Last month, from February 5 through 11, Stockholm hosted its annual week dedicated to Scandinavian design. Showcasing furniture and lighting, the festival dazzled visitors with hundreds of events and diverse exhibitors, showrooms, galleries, residences, hotels, and studios throughout the city. We take a quick look at just a few of the newest products that were introduced there, below.
Vienna Throws by Arthur Arbesser
In reference to historical Austrian patternmaking, most notably by Josef Hoffman and the Wiener Werkstätte, Vienna-born fashion designer Arbesser created a collection of three throws with stylistic geometric patterns that look like the block-printed variations from the aforementioned era.
Seven designers and architects created seven buttery-hued furnishings, including seating, storage, tables, and lighting. From left to right: Myko Chair by Stefan Borselius, Persimmon Lamp L by Note, Gito sideboard by Diiis studio, Spisolini chair by Andreas Engesvik, Enclose Lounge Chair by Norm Architects, Hawu shelf by Diiis Studio, and Poppy Low pouf by Nina Jobs.
The New Order 2.0 Collection
Celebrating the collaborative launch of their new workplace accessories collection with the Finnish furniture-maker, HAY transformed the Gulled showroom into a brightly adorned office space for design week. Among a whole range of office products, the vibrant collection includes two vases, polychromatic translucent glass containers, and a host of storage trays bathed in radiant colorways.
For Snøhetta’s first lighting collection, the design firm devised charred timber lamps fitted with a suspended eave. The series, initially developed for the Treehotel in Harads, Sweden, comprises a wall-mounted lamp, a table lamp, and a floor lamp.
Fossil no 1 coffee table
The Whole Elements by Anna Bera
At the Greenhouse, a venue for independent and emerging designers, Polish artist and woodcarver Anna Bera exhibited her tactile, handcrafted wooden furniture. Created in her studio—the Whole Elements in the Świętokrzyskie Mountains—the Fossils solid-oak coffee table is fashioned with openings that allow individual pieces of crockery to fit snugly.
