies are sold with big discount. Suspicion concerns all fleimio products (fleimio trolley, fleimio mini trolley, fleimio pine cone, fleimio woodhopper, fleimio shoe helper / footer, fleimio acoustic stand). Concerning this suspicion, we have been in contact with the Finnish police authorities.

Aitoja fleimio-tuotteita on myyty samanaikaisesti paljon. Tämän takia epäillyksen tutkiminen on haastavaa. Original fleimio products have been sold simultaneously plenty. Therefore, investigating this suspicion is demanding.

Mikäli teillä on epäillys siitä, että teidän ostamanne tuote on piraattikopio tai jos epäilette että teille on tarjottu piraattivalmistettuja fleimio-tuotteita, olkaa kiitos yhteydessä fleimio asiakaspalveluun (info [at] fleimio.com). Teemme kaikkemme selvittääksemme asian. Pystymme esimerkiksi melko helposti  selvittämään onko fleimio ollut ostetun tuotteen toimittaja.

If you have a suspicion that fleimio product you have bought or fleimio product of which you have received an offer is a pirate manufactured copy, please contact fleimio customer service (info [at] fleimio.com). We will do our utmost to help you. It is for example quite easy to find out, has fleimio delivered the bought product.

Olemme tästä pahoillamme. Voimme vain syyttää tapahtuneesta itseämme. We are very sorry about this. We can only blame ourselves.

Mikäli emme saa pikaisesti selvyyttä tähän asiaan, joudumme lopettamaan toimintamme. If we are not able to clarify this matter soon, we are forced to stop our operations.

The Metsälehti Makasiini wrote: “among all of you who answered before the 11th of May, we will conduct an election and will send one Finnish fleimio woodhopper logcart to the winner. The woodhopper suits well among other things to move firewood.” (kaikkien 11. toukokuuta mennessä vastanneiden kesken arvomme fleimion kotimaisen woodhopper-kärryn, joka sopii muun muassa klapien kuljettamiseen. Palkinnon arvo on noin 138 €)

fleimio woodhopper Metsälehti BIGFleimio Woodhopper is a firewood cart for transporting logs. Product is meant for those, who feel carrying firewood logs as heavy or for those, whose distance from the woodshed to the fireplace or to the sauna is long.

Using fleimio woodhopper is easy:
1. pile the logs to the cart as in photo here above.
2. drive the cart by using your both hands to keep it in upright position.
3. in stairs – we recommend to pull it upwards.
It is agile to drive, because it has only one wheel. It is possible to be stored in horizontal or vertical position.

The fleimio logcart has only one wheel that makes it agile to drive outdoors where the yards and gardens are not always even: there are stones, roots and stumps. We recommend to use the fleimio logcart outdoors, because its wheel can bring dirt and stones that can harm the floor.

The fleimio woodhopper is an agile tool for moving and storing firewood. However, it can be used in a versatile manner for other things as well. The fleimio woodhopper is designed for outdoor use. Manufactured in Finland. Design by Mr Mika Hautamäki & fleimio. It is available in four colours: green, grey, black and red.

The fleimio woodhopper was exhibited at the Maison & Objet Paris in September 2017, in Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in February 2018 and in Spring Fair (Kevätmessut) Helsinki April 2018.

Instructions how to keep your fleimio logcart in good condition:
1. see to that there is enough air in the tyre (max 2 bar, valve TR87).
2. wipe its painted surfaces with a damp cloth from time to time.
3. when possible, do not let the fleimio woodhopper’s tyre freeze.

Fabulous Storing: Sköna Hem 03/2018

Fabulous Storing: Sköna Hem 03/2018

Sköna Hem wrote about their ideas of fabulous storing in their newest number 4 (03/2018). One of the fabulous storing ideas was the fleimio trolley original.

The Sköna Hem wrote: “functional simplicity combined with the aesthetics. We have chosen the spring’s nicest and most clever storages.” Additionally, they wrote about the fleimio trolley original:” clever trolley on top of  wheels with places for books and firewood.”

fleimio trolley original - fabulous storage solution - sköna hemThe fleimio trolley’s design was created by Mr Tero Jakku (MA) from Finland. The trolley was created as a furniture for firewood in the beginning. Later, there has emerged new ways to use the trolley, e.g. for books, magazines, newspapers or for jeans.

Now the fleimio trolley is considered as a storage furniture. It is available in two models: either with locations for three or five shelves. There are two kinds of shelves available: either regular or wine. The trolley equipped with the wine shelves is called the fleimio wine trolley: a catering trolley for wines or milk cans – for office or home parties.

The trolley suits various spaces: homes, offices and hotels. It can have many different roles and functions depending on the space. The same trolley can be used for many roles: some day it can be a storing place for fire wood, some other day for company products, next day a stand for the company brochures – and on friday – the trolley for serving good quality red wine for the clients.

The fleimio trolley’s material is laminated birch veneer. It will be delivered fully assembled ready to be used. Dimensions are 100 x 400 x 28 cm. It weights about 6 kg. Currently it is available in four colours: white, grey, black and red.

