SFF Stockholm 2017 : Part 2

February 18, 2017


As promised today I am sharing Part 2 from my time at Stockholm’s Furniture and Light fair with some of the things that caught my eye (Check part 1 here).

At Louis Poulsen their vision is to create designs that forms light. To complement the environment with just the right light. Light which gives a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. The Panthella MINI (as seen above) is a smaller version of Verner Panton’s classic lamp from 1971, and I think it embodies that vision perfectly. As captured above, in a combination of black and white acrylic, both lamps emanate a soft light that hugs their environment in the softest way. 

 A few weeks ago I wrote about the news from &Tradition , I was looking forward to seeing some of the new designs and additions and I was not disappointed. Some of my favorites include the brand new In Between stools and the Working Title table lamp as seen above while I also spotted new sizes (below) for the very successful Fly series by Space Copenhagen : A new one seater and a taller sofa table. 

One of the places I absolutely want to visit next time I am in Copenhagen (hopefully before 3 days of design in June) is the Frama headquarter and Studio Store, located in central Copenhagen in the historic and protected neighborhood of Nyboder. I stopped by their stand and was treated to the beautiful Frama world of hues and unique craftsmanship. Frama won this years award for Kitchen of the year at Elle Decoration Swedish awards, it is always so great to see more ideas come from the team and be able to experience their universe first hand.  


I spend a long time at Muuto stand where I experienced first hand some of my favorites from the new designs :  The Outline chair by Anderssen & Voll , the new Ripple throw by Margrethe Odgaard and the beautiful new Workshop chair by Cecilie Manz (all news can be found here ). A seen above in an office styling setting, the Ambit lamps in new dusty blue color, the beautiful Fiber side chairs, and the Folded shelves on the wall in the background in olive color. Below something that has been on my wishlist, the Compile shelf system in grey (combination 2).

At Skagerak the new Hven series designed by Swedish Anton Björsing were the center of attention and rightfully so. The armchairs and tables are designed to make you invite your family and friends over a little more often. Build with high comfort, a light and simple expression and from FSC-certified wood, Hven is a long-term minded series with regard to aesthetics, functionality and environment. 


Last but not least at the press brunch at Gubi, we were treated with some of this seasons exciting news. most notable the new upholsteries for the Beetle Dining chairs (as seen above) and the new Pedrera  Ana Pendant Lamp Black,created as a tribute by Ruiz Millet to the designer of the original Pedrera lamps (as seen below).

SFF Stockholm 2017 : Part 1

February 17, 2017


Today I will be sharing some of the news from Stockholm’s Furniture and Light fair I attended a few days ago. I had my camera out the whole time trying to get opportunities for photos in the crowded booths and while I didn’t think I would be lucky, when editing I realized I had more photos that I though so I will be splitting this post in two parts. I hope you enjoy my tour around my favorite stands in SFF17 !



I have already featured some of Menu’s news on the blog (check here for the press photos), so I was very much looking forward to seeing some of the much anticipated designs up and close, and I was not disappointed. The Tailor sofa (above) that is meant to be seen by all sides as per designers Rui Alves words was a delight see, while in the same photo we can catch a glimpse of the new Afteroom bar stool by talented young Taiwanese duo Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei and hanging above them the Cast Pendant which embodies Menu’s philosophy of soft minimalism. A detail on the far left of the same photo above reveals a new color/material  for the Pepe Marble Mirror designed by Studio Pepe and a closer look at the delicate Afteroom bar stool. On the last photo of the Menu highlights the much photographed front of the booth featured the September sofa designed by Theresa Arns. 

I was delighted to see a fresh design for the booth of Ferm Living as well (photo above taken in the Fair). Usually very visually crowded with news, this years design of the room allowed for more negative space which I felt brought an elegance that suited Ferm Living style. Among the news (photo below) we can see the Punctual shelf in new Rose color, while on the shelf the Buckle Jars in all 3 color variations, the new Medley Knit Cushions, Plant Box in Ochre and a glimpse of the Herman Chairs in the front of the photo (all news can be found at News – Living SS17).


I could not help but stop at String and take some photos. This year the stand ,dressed in white, presents a contrast from their colorful press photos (as featured a few weeks ago on the blog), which I feel accentuated even more the lines and minimalism of the classic design. New shelves and new additions where incorporated neatly into the elegant space with the new wardrobe additions displayed beautifully on one of the walls (photo below). 

Fritz Hansen was always so crowded, a second visit was required in order to capture some of the highlights. As seen above the office of Fritz was re imagined and displayed as a cozy space with mood boards providing plenty of inspiration and an insight of Fritz Hansens world of design. Below Arne Jacobsens series 7 chairs gets a new colorful look. Fritz Hansen’s Choice 2017 is a new interpretation of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Series 7 that imbues the functional, minimalist Danish design form with the soft, feminine colours of Japanese cherry blossoms.The shell of this special 2017 edition is available in two colours – a deep-red merlot and a serene, pastel nude – developed and perfected over time in the Fritz Hansen design studio to match the new rose gold coating on the four-legged base.


Last but not least for todays blogpost a detail at the Vitra stand that caught my eye. I love seeing moodboards and a behind the scenes look and this photo captured that feeling perfectly.


Looking forward to reveal part two tomorrow with more news and highlights!

Lotta Agatons Trends Exhibition at Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair

February 11, 2017


Contrasts is the underlying theme for and name of the Trend Exhibition 2017/18, which has been created by stylist Lotta Agaton, one of the main attractions in Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair this year. The exhibition offers contrasts in materials and furniture as well as surprising combinations. The spaces are interconnected so visitors can see from one to another and vice versa.

The exhibition space is my reflection of our times. I wanted to create a space with no set rules and to inspire people to play more with what they already have and use new materials, colours and textures. I wanted to create a space where contrasting materials and colours met in unexpected ways and show that a room and its furnitures could behave in a new way just by changing the wall colour. I have chosen furnitures and products that all have a clean lines and timeless design. When lined up together all the furnitures would fit together but by placing them in rooms with different wall colors and change the fabric, every room and piece of furniture got a totally different mood. : Lotta Agaton

From an all pink office , to a green bathroom, the perfect beige kitchen, the blue dining room and the red terra cotta bedroom, Lotta Agaton defines a trend that is here to stay for a while, the one that comfort and safety combine perfectly with style and high end furnishings. Darker, warmer and more embracing, one by one the rooms in the makeshift house invite us to stay for a while.


My photos depict a close up look due to only bringing with me only one 85mm prime lens for my camera. For wider perspective beautiful imagery, visit my talented colleagues Elisabeth Heier blog post , with whom I traveled with to the fair.
