Ifö Electric - A hundred-year history of porcelain manufacturing
Ifö Electric is well known for its porcelain production in southern Sweden. The company's history started in the early 20th century not far from Ivön, where kaolin clay was mined. The company has played an important role in Swedish industrial history with its production of fuses, ball boxes, and durable porcelain luminaires. The lighting fixtures have become Scandinavian classics and are recognizable in many homes and public environments. Luminaires designed by Sigvard Bernadotte in the 60s, Knud Holscher in the 80s and by Duoform in the 00s are still popular and in production.
The unique production method of pressing porcelain provides high precision, together with an outstanding durability and insulating properties in the material - something that is perfect for electrotechnical products. The result is a fantastic porcelain quality with a glazed surface that is not affected by wind, water or strong sunlight.
Ifö Electric is located in Bromölla on the border between Skåne and Blekinge, by the beautiful Ivösjön, and has for more than 100 years invested in porcelain - nature's own material.
