Modenus at Stockholm Furniture Fair – Tim’s Top Picks Part One

Modenus Tim - Cold!With snow on his boots and a renewed love for Scandinavian design in his heart Modenus Tim has returned from the Stockholm Furniture Fair with endless pictures of his top picks from the show. This is part one – more to come.

Patrica Urquiola Hub chair for Andreu WorldAnd we start our tour of this Scandinavian Furniture show with a chair from a Spanish Designer for a Spanish manufacturer. Sorry, but there is some great Scandinavian design to come. In fact there was great design from across Europe and we never hesitate to show the work of Patrica Urquiola, on this occasion a chair from her Hub collection for Andreu World.  Apparently, the range is inspired by the designers infancy, and the bobbins that her grandmother used when she was making lace. For us, one of the important features of Urquiola’a work is the way in which it works both as beautiful objects and very practical furniture.

Louise Campbell designed LC Shutters lights for Louis PoulsonDesigned by Louise Campbell, LC Shutters are the latest in a range of lights from Denmark based but internationally available Louis Poulson, a firm which traces its history all the way back to the opening of Denmark’s second electricity generating power station in 1892. LC Shutters was launched in Stockholm and is the latest addition to a range of lights which include one or design classics you may well be familiar with.
chairs by Branca LisboaA couple of chairs from Branca Lisboa. How often do we find ourselves showing you interesting new design from Portugal?  Is there something in the water? Or maybe something in the Port. Modenus Tim confesses a weakness for Portuguese brandy. And Portuguese cakes. And… (enough of Tim’s weaknesses, it could be a very long list – Ed.) These chairs are made out of plywood and the company tells us that they are working to ‘reignite the bygone era when products were developed with patience, expertise, knowledge and integrity’.  All very laudable and certainly work deserving greater attention.
Camouflage Coat Hangers by Frost Design of DenmarkThese are Camouflage Coat Hangers by Frost Design of Denmark – a company whose’ web site includes the intriguing claim that ‘It takes 10 years to make an overnight success’ In fact that reflects the thoughtful approach that is evident throughout their work and original designs. There is also a playfulness here which was evident in many of the designs  in Stockholm. And more of those tomorrow.
