Stockholm studenter 2012

11 designspirer stiller ut møbler på verdens største, nordiske møbelmesse

Årets 11 designstudenter fra kunsthøgskolen søker lykken på den internasjonale møbelmessen i Stockholm 7.-11.februar 2012 med spennende møbler som et resultat av et omfattende interiørprosjekt.

Studentene har tatt utgangspunkt i to bygg i Sandviken, med ærverdige Reperbanen som nærmeste nabo. De fikk i oppgave å tilføre lokalmiljøet og Bergens befolkning noe nytt, samt være et reisemål i seg selv.

Overordnet tema er "matopplevelser".

Inspirasjon fra egne reiser og opplevelser har satt sitt preg på flere produkter, alt i fra helgeturer til nasjonalromantiske Sirdal i Vest-Agder, til lengre opphold i tradisjonsrike Kitakyushu i Japan. Møblene er tydelig inspirert av vårt nordiske klima, noe som vises i fargepaletten og i bruken av lyse tresorter. Studentene verdsetter varige og solide materialer og har et rent og nøkternt formspråk. Arbeidene som
stilles ut i Stockholm er fullskala prototyper og er laget av studentene, hovedsaklig på kunsthøgskolens verksteder.

Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair er verdens største møteplass for nordisk design. Her får studenter og nyetablerte designere en unik mulighet til knytte kontakter blant produsenter og til å vise seg fram for presse og andre innenfor bransjen. Messen har i dag posisjonert seg som en av de viktigste messene i verden.

Dette er niende året på rad at studenter på bachelorstudiet i design med fordypning i møbel- og romdesign/interiørarkitketur fra kunsthøgskolen viser fram hvert sitt møbel på møbelmessen i Stockholm.

Stockholm2012-Lars-Beller-Fjetland.jpg

LARS BELLER FJETLAND: Nuki
"Nuki" is a robust coffee table that sits right at the crossroads between Japanese tradition and a humble, Nordic appreciation for the forests' finest materials. The table is designed around the principles of Torii - the gate that marks the transition from the profane to the sacred in Japanese Shinto-temples - gathering inspiration from its wood- and stone-based construction. A solid layer of marble rests firmly on a strong foundation of Nordic elm to complete the seamless marriage between Japanese and Nordic aesthetics.

Materials: elm & carrara marble

CATHRINE BÆKKEN: Booi
The lamp "Booi" draws inspiration from the mooring buoys you find along the Norwegian coasts. With the handle you bring Booi with you wherever light is needed. Use it as a single lamp, place it together in clusters, as a pendant or lying on the floor. Place it where you like to add a simple and elegant element with a pure Nordic light.

Materials: birch & sandblasted glass

SILJE NESDAL: Futo
With folds reminding of the Japanese futon, wrapped in Norwegian wool, "Futo" balances on a frame of solid, light birch, joined together with only two anchor points. Nordic and Japanese aesthetics and tradition set the inspiration to make this lounge chair all in natural and local materials.

Materials: birch, wool fabric and wool felt

Stockholm2012-Trine-Lise-Giske.jpg

TRINE-LISE GISKE: Nor
"Nor" is the result of a weekend getaway to Sirdal in Vest-Agder. The table is an echo of the Norwegian mountain landscape with its sharp edges and layers, made of solid ash wood. "Nor" is suitable for private homes, but can just as easily be used in small public spaces.

Stockholm2012-Elisabeth-Våpenstad-Holm.jpg

ELISABETH VÅPENSTAD HOLM: Tinde

Material: maple

Stockholm2012-Martin-Ramstad-Rygner.jpg

MARTIN RYGNER: VI-TO
"VI-TO" is the result of a study on how two different materials and techniques meet. The back half of the chair is made of solid ash wood, and the front is a one piece steel pipe structure that surrounds the frame of the chair. "VI-TO" is suitable for small public spaces such as cafes, as well as private homes.

Materials: ash & steel

Stockholm2012-Natasha-Bendiksen-Crona.jpg

Material: maple wood

Stockholm2012-Thomas-Wroldsen.jpg

Thomas Wroldsen: Sera
"Sera" is a generous stool designed to fill a gap in today's marked. It's wider than a regular stool, which allows more than one person to share the seat. Different color combinations will make any hall or nightclub sparkle. The seat can be removed to make it easier to change or re-upholster the seat.

The comfortable seat is made out of solid foam and upholstered in the finest wool fabrics Norway has to offer. The bottom part is made from polished steel with a solid wooden base. These materials can also be changed depending on the environment. "Sera" is developed for the public market, but can also be used for the home market.
