A quiet Reflection

February 8, 2018

Yesterday I visited “A quiet Reflection” , the most sought after exhibition in Stockholm during the Stockholm design fair. Located in Östermalm , what used to be the old Mexican Embassy, now privately owned and halfway through renovation, the century old apartment is turned into an impromptu art exhibition by Annaleena Leino, in collaboration with Japanese producer Ariake, Wästberg and a hand picked selection of designers and artisans, for Residence. Carefully curated objects by both companies can be seen around the apartment, among my favorites the w171 alma lamp designed by Tham & Videgård and the w163 Lampyre designed by Inga Sempé, both by 

Wästberg. Another favorite of mine the Paperwood tables by Anderssen & Voll for 

Ariake in various sizes. All through the exhibition there are pieces of beautiful art on display, noted artists and artisans. 

This is the first time Ariaki is launched outside Japan, and the new collection, manufactured in the Japanese city of Morodomi, introduces furniture and details, including Staffan Holm, Norm Architects, Shin Azumi, Gabriel Tan, Anderssen & Voll, Zoe Mowat and Studio MK27.

At the exhibition you can also see works by Studio Matti Carlson, Dry Studio, Nick Ross, Anton Alvarez, Jenny Nordberg, Emma Bernhardt, Frama, Ann Ringstrand, Perspektive Studio, Arno Declercq, Erik Nordenhake, Berg Gallery and Christian Larsen Gallery.

Miss Clara and B&O play

November 25, 2017

Expenses and hotel accommodation was provided by B&O play.

I just came back from my Copenhagen/Stockholm short 3 days trip ( you can read more about the Copenhagen part here and here), if are not following me on Instagram, you missed on some amazing stories, from incredible sunrises in Copenhagen, to the coolest party in Stockholm ( and the reason I travelled there). However, I have been trying to update my twitter with photos from my stories, if you completely missed out, you can find some of them (not all however) here

We left Copenhagen on Thursday morning,to land in Stockholm, and a short tesla taxi ride later, arrived at Miss Clara hotel. It was my first time staying at Miss Clara, something that has been on my wishlist for a while now. The design of the boutique Nobis hotel is so beautiful, I was only sorry I was only to stay there for a night. A few hours later, we arrived at Alma ( a five-story structure with a mindful balance of work and social spaces ) for one of the coolest dinner parties, hosted by B&O play and Bang Olufsen. In company of friends and colleagues, we were presented with the new B&O play M3 speaker ( I talked about it a few days ago in the post Cecile Mantz for B&O play ), a truly amazing speaker, that packs as powerful design as it sounds.  

The restaurant, overseen by chefs Martin Brag and Leo Frodell serves meals exclusively for members and their guests, and on Thursday night we were treated with an amazing menu. At the end we were also surprised to find out we were going to be taking home with us an M3, that I put immediately to use in my room at Miss Clara. I travelled to Stockholm with my 

B&O play 

H9 headphones, but I love  having sound coming from a speaker in my room, I unpacked the M3 and made myself truly at home until the next day before checking out.

You can see some photos today of the room and the M3 and H9, I liked either having the M3 beside the bed or on the big windowsill where I spend quite some time sitting on the cushion with a blanket and my headphones before the party, working on my Macbook with some tea on the side. Don’t travel with headphones, but if you can, take a speaker with you as well! 

Oh, did I mention Miss Clara bathrooms are equipped with Byredo toiletries?

Stockholm : Mornington My Home away from home

February 13, 2017

Tomorrow I will be finishing up the post with photos of the news I shot while at the Furniture and Light fair, but today I thought it would be a good idea to show off the beautiful premises of Mornington hotel in Stockholm, my home away from home for the week.

Located in Nybrogatan 53 , close to the metro station and just a few minutes away from the best restaurants, cafes and shopping in the city, Mornington offers not only great location and service but also multiple newly renovated rooms to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Do ask for a room at the second floor for a similar look to mine, the stuff will do their best to accommodate you!This is my second time in Stockholm and the second time I have stayed at Mornington ( you can find the previous post  here). This time around due to visiting in winter, my photos turned up a little moodier, a little darker, but at the same time I think they convey my mood better.

Due to being extremely busy while in Stockholm, I did not spend as much time as I would have liked to in the room, however I still found time to enjoy a warm coffee by the window while answering emails early in the morning before going down for breakfast. It is these moments that I feel make for a good start of a day, no matter how busy!

Mornington Hotel in Stockholm

December 14, 2016

During my last stay in Stockholm a little while ago I had the pleasure of staying at the Mornington hotel in the heart of the city. Just a stone throw away from the metro station and a few minutes walking distance from an array of shops and restaurants, with its beautiful mellow style, brass, marble and its welcoming feeling, Mornington is a great place to stay while in Stockholm.

The hotel has a restaurant that is divided in different spaces with different design approaches. In the morning breakfast is served between the areas that stretch all the way to the lobby to enjoy your meal with a cup of coffee, read a newspaper or even pick a book from one of the shelves.

The lobby is equipped with large sitting areas, comfortable couches but also a corner with Macbooks that are available for anyone to use. By the windows, old style leather seats with brass small tables make for a perfect spot for a quick coffee while waiting for a friend.

I stayed in one of the newly renovated suites with a separate bedroom and a living room. The bathroom as well was separated in two with two different entrances which makes sharing the room very comfortable. Furnished with Gubi designs, And Tradition lamps , a full wall of String solution shelves and a carefully curated selection of antiques, the room was much comfortable as sleek with its design.

The bedroom itself was separated by double doors from the living room, however both spaces have direct access to the big balcony with a great view. A small desk in the bedroom served as the perfect spot for the mornings when I needed a little bit of time to send emails and catch up with my work.
