Ahhh, snowy Stockholm… You’re all right, you know. Photography by Nick Hughes.

 

Sooooo….. We finally made it to Stockholm this year, you guys. Can you believe it? Except, at this point, the whole trip already feels like a distant memory, but boy was it real while we were there.

The invite to Stockholm came back in early June last year, when I was asked to take part in Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair’s 4th annual Editor’s Choice Awards for Rising Star, Best Stand and Best Product at the fair. How could I refuse, of course, especially given that Stockholm is only an easy 24-hour flight from Sydney? Ha! But for us, Aussies, pretty much everywhere if far away, so I jumped at the opportunity to visit the design event that’s been very high on my radar for the last few years.

As someone who’s watched Stockholm Furniture Fair & Design Week closely from afar (an oxymoron, I realise), I had high expectations from the week that’s been leaving a steady trail of Scandinavian Design Bombs all over the internet. So naturally, my expectations were high.

The fair was a fantastic opportunity to see Scandinavian brands on home turf. The fair itself is intimate, (mostly) really beautifully presented and well edited. Although perhaps not the most groundbreaking design event of them all, the fair presents a fantastic snapshot of where Scandinavian design and all of its major brands are at right now.

Anyway, there’s so much more I could bang on about (you guys know me, right?) but I will let Nick’s amazing photos do most of the talking, with perhaps some of my comment in the captions help you navigate all the wonderful things we saw during the week.

Favourite new discovery – Vieser x Durat. Durat is a composite material made of 30% recycled plastic. The product, which itself is 100% recyclable, is manufactured by crushing the recycled plastic into granules, creating interesting, 3D surfaces with a warm, silky feel. This durable material is cast into sheets with almost three hundred colour tones and nine different prints available. Photography by Nick Hughes.

Based on the selection shown at the stand dedicated to the ‘NM& – A New Collection’, the design editor’s made the unprecedented decision to give the prize to the whole project. Many of the products on display could have won the best product prize in their own right, so the jury felt the only fair decision was to give the prize to the entire collection, and at the same time acknowledge the brilliant result of the incredibly successful collaboration.

Also, just in case this post wasn’t epic enough (hahaha, again, you know me – never accused of under-sharing!), I wanted to give you a little overview of some of my favourite new products released at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week.

So much Scando goodness, and a little bit more scrolling to do.

Sorry/ not sorry!

Love always,

Best Of Stockholm Design Week 2019, Greenhouse, Jamie Wolfond | Yellowtrace
Owl Floor Lamp by Canadian designer Jamie Wolfond. The design originated from the designer’s fascination with drinking straws – the lamp uses a flexible hose to transmit rotary motion to its shade. This allows for the shade to orbit 360 degrees around the bulb simply by rotating any part of the lamp’s stem.

Best Of Stockholm Design Week 2019, Greenhouse, Jamie Wolfond | Yellowtrace
Jamie Wolfond’s Pal Series utilizes bent laminated timber surfaces as an integral part of the collection’s structure. The result is a lightweight stackable chair, bench and dining table that can be shipped flat and assembled in seconds.

Best Of Stockholm Design Week 2019, Greenhouse, JUMBO | Yellowtrace
The Neotenic Collection by NYC-based design practice Jumbo. The collection is founded by simple shapes, short thick members, soft edges, and a clumsy appearance, “appealing to our biological imperative to nurture— to see ourselves in our surroundings and cherish the childlike.”

Bacteria lamp by German-born, Stockholm-based industrial designer Jan Klingler. I know what you’re thinking – eww, how gross, and I have to admit that I mirror your sentiment, but somehow these little fuckers are really starting to grow on me… Geddit?

Best Of Stockholm Design Week 2019, Greenhouse, Jan Klingler | Yellowtrace
In a crossover between science, art, and industrial design, the bacteria lamp centres on the idea that every living being and place has its own unique and personal microbiological fingerprint. 

Best Of Stockholm Design Week 2019, Greenhouse, Jan Klingler | Yellowtrace
Klingler suggests that samples can be taken from people, places or things that hold a position of importance, and are then grown into a unique piece in the form of commissioned work. May it be the location of a first date, a personal souvenir from a memorable journey, or the reminder of loved one far away – the possibilities are as individual as each one of us. Like I said, eww slash wow.
