Today, I only do things that I love.
Last week we were at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2017 and checked out this year's news, in color, shape and materials. A highlight was the Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon, this year's Guest of Honour, who showed a diverse production with playful expressions in his pop-up pavilion at the entrance square.
A strong overall trend that we saw this year was a colourful, minimalistic and functional design. Many exhibitors showed news that had matte surfaces in bright colors, textile and details in brass with inspirations from the 1950s.
Open-plan offices and transparency in all its glory, but now it pops up furniture with a purpose to shield. Kinnarps has smart solutions for the open office, where furniture with high backs and square shapes creates a room within the room.
Not a sofa or armchair was without velvet coating. The fabric has been given a greater role in making the mundane more elegant. The pilates ball that otherwise are so sporty was one example of a product that by the use of fabric had completely transformed, with a purpose to be used in the office rather than at the gym!
It is becoming increasingly common with furniture that has embedded charging stations, built-in the furniture. Tables, sofas and armchairs have stylish detail solutions so that we can keep the energy up.