We exhibited the accessories (regular shelf, wine shelf and fleimio bag) for the trolleys in the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 6.-10th of February 2018. Read more here: https://fleimio.com/product/accessory-fleimio-wine-shelf/

Fleimio @ Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 6.-10th of February 2018

Finnish design company fleimio exhibited again at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. fleimio stand was AG:17, which was located between the halls A and B. Goal was to launch two new colours of the fleimio woodhopper and to present the new fleimio trolley concept with its accessories.

The Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is the number one trade fair in design in the Nordic Countries. During Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, the fair is full to bursting point with the latest innovations within interior design and lighting for both homes and public spaces. New products, new materials, new knowledge, new trends and new environmental and technological solutions are displayed in a both informative and inspirational manner.

Over 40 000 people visited the fair in 2017 from over 60 countries. Last time Feb 2017, the fair had press coverage from over a 1100 journalist and over 300 of them were international journalists. Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is truly an international fair with visitors from the whole world. However, this year 2018  the number of visitors was lower compared to previous year.

fleimio trolleys at stockholm furniture fair 2018picture: the fleimio trolleys 

The fleimio trolley was launched at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair already 2012. This year we focused on presenting the possibilities to modify the trolley depending on the usage purpose. Because the fleimio trolley can be used for books, magazines, firewood and jeans – it is essential that it can be customised. The fleimio trolley has several accessories available: regular shelves, wine shelves and fleimio bags.

When the fleimio trolley is used as a book, magazine – or as a jeans stand – many would prefer having several shelves in it. One of the novelties exhibited was the fleimio trolley as a wine trolley: good looking catering trolley for home parties. Actually the trolley itself is the same. There is just new wine shelves available for it, which converts the trolley into a wine trolley.

Additionally, another novelty presented in Stockholm was the fleimio bag. It is an accessory that converts the trolley into a storage furniture for textiles or toys. Some may use it as an elegant laundry bag.

Good thing is – that one can play with the fleimio trolley during the year: it can have various roles in interior decor. During winter it can serve as a stylish log holder, during spring and summer as a mobile book & magazine stand – and during parties as a wine trolley.

February 2018 the fleimio woodhopper was presented for the first time to the Nordic trade professionals. Additionally, we launched two new colours of it; black and red. The fleimio woodhopper received good feedback from the visitors as there is not similar kind of product in the market yet.

All in all, we had a good reception in Stockholm. Now waiting to start a nice partnership with the new contacts.

Here below a short summary of the fleimio trolley concept and fleimio woodhopper:

fleimio trolley original is a versatile modern storage furniture that can be used for storing and moving e.g. magazines, books, firewood and jeans. It is convenient to use, because it has wheels. The fleimio trolley fits well several interiors: almost any room at home or second home, public venues, restaurants, boutiques and naturally offices.

The fleimio wine trolley and fleimio 5 shelf trolley are modifications of the original fleimio trolley. The overall design of them resembles the design of the fleimio trolley, but the wine trolley and 5 shelf trolley has five locations for the shelves, which makes it more suitable for e.g. magazines, company brochures – or naturally for wines in home parties or in cafes and bistros. Some people use the five shelf trolley for vinyl records.

fleimio mini trolley is a versatile trolley side table that can be used as a bedside table too. One is able to store items suitable to one’s interior design in it. Moreover, it is easy to move from one place to another, because it has wheels. Therefore, one is able to easily rearrange the interior design any day.

fleimio and fleimio trolley in Design Year 2017 publication

The fleimio trolley’s design, created by Mr Tero Jakku, has been untouched since the registration. However, the concept of the fleimio trolley has been evolved during the time.

The fleimio trolley is a modern storage furniture for example for magazines, vinyl records, books, firewood and jeans. It is a mobile furniture whose location in the premises is easy to change, because it has wooden wheels.

The key of the fleimio trolley concept is naturally in its versatile and functional design.

Fleimio trolley is made of birch.

The fleimio trolley is available in two sizes and in four regular colours. Moreover, the customised fleimio trolleys, i.e. trolleys with customised colour or pattern, are available for the professionals.

Fleimio Launched Novelties at the Maison & Objet Paris 8.-12th of September 2017

Design company fleimio from finland exhibited for the 5th time at the Maison & Objet trade fair in Paris on the 8.-12th of September. The stand of fleimio D7 was located in a great location in hall 7 (now! design a vivre!) where fleimio presented its novelties widening its range of modern storage furnitures.

It was already five years ago, when fleimio exhibited for the first time at M&O. At that time – the stand was its representatives La Boutique Scandinave’s / AG Sarl’s who represents also other Scandinavian brands in the competitive French market.

Fleimio-Novelties

At that time, fleimio had only one product at the fair – the fleimio trolley (look photo on the left) – the modern log holder. However, since 2014 the fleimio assortment has grown a lot.

This year 2017 fleimio exhibited several novelties for the professionals at the fair.

