showrooms and design activities around Stockholm. Some 40,000 visitors
and 750 exhibitors from the entire world meet each year at the
Stockholm Furniture Fair to do business and get inspiration. The
whole of Stockholm is involved and the city is teeming with design
activities, exhibitions and events.
Every year an important designer is comissioned
to create a central meeting place at the fair. this year is was
one of MOD's favorites, German designer Konstantin Grcic.
Grcic's lounge in Stockholm International Fairs' entrance hall
will offer visitors a moment of tranquillity in a warm and satisfying
setting. This usually cold and hard area has led him to adopt a
very special approach to staging, creating an artificial garden.
Using plants, textiles and a surprising mix of objects and furniture,
he will be creating an environment in which to rest, meet and listen.
"The sensation of living plants in this installation is a
new element for me to work with.The plants will create a living
oasis in the middle of the busy crowd," explains Grcic.
