The Långbordet public space table was designed by White Architects and installed in several Swedish cities.

The award was presented for the version of Långbordet installed in Hamntorget, a small urban plaza in central Stockholm.
Nola provides outdoor furniture to improve safety in the suburbs
Nola has contributed to creating a safer outdoor environment in the form of an urban park in the suburb of Fittja in Sweden. In collaboration with Botkyrkabyggen and architect Arkitema, a former car park has been refurbished and transformed into a social and safe meeting place. The environment features Nola's Långbordet, by White Architects, and the Korg furniture group, design Thomas Bernstrand.
Bicycle environment for sustainable cities and an economic restart
The cycling season is in full swing. A green restart of the economy requires new solutions in bicycle infrastructure, for healthier cities and a more sustainable society. Nola advocates more frequent and more secure parking solutions for the increasing number of cyclists. As well as better sustainability and aesthetics for bicycle products in the urban environment, which affects us all.
Nola's classic bench for Kungsträdgården back in production
When Kungsträdgården was redesigned before Stockholm became the European Capital of Culture in 1998, the architectonic portrayal ended up with the architect Aleksander Wolodarski. In a unique collaboration between Nola, Wolodarski and the former city gardener Carl-Fredrik Wachtmeister, a new backed bench was developed, based on an older model in cast iron. The bench is now back in production.
