One of the most exciting news of the last Stockholm Design Week, was the launch of the new Sinnerlig collection designed by Ilse Crawford for ikea. The new products will be available from August 2015. I can't wait! Definitely I'll buy the jug, it's amazing.
NakNak is a new design company based in Taiwan which makes its debut at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
Their idea is to create simple, functional and beautiful objects for different spaces by connecting international designers and an established, family-owned metal manufacturer in Taiwan. Inspired by the motion “knock knock,” NakNak means to knock on people’s mental doors and gently bring a new level of organization to their daily lives. “Knocking” is also the sound of a metal workshop, and represents the skilled touch of craftsmen.
As always, minimal design and right colors are the key of beautiful products.
Following the success of the “Meteorite” collection, Suprême Bon Ton released its second collection, titled "Göta". I've already mentioned the previous collection here. Ella Perdereau, the designer, was inspired by corals, shellfish, and the ebb and flow of the tide. The result is a collection of five scarves with delicious colors and textures. My favorite is Java.
Muuto is known for its Scandinavian design and for its products with simple design and attractive colors. Now they launch a series of additions to their collection. Among the news, my favorite is the Base table.
“I wanted the table to have its own character, but not be imposing. The design aims was to reduce the table to its archetypal form. The functional simplicity of base is supported by behind-the-scenes technology to create a slim, lightweight and strong table. At the same time, base is friendly and welcoming in the way it looks” said Mika Tolvanen, the designer.
Additionally, Muuto has expanded finishes and colors available for some products, such as the Fiber chair and the Stacked storage system.
In these days the Danish brand Menu launches their Spring Summer 2015 collection. As usual the colors and shapes of products are soft and minimal, where geometrical purity, uncomplicated naturalness and a sense of cool and calm are the key players, as says the brand’s literature.
