I visited the Stockholm design week last Februari for the first time. An interesting fair worth a visit, especially if you also take a day to visit some retail concepts in the city.
Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair invited four interior designers to the Trend Exhibition 2015/16 to design spaces that could be found both in the home and in public places: a hotel lobby, lunch room, home office and bedroom.
I’d like to share my pictures of 2 of these trend houses with you.
Johanna Asshoff’s lunchroom is bright and uncluttered, with large, clean surfaces that create a clear space and leave room for the small details. In the design, she uses mainly natural materials, with green plants and luscious shapes embracing those entering the room.
“At a time when the pace of life around us is accelerating, when our lives are swirling and we are faced with a faster than ever pace of change, we need to find energy and repose. Lunch is the brief period of the day that gives us the chance to wind down and sit and talk with friends and colleagues. I want the lunchroom to breathe energy and light while being a place that inspires, empowers and allows time for contemplation”, says Johanna.
I really like what she did in this design. Use of material, colour and styling are great, but also the furniture design I like. The black and white angled bench in combination with the kitchen, very multifunctional. Also the low bench with geometric 80ies look: fits perfectly in the Memphis trend that is going on. Check our Pinterest board to see more about this trend.
Johanna Asshoff is trained as an interior designer and designer at Carl Malmsten’s School and has run the Stockholm-based Asshoff & Brogård design studio since 2008.
Next week a blog about the hotel lobby by Lene Ostenfeldt.
