Best of Stockholm Furniture & Lighting Fair 2017, Curated by Yellowtrace.

 

Stockholm Design Week and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair form the world’s largest meeting place for Scandinavian design. This event has developed into a melting pot where everyone who’s connected to, or is interested in Scandinavian design meets. So why the hell weren’t we there in person, you ask? Please don’t get me started. Alas, let’s not despair. Social media, press releases and our daily detective work ensure nobody misses out. Today we bring you our roundup of event highlights and best new gear unveiled at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017.

Ummmm… Might want to prepare yourself for a scroll-a-thon!

Sulla Bocca di Tutti (On Everybody’s Lips) by Note Design Studio // The coveted task of creating the central Design Bar at this year’s fair was awarded to Note Design Studio. Adopting the concept of ‘Sulla bocca di tutti’ (meaning “on everybody’s lips”), the studio’s goal was to create a warm, inspirational and generous experience. “The Design Bar is a full-scale restaurant that only exists for one week. This opens a door to many creative possibilities and we really want to take advantage of this opportunity and create something exciting. Over the years we have spent many wonderful hours in the Design Bar, and now we want to capture this feeling in our design. It is our ambition to create a space that feels warm, visual and inviting for everyone,” shares Note Design Studio’s Johannes Karlström.

Bento by YUUE Design at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017 | Yellowtrace

 

Bento by YUUE Design at Greenhouse // Bento is an interactive portable lamp designed by YUUE Design. “To turn on the lamp is as intuitive as pulling the band on the top. The light gently goes on automatically. Reversing the action will turn off the lamp. The structure is made possible thanks to the extendable pole and a flexible silicone lampshade. The cylinder chamber even allows for storage for small objects.”

LUNAR Table by Studio Marfa.

 

Studio Marfa at Greenouse // Hamburg-based Studio Marfa presented several new pieces, such as the SOMA Chair, BRETON shelf and LUNAR table. TheSOMA Chair interprets the draft of a lounge chair in an easy way. Limited through the stainless steel frame and shaped with vertical elements of a cantilever chair, SOMA generates a flexible and body adapting space. Inspired by the insignificant structure of wood paneling in concrete buildings, BRETON captures the beauty of this natural influence. In contrast to the heavy concrete surface the thin brass mountings support a light, almost levitating look. The LUNAR Table tells the story of new beginnings in a far away world – the childlike fantasies about infinite space and the incredible expectations in what may be hidden there.

Mr.Fräg at Greenhouse // Australian designer Frag Woodall, aka Mr.Fräg, presented his Dowel Stool, Cloud Table and Matisse Low Chair (not shown). Although we’ve featured both the table and the stool in the past, I think it’s worth while giving these pieces another round of applause.

Dowel is a family of stools that celebrate a rich combination of materials with polished solid brass or black seat and simple turned timber legs. Cloud series is a collection of three small occasional tables with tops manufactured in white Carrera marble with a honed silk surface, and legs turned out of American White Oak with a traditional Danish soap finish. Gorgeous.

Nikolai Kotlarczyk at Greenhouse // Our much loved Copenhagen-based Australian contributorNikolai Kotlarczyk (hooray!), presented his debut collection that references the aesthetic, ritualistic and emotive aspects of the catholic church in central Europe.

The series highlights the apparent contradictions of the church, a conflict of modesty and opulence, masculinity and feminism, modernity and tradition. These contradictions are highlighted through objects that mix robust materials with hazy transparencies, honest reflections with abstract figures, and feminine colourways with tribal motifs. The ritualistic act of the offering, the use of architectural mandalas and the idea of self reflection are all explored within the series. Go Nikolai!

The duos joint project, R255 easy chair, carries a strong graphic and minimal aesthetic which has taken it’s shape in the research of a sharp geometric profile and a hypnotic identity. The chair, made of 9mm moulded plywood, features a sculptural red seat, with thin black lines frame that creates an appearance of an elegant drawing.

