In 2015 Note Design Studio will design Greenhouse, Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair's hall for promising young designers. This time, they have chosen to focus on the product and the designer. A visit to Greenhouse should be like stepping into a designer’s mind – a space for reflection and projection of dreams, a space where original ideas and prototypes can be experienced before they multiply and spread further. For the next Fair, which will take place from February 3-7, 2015, Greenhouse also has a new jury.
–We have again looked into the basic concept of Greenhouse; last year, we focused on the social aspect – the meetings of exhibitors, press and manufacturers. This year, we will focus on the product and the designer. Greenhouse is indeed a hotbed where new talents will have the chance to show their projects to the industry for the first time. Many designers will showcase a unique item, a prototype or idea in the hope that it will be manufactured and distributed around the world, says Johannes Carlström at Note.
In designing the exhibit, Note has chosen to work with a closed, limited space in a way that makes it more spacious and turns it into a landscape, a universe of its own in the middle of the Victoria Hall.
– We want to create a space that becomes a reflection of the visitors and exhibitors in Greenhouse, a place that embodies one of the principles of Greenhouse – the ability to reach out to a bigger world with one’s products and ideas, says Alexis Holmqvist at Note.
Note is a Stockholm-based design studio working with architecture, product design and design strategies for Swedish and international companies. www.notedesignstudio.se.
