Stockholm Furniture and Lighting Fair 2018 – Day Two


Last week we travelled to Stockholm to visit the Furniture and Lighting Fair 2018 held at Stockholmsmässan. The event was a great chance for us to catch up with the brands we work with and see all the latest designs. Below is a photo diary of day two of our trip.


Artemide


On day two we headed straight to the fair and to visit the wonderful Artemide stand.

Marset


New Marset Online


Follow Me Plus


Marset


Three years ago Inma Bermúdez designed the original Follow Me and now Marset have launched a new version in a larger size and a greater light output; Follow Me Plus.


The Follow Me Plus is a beautiful portable lamp which creates a great atmosphere and can work as a table, desk or even floor light. 


The design features an oak handle which invites you to carry it with you.


A three-position dimmer regulates the light intensity, allowing for a continuous output of between 5 to 20 hours, and the micro USB charging cable makes charging your FollowMe Plus quick and easy.

Bicoca


Marset


The brand new Bicoca table is designed by Christophe Mathieu. This new colourful, lightweight portable lamp projects an intimate light that adds warmth to all your personal spaces.


Made of polycarbonate, Bicoca begins with an overlay of basic geometric figures, with a tiltable shade to direct the light.


There also three separate accessories which increase the versatility of the lamp. A powerful magnet can be affixed to the bottom of the fixture, allowing you to attach it to metal surfaces -even vertical walls- defying gravity. An armchair accessory drapes over armrests, sofa backs, or headboards, so you can bring your Bicoca to all your personal reading spaces. You can also get a metallic disc accessory which hides discreetly beneath a tablecloth, securing your Bicoca to your table.


The design is available in a wide range of shade and has one perfect for any space.

Djembé


Marset


Like the echo of a drum, the Djembé collection is designed for repetition, creating musical compositions of light on the ceiling. The new collection is designed by Joan Gaspar who wanted to design a fixture with a vastly different interior to exterior. 


The bell-shaped exterior recalls the texture of a stone while the interior is a smooth white space which perfectly reflects the light.


Djembé is available in a number sizes and bright colours that can be used individually or combined to create a brilliant statement piece. A separate accessory allows for the installation of sound-proofing panels.

Piola


Marset


Designed by Christophe Mathieu the Piola collection represents the search for a balance between the diffusion of light and the creation of shadows.


The central metal column holds more than 5 metres of spiralling, laminated banding which protects the light creating a comforting feel.


Several different types of light coexist; direct downward light, indirect reflected light, and a light that sneaks between the edges of the spiral, illuminating the fixture itself with a warm, homey glow.


The Piola is available in four colours, with the structure and screen always in the same colour.

Pu-erh


Marset


The new Pu-erh pendant collection uses ceramics as to create a delicate, fabric-like effect. The name Pu-erh is inspired from a variety of fermented tea produced in the Yunnan province, china, which is named after the town of Pu'er.


Designer and ceramist Xavier Mañosa has created a texture, evoking pleated silk, which is then applied to a conical shade, casting a wide and beautiful ray of illumination.


The Pu-reh began with a rough hand drawn sketch which then was applied directly to the ceramic mould creating a lamp with irregular variations and a raw, natural effect. The craftsman barely intervenes, letting the lamp take shape naturally within the mould.


This new collection of suspension lamps is available in three sizes—21, 32, and 42cm—and available in black, white, blue, burgundy and pink.

Muuto


New in from Muuto


We’ve recently added some of Muuto’s latest designs online and below we have all you need to know about the latest must haves.


Tip Table


Muuto


The Tip table is created from the idea of stripping a design down to its essentials. The design is by Jens Fager, one of Sweden’s most interesting young designers. Fager graduated from Stockholm’s KonstfackUniversity and has made his mark on the international design scene with exhibitions in London, Milan and Stockholm. The table light is an example of a simple, functional design with careful attention to detail offering a direct as well as ambient light.
The power coated aluminium frame is available in a range of colours and has a dimmer function enabling you to effortlessly control the light intensity. 


“TIP is a purist yet playful lamp that features a characteristic architectural silhouette. During the design process, I focused on polishing every single detail while emphasising the functional aspect of the lamp: I wanted to reduce the design to the very essence of its purpose. The moulded aluminium frame lends the Tip Lamp a clean, precise look, underscoring its subtle aesthetic.” Jens Fager.

Airy Table


Muuto


The new Airy table collection is a design by one of Scandinavia’s leading designers, Cecilie Manz. Airy consist of a polished plywood table top and a metal frame which is soldered and welded to create a light and skinny silhouette. The collection is available in four different sizes, shapes and colours; grey, black, Oregon pine or off white.


“The idea behind AIRY was to create a coffee table that did not scream but still was not afraid to speak. The result is a table series that masters the fine balance between being light and airy, and at the same time having plenty of personality and individuality. Due to this combination AIRY gets a multi-functionality that makes the side tables suitable for every kind of interior.” Cecilie Manz.

Loft Chair


Muuto


The loft chair by designer Thomas Bentzen is inspired by life’s everyday requirements.  The chairs design is simple and honest with contrasting materials. Loft’s solid, powder coated steel frame is offset with the warmth of plywood and is a nostalgic nod to industrial design. The visible screws further enhance the engineered feel and the materials provide a functional yet sophisticated chair fitting for any setting.


