swedish designer alexander lervik was commisioned to design this year’s installation for the lobby of the nordic light hotel, during stockholm furniture fair 2010. ‘transit’ as the name suggests is based around the idea of travel. briefcases hang from the ceiling illuminated with purple LED lighting. guests have the opportunity to relax on sofas consisting of suitcase cushions.

‘I have always been fascinated by the hotel milieu and I wanted to create an exhibition that links us to the physical setting. the hotel is a temporary home when you’re on the move. at the same time it’s a venue for new meetings between people, each with their own story and personal situation in their baggage,’ says alexander lervik.
