Allow me to tell you a few stories for 2018 & 2019!
About design, inspiration and cooperations
Domino is a playful bench/table - an innovative piece of furniture that enables creative set-ups in the public outdoor space. A bench with a half sized table. Place two opposite each other and you have a traditional composition of table and two benches. Place them along one another and you get space where everyone shares the same view. Group several in a row or at an angle, with distance or right next to one another, aligned or half overlapping. Create for example a setup with easy access for a wheelchair.
A contemporary piece of furniture that allows playful combinations - like tiles in a domino game.
DESIGN HOUSE STOCKHOLM
Launched at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2019, Flip Table already got a fair share of attention. Three sizes in one; A small sideboard, a work desk or a full size Dinner table.
Just flip it!
KONSTHANTVERK I TYRINGE
“Lighting is a bit like sound. Sound that you sometimes want to control, direct, amplify. A strong metaphor for sound is the megaphone. With the lighting series Megafon, designer Jesper Ståhl wanted to create a megaphone for light. A visual play that feels familiar but in a new context. "Megafon" gives the light a direction, it amplifies the quality of raw brass and the craftsmanship. A loud statement but completely silent. Megafon is available as a single down pendulum, set at a fixed angle, or an entire symphony of a number of megaphones in a ring.”
Flow is a design classic by now. Introduced about ten years ago with flowing lines, a soft surface and a distinct character. With its increasing popularity we now add a new size to the family. 120 cm with the basin set to left or right. A great example how good design can stand over time.
The very focus of Lystra is to create spotlights and to offer great lighting quality. We now have three families of product each with its story. For 2019, we have added a new size in each of the families. An extra small footprint, an extra small physical size. In order to use the extraordinary quality of Lystra in even more places and settings.
2019 is XS!
KONSTHANTVERK I TYRINGE
On the tour of the factory floor in Tyringe in the South of Sweden, I asked "What is the heritage and story behind the company?". The answer was the wingnut. So what do you do if not design a lamp with the wingnut, to carry the story into a new era. The pendulum lamp consisting of two sheets of metal, offset by 10 mm, creating a subtle gap. or as we say an Swedish; a "Glipa".
I love the soft light from candles I have to admit,
so I made a candlestick machined from a solid piece of metal. Inspired by the highs and lows of a snowy landscape.
Just like a map!
Levels is a wall hung shelf, a playful design of different levels. By the flexibility of placing the shelves a number of alternative compositions can be created. Pressed laminated wood in oak or walnut and laser cut metal. All made in Sweden.
KONSTHANTVERK I TYRINGE
This is a new collaboration; Jesper + Konsthantverk, and the very first product is "Blackstar". Mathematically shaped as a black star, it is a light pendulum with the light source set deep within the concave shape. Like the gravity of a black star. (designed listening to David Bowie album with the same name).
Inspired by the pattern of a sunflower, created for SMD Design 2018. Punched holes in sheet metal makes an outdoor table. It is all about flowers.
