The LINE lamp specially made for BEYOND COUTURE exhibition to create a textile cloud to give a feeling of privacy in the fair hall was a great success during last week Stockholm furniture fair.
A lot of people asked us about it and we are now searching for a producer to be able to develop this project this year.
Here some pictures of the installation / 25 LINE lamp (2 different size) at the fair:

ROCK CHAIR & BON-BON SEAT
Design by Fredrik Färg
Being rocked as a means of relaxation or comfort is a timeless, basic human experience. Though at some time in the early 20th century the design develop- ment of the rocking chair stopped. Rocking chairs frequently remain in an ornate, salon mode. Fredrik Färg’s Rock Chair is a rocking chair for our own time. It continues the traditional rocking chair’s comforting function but in a modern design.
“I developed the prototype during an exchange term in Australia where I was given an assignment to created a chair using only MDF board and a jig saw. It was a challenge to produce something personal and coherent using the simplest means.”
Rock Chair is a knock-down design sold in a flat pack. The five pieces are easy to fit together. When the chair has been assembled, the construction is its expressive feature. Nothing is hidden and one can see how the chair holds together. There is a toy-like charm to its simplicity. As a model, Rock Chair is like a drawing that one can sit on, as beautiful as it is cleverly functional.
Rocking chairs encourage one to sit for a long time. While working on the Rock Chair Fredrik also had the idea of producing soft cushions for it. The round cushions are a graphically elegant addition to the generous forms of the rocking chair and make it comfortable. Rock Seat comes in two variants, one
in leather and one in cotton canvas. The idea is that the cushions should last for a long time and gain a more beautiful patina with the passing of the years.
