Easy Engineering: What are the company’s main areas of activity?

Egoé life belongs to a holding ecosystem that covers the entire product life cycle. That is, from its design, development, engineering, complex production and sales. The products are designed for public, corporate and exclusively private spaces.

E.E: What is the news regarding the new products?

This year we are significantly expanding the number of furniture collections. This is also linked to the development of one of the pillars of our offer – the Leva modular system. These are cubes made up of a wooden or steel frame. By installing the accessories and connecting them together, it is possible to create facilities for a range of activities in different environments. From an outdoor kitchen in the garden to a classroom in the schoolyard to a seating area at a petrol station. We are currently coming up with new variants that focus on cycling infrastructure or can serve as an outdoor exhibition and information system.

E.E: At what stage is the market in which you currently operate?

As far as furnishings are concerned, there is a period of qualitative renewal – the concept of public space as an extension of private space is becoming more and more common. This is linked to the demand for lighter products that offer more than just simple seating. Cities are also increasingly turning to participatory budgeting, where citizens decide directly on the appearance and furnishing of spaces. We thus see a big market opportunity in this segment.

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

We have never overestimated trends, our approach is consistent. In the case of outdoor furniture, our ambition was to make the garden into another room – that is, to maintain the comfort of the interior and offer the emotion of being outdoors. A similar principle applies to the furnishings, which we don’t see as a collection of benches and baskets. We want to bring the lightness of the garden into the public space – to offer deck chairs, tables, armchairs. This can create nooks and crannies that add additional functions to the space.

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

The highest level of innovation is found in the Ulita tiny house. It is a full-size dwelling in 25 square metres. It includes everything from appliances to integrated furniture to complete technologies for water heating, heating and heat recovery. The Ulita does not need a foundation, settles on ground screws and can be moved according to the owner’s needs.

E.E: What are your estimates for the rest of 2023?

The entire second half of this year will be marked by new furnishing collections. We are working on their gradual introduction into production, on marketing, and we are launching commercial activities. This is the foundation on which we will build in the coming years.
