While I'm still catching up with the press releases from Stockholm Design Week, more design news continues to pour in. Not that I'm complaining! I've picked out some favourites to share today.

At the end of last year I shared a sneak peek of Vipp's first furniture collection. The Danish brand has now officially unveiled the Vipp chair, which fuses the company's industrial heritage with the softer interior environments that Vipp has created in recent years for architectural projects such as the Vipp Hotel. Featuring a combination of powder-coated aluminium and soft fabrics, the chair comes with three different types of upholsteries - from textured fabrics to aniline leather - divided with a fine stitching pattern. 

“The Vipp451 chair links the past with the future. The combination of genuine materials and industrial refinement state a clear reference to our design tradition and line of existing products. By introducing tones, textures and upholsteries we open new doors, and take another step into the furniture category.” — Vipp Chief Designer, Morten Bo Jensen.  

Together with the chair, Vipp is breathing new life into their tables by adding a version with a smoked oak veneer tabletop, featuring a striking chevron pattern. Beautiful!

I just spotted this new design yesterday (thanks to Sundling Kickén) and I love it. The new Arc magazine rack is designed by Sanna Lindström for Karl Andersson & Söner and features a unique design that combines straight lines with rounded forms. The wooden disc-shaped front keep printed matter securely in place and easy to access, making it ideal for displaying magazines, brochures or any other paper good you'd like to showcase! Available in two sizes, different colours as well as vertical option, take a look here.

Award-winning Swedish design company Fogia have released some beautiful new products for 2019. Two of my favourites include Utility, a versatile stool designed by Norm and the Barba armchair designed by Andreas Engesvik. Available in two sizes, Utility features an architectural frame and legs capped by a soft cushion. The stool creates a beautiful sense of harmony in the living room above, due to its unique proportions which sees a move away from what could be considered a ’standard’ height for a foot stool, stool or pouf. Named after the French word for candy floss and influenced by the classic cartoon characters, the Barba armchair pairs beautifully with the Barba sofa, but also looks stunning on its own. Designed by Andreas Engesvik, the Barba armchair is compact but has a strong aesthetic expression, with proportions that gently hug and conform to the body. Yet another rounded, textural armchair to add to the wish list!

Danish design studio Kristina Dam has launched Setomono, a minimalist new tableware series made from fine stoneware inspired by traditional Japanese pottery. The Setomono tableware sets include a bowl, a container/pot and a side plate which doubles as a lid for the container. Available in three different sizes, the Setomono Cups can be bought separately or in a stackable three piece set. All Setomono designs are glazed and burned twice for highest strength and maximum durability making the items strong and perfect for everyday use. Complimenting the range is the new Japanese Wood Boards, made from oak planks. These pieces would definitely elevate the morning breakfast and coffee routine don't you think?

This elegant home belongs to Joachim Engell-Hansen, brand and design director of Menu. Over the last few years Joachim has, with the assistance of multidisciplinary design studio Norm, successfully rebranded the company which was started by his grandfather in 1979. An impressive achievement at just 26! Now collaborating with designers from around the world, Menu is known for creating timeless pieces of furniture, lighting and accessories. Joachim's home is a beautiful reflection of this pared back, warm Scandinavian aesthetic. See more over at Residence magazine.

It's exciting to learn of design icons being reproduced, and this is a favourite! Designed by Jan Ekselius in 1970, the Etcetera Chair represents the distinctive design of the 70s and continues to be a sought after item at the most respectable auction design houses. In a unique collaboration between Artilleriet and Ekselius, Etcetera is now being produced in a range of beautiful colour ways... although it's probably not surprising that the Sand Beige shown here is my favourite! The production is being carried out by craftsmen J.O. Carlsson and Forsbergs in Småland with the highest attention to quality, detail and sustainability - a true testimony of craftsmanship, love for design and the highest level of skilled manufacturing.
