I just came back from a one week long photo shoot in Copenhagen last night and today we start working with the preparations for Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018. This year we are doing 4 projects that we are all equally excited about.
First we are doing a 250 sqm large exhibition for Dux at Scenkonstens museum in Stockholm, the exhibition will be made like a loft living and contains most parts of DUX pieces in new covers by Lotta Agaton Interiors and I have also added some of my personal favourites like; art by Emma Bernhard and Åsa Stenerhag, sculptures by Bo Arenander, pieces from Jacksons rugs from Tisca, lamps by Gino Sarfatti..and more, don’t miss out..it will be open all week by invitations and to the public on Friday and Saturday.
At the fair we will be doing three stands, first and always my favourite, the stand for String Furniture, our dear client since many years. This year we are creating a complete String House to show the versatility of the shelf and to go with the new images we shot at villa Frösakull by Jonas Lindwall. String Furnitures stand will be in A 04:20
We are also doing the stand for our new client Tisca rugs who produces their rugs in pure wool and linen in Transylvania, you might have seen glimpses from the stand in Hannover a couple of weeks ago. I have also designed my first rug for them, in a yarn called Bella-so the rug is called Bella Lotta and was actually just made for my styling of the stand but turned out to be the best seller in Hannover. You find Tisca and Bella Lotta in stand B 09:25
Finally we will also be doing the styling of the stand made by Halleroed for our dear client Lintex, we have also had the pleasure of styling the photos for Lintex during the year which will be released during the fair along with the new furnitures by Halleroed, you find Lintex in stand B 04:25.
I have been a big fan of sculptor Bo Arenander for a long time. I was happy to feature some of his work at my Trend exhibition at Stockholm Furniture Fair last year and even happier a few weeks ago when I bought one of his pieces for myself. Next week he will be featured in an exhibition at Perspective Studio in Stockholm and he also have some work available at Odem Atelier.
We are in Cologne with our dear client String Furniture this weekend to set up this years first stand for them and this year we are building a String-house at the fairs, inspired by our 2018 String catalogue photoshoot in the amazing house Villa Frösakull by Jonas Lindvall. I hope you enjoy our String House and the new catalogue in Imm Cologne the upcoming week. See more images from the catalogue in our styling portfolio.
I just landed in Hannover to make the stand for the amazing Transylvanian rug company Tisca at Domotex, don’t miss out if you are visiting. Here is my moodboard for the stand all in natural colours and with furnitures from Team 7, Vitra and Artek.
We have just started up a new project for a private client, to develop an old barn into a full furnished summer home in one of the most beautiful spots at Gotland, Sweden. Here is a detail from our moodboard..and it kind of makes me crave for a barn like that for myself too!
The third issue of the annual bookazine My Residence is out now and I have had the privilege of styling several jobs in it, my favorite is the home of architect Anderas Martin Löf..and off course our own studio photographed by Erik Lefvander.
We had a lunch meeting today at Geco in Stockholm to have an update from all the brands they represent in Sweden such as Bulthaup, Rimadesio, Porro, Minotti and Boffi..and now we are all excited and can’t wait to start working with these beauties.
The LOEWE FOUNDATION presents the third exhibition in its Chance Encounters series, bringing together artists from various disciplines in order to explore unexpected conversations. This year ceramics by Sara Flynn are presented at the LOEWE Miami Design District store from December 5 to February 4. Love it!
