London Design Festival 2016

Since we are now all simmered down after a without a doubt, hectic Design Week, we thought we would share with you a few photos captured during LDF by our team.

The Day2 Team spread out in attempt to visit as much as we could in the time we had as well as juggling our work in the office. We managed to get to Design Junction, V&A, London Design Fair and 100% Design. As you'll probably agree, we only managed to capture a small snippet of London Design Festival but we enjoyed it all the same. Now on to Orgatec!

Day2 visit Stockholm Furniture Fair

Day2 visit Stockholm Furniture Fair

Day2 Furniture Consultant Iain Robinson has returned from Sweden's capital city sharing with us the highlights of Stockholm Furniture Fair...

The past few years have seen a rise in Scandinavian design, which was particularly prominent at this years design show.  Particular highlights included the usual culprits with new product launches from Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen and Hay with their Palissade collection. Along with other furniture and lighting brands such as +Halle and their Nest Collection, Lammults with their Attach table and Penne chair. Other brands which really stood out include the blending of brand new product and the resurection of the older from Gubi and the bright colours and bold shapes from Bla Station.

We got an incredibly good feeling about Stockholm this year and like London is getting busier every year. Having an international aesthetic that is so easily transferred worldwide is making Stockholm, like London, somewhere where we can seek out inspiration on so many different levels. We will be returning next year to see the how it has evolved.

In the meantime, see below a few products which caught our eye. Enjoy!

Aimée visits Bilbao!

Back in November 2015 our lovely A&D support, Aimée, was invited to visit the prestigious Basque Living event in Bilbao, Spain. A great short trip thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who was lucky enough to go along. On her return she filled us all in on everything she saw, so we thought we'd share that with you...

The group, largely made up of architects, designers and furniture consultants were introduced to a variety of new products and some new manufacturer names; most of which are now very much being specified on our current jobs. A name that particularly stood out is Treku, who just so happened to be the ones who kindly sent the invitation, we were particularly impressed with their innovative modular storage solutions.

Other names which we were impressed by were Sellex and their Fast tables, with rapidly interchangeable tops. Aimée told us, “The Fast tables are brilliantly versatile, it was great to see a flip top table designed in such a unique way”. Other names included Enea and their Lotus chair, B-lux lighting and Ondaretta, all of which are now considered for upcoming and current projects. 

As well as enjoying the design and furniture scene, Aimée was able to see the wonderful city of Bilbao. Taken on 2 architectural tours around the city; Aimée was able to see the sites from the Guggenheim Museum to major architectural transformations in the Ensanche and not to mention the lovely surprise pieces of sculptural art (Salvador Dali for example) dotted around the city. Even simply seeing how much the architecture housing the transporation systems has improved in both the airport and the underground was impressive. The whole trip was rounded off with fantastic company and spoilt with 10 course tapas meals and lots of fine wine!

These are just a few of the pictures that Aimee took on her trip however we will be showing some more on Twitter and Instagram in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
