After several years of development, we have signed our largest framework agreement to date. Following a joint innovation project with the municipalities of Copenhagen and Aarhus, the parties have now signed the agreement, and product deliveries will commence in the fall.

For a couple of months, Tobias Laarmå has been the new product development manager at Belid Lighting Group. Tobias has solid experience in the industry and most recently comes from Global Lighting Consulting where he worked with product development and before that as product manager at Ateljé Lyktan. We asked three quick questions to hear Tobias' view on trends and what's going on both in the industry and at Belid Lighting Group.
Trends come and go, but above all we have a shift in both technology and awareness of environmental issues where recycled materials and a circular approach to product development are here to stay. Ever since LED came out over ten years ago, the design of lamps has changed in parallel. With a smaller light source, the luminaires also became slimmer - but now I think I see a backlash to this with ever larger screens and shapes. Offices are increasingly being furnished like a living room, it should be cozy - without losing good function. We also increasingly see renewable materials such as wood and recycled aluminium.
There is a lot going on in Varberg now. This autumn, we launched a collaboration with Thomas Sandell, who developed a new series of outdoor lighting for Belid. We are also growing in the so-called professional market, with lighting for public environments. In November we have e.g. delivered lighting to the new hotel Jacy'z in Gothenburg. This is a segment where we have fantastic conditions with factory and production only a stone's throw from the office. We can produce customized lighting, completely according to need and minimize the risk of overproduction.
I probably have to say the manufacturing at home - with a factory only a few meters from the office in Varberg. This creates both opportunities and is just right in time, from the perspective of sustainability and the logistics aspect in mind. It is truly a privilege to be able to look into the factory and follow the products from idea to finished fixture at such close range.