Furnishing Utopia // Often credited as the first minimalists, the Shakers and their furniture have inspired countless modernist and contemporary designers all over the world. Yet with their presence confined to just a few sites in the United States, people rarely have the opportunity to experience Shaker objects in person and in context. Launched last year, Furnishing Utopia’s mission is to provide designers with direct exposure to original Shaker artifacts and demonstrate how the group’s ideas still prove influential. In Stockholm this year, the american brand showcased new pieces by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Norm Architects, Studio Gorm, Anderssen & Voll, Bertjan Pot, Vera & Kyte, amongst others.

Two New Chairs by OFFECCT // OFFECCT launched a number of products, although two pieces in particular caught my attention – Bike by Monica Förster and Phoenix by Luca Nichetto. The inspiration for Monica Förster’s Bike chair came from the cycling world. The chair is built with a strong steel tube frame and fitted with a leather seat which can be easily replaced if needed.

Luca Nichetto’s Phoenix chair is a prime example of Offecct’s Lifecircle philosophy. Every detail has been designed and produced to ensure that the life cycle of the whole piece is as sustainable as possible. The frame is made from recycled aluminium, the upholstered parts can easily be replaced and there is great flexibility regarding colours and materials. Fittingly, the chair is named after the bird in ancient mythology that continuously rises from its ashes.

La Lampe GRAS by DCW éditions: Icon of the 20th Century // In 1921, Bernard-Albin Gras designed a series of lamps for use in offices and in industrial environments. The GRAS lamp, as it was subsequently called, was astounding in its simple, robust design, with no screws nor welded joints seen in the basic form. In 1927, the Ravel company purchased the patent and started production of the GRAS lamps. So anything new from GRAS in Stockholm, you ask? No. But they are awesome and I love them and I thought I should remind you of them, ok?

Holocene Oil Lamp Collection by Wästberg // Swedish lighting brand Wästberg’s philosophy is bringing back light to human proximity. The company presented a light designed by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken dubbed ‘W172 Bokeh’, a powerful pendant and floor lamp composed of two contrasting elements – an industrial and highly specialised aluminium heat sink, cooling the central high power LED, and a more human, softer and recognisable bell, blown in etched glass.

Made from brass, the Holocene collection was created in collaboration with some of the most influential players in contemporary design resulting in two oil lamps – a round-bottomed one by Ilse Crawford and a cylindrical design by architect David Chipperfield. The third product is a candlestick holder by Jasper Morrison – a simple nub made to hold a single candle.

Bolon Flooring Jean Nouvel at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017 | Yellowtrace

 

New Flooring Collection by Jean Nouvel for Bolon // With its clean material expression and flexible application, the Bolon collection by Jean Nouvel is a flooring concept comprised of six colour signatures. A departure from Bolon’s typically designer-driven flooring, this architectural edition was conceived with spatiality in mind. The result is a flooring with a textural, hand-woven effect created of woven vinyl in combinations of black, grey, red and blue.

This collaboration marks Bolon’s first ever architect-driven flooring concept and directly addresses the concerns of architects in its concept and execution. Colour panes make it possible to have complete control and flexibility within the interior. The flooring amplifies the interior geometry, making it possible to experiment with the layout and the natural circulation within an interior space.

BAUX Patterns by Form Us With Love // And finally, BAUX launched ‘BAUX Patterns’ a catalogue of ideas designed by Form Us With Love. Catered to specific features, the platform becomes a short-cut to more than five hundred—diverse and filtered—wall patterns, combining the beauty of design with the durability of the BAUX panel properties.

After discovering that architects and designers found ‘an infinitive choice’ a little exhausting, Form Us With Love in collaboration with BAUX, designed a platform of monochrome and colourful patterns ready to be mounted on any wall. By using twenty-five colours, in a series of 3x3m recurring patterns, Form Us With Love has created a vast and accessible catalogue of perfectly panelled timber wool wallpapers.

Ok, guys. I’m done!
