The creations of young designers, the trends of the coming year and bright new products - we chose everything that deserves attention The Stockholm Design Week is not only a forum for professionals, but also an opportunity for consumers to find a lot of useful things for the house, just admire the beautiful exhibits and, most importantly , To learn to think in Scandinavian. If this year you did not get to the Swedish capital, do not worry: we studied photo reports, reports, opinions from social networks and comments of our compatriots and chose the most interesting events and installations for you. Trends Undoubtedly, the main eventThe Stockholm furniture and light fair is considered the Stockholm Design Week. This year, its main theme was everything marked "eco", as well as the relationship of man with nature. It is not hard to guess which Scandinavian - and not only - designs have been outlined this year: natural materials, natural colors, simple shapes. By the way, in the context of this exhibition "green" means not only friendly to nature, but also a confident coloristic trend: there really was a lot of green color and its shades on the Stockholm Design Week. Ecoproject Naturalist We decided to start with ourCompatriots - the project of Tatyana Kudryavtseva and Yaroslav Misonzhnikov "Naturalist", which united almost two dozen Russian designers and studios. Its main idea is unity with nature, its integration into urban planning and the opportunity to create a small garden right in the city. At the exhibition in Stockholm, the children presented a collection of objects and decor, lamps, pots, plant stands and printed fabrics. In addition to the founders, participated in the project: Alexander Kanygin Anya Druzhinin, Lesha Galkin Maksim Shcherbakov, Maksim Maksimov, Katerina Kopytina, Sveta Gerasimova Ekaterina Vagurina Tanya Klimenko, Anastasia Koshcheeva Katya Tolstoy, Olesya Ananiev, Ekaterina Semenova, Nikita Cherevkov and Elvira Lomovskaya. Author Katerina Kopytina Author Maxim Shcherbakov Author Maksim Shcherbakov Iittala X Issey MiyakeOne of the most significant collaborations of this exhibition is the cooperation of the Finnish company Iittala and the famous Japanese fashion house Issey Miyake. Together they created a collection of accessories for the house, which included glassware, polygonal dishes, pillows and napkins in the origami style. The point of contact was found exactly in what is inherent in both Finns and Japanese: the love of reserved colors and reasonable minimalism. Tom Dixon for Ege First of all the name of the BritishDesigner Tom Dixon is associated with brutal furniture and lights, but this time, together with the Danish brand Ege, he introduced the series. Creating this collection, Tom was inspired by the cityscapes of London: in prints, the smoke from the pipes, the cracked asphalt and the waters of the Thames are guessed. What's New in Wästberg The Swedish factory Wästberg inThis year presented several new products. Especially among them stands a laconic asymmetric luminaire Alto, which, thanks to its simplicity and harmony, won the Best Product award. Another noteworthy object is the "smart lamp" Busby with built-in USB port, developed in conjunction with the British brand Industrial Facility. Tables from Fish and Pink Interesting collectionPresented at the exhibition local - Stockholm - the brand Fish and Pink. The Freckles and Shine series consists of three tables, the countertops of which are made in terrazzo technique from cement, water and stone crumbs. The collection is experiencing the obvious influence of postmodernism of the 80's, and due to its bright colors and clear shapes it looks very fresh. Floor lamp Yuue Design All Scandinavian minimalismWas embodied in this floor lamp from the young Berlin brand Yuue Design. The floor lamp is equipped with a special mechanism that allows you to adjust the angle of inclination. Its designers basically did not hide, but showed in all its glory: first, in the design it looks better than any decorative element, and secondly, so the user will see how everything works. Miami Déco series An interesting collection of paints forThe name Miami Déco introduced another local brand Alcro. According to the designers, they were inspired by the Art Deco style with its clear geometric shapes, straight lines and contrast to create this series of colors. The range of colors includes 5 colors: Milkshake, South Beach, Florida, Daiquiri and Everglades. And their name and the name of the whole collection opaque hint at an unusual combination of motifs of popular style and an easy festive atmosphere of parties in Miami. Bath from Muubs Unusual brutal bath fromDanish brand Muubs simply could not go unnoticed. A single piece of stone, in which the depression for the bowl has been knocked out, perfectly meets the concept of this year: to be closer to nature. Despite the impressive appearance, if you believe the creators, inside the bath is very comfortable and gives a feeling of unity with nature and safety. Monica Förster for Rörstrand In the distant 1726The year when the Swedish company Rörstrand was founded, the blue color was at the peak of popularity. After almost 290 years, in 2014, the designer Monica Förster proposed to repeat the success and created for the brand a collection of elegant dishes in the blue and white range Inblue. This year, a series of dishes appeared at the exhibition. The opinion of the Exhibition is an integral part of lifeDesign critic, design historian and founder of the design lecture by Olga Kosyreva. So she did not miss the Design Week in Stockholm, and we asked Olga to tell her about her impressions. Olga Kosyreva, design historian: - The Stockholm exhibition of furniture and light is the largest event of its kind in the whole of Northern Europe, and this exhibition has become more and more influential in recent years. What confirms at least the fact that such a large furniture manufacturer, like Vitra, necessarily arranges in Stockholm some important premiere, shows a new collection. For three years I have also considered visiting the Stockholm exhibition a more important event than traveling to Cologne and Paris to Maison et Objet. In Stockholm, a completely different attitude. The style that is universally represented is modern modernism, eco-style and what we call Scandinavian. The exhibiting companies are also mainly local: Swedish, Danish, Finnish. The Danes are getting stronger and stronger every year, their companies just pull the palm of the championship from the Swedes. All the major Scandinavian brands are, of course, represented. My favorites are always: & Tradition, Swedese, Gubi, Hay, Muuto, Bolon, Eric Jorgensen, Fredericia. Also in Stockholm, you can find a lot of very interesting companies, often small, working on the principle of ateliers, which are not known or not widely known in the international arena. This year it was Finnish Nikari, Swedish Per Soderberg, David Design, Byarums Bruk, Danish Menu and Please wait to be seated. Olga also shared photos from the exhibition: # 2016sdw Of course, at exhibitions of this scaleAll with my own eyes and not see all the opinions, so at last we looked in the Instagram to see which moments of the exhibition attracted the attention of designers, bloggers and simply interested.
