Impressions Stockholm Furniture Fair

Impressions from Sweden's largest furniture fair, the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2019.
A piece of furniture should maintain the same high level of sustainability, comfort and function whether it is to be used in a public or private environment, and the sofa system Grandfield by French designer Christophe Pillet is testament to this. “Even though I don’t stay for a long time in a sofa, I still expect it to be comfortable. A sofa should be ultimate in all respects no matter where it is placed, and should be made with the same attention to detail regardless of how it will be used,” says Christine Pillet. Headds, “The challenge of creating a sofa that fits into many different environments and appeals to a large number of people lies in finding a simple expression.”
Simplicity is hard to achieve because it can come dangerously close to the banal, but Pillet has always managed to stay on the right side of that boundary, and this is evident in his collaboration with Offecct. Grandfield is a simple, generous, soft sofa that can be extended with platforms and sections to suit multiple needs. It’s a complete solution with a long, sustainable life. Christophe Pillet and Offecct have previously collaborated on the Ezy collection (2014), the Block sofa system (2014), the Montparnasse easy chair (2016) and the Avignon sofa and easy chair (2017). “With his finesse, elegance and simplicity, Christophe Pillet has created an accomplished piece of furniture that will be used in many different environments,” says Kurt Tingdal, one of the founders of Offecct.
