stockholm design week 09: form us with love

the swedish design collective form us with love teamed up with the design company mitab and the nordic sea hotel to develop a special line of furnishings for hotel lobbies and lounges. this collection began with a careful research project examining the lobby environment and collected interviews from hotel staff, bartenders, cleaners and other stakeholders. the studio analyzed these different perspectives and combined them with mitab’s functional and contemporary mandate to design furniture that met all the requirements. the result is a hotel collection consisting of four pieces ‘lobby’ sofa, ‘piccolo’ side table, ‘waiter’ dining table and ‘porter’ dining chair. prototypes of the collection were displayed at the nordic sea hotel during stockholm design week, while the final models should be ready later this year. here is a sneak peak at the collection and some behind the scenes design process images.