“The steel frame features simple joints and welds, lending a precise and solid appearance to the chair. The curved seat and backrest contrast this, making the Loft Chair very human and comfortable.” Thomas Bentzen

Foscarini


New finishes to the Foscarini collections


Tuareg


Foscarini


The existing Tuareg floor collection designed in 2013 now includes a matt white finish. Based on the architecture of archaic cultures, the Tuareg is a lamp with a powerful image like a work of land art in an interior landscape.


The structure is composed of aluminium tubing which creates a vivid and dynamic three dimensional form. The new matt white finish joins the original matt orange and glossy black.

Le Soleil


Foscarini


A sphere composed of irregular bands, the Le Soleil pendant is large in size but visually light. When on, thanks to the bands, the light flows outward like sunbeams glimpsing through a cloud. 


The Le soleil is now available with an integrated LED which creates a decorative and illuminating effect at the same time as a beam of light being projected downwards.


The Le Soleil is now available in an original copper and bronze finish that brings a new personality, enhancing the warm, natural glow of the lamp.

Spokes


Foscarini


The Spokes lamp is based on an observation of the spokes of a bicycle wheel, generating an object of great iconic force. Today the Spokes range now includes metallised finishes making the spokes seem even more slender and precious. The collection is now available in an elegant graphite and a warm copper tone which transform the presence of Spokes and opens up a world of decor possibilities.

Louis Poulsen


New A/W Collection from Louis Poulsen


As we approach Autumn/Winter we’re giving you a sneak peak at Louis Poulsen latest releases. The product launch includes 1 brand new design and additional finishes to 3 of Louis Poulsen most popular classics. The releases will be online and available to purchase from September 2017.


Yuh


Louis Poulsen


Yuh is a brand new collection designed by GamFratesi which includes a floor, table and wall version. Yuh is the phonetic form of ‘you’; the letters represents the sound made by the voice to say “you”. 


The shade’s design is light and flexible, being able to be raised, lowered or tilted. One of the essential features of the lamp is for it to be personal, a lamp created just around you. The lamp has a built in LED which provides a high quality of light and a button placed on the upper tube on the table and floor and on the bracket for the wall which acts as a switch and dimmer. Available in black or white.


Doo-Wop


Louis Poulsen


The Doo-wop pendant was originally introduced in 1952 and was a design from close cooperation between the Danish navy buildings department and Louis Poulsen. The pendant was taken out of the range in 1982 then later reintroduced in 2012 in new colours and a brass version.  Now Louis Poulsen is rereleasing the design with two new polished metal variants; Copper and Stainless Steel. The pendant primarily provides a directed downward soft light while the outer main shade provides light up and down while at the same time spreading a soft diffused glow. By the end of the year the blue, green and red finishes will be discontinued. The family will then consist of dark grey, white, brass, copper and steel.


VL38 Black/Brass


Louis Poulsen


The VL38 table was originally designed in the late 1930’s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. In fall 2016 the VL38 was relaunched in white/brass. Now in 2017 Louis Poulsen had released the black edition which has a stronger outline than the original whilst maintaining the loved retro look and the soft, curvy expression of the original design. The design emits a downward directed light with the shade adjustable to optimise the light distribution. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light.


The finial release will be unveiled at the beginning of September so keep an eye on our blog for the latest news!

David Village Lighting


During our visit to the Stockholm Furniture and Lighting Fair we got the chance to see some of the latest designs from the brands that we work with.


Light Years


Released late last year the Suspence collection from Light Years is already a popular design of theirs. The inspiration for the design by GamFratesi's was translating a movement into a physical shape. The pendants design is perceived to be uninterrupted with an infinity diffuser at the bottom which prevents glare and creates an elegant diffused light.


Released at the same time was the Suspence Nomad which is designed to be placed on a horizontal surface for example a floor or staircase. Just like a nomad it can be moved from place to place with ease by lifting the silicone handle at the top.


Light Years


Orsjo


Konkret is a brand new pendant by Orjso which caught everyone attention at the fair. The series puts Orsjo’s constituent material to the test. Despite the pendants name suggesting a much harder material it is made from ash veneer with a black ombre tint and has fine details such its brass studs which attached the leather straps.


“I wanted to challenge the way we use wood as a material for lights and show how the texture of the material can be changed through its design and how this also creates a natural and warm light,” says designer Jonas Edvard.


Orsjo


Louis Poulsen


This year Louis Poulsen has released one new design and has updated 2 of it most popular collections. At their stand in Stockholm they had all three of the latest releases. Shown below are a few designs from the updated PH collection and the new Above pendant. Keep your eyes peeled as we will soon be revealing the second collection to be updated by Louis Poulsen.


Louis Poulsen


Foscarini


Late last year Foscarini along with the Aplomb Large released the Spokes 2 Large pendant and the New Buds collection. The three designs have already proved popular with their simple and modern design. All three work well to be placed either in the home or in a commercial area.


Foscarini


Secto


Finnish based lighting company Secto made a simple yet stunning display. The company specialises in hand-made wooden design lighting. Their stand showed two new designs, the new Teelo table and a yet unnamed wall light. The Teelo table has a simple yet stylish design which incorporates a sculptural tone and secto’s signature clean lines.


The new wall was designed in response to the clear demand for a light which is not suspended but fixed. The design brings a new character to ceiling and wall fixtures where wood is not a material commonly used.
