Nordiska Kök Wooden new Kitchen designs

February 16, 2019


Nordiska Kök , or in English Nordic Kitchens, have so much strong roots in Nordic design that even the name of the company couldn’t but reflect that. Kitchens to live in, unique and tailor-made to suit everyones life, today and tomorrow. All their kitchens are built to be timeless and last for years, and to leave the lightest possible footprint on world resources. Locally produced in their carpentry workshop near Gothenburg, Nordiska Kök kitchens are built entirely from scratch based on customer needs and wishes. This means that you not only get a kitchen you can live in and enjoy for a long time, but also a kitchen based on your very own choices. I particularly like their wooden choices, although all their designs are quite beautiful. Not as expensive as you might think either for a completely bespoke kitchen with all appliances included. One of my favorites I am showing today below, although funnily enough I might have gone for something lighter in color, though I would definitely keep the design!

Spatial Sensibilities For Frama

February 14, 2019


There were many great venues this year to visit in Stockholm during the fair, in fact so many that while I had RSVP to only as many I thought I would be able to attend, time between them , transportation and weather made it impossible to follow my schedule to the letter. I missed for example the opening night for Spatial Sensibilities, an exhibition curated by Frama showcasing their selection of products and first previews from the Permanent Collection in the newly renovated apartment of Architect Andreas Martin-Löf. I made it there the next day however and I had just enough time to chat a little bit with my friends from Frama and shoot some of the space available (the whole apartment was not ready yet). From what I have seen I can tell you that there is a lot to look forward from Frama this year but also, this is going to be an apartment that will be featured a lot in magazines and blogazines. When I was shooting the sun was shining so bright, it created beautiful but also very dramatic shadows all around the apartment. I edited the photos for todays post a little bit differently than usual in order to bring out the feeling of the moment, I hope I did it justice and you like them.

Check Frama for their news, and look out for one of my favorites (unfortunately the photos did not do them justice so I am not posting any) of the new Japanese cutlery!

Mornington Mornings

February 9, 2019


I have been in Stockholm for the whole week, yet this time around it was even more hectic than before so I didn’t have time to update the blog at all. You see I decided that maybe I should do a cool sort of vlog type video, instead of neverending stories on instagram, so I will take you to the backstage of the experience this time around. However jokes on me, first of all this meant I had even more work to do plus it took so much more of my time, and second and even worse, as you might know if you are following me on instagram, somewhere between a cancelled flight back home yesterday and rebooking the next one, my luggage didn’t make it home with me. I am still waiting for it , all my cameras and equipment is inside, but I did have some of the material on cloud (not the videos) so I could edit some of the photos on an old pc at home and start sharing the week with you. (While scrolling down, right click and open in a new window the photos that are horizontal like the one below to see them in bigger size!)

I will start with where I stayed during the week, at the hotel Mornington located in Nybrogatan 53 Stockholm city. I seem to always stay in this cozy hotel during the February Furniture and Light fair, and if you have read my instagram post about it here then you will know why. It is one of my favorite hotels regardless in Stockholm so I am beyond grateful I am able to stay here every year so far, it is warm and cozy, with great breakfast and facilities, while it is in the heart of the city right next to the metro station and Alma (and all bathrooms are filled with LA Bruket toiletries). And if this wasn’t enough , I just discovered a great sushi place next to it that is budget friendly (generally there are great restaurants around for an elevated food experience plus the hotels own restaurant). If you decide to visit Stockholm there are many hotels to choose from, but Mornington for me is definitely one of the best (plus it is listed as one of the 10 top hotels so it is not only me).

Ask for a room on the second floor so you can get a similar to the one I am showing today ( I stayed in the room 212 and Elisabeth  stayed in 210 so we were right next to each other with mirrored rooms!) , and enjoy a cosy stay! Every room is slightly different however, here is some highlights for this room for me :

  1. Extended almost walk in wardrobe : It was covered with a curtain so everything in my room was neat while I could just pull the curtain and leave the mess inside (safe, fridge, closet, iron board, iron,soft bathrobe, hair drier were all in there).
  2. Big working area with big windows : This is somewhat of a standard but I really liked how mine stretched so far from wall to wall.
  3. The bathroom was right next to the exit door in its own hallway, I felt like I was in a suite!

The New Restaurant at Stockholm’s National Museum

February 4, 2019


Five years and after extensive renovation , Stockholm’s National Museum of Fine Arts, finally opened its doors to the public again.  One of the spaces that has been most anticipated is the new restaurant and cafe that is layered across three ground floor galleries previously non accessible. Some of Swedens most talented designers joined forces in order to realise this artistic project that involved exploring new materials and exciting new methods. The collaboration resulted to NM& – En Ny Samling, a contemporary collection of furniture, light fittings, tableware and other decorative objects that celebrate the unfinished and uncertain in a House already filled with artistic masterpieces. Matti KlenellTAF StudioCarina Seth Andersson and Stina Löfgren, are only a part of the process of creating the NM& collection which involved 32 designers and 21 manufacturers from all over the Nordic countries.

While this collaboration is impressive, it is not the teams first venture into designing with a broader series in mind.  During 2012–2014, the Swedish designers worked together with Taiwanese artisans to create a series of contemporary objects made with ancient lacquer techniques with the title “A New Layer” . It was not long before the project gained international fame which brought more collaborations into the fold and later named “A New Layer II: Crafting Identities / Design Stories from Taiwan“.

Materials such as wood, metal, ceramics and glass often give the “soul” to the whole project and with the National Museum in mind the team created a space with truly unique character. What came out of the collaboration is a collection of more than 80 entirely new designed objects – each one given an archive code starting with NM& 001 similar to a museum inventory number – grounded in a shared palette of muted colors, eclectic materials and unpretentious craftsmanship. Contemporary and bold, they nevertheless embody the Nordic heritage. As the team explains,

”Each product in the NM& collection has a sometimes messy but always well documented pedigree around its origins, and just as we hoped somewhere at the beginning of our journey, the overall final picture of a place, our place right here, right now, is just as motley and unpredictable as we hoped it would be”.

I am really looking forward to seeing these designs this week and speak with the designers myself and the producers, and also very much looking forward to dining at the new restaurant. Follow me this week on stories and instagram with short updates on the blog to see more through my unique perspective!
