The Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is one of the major shows where almost everything happens about design each year. Holy ground of design, it is in this kind of place that trends take shape and are emerging for the coming year, as well as the moment when talents until then emerging gradually pass from the shadows to the light... Back on which will influence 2017.
Of all the young designers present at the Stockholm, it's the Canadian duo KNAUF AND BROWN which was awarded the "rising star" mention. thanks to a collection "mature and sophisticated". The side table Vent Occasional is somewhat confusing at first sight, by its perforated plate, but it is evident that its graphic aspect really brings something new. As for the credence table Keefer, presented under a bamboo veil, it makes it possible to store/hide objects in an amazing and almost funny way. Here are very talented people!

His singular silhouette has remained in the minds of many of us. Its forms seem new and virgin of all imitation, and its pressed wood veneer is impeccable.

In the comfort family, we ask BLÄSTATION and their new modular seating system Bob, whose "almost infinite configurations". earned them the Grand Prize of the Editor's Choice Awards from Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. For this project, the designers Thomas Bernstrand and Stefan Borselius challenged themselves of achieving a sofa with the least possible grip on the ground and very modular. Successful bet.

Comfort is not only a matter of curling, but also a way to feel good in a given space. GLIMAKRA, a famous Swedish brand for its acoustic solutions, appealed to the designer Johan Kauppi for its collection Wakufuru: composed of several benches and tables, each piece sees its sound effects reduced thanks to a coating of applied felt.

Seen in a side exhibition.
This year, the designer Tom Dixon came especially to present two new creations: the wall luminaire Void and the chandelier Plane. As usual, he delivers two lighting systems with polished-mirror reliefs, enveloped in gold and copper effects. When the former offers a directional light, the latter offers a more diffuse light, almost fading behind the artwork character of the form that shelters it.
"The brass-plated steel structures can be rotated to create different configurations and mysterious optical illusions. »
GLIMAKRA was definitely the focus of attention at this show Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.

WÄSTBERG, on the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, Had the audacity and intelligence to present a series of luminaires without electricity. In other words candles, but where it does its effect is that the word "candles" is never used. As if it were fixtures of a new kind.
