Studio Kaksikko - Stockholm Furniture Fair

My top picks from Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2017

Back in February, I went to Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair again – it’s the biggest meeting place for Scandinavian design in the world and it’s pretty epic. Spread across three, great, big halls at congress centre Stockholmsmässan, there are around 700 brands on show, with about 80% hailing from Scandinavia. So it’s true Scandinavian design heaven – from young, emerging brands to established greats, there’s always something new to discover. This year, I got the feeling that Scandinavian designers were trying to show that they were more than the cool, contemporary, monochrome minimalism they’ve become known for. There was a focus on sustainability, local craftsmanship and material details – New Nordic some might call it. They’re all aspects that have always been the backbone of Scandinavian design, but now there’s an emphasis on authenticity, warm minimalism and natural, earthy colours. Here I’ve picked out my highlights from the fair – including the latest product launches from my favourite names and hot talent to keep an eye out for.
