Egoé life is a collection of outdoor furniture for use in homes, cafe and restaurant gardens, and outdoor offices.
Only an outdoor environment can break through our inner and outer barriers, and spark a renewal of our minds and bodies. For this reason, we have to leave our comfort zone and seek experience.
This is the philosophy of Egoé. We want our products to enrich the lives of those those who just have to be outdoors. For the garden, there's Egoé life outdoor furniture; for the road, there's the Egoé nest camping installation; and for a whole range of other outdoor leisure activities, there's Egoé move. No matter the season, we want you to feel at home, outside.
We are Egoé - specialists of life outdoors.
How it all began
One summer long, long ago, a group of friends and designers from the Czech company mmcité tried to find some outdoor furniture for their gardens and terraces. But no matter how hard they tried, they could not find the right combination of quality and innovation. The furniture available was, quite frankly, just a bit lame.
Fortunately, however, the folks from mmcité had experience in designing and producing urban furniture, so they decided to start their own brand. The goal was not to design something exclusive, but to create a modest and refined collection that's in harmony with its surroundings. Egoé was thus born.
What we're all about
Every Egoé product is made to be a natural part of its environment. Our top priorities are utility and quality, and our design is informed by our experience with urban furniture. This not only means that we know how to pick the right materials, but that we know how to integrate furniture with its environment for better enjoyment of the outdoors.
Thanks to over 25 years of experience, we are not afraid to break the taboo. We like new shapes, angles and combinations. Who needs outdoor furniture to be light? Only producers who recommend you cover it every time it rains. Egoé's robust and honest-to-goodness furniture can be used anywhere you want, all year round.
Be in, go out

Sustainability, right here at home
Every item is made at our production complex in Bílovice using high-quality materials – no intermediate goods from the Far East. Our processes are optimized for quality, and the result is a collection that can last. In other words, you can proudly hand our tables down to your children, together with all the memories around them.
We also have our very own design studio, Egoé studio. While most manufacturers rely on external designers, the vast majority of our ideas come from under our own roof. This lets us think harder about every detail, and move faster from design to prototype. Before you know it, our products are where they belong – outside.
What we are working on
When we look around us, we can't help but notice that people want to feel just as good outside as they do in their homes – comfortable, relaxed and most importantly, at peace. Wouldn't you want to have an office under the pergola? Or a living room under the stars? We sure did. That's why we decided to focus on development and production of comfortable and soft outdoor seating.
Not only is it comfy, but it's made to survive any kind of weather. We use textiles that are UV-stable, and resistant to the elements. However, if water does happen to get into the upholstery, its Dryfeel outdoor foam has an open cell structure that allows water to flow out. This protects against bacteria and mold, and promotes air flow for faster drying.
We produce ideas
Accept responsibility for the result. That is the most important precondition for a good idea to end up not only in our head or on paper. Therefore, we have produce the ideas by ourselves right from the start. The history of the production facilities of today’s Egoé group in Bílovice reaches back to 1997. The whole process at Egoé is under one roof – from the discussion about the original idea, making and adjusting the drawings, mass or custom-made production, logistics, installation to the comprehensive services. Worldwide. We can rely on a strong background and many years of experience.
All furniture and our modular system Leva are produced at our premises in Bílovice. The surface treatment technologies are concentrated in two production companies and include sandblasting, galvanizing, wet and powder coating and the complete wood and metal processing facilities. Our competitive advantage and a crucial step towards sustainability is our unique line for thermal modification of wood which we gained in 2022. Thus, we are able to gradually replace tropical wood and reduce the footprint of our end products. In the near future, we intend to use thermally modified wood for most of our products.
We put a strong focus on sustainability at all stages of our activities from the design work, the choice of materials and technological processes right up to the logistics. We try to minimise negative impacts on the environment while not jeopardising the stability of the company in the process. This is how we understand sustainability. Most production facilities are heated by the waste from our wood processing hall. Our boiler is controlled automatically and belongs to the highest emissions efficiency class. We use the excess heat for water heating. Interesting heating sources can also be found in the smaller halls. These are recuperation units which use waste heat created by compressors and kilns.
