The Latest From Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2019

It’s no secret that Scandinavian design is among the best in the world. Seamlessly blending form with function and creating pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but will last for years to come, it transcends trends and opts for timelessness – all without being boring. As shown at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair each year, Scandinavian design applies these traditional principles to innovative and expressive design to create something new, covetable and genuinely useful.


Guest of Honour 028 1


Held at the Stockholmsmassan convention centre on 5 – 9 February, the 2019 fair was no exception. As well as presenting the latest in Scandinavian design, attendees were treated to a large installation from this year’s guest of honour: Chinese designers Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu of design duo Neri&Hu. Acting as the centrepiece of the fair, The Unfolding Village took the form of a long structure constructed from vertical slats of black timber, inspired by narrow alleyways found in Chinese villages – a tribute to the country’s disappearing villages and way of life.




Among the exhibitors was Blå Station, the Swedish brand that seeks to create furniture that offers something new and a little unexpected. Following the success of the launch of BOB Job at Orgatec 2018, Blå Station brought the collection (designed for flexible, activity-based work spaces) to Stockholm with new partitions in six different sizes, as well as introducing BOB Home, a deeper, softer and homier version of the brand’s original BOB sofa system. BOB Light also made its first appearance: a dimmable, overhead lamp that rises up around the outside backrest to cast light where it is needed.

Building further on existing designs, Blå Station also introduced a three-seater sofa version of the contemporary Åhus chair and a standalone take on the sculptural Jack table, this time without the electrical outlet and aptly named ‘Jackless’.




Adding two new table designs to their collection, Blå Station introduced Bubble, a playful design composed of circular shapes in dark and neutral tones, and Bucket, a glass table top with a large cylinder piercing through that can be filled with flowers or bottles of wine or left empty to be enjoyed in all its simplicity.




From Stone Designs came Arc - sound-absorbing wall panels inspired by the arcades of the Colosseum in Rome, while carpenter, artist and designer Fredrik Paulsen’s first creation for Blå Station, the Röhsska chair, was also presented – a simple design constructed from 150-year-old beech from Skåne and Swedish pine plywood.
