Best in Show: A Recap of Stockholm Design Week

Posted by Bolon on February 13, 2019

Stockholm Design Week 2019 has come to an end, and all eyes of the design world are recovering after an eventful week. From creative exhibitions to unique house installations and thrilling parties, we collected some of the highlights from Scandinavia's coolest design event.

What we were up to:

@the SFF fair >>

The Bolon installation during the week premiered Diversity, a new flooring collection launched at the fair. Playing on the idea of perspectives, the exhibition displayed the three main patterns of Diversity – Bling, Buzz and Bouquet – three floorings which work best when combined together.

Neri&Hu – Guest of Honor 2019

Neri&Hu's Guest of Honor exhibition, the unfolding village, raises international awareness on the disappearance of Chinese traditional villages. The Bolon Jean Nouvel No. 3 was being used all over the 200 square meters surface and looked as stunning as always.

Things and happenings that made us go quiet due to inspiration overload >>

BAUX – 100 % sustainable

Premiering their latest product at the Stockholm fair, BAUX new acoustic panels are truly something new and exciting.

Working with a team of chemists specialising in Biomimicry, the art of imitating nature's own processes, the chemical-free, pressed material is formed of organic, cellulosic fibres sourced from sustainably harvested Swedish trees.

Feeling tactile, while being soft and strong at the same time, BAUX's new acoustic panels feels like pressed paper when you touch it but resembles a kind of terrazzo material when you look at it. Very cool.

We find it refreshing to find a product that is not just partially sustainable or recyclable but where the whole idea is genuinely based on nature. 

Way to go! 🌳

Nordgrönt – 

Their acoustic panels were a cool backdrop to this beautiful ceramic creature. We're not sure where it comes from but how stunning!?

Brilliant colour combinations at Swedese's installation. In between Scandi-grey and Stockholm beige, flowers and magic colour combos were a very welcome sight.

Färg & Blanche – a personal journey

Hosting a very intimate and personal exhibition, Emma and Fredrik of Färg and Blanche set up an exhibition in Emma's great great grandfather's old residence – the Baker's house, where 10 new objects and furniture inspired by the place and the family history were on display.

We left the Baker's house filled with admiration and inspiration... wow.

What's the definition of a plate? What separates it from that of a glass?
