The collaboration between the Swedish manufacturer Zero and the Stockholm based designer Fredrik Mattson has been going on for several years now. At this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair the successful team presented ‘Wood’ (this product name seems to be popular this year), a new series of interior lighting. The base of each model is a cylindric veneered body which is connected to an accordant reflector – made from matt opal glass for the pendant lights and painted aluminum or copper for the table lamp.

With 77 years the Swedish designer Åke Axelsson not even thinks of resigning from work. At this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair he proudly presented ‘Wood’, his latest piece for the Swedish manufacturer Gärsnäs. The components of this elegant lightweight chair are made with a traditional steaming technique that uses a minimal amount of wood. Wood is packed disassembled in a recyclable cartonboard in order to reduce transport volume.

During this year’s Stocholm Furniture Fair the Swedish designers of Akka presented this foldable table at the Greenhouse, the forum for young designers. In all different positions, even folded, the cantilvered table stands out for its charming appearance. This might be due to the slightly bent skids, which give the table a figurative character.
