Print and Pattern
Swedish design duo Whynot really stood out for me in the young designers hall at Stockholm Furniture Fair for their alternatve, slightly gothic print and pattern designs. In a sea of Scandinavian light woods and minimal lines, Sandra Wall and Lina Frisk exhibited furniture and wallpaper with folkloric, handpainted illustrations that wouldn’t look out of place on a British narrow boat (in a good way).
Bright, swirling florals on black backgrounds adorn their Alma chair and Ki wallpaper print, while Plockeblom (a marvelous word) is a lighter print that resembles vintage, hand pressed flowers.
Bord#1 is a coffee table made from angular tiles of vaarious materials that have been slotted into a criss cross steel frame to create graphic triangles of pattern and colour.
