Where can I download the cell phone? It is a priority in today's public rooms can be clearly seen at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, where it was displayed in both table, chairs and armchairs with built-in electrical outlet. In some cases, the furniture is also ihoppusslade to hybridmöbler where, for example, the number of seats and/or tables, silencer, tidningsförvaring and lighting tailored to the client's wishes.
Very at the fair, just like last year, adapted to the type of loungemiljöer that now appear in everything from shopping centres to offices, libraries, and schools. But beyond the rechargeable hybridmöblerna it is as if innovation is tight. In all cases, in the large, established möbeltillverkarnas stands.
the department for young people, oetablerade, which I find one of the fair's most innovative feature. Our time, many open environments requires the attenuation, and Lovisa Norrsell, that goes at the Swedish school of textiles in Borås, has developed a fabric which has the potential to become a true innovative room divider.sound-absorbing room divider by Louisa Norrsell Photo: Lovisa Norrsell
Norrsells self-supporting, three-dimensional weave of polyester and twisted polyethylene is both malleable and lightweight, and therefore flexible. Unlike naturmaterialblandningar can also this type of synthetic material can be melted down and reused, so the life cycle perspective is given from the start. That fabric also is decorative in its irregular structure is a bonus you get with the purchase.
”Where are we going?” are otherwise not as the most high priority issue during the design week. However, it is a record that asks ”Where are we going?” and it need not be so reactionary as it might sound.
have allowed the interior designer Lars Bulow and designer Anna Kraitz dig into the Malmsten store, where 2 000 the sketches were expecting. At the fair, they present now an ”Archive Collection”. Neat, bright furniture that will work as well in today's small homes in the 1930-1960-talsmiljöer they were originally developed for. Carl Hansen & Søn brings new life to the Bodil Kjaers architectural line of furniture ”Indoor Outdoor” from 1959 and Svenskt Tenn in the project ”Heritage” made the now stockholm-based Italian designer Luca Nichetto inspired by a Josef Frank pattern, which resulted in a series of colorful glass lamps produced in the Nichettos former home island of Murano.
Both the past and framtidskoppling are also available in the project that permeates this year's show most of all: the National museum of fine arts re-opened after five years of renovation. Museirestaurangen is one of the country's most extensive public interior decorating and design assignments in decades. From furniture to vases, lamps, crockery, cutlery and glass nyritades for the project, and at the exhibition unveils many of the involved producers or piece of furniture for mass production.
The restaurant was not a classic interior, in the sense that there was a client and an interior designer. Instead, it was a kind of collaboration of unprecedented magnitude. The project was carried out by a loose-knit group, consisting of inredningsarkitekterna Matti Klenell, Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom, glasformgivaren and potter, Carina Seth Andersson and graphic designer Stina Löfgren. However, the project team hired a twenty-something colleagues to design furniture and objects, and those involved in the turn, about 30 nordic, mostly Swedish, producers, big and small.
this model can serve as inspiration for future public office. Both inredningsarkitekturen and the Swedish furniture industry would benefit from more cooperation. The exhibition ”NM A new collection,” shown during the fair in the back of A hall. Fronts fun, bendable lamp ”Curve”, which also appears in zero's booth, belongs to my favourites, as well as Mathieu Gustafsson resourceful mirror ”the Butler” for böjträföretaget Gemla.
Wood, especially pine and spruce, as usual, the most prevalent materials at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. In my memory it's two in detail, completed the furniture of oak that remain: Christian Halleröds mobile wardrobe for Three Centuries and Stefan Borselius bookshelf ”Icon” for Stolab.
But in particular I carry with me from this year's show is the many sculptural light fittings. Not least the seemingly papperslätta ”Whirl” of Ingegärd Raman for Örsjö and ”Overlap” by Michael Anastassiades for Flos.
