During the London Design Festival that took place between 17 and 24 of September 2011, a new furniture collection has been exhibited. The Ambassador of Sweden exclusively opened up her residence at Portland Place for a Swedish design exhibition: HEMMA, Swedish Design Goes London.
Fredrik Färg also used this opportunity to show a new edition of furniture from his new collection. The collection is called Succession and it includes a series of very interesting designs, some of them resembling living creatures. Succession is a collection of items dressed in leather and textile. The collection includes items like stools and cupboards that were brought to life through a series of processes.
The frame of the furniture items is made of an innovative composition of materials which the designer doesn’t share. The base has then been dressed in textile and leather and ropes have been used to around them before being baked. This way the result after cutting the ropes is a pattern without seams. It’s so simple and the results are so spectacular. It’s a sophisticated and refined collection, featuring rugged shapes and even brutal forms. These items have been brought to life and they’ve become living furniture in our homes. It’s an intriguing and very interesting collection that I’m sure is even more spectacular in reality than seen in the pictures.
