The New Gärsnäs Design at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018

At this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair, Gärsnäs chooses to highlight materials and craftsmanship. New designs include furniture by Färg & Blanche, Nina Jobs and David Ericsson, with a range of influences coming from the Paris fashion world to Parisian cafés. Also on display is a new addition to last year’s acclaimed Dandy easy chair, and the award-winning Bleck sofa.

 

Extrem Seams by Färg & Blanche

Mr N continues Färg & Blanche’s adventures at the cutting edge between tailoring and carpentry. The moulded wooden shell and inner upholstery are joined without pre- drilled holes. The result is a swivel chair with a tactile feel that gives a relaxed and creative atmosphere to all kinds of meeting room.

Nina Jobs´New Sofa Group Inspired by Classic Chanel

Colette is available as an easy chair, sofa or modules and draws inspiration from the classic Chanel suit. A strict aesthetic of straight lines is adorned with edging along the sides. Everything from the choice of materials to the shape itself is made from the point of view of sustainability, where even the covers are removable to enable laundering or variety.

Stackable Café Chair with Scandinavian Qualities

David Ericsson’s new design, Petite, is a contemporary Scandinavian counterpart to the classical café chairs found in European cafés. With its simplified design, he has created a neat chair in beech for both home and cafés, that is light to lift and stackable, and has well thought-out details including the tapered seat and crafted joints.

The Steve McQueen of Easy Chairs Gets a Footstool

Last year, Pierre Sindre launched his Dandy easy chair: a generous design with a rattan back, inspired by the 60s and Steve McQueen. Now there is an equally elegant footstool, whose lines reflect the easy chair’s style, while the rattan creates an elevation above the oval frame.

 

A Stand with Craftsmanship

This year’s stand is designed by TAF Arkitektkontor, with a focus on craftsmanship and sustainability. The back of the stand shows a timber wall frame giving a sense of looking through a wall, to highlight the materials and construction. The walls and floors are made of wood that is reusable or recyclable, and the table frame was recovered from last year’s stand. As a partition between the furniture, TAF has evolved the concept behind Bleck – last year’s winner of four major design awards including Sköna Hem’s Furniture of the Year Award, the Bruno Mathsson Prize, Designer of the Year by Form Magazine and an award from Elle Decoration – and used the frame-like construction to create bookcases. You will also find Bleck on display at the stand.

Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair runs from 6–10 February.
The Gärsnäs stand is located at A11:20.
