With a degree in product design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Jonas Edvard lives and works in Copenhagen. His quest for organic design gives life to objects situated between design and ecology, made from living or innovative materials. The biodegradable MYX lamp grows edible mushrooms. The chair and lamps in the Terroir collection are made from a mixture of paper and seaweed recovered on Danish shores. His designs remain close to the natural colors specific to their materials. Some have been included in the permanent collections of the Danish Design Museum.

Born in 1983 in Finland, Katriina Nuutinen is already a big name in the country, with a particular passion for glass and ceramics. Combined with wood, metal, leather and fabric, her favorite materials give rise to ethereal light fixtures, sensual home accessories, and sophisticated furniture pieces. The Oma Floor lamp is one of the TOP 25 home accessories selected by the magazine Monocle. The Vakka leather nesting boxes are already being distributed by Ligne Roset.

Swedish designer Fredrik Färg and French designer Emma Marga Blanche founded their studio in Stockholm in 2010. Nurtured by the former’s penchant for fashion and the latter’s artistic vein, FÄRG &BLANCHE experiment with innovative combinations of materials and open new horizons for a couture spirit. Halfway between an artisan workshop and a design studio, the duo combines the exclusivity of handmade goods with the prerequisites of industrial manufacturing. Their furniture is covered in leather – the Succession stool – or fabric – the F.A.B. line – and combines wood and tailoring as in the Wood Tailoring collection. The pair’s experimental DNA has won over Swedish brands such as Gärsnäs, Zero and Design House Stockholm. Their RE-cover chairs have been added to the collections of the National Museum in Stockholm.

Troels Flensted – Denmark

After studying design in Denmark, the young Scandinavian talent continued his training at Central Saint Martins in London, from which he graduated in 2014. He returned to his homeland to found his studio. He explores the reactions of materials and colors produced during the manufacturing process. In this melting pot of inspiration and creation, he freezes singular effects and preserves their accidents. The materials obtained are shown on large decorative surfaces. Such as the Poured collection of side tables, made from a mixture of acrylic powder, water based resin and pigments for a result similar to travertine.

Somewhere between art and design, Jørgen Platou Willumsen and Stian Korntved Ruud’s abstract objects show like works of art. Among their sources of inspiration: nature and craftsmanship. The Norwegian duo collects wood in the heart of the forests to dry it and work with it with great attentiveness. They take the same approach with abandoned materials, which they recover to give them new life, such as copper, exploring its oxidation. From this close relationship with materials emerge minimalist creations somewhere between mobiles and sculptures. They have been exhibited in Milan, London, Berlin, Vienna, New York and Paris.

“I didn’t want this restaurant to feel formal. I wanted it to be an environment in which you can unwind and enjoy” he said. The new scheme incorporates midcentury-style pieces with a contemporary twist. Dining chairs, which are meant to recall the 1950s, feature red ruched-leather upholstery. Cozy ribbed banquettes alternate between tan and green leather with coordinating tweed detailing.

Barcelona, Cassina, Fritz Hansen, Magis, Swarovski, Bisazza and Lladró.

For the exhibition’s Holon showing, Hayon has made an exclusive addition to the showcase in the form of a large scale, one-of-a-kind wall hanging mirror. Referencing giant primitive masks, the mirror will be constructed of quartz stone marquetry provided by solid-surface material manufacturer Caesarstone, who have donated the piece to the museum’s permanent collection.

‘I see masks as a storyteller, or a mirror if you will, of history,’ explains Hayon. ‘Every civilization, from the ancient peoples of the Middle East to the Aztecs in the Americas, has utilised masks, and each mask tells a story. I became keen to create a mask representing characters from my own cosmos, one which combines fantasy, a certain playfulness, together with craft and quality. I decided to use mirror together with stone to create different textures and feelings, as if the mask were an old mosaic. Some parts have stone, while other parts show a reflection onto ourselves.’

The most extraordinary piece in this mise en scène is a gigantic crystal globe made from a million Swarovski crystals, which took about an year to construct. The resultant glimmering sphere is a showstopper that transforms the concert into an art disco.

This project was the first to be launched in collaboration with David Gill Gallery, where this furniture piece is on display.

Made of bronze, steel and glass bookshelves, this cabinet contain elements that reference the architecture of the greek classical age. Besides, the name of the collection – Ionic – is one of the three orfers of Classical Architecture, along with Doric and Corinthian.

david-chipperfield-presents-new-cabinet-inspired-by-ancient-greek-architecture  (2)  New Cabinet Designed by David Chipperfield david chipperfield presents new cabinet inspired by ancient greek architecture 2

According to David Chipperfield, this exhibitions was a chance to create furniture that was free from all the usual commercial restrictions dictated by the marketplace.david-chipperfield-presents-new-cabinet-inspired-by-ancient-greek-architecture  (3)  New Cabinet Designed by David Chipperfield david chipperfield presents new cabinet inspired by ancient greek architecture 3

The blackened steel shelves of the cabinets and bookcases rest on a bronze framework that uses slender supporting poles. The cylindrical rods are fluted to represent the Ionic columns, and are capped with flat sections on either end so they can be fixed to the horizontal sections of the frame.

“With David Gill, we were able to operate outside the conventional commercial furniture system – it was strange and yet very interesting,” said David. “I still wanted to make a utilitarian object but didn’t see utility as its primary concern – or the economy of means.”
