During the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2017, Gärsnäs presented two new products – the Bleck sofa and the Dandy chair.
Dandy – by Pierre Sindre
Pierre Sindre had been looking for an easy chair to disappear in for ages, so quite simply Dandy evolved from this desire. This easy chair is large and spacious with a high enclosing back that really makes a statement. The rattan back filters the light just right, creating seclusion without feeling closed in. It is a space for rest and contemplation, both at home or a public environment. It can be a place to withdraw to, for a pleasant time, to read a book or simply to look out the window.
Bleck – by Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom
For a long time, Bleck’s working name was Construction Sofa because of designers’ interest in exposed constructions. Inspiration came mostly from the reverse sides of oil paintings, which reveal the canvas stretcher construction. Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom started by studying a variety of frames and fell for the triangular braces used to reinforce the corners. Since they also use such a brace for functionality and decor, and this is where the collection’s name comes from in Swedish, they have worked deliberately to make the sofa and easy chair just as attractive from the back as the front.
