Here are some more details from Stockholm Furniture Fair:


Cultural diversity at the Design Bar

Stockholm Furniture Fair and Northern Light Fair have commissioned industrial designer and interior architect Katrin Greiling to design 2011's Design Bar and VIP Lounge. She is inviting visitors on a journey with references to a multitude of cultures.

"The Design Bar and VIP Lounge for 2011 will not follow any linear narrative; they will instead be a hybrid that is impossible to define.

The exhibition space, which covers 320 m², contains references to different cultures influenced by all my global experiences and impressions.

From a narrative perspective I am creating an accessible landscape that calls to mind the genuine European, the old town, but which also conjures up an artistic idiom characterised by cultural diversity that harks back to my time in the Middle East," explains Katrin.

Her design draws on different visual styles that encourage the visitor to become a part of the interior and be enticed into a game of perception. The interior deals with the private and the public in a way that calls into question our concept of seclusion and how we react to space and status. Cardboard and plywood are recurring materials that are combined with a poetic projection of the actual content.

The purpose of the Design Bar, which is a combined exhibition and bar, is to highlight a Swedish designer or group. On previous occasions the bar has been designed by architectural practice Marge, design group Front, design duo BrobergRidderstråle, the duo Save our Souls, the design collective Camp Site, and most recently Jonas Wagell.

    When I first saw these images I wasn't sure, for example the practical side of me didn't really understand the sun loungers, however after reflection and also seeing the room populated by people and used, I have decided I really like them! I love the natural wood and mix of cardboard, really nice.
