'The Ensemble' by Helena Svensson, Karin Widmark and Josefin Hellström Olsson
The three individual Swedish designers Helena Svensson, Karin Widmark and Josefin Hellström Olsson presented ‘The Ensemble’ at the Greenhouse during this year’s Stokholm Furniture Fair.

The Canadian manufacturer molo, especially known for its sophisticated paper furniture and room deviders, recently unveiled a new floor lamp. ‘Cappello’ is lit by LED. The lampshade, a paper “cap” – or cappello in Italian – is set upon a cylinder of soft white Carrara marble.
