Accessibility is Always on Time

2022–05–10

Today, accessibility is a central part of our design brief and product development process, and something that is second nature to Nola. ‘Accessible’, just like ‘inclusive’, are more than keywords - they top the list of requirements for each and every product we design.

Diversity and Accessibility Inspire Cities for Everyone

2021–11–10

‘A city for everyone,’ sounds like a nice idea, and one that could even be too good to be true.

Bicycle Products

2021–08–30

Every day, cities evolve at a rapid pace, and the needs of urban cyclists grow with them. Today, city-dwellers are cycling more than ever before, which is good for the environment, and important for the well-being of all. As urban planning and infrastructure projects reflect these new priorities, our range of products for cyclists is meeting them too. They’re making it easier to choose to cycle, and more satisfying to leave the car in the garage. This selection of bike racks, bollards, bike sheds and other Nola products are designed to keep urban cyclists on the move.

Endless Summer: When Cities Open Seasonal Spaces All Year

2021–06–15

Summer­time in Sweden is unique. It’s a time when cities and their in­habi­tants come to life, and a season when tempo­rary parks and out­door products are being put in place. Then September rolls round, and the places, products and people dis­appear. Where do they all go? Nola thinks they should stay in place all year.
