The Furniture & Light Fair, Stockholm 2018

On Saturday I visited the Furniture & Light Fair, Stockholm 2018. I visit this fair every year. It is interesting. There are beautiful and innovative furnitures and lights shown. It is my favourite fair.

The fair is big though. They fill all the three halls of the Stockholm Fair ground. By the time you get to Hall C, you are exhausted and don’t really see what you are looking at… One thing I appreciate with this particular fair is that they do not sell anything except to resellers.

The entrance exhibition by Paola Navone was wild and craxy. I kind of liked the hug flowerlamps though…

Chargeable by usb lamp. This small lamp you can carry with you. You charge it by usb-cable. It lasts for about 20 hours. In the shops it costs SERK 1800. On the fair you could get it for SEK1000. The attachable fixture that hangs over the side of the chair is an add-on. I didnät ask for the price of that.

As for the furnitures and lights… there are beautiful things and there are wild things. Less office furniture this year than previous years. As for trends? I see lots of black details. There is still natural materials in wood and carpets in natures own beige colors… Less pink. Less pastels. The lamps and lightings are interesting and with the LED technique I guess the possibilities to create real interesting lightings is much larger than the lamps from former days. Lots of small stools. Lots of small chargeable lamps that you can carry with you. Lots of thing metal legs on small side-tables.

Someone has looked too close on the similar stool from Ikea I would say… Photo: ©nini.tjader.2018

Others may have reported from the fair with more details like the names of the producers and such. I intentionally don’t. I am more interested in trends and looks than the producers. But here are some of my impressions that I caught on picture.
