It was the first time I visited the Stockholm Furniture fair during our Blogger tour in Stockholm and really enjoyed the atmosphere. I always love to see how the various brands show their new collection and I was especially happy to see the stand of Danish brand by lassen. I am a huge fan of their design. I think it is the iconic kubus form that I am attracted to most, as I have always loved square shapes more then any other.
By lassen is a family business whose simple mission is to carry the Lassen legacy forward and I loved meeting the great grand daughter of Mogens Lassen who kindly showed me around in their stand. I also choose their 'Twin' table as my favorite item from the Furniture fair |more about that at the end of this post| because I love its versatility and shape, it will be available from April 2014.
The same shape and color pattern is used in the stand - white - wood - grey and copper. The art prints are from Kristina Dam, I wrote about her work last month here: Kristina Dam studio | Graphic objects
Due the short time we had, we mainly focused on Hall A and the Greenhouse area where our blogger team collected favorite items and booths for the Furniture & Light Fair blog. We thought Menu, String and by Lassen really stood out.
Gerard also wrote a review on the Greenhouse area, the area for young designers where we spend a lot of time talking to many of them | I will link it here as soon as it's on the Furniture & Light Fair blog | meanwhile check it here on the Mr. Walnutgrey blog. I think we all loved the secretaire by Karen Toft in this area and I loved the work of Hanna Dalrot who showed here graduation project for Product design at Beckmans College of design.

We only had a few hours to walk around and as always... it's a matter of too little time and to much to see at fairs like this. We had a little break at Maze and they kindly invited us to have lunch with them. It was also great to talk with some people I met in Paris and Milano before, and of course, the most important! to have a look at the brands presenting their new collections and meeting new, young and talented designers.
Thanks to UBER for driving us to the fair and around in Stockholm