Fleimio Novelties

For the first time at Maison & Objet, the visitors got a chance to get acquainted with fleimio woodhopper, a firewood cart for transporting firewood and with fleimio wine trolley, which is a modified version of the fleimio trolley dedicated for serving wines in home parties, catering or in restaurants and bistros.

 

Fleimio Woodhopper

Fleimio-Woodhopper

Especially the visitors from France and from Asia were interested in the fleimio woodhopper, which is an agile firewood cart, as it has only one wheel due to the fact that yards and gardens – at least in the Nordic countries – are not even and flat. The yards near the French Alps are definitely not flat! Almost every visitor at fleimio stand wanted to test drive the fleimio woodhopper.

Visitor Feedback regarding the Fleimio Woodhopper:

visitors-feedback

Majority of the visitors considered the price of the fleimio woodhopper reasonable being a product 100% designed and manufactured in Finland. However, almost all the visitors – especially those who test drove the cart – were most satisfied with the usability of the fleimio woodhopper. Nevertheless, there were people, who did not understand the advantages of having only one wheel.

Fleimio Wine Trolley

The other novelty – fleimio wine trolley – gathered a lot of interested visitors too. The fleimio wine trolley is a modification of the original fleimio trolley. The design of the trolley is actually the same, but in the wine model, there are wooden shelves designed for the standard size wine bottles. The fleimio wine trolley can take max 10 bottles of wine, which is quite ok quantity for big home parties not to mention the events and hospitalities in restaurant and/or bistros.

fleimio-wine-trolley

The visitors at the fair gave the fleimio wine trolley a nick name “perfect evening”. The reason behind this was, that in the exhibition sample, there were books on the top shelf, then several bottles of wine – and high-end Finnish birch logs in the bottom.

The design of the fleimio wine trolley was the key. The pleasant outlook of the trolley and its characteristics of Scandinavian design with the aesthetics of the Nordic lifestyle were highly appreciated.

Additionally, the visitors liked the touch and feel of the trolley: the high-end birch with careful work by the carpenters, obtained a lot of positive feedback. Naturally, the price of the wine trolley should be lower. However, when considering the fact that first the birch needs to grow up 50 – 70 years, the price is acceptable remembering that  the fleimio trolleys are manufactured, assembled and quality controlled in the EU.

Visitors Feedback regarding the Fleimio Wine Trolley:

fleimio-wine-trolley-feedback

All in all, the Maison & Objet Paris was nice to fleimio, who exhibited for the first time on its own stand. Design company fleimio is concentrated on the trolleys and carts and promotes their playful use (versatility, many ways how to use, many places where one can use them). The fleimio trolleys and carts belong to a new category of modern storage furnitures.  The benefit of the fleimio’s modern storage furnitures is that they have wheels.

How to Select a Proper Way to Transport Firewood to the Fireplace

People in the Nordic Countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland) burn a lot firewood in their fireplaces in order to warm up their houses during the winter when the outdoor temperature is often freezen (below 0 centigrades).

Traditionally the firewood are carried by using a log holder or a cardboard box. However, winters are long and not many people have enough strenght to do this. Additionally, the distance from the woodshed to the fireplace may be long.

When selecting a tool to transport firewood to the fireplace – there are plenty of alternatives. Here below a short introduction to each.

Fireplaces have various characteristics that ought to be considered when thinking of storing and managing firewood supply. In the first place the physical dimensions of the fireplace set limits for the firewood logs’ thickness and lenght. In general, it is not advisable to store dry logs too near the fireplace because of fire safety. Moreover, we recommend to follow the guides set for storing firewood.  Fireplaces can be categorized as following;  stoves, baking & heating ovens, fireplaces and design fireplaces. Each of them have their extra characteristics that should be taken into consideration.

Log holders are portable baskets, boxes or fixed racks. Difference between these options are size and therefore easiness of use and outlook. Firewood are normally stored in a wood shed. Moving the logs from the wood shed to the fireplace should be taken care of. It is obvious, that fixed firewood racks are pretty solid pieces of furniture. One should select a log holder with a proper size – since it results in heaviness of the holder.

When talking about storing the firewood indoors, one can have the logs in the log holder. Another option is to build a solid firewood stand that suit the interior design. However, one needs to remember that the logs need to be transported  to the solid firewood rack.

log-holder                                      log-holder

Example of a traditional Finnish log holder            Example of a solid firewood storing solution

Wheeled storing solutions are actually log holders with wheels. They are useful in transporting the firewood easily from the woodshed to the fireplace. Additionally, they may take much more firewood to be transported compared to the regular log holders. The wheeled storing solutions have one more extra benefit: they are easy to relocate in interior design, which gives new  possibilities for example to have the firewood visible or to have them not visible.

There are several carts for transporting firewood available. Most of them are designed for transporting the firewood. When thinking of transporting the firewood, one critical question is the location of the woodshed: outdoors or indoors. Design company fleimio from Finland has developed a new solution for wheeled firewood transportation: a firewood carts that also looks good.
