Renowned design due Raw Edges has designed the Kvadrat stand for the Stockholm Furniture 2013. ‘The Picnic’ features a massive wooden construction of Dinesen Douglas Fir and a textile installation consisting of 1,500 straps made out of a selection of twenty different Kvadrat textiles.
The stand is build out of two main elements: the wooden structure and the textile straps hanging from the ceiling. The wooden structure functions as display for the Kvadrat swatches and corresponds with the appearance of a wooden cabin. Made from Douglas Fir from the Danish floor company Dinesen, the horizontal wooden panels have been angled in such a way so it can hold the textile samples allowing the visitors a closer look.
The impressive textile installation resembles vertical roof tiles and create a three dimensional volume. Functioning as a space divider it was inspired byweeping willow trees, creating an intimate space within the big exhibition hall.
Alkalay & Mer have drawn on inspiration from their commission earlier in the year to design an installation for Design Miami/Basel 2009. read more
After winning the Designers of the Future Award the design duo have collaborated with Established & Sons for a second time following on from the international success of Stack launched during Milan 2008. Established & Sons LIMITED will house an innovative installation of oiled oak herringbone parquet brick flooring. Taking a time-honored floor type, Alkalay & Mer have developed the traditional finish by staining the individual bricks from a pallet of 15 different colours. By taking an everyday product and twisting the core element of it they have developed a very characteristic mosaic design.
