Stockholm Furniture Fair

Stockholm Furniture Fair
February 6 - 10, 2007

Stockholm Design Week is the world's largest meeting place for Nordic design with the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Northern Light Fair and an ever increasing number of high-profile events, 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.

Konstantin 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.
