With this year’s new pieces we are presenting four examples of how talented designers create furniture that brings to mind the perfection of nature: a forest, a rolling landscape, a beautiful resting place and last, but not least; silence.
Deep Forest design Nina Jobs
An effective sound absorber that is easy to place and has a filling made from recycled textiles. The discreet design is a conscious interpretation of the saying that you can’t see the wood for the trees – it is meant to blend into the background of the room rather than being the headline act.
“The repeat forest motif has been designed to reflect Skandiform’s aura and create a functional background in public spaces.” / Nina Jobs
Isa design Louise Hederström
Isa is generously-sized piece of seating furniture that brings to mind a rolling landscape with variations in both height and shape. It’s a meeting place to sit down and take a break on.
“The name Isa comes from isarithm, the curved contour lines used on topographical maps to indicate varying heights. I often draw inspiration from nature – it’s the ultimate combination of beauty and function.” / Louise Hederström
Phaze design by Karim Rashid
An armchair that embraces you, providing generous personal space. Several linked together create a beautiful, undulating shape.
“I was thinking of a design that embraces my philosophy of sensual minimalism and repetition. The Phaze armchair was the result!” / Karim Rashid
deciBel design by Ruud Ekstrand
Wood combined with sound-absorbent material results in a comfortable chair that contributes to an equally comfortable environment with no unnecessarily distracting noise.
“The greatest possible silence… sometimes an unusually silent classic is precisely what you need.” / Ruud Ekstrand
