GREAT FRIBES

FRIBE FORM is a tribute to historical treasures, exquisite craftsmanship and timeless design, founded by Heléne Friberg.

It started with a nagging conscience  – and love for my family! Attics and cellar were brimmed with boxes, seldom unpacked. Too full of affection and values to get rid of.

FROM BAD CONSCIOUS TO GREAT FRIBES
The bad consciousness evolved into curiosity. I realized I wasn’t alone in feeling this way. If I could ease my conscience, maybe I could also help others. I decided to give it a try. By redesigning existing quality items into timeless and exquisite interior accessories I promote a sustainable way of life for more people. 

A RECYCLED BRAND
Like all products, the logotype is inherited, recycled, and refined. The mirrored F now reflects the historical heritage and craftsmanship together with the future need for zero waste. When I ran into the urban expression fribe [fra:ib’] meaning; awesome, tight, cool, grand, fantastic, boss… the brand logotyp was ready to flourish once again. Now as a recycled and registered trademark.

ON A MISSION
FRIBE FORM will never hook on to a fast-moving trend. Instead, I hope to inspire opting out of linear production and quick consumption. Together we can make a brighter future and a healthier climate on our planet. Be proud of our history and act circularly. For generations to come. I will do everything I can to make you feel the Great Fribes in a more circular living.

Join me on this journey as we uncover the stories behind precious keepsakes.

My role models

LARS-OLOF FRIBERG. My creative entrepreneurial father. With an outstanding ability and desire to inspire, he activated people of all ages to appreciate the importance of historical roots and cultural values. Always encouraging, never demanding he made me see the big world, be persistent, and always stay curious. He is also the father behind the idea and first prototype of our signature product, The Fribe Book Light. 

INGRID FRIBERG. My beautiful mother. So humble. So shy. So immensely protecting, loving, and caring for our family’s well-being. She introduced me to the esthetic world of scenic art – music, theatre, and dance. She made me cherish things with a history and the joy of bringing beauty into everyday life. The Ingrid Collection is a tribute to her love and legacy of handmade laces, once inherited from her mother and now given to me.

The market premiere at Formex in January was a wonderful success!

My Hat Walk Happening made everyone smile and spread love and the exhibition booth was a fribe attraction.

The lamp was also represented at the grand entrance exhibition, curated and styled by Dennis Valencia.
And at the event stage stylist Jan Rundgren showed another version. We were noticed in the press.
A spontaneous interview was made, (there’s a little unexpected break in the middle.😂)
And the first fribe Book Lights have been sent to spread the light of Great Fribes in Sigtuna.

Thank you for visiting and for all fribe words about the lamp.
