Last week’s Stockholm Furniture and Lighting Fair at the Stockholmsmässan convention center was an incredible mix of new and old. Scandinavian makers and manufacturers both large and small brought a wide range of products from up-to-the-second design as well as the ever sought after classics from the modernist to mid-century periods. Although there were exhibitors from some 60 countries, the 'Local' brands did their best to stand out on the cutting edge.
Carl Hansen & Sons
The 'Mia' (Mi407) steel and leather chair in vapor blue was the hit of the Bruno Mathsson stand with supple leather and chromed steel frame that carry this classic well into the 21st century.
