designer jens fager who exhibited in the greenhouse 2008 was tasked with designing this year’s greenhouse hall at the stockholm furniture fair 2010. using the design and geometric theories of roman architect and engineer vitruvius as his starting point, fager’s design helped put the the focus on the work of exhibitors.

‘the task of designing the greenhouse relates primarily to creating and environment for exhibitors. it is them who should shine, not me. it is a case of emphasizing the exhibitors.‘- JF

  • i appreciate that he didn’t want to divert the attention from the actual exhibitors with his simple designs. it is refreshing to see a designer that is not just designing for himself but accommodating others.
