Ciao amici di Miss Lopez, It’s a sunny and hot day in Rome today and we’re going to talk about a great designer Lina Nordqvist and one of her fantastic creations the Family Chairs.
Lina Nordqvist has a background as a set designer in the swedish film industry, as well as a recent degree from Beckman College of Design, Stockholm. Her first work from Design House Stockholm comprises Family chairs , four chairs with unique identitie.
Each and every one of them brings its own individual character to the table. A boisterous family that one by one aspires to stand out as more than plain furniture objects. Almost like actors in a play. Lina Nordqvist’s Family Chairs were presented as a graduation project at Beckmans School of Design with the intention of exploring the Swedish tradition of stick back chairs, and taking the concept of a very economic use of wood into a contemporary setting. The well-known traditional chair is suddenly back en vogue, acquiring a new appeal all of its own. “I’m fascinated by objects, and I like when they have their own precious individuality, something beyond mere technological functionality.” MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, picked up the first shipment of Family Chairs for last year’s autumn collection. And it is hardly surprising that the Family Chairs seem to be made for the stage, since Lina has pursued a career as a professional set designer in the Swedish movie industry for several years. The Family Chairs are available in beech, black, and in March 2010 also in a white-lacquered version.
Family Chairs won the Accent on Design Award in New York August 2009, and was also awarded with Swedish Elle Decoration’s Design Award in 2010.
Aren’t they beautiful? I love this chairs.
Keep inspired and feelgood womanhood!!!
Ci vediamo presto!!! see you soon!!
