Kinnarps awarded three framework agreements by adda
Adda Inköpscentral is a company within the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR). Adda’s mission is to help Sweden’s local and regional authorities with the strategic supply of goods, services and skills. Kinnarps has been awarded framework agreements relating to furniture for offices and care facilities, furniture for schools and preschools, as well as recycled furniture including associated services.
Two renewed agreements for furniture
Regardless of the area of use, Kinnarps’ products offer design with good functionality, holistic ergonomics, sustainable circularity, low life-cycle costs and long lifespan. Most importantly, Kinnarps’ furniture is customised to create versatile and future-proof interior design solutions that can be developed to suit changing needs. The new agreements for offices and care facilities, as well as schools and preschools, mean that Kinnarps will continue to deliver flexible and high-quality furniture that meets stringent environmental and sustainability requirements. The agreements are an important prerequisite for creating good and stimulating interior spaces that meet the needs of different people. Both agreements cover all sections of the procurement documents.
New framework agreement for recycling
Kinnarps has also been awarded a new framework agreement for recycled furniture including associated services. The purpose of the procurement is to encourage recycling in order to minimise resource consumption and climate impact. Kinnarps is thus involved in the transition to more sustainable and circular furniture management. An increased focus on recycling is about giving people better opportunities to look after and restore furniture. This requires well-made and versatile furniture of high quality. The carefully considered design of Kinnarps’ furniture makes it easy to update, reupholster, clean and repair. This extends its lifespan even further, and the furniture can be given new functions and users. Ultimately, this leads to lower costs and a smaller climate footprint.
