Has began today, February 5th Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, the 5 days meeting place for Scandinavian furniture and lighting design, for home, office and public environments.
Rich in contents and events. For the tenth year running, a celebrated international designer is creating a lounge in the entrance. This year Oki Sato, Chief Designer and founder of Nendo, has produced an installation that creates the illusion of snow-capped mountain peaks soaring into the sky.
“We’ve laser cut more than 100 plastic foam sheets and transformed them into a landscape that expresses how the design process begins and evolves, from a simple idea to a finished expression. This is a method that illustrates our design philosophy,” explains Oki Sato. “It’s also been very important to us to minimize the installation’s environmental impact, so we’ve finished all materials on site to be able to transport the props as compactly as possible.After the fair, it will be possible to recycle the installation as well,” he continues.
Hello! Show – Anatomy of Communication is more than just an installation; it’s a forum for an in-depth and far-ranging discussion about design: Designology – The art of communicating design; Furniture in and out of the box – Communicating design values; Personalizing the business – The Designer as USP; The world’s most wonderful reception – The office as a means of communication; How should we be sitting, how should we be working? Communication technology and working environment; Architecture – Where did the debate go? To draw or not to draw?
