    Design House Stockholm Wick Chair
    Design is only radical when it breaks with the norm for what a furniture typology should look like. Wick Chair is not, in the words of Design House Stockholm founder Anders Färdig, a ‘plastic tub.’ “I have a great weakness for avant-garde designs that form part of some type of tradition,” he explains while recalling the meeting at which designers Karl Malmvall and Jesper Ståhl presented their idea of what the Wick Chair might look like. “Karl and Jesper placed an old basket in front of me, explaining that this was what they had in mind,” Anders Färdig remarks. “I was pretty much all at sea!” The intention was never to produce a basket but the item that the designers presented explains the origins of the Wick Chair and the values that it conveys. The wood-chip basket is the sort that we recognized from Swedish artist Carl Larsson’s romantic watercolour of his daughter Brita which has become emblematic of what Christmas is supposed to look like in Sweden. At the time that it was painted it was a modern interpretation of tradition. That the Wick Chair is plaited in similar fashion to the wood-chip basket signals the design tradition from which it springs, but the plaiting can equally well be seen as an aspect of the designers’ elegant solution to a difficult practical problem. This pragmatic, no-nonsense approach, has been directly inherited from the country-craft tradition but it is also a solution that gives the Wick Chair its unique shape. Another challenge that Malmvall and Ståhl faced was how they were to plait the seat without covering everything with glue.

    Design House Stockholm Nest Easy Chair
    Designer Jesper Ståhl focuses on the details with his new family of upholstery furniture called ‘Nest’. The absence of cushions creates a focus on the sofa’s profile and its stitching. “I wanted to design a sofa with an inviting corner that one can creep up in, almost like a bird in a nest,” Jesper Ståhl explains. “But it was important that the sofa should look good from all directions and that is why it slopes and is rounded towards the bottom.” Thanks to its details, Nest has become a visually lighter item of furniture. With its strong pine frame, its upholstery that can sustain more than 100,000 on the Martindale rubbing test (where 35,000 Martindale is considered fully adequate for use in public spaces) and its generous height above the floor making it easy to vacuum clean, it is clearly well designed in the full sense of the word.
