Valinge Expanding into Furniture Business

Viken, Sweden, Jan. 9, 2014 -- Välinge is entering the furniture business with its locking system originally designed for flooring.

The company said it has developed Click Furniture, based on its well-established  5G Fold Down technology platform.  

"The dedicated work from Välinge to adapt the 5G technology to furniture components has resulted in a simple and reliable concept that has been well received when presented to furniture producers," said Niclas Håkansson, CEO of Välinge Innovation.

As an example, the firm said, a bookcase can be constructed from eight pieces that all snap together and require no other hardware.
