Hi five! Join noo.ma’s 5th birthday celebrations
When in 2017 we launched noo.ma, we didn’t know what to expect. We started off as two friends trying to build something fresh and bold, with high hopes of what noo.ma could become. Our purpose was always clear – to create a global, sustainable, affordable, D2C design brand with unique products for every part of your home.
- Damian Goliński, co-founder
So here we are: in November 2022, 5 years after it’s launch, noo.ma is composed of a team of 40 people and has already delivered products to over 40 000 customers all over Europe. It’s a deeply joyful moment — to realize that we made it this far. Happy birthday to us! Let’s mark the occasion and recall the biggest successes and challenges of the past year.
A year of multi-way growth
Last twelve months were an exciting time for our designers. A process of exploring ever-new paths resulted in a twin track development of two product branches: bigger furnitures and small décor objects. Our efforts led to creating more than 20 brand new designs, mostly in entirely new categories, such as sofas and armchairs, lighting, and textiles.
When working on the new designs our focus was on exploring the ways of using different materials. We launched larger than ever number of pieces with elements made of solid wood, textiles, ceramics and variously processed glass. This only worked up our appetite for further exploration in this field.
Without doubt, the past year was marked by the statement: go bold or go home. With all respect to monochrome lovers — we still have a lot in common — developing the new, unconventional colorful finishes of our furniture and accessories turned out to be an utterly fun experience.
But it was even more thrilling to see the cheerful orange, sweet lilac, deep red and elegant green combined in the noo.ma themed interiors. The colorful transformation into the feel-good living is real; let these photos speak for themselves.
New thriving warehouse
During the fifth year of noo.ma's life we started a fundamental operational changeover by putting into use a new, entirely innovative warehouse, thereby achieving a significant milestone we’re extremely proud of.
We launched a universal space that can be modified depending on our needs. The new warehouse space is almost 8.5 times bigger and 3 times higher than the previous building, and it’s equipped with a number of reloading docks. Thanks to that, we were able to streamline the shipping processes by 90% compared to the corresponding period last year.
The evolution of our logistics comes as a challenge in terms of maintaining sustainable procedures. Our warehouse was granted with BREEAM certificate — a proof that it was constructed sustainably and with respect for environment.
Making waves in the business
Not to brag, but looks like our founders, Cyprian Bieniarz and Damian Goliński have recently become hot names in the industry. First, they have been listed in the prestigious 30 under 30 ranking announced yearly by Forbes Poland magazine. Then, only a week ago, noo.ma took 7th place in Deloitte Technology Fast 50 — a renowned list of the fastest growing companies in Central Europe. Congratulations Damian, Cyprian and all the rest of noo.ma’s team! It’s a pure pleasure to gain such recognition.
We gladly see our furniture and accessories being warmly welcomed in more and more interiors each day. We were pleased to step into the homes of inspiring personas and the headquarters of one-of-a-kind enterprises. If you happened to miss these brilliant home stories and venue reveals, here’s a quick recap of the best bits:
Last but not least, time for warm words of gratitude. Shout out to you for giving us motivation to move forward. Your soulful interiors once again reminded us that people are what make house a home. Being let into your everydayness is the clearest evidence of appreciation.
