Stockhold Design Week 2024 – 6 lamp designs to get to know


In this blog post I am taking a look at some of the lighting design trends shown at the biggest Scandinavian design annual fair.

Hey there, fellow design enthusiasts!

Ready to dive into the latest and greatest lighting trends straight from the Stockholm Design Week 2024?

Well, buckle up because there are some serious style shifts happening in the Scandinavian design scene!

You know how Scandinavian design has always been the cool kid on the block, with its sleek minimalism and earthy vibes? Yeah, well, it’s shaking things up a bit. Forget about those muted tones and neutral palettes because warm shades are taking over! Think soft terracotta, olive green, and blush pink adding some serious depth and warmth to those Nordic interiors.

Now, before you start shouting “maximalism alert,” let me set the record straight. This isn’t about going overboard with clutter and chaos. Nah, it’s more like a call for some joy and cheer in our minimalist paradise. Picture a pop of color here and there to jazz up those clean lines and simple shapes.

And speaking of shapes, let’s talk about these six lamps stealing the spotlight at the show!

First up, we’ve got the Audo Copenhagen crew, blending Danish heritage with a modern twist. Their Resonant Pendant, originally designed by Alf Svensson and Yngvar Sandström back in the 1950s, is a real head-turner, crafted from polished brass and boasting a timeless mid-century vibe. Trust me, this baby is worth every penny of its €2550 price tag!
