    Last week I shared with you my favourite new furniture and products from last month’s Stockholm Design Week 2013 and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair (see the post here). Today’s post is Part II of my Stockholm review, showcasing my top selections of new lighting and interesting installations that took place during the design week.

    Ch-ch-chek it out!

    Snow-capped mountain installation by Nendo // As this year’s Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair guest of honour, Nendo were invited to create an installation at the entry to the fair. Nendo’s aim was to create a large scale ‘object’ with the smallest possible amount of material. The installation utilises 80 sheets of foam core which was laser cut and stretched on site to create ethereal walls with 3-diensioal qualities. Legendary.

    ‘The Picnic’ by Raw Edges Studio for Kvadrat // This incredible textile installation was made out of 20 Kvadrat fabrics, formed into a large polychromatic curtain containing approximately 1,500 straps. The installation speaks of the concept, which was to create a picnic scene in an enchanted forest atmosphere. Stunning, no? In the words of the designers - ‘Wooden cabin, soft roof tiles, fish skin and picnic under a weeping willow, all mixed in a massive pot with Kvadrat swatches. Served within a commercial fair with our aspiration to create a relaxing, surreal situation but also very warm welcoming.’
