The winners of the first Form Award at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair

TAF was announced Designer of the Year and Front received the award Furniture of the Year. Form Magazine’s new design award Form Award premiered today at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.

Today five Form Award winners were announced at this year’s edition of Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. Form Award is a new award which replaces the old award Form +1. The jury consists of Form Magazine’s editors, Bo Madestrand and Salka Hallström Bornold.

The five winners of Form Award 2017:

Designer of the Year – TAF with Bleck for Gärsnäs
“With the sofa and armchair in the new collection Bleck for Gärsnäs duo TAF consolidates their position as one of the most interesting design studios. Their idiom is as rigorous as relaxed, a tendency that is driven to perfection with Bleck.”

Newcomer of the Year – Jenny Nordberg with Brus for Källemo
“Jenny Nordberg is one of Swedish craft’s foremost talents and thus anything but a newcomer. With the project Brus for Källemo, she has taken her artistic credo into a new industrial context. Brus is a beautiful contradiction, an object that is both unique and mass-produced.”

Furniture of the Year – Button by Front for Swedese
“With the couch Button for Swedese design duo Front has created a piece of furniture with a strong expression and unexpected details. It is a fashionable piece of multi furniture that with help from various accessories can be adapted to the user’s own personality.”

Lighting of the Year – w171 Alma by Tham & Videgård for Wästberg
”Thin as a razor, soft like a sand dune. Tham & Videgård lamp W171 Alma for Wästberg unites a sculptural expression with a flowing, soft light. A ufo with good intentions.”

Sustainability project of the Year – Phoenix by Luca Nichetto for Offecct
“The chair Phoenix, named after the mythical creature that is resurrected in eternity, is not only a sleek and intelligent design object. It is also a symbol product for Offecct, one of the most important pioneers in the industry in terms of sustainability and circular thinking.”
