Stockholm Design Week 09: Swedish designers Folkform have designed a collection of furniture called Hidden Layers, launched at their studio and showroom in Stockholm, Sweden, this week.
The range comprises cabinets that have been decorated with black and white patterns, intended to look worn.
Here's some text from Folkform:
PREMIÈRE FOR WORN-OUT BEAUTIES
Could wear and tear on furniture be decorative? No doubt, in Folkforms interpretation. During the Stockholm Design Week you can see their latest collection Hidden Layers at their Stockholm Studio and showroom (by appointment, contact Folkform).
The collection Hidden Layers is a number of cabinets, where experiments were carried out using different surfaces and materials, to re-create cracks and natural wear.
Folkform design studio in Stockholm, Sweden is owned and run by industrial designers Anna Holmquist and Chandra Ahlsell. Anna and Chandra, both of whom gained an MA at Konstfack, Stockholm, in 2005, work on own independent collections, as well as customer assignments in the borderland between art and design. They experiments with materials, both traditional and new, exploring the scope for using them in new ways and new application areas.
