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 on the show of Stockholm, it's the Canadian duo KNAUF AND BROWN who was Hailed from the words "Rising Star" Thanks to a "mature and sophisticated" collection. The extra 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!
-> SPECIFICATIONS: Vent Occasional: Anodised aluminium side table, height: 41 cm, length: 46 cm, width: 28 cm (H 16 in x W 18 in x D 11 inches). Keefer Credenza in steel and bamboo beads, ash, height: 76 cm, length: 102 cm, width: 46 cm (H 30 x W 40 in x D 18 inches). FREE TO EDITION.
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. Here is Lucky, the new chair of BLÄSTATION and created by the designer Luka Stepan. For those who spend a lot of time on Pinterest, you should have previously seen it as a prototype 😉
-> SPECIFICATIONS: Chair oak plywood, seat in fabric or leather covering. Total height: 73 cm, seat height: 46cm, width: 58 cm, depth: 49 cm. Design Luka Stepan 2017.
In the comfortable 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 of the 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.
-> SPECIFICATIONS: Sofa composed of 5 different modules of 26 centimeters in maximum width. Seat height: 40 cm, depth: 59 cm, total height: 72 cm. FSC certified plywood with moulded foam. Plastic legs. Many ranges of fabrics are available.
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.
-> SPECIFICATIONS: Table available in lengths 1200, 1600 and 2000 mm + assorted benches. Side table in square or rectangular format. Different colors of fabrics available for the top of the benches, felt thickness 3 mm.
If you feel a need for extraordinary, you enjoy without zero doubts the re-presentation of the present sitting in the auction Örnsbergsauktionen, self-produced by a collective of artists/designers whose Fredrik Paulsen, who offer us the remarkable Easy chair and the Glass + Steel chair, or the Milkshake Chair . by Lotta Lampa, theAuthentic Sources Armchair . by Clemence Seilles, and many others! Seen in a side exhibition.
This year, the designer Tom Dixon came specially to present two new creations: the wall light 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.
"Brass plated steel structures can be rotated to create different configurations and mysterious optical illusions."
GLIMAKRA has decidedly grabbed the attention on this show Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. After a series of acoustic furniture, here is Weave, a well Scandinavian spirit representative in its form as in its design: absorbent material in recycled bottles, and low-energy LED lighting are projected for this program. What to light without feeling guilty. Design Lukas Dahlen.
-> SPECIFICATIONS: 3 sizes available: lengths 1300 or 1900 mm for the two long formats, or diameter 700 mm for the round format. Birch structure with acoustic material in recycled PET bottles. Light source: 230V LED. Cable length: 200 mm.
Designed by Timo Niskanen for the Finnish lighting brand HIMMEE, Loop Giant is directly inspired by an obstacle of mini-golf or a freestyle ski ramp... Its proportions make it a light apart, almost strange, that we do not dare to approach and that has everything of a monumental art work.
-> SPECIFICATIONS: Aluminum structure. Dimensions 1800 x 1800 x 30 mm. Light source: LED. Weight: 10 kg. Also available in table lamp version.
I introduced you above the duo KNAUF AND BROWN, which won the term "rising Star". Well in their collection are also two luminaries, whose fine design and elegant delight us. The lamp Belcarra - a tribute to a neighborhood on the Canadian coast - Is inspired by the metal hoods above the wooden piles that secure the houses of the seaside. The table lamp Lloyd has a 360° rotating head in order to orient the light as we see fit.

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. The brand has appealed the designers Ilse Crawford, David Chipperfield and Jasper Morrison in order to create three products in the collection Holocene. Here is Holocene no.2 by the architect David Chipperfield.

FOSS, is the new range of fabrics presented by KVADRAT The Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. Simple and elegant, Foss creates an interesting tactile sensation in addition to its sophisticated appearance. Born from the meeting of the Norwegian textile designer Tone Barnung and danish designer Louise Sigvardt, this range of wool and linen will quickly wrap all sofas and armchairs to come.
This year Jaime Hayón was the star of the show. Guest of honour, the designer has created for the occasion, a pavilion featuring a retrospective of all of his most emblematic creationsinspired by a myriad of valuable architectural influences to the designer for a long time. The exhibition was organized by themes of choice: form sculpted, fauna and flora, popular culture, etc.
Another extraordinary installation that has not been able to escape you anyway is, The Design Bar monochrome all pink and red dressed, created for the occasion by the collective Note Design Studio. It is amazing to eat in such an atmosphere, but would not this be a great emerging trend?
Finally, in terms of trends and facilities, it was also noted during the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair a particular attraction for the dark interiors and cozy, as if the darkness of the world was contaminating us, but in a good way. Interior styling from LOTTA AGATON through the co-working space designed by THAM & VIDEGARD, we wrap ourselves in dark shades...
And that's for the major products and trends of this 2017 edition!
