The Swedish Design Pavilion has been voted Best Stand 2018 at the London Design Fair.
According to the judges it was chosen because of its collaborative approach, smart use of material and colour and, of course, the selection of fantastic exhibitors who furnished the space.
Sponsored for the first time by Swedish Wood and designed by Karin Sundberg of KarIN architects, the pavilion was constructed entirely of high quality Swedish solid pine, with plywood plinths, all finished in a deep pink translucent stain, which proved to have a considerable wow factor and made the pavilion a central attraction of the Fair.
The wood for the Pavilion was supplied by Mike England Timber, Preston, specialists in timber coating and supplying premium quality timber from Swedish Wood members.
Swedish Wood were happy to get involved because of the opportunity to showcase new, finished wood joinery products alongside some of the finest contemporary Swedish design at an exhibition that attracted over 29,000 interior designers, buyers, manufacturers and members of the public.
As part of this move into interior design, Swedish Wood have produced a special Wood Campus online learning programme, Wood in Interiors, featuring information and inspiration for interiors and furniture design, Wood in Interiors was developed in partnership with the British Institute of Interior Design and carries BIID CPD accreditation.
