2018/02/06 ~ 2018/ 02/10 期間舉行，以下是 Gärsnäs 展場想表達的概念 ～
Gärsnäs 的展場委託 TAF Arkitektkontor 設計，設定把 Gärsnäs 的品牌價值和 TAF 建築設計結合，最後，材料和手工藝置入展場空間的地板、牆壁、隔板、和裝飾物顏色裏頭，而家具成為舞台中的主角。
Timber wall frame (手觸的溫度)
展場的後牆是由裸露的木框架所構成，這是常見的建築內牆構造，在視覺印象中，讓人強烈地感覺受到材料和手工藝的存在，也是呼應了 Gärsnäs 百年工藝的價值。
Monochrome islands (綺麗繽紛的色塊島)
Gabriella Gustafson 建築師希望 Gärsnäs 的展場在柔和的氣氛下，更為突出 ; 同時，也強調出 Gärsnäs 對於品質、材料、和用傳統方式生產家具的熱情。
A long-term concept (永續環境的對話)
展覽結束後，通常會產生許許多多的廢棄物，Gärsnäs 為了要達到永續的展場設計，回到家具的生產概念，讓地板、牆壁、和隔板用木材來裝飾，有些組件在展覽過後，會移到 Gärsnäs 的展示空間來使用，而其他的部件則可以被回收。在家具方面，使用到去年展覽的桌子框架，讓展場成為永續設計的模範。
Bleck partitions (畫框的視角)
各種不同大小尺寸的置物架扮演6個島嶼區隔的角色，它的結構是由 Bleck 休閒椅演變而來 (休閒椅是 TAF Arkitektkontor 於2017年所設計)，靈感來自於畫框，加入手工藝裝飾的置物架，更突顯出 Gärsnäs 展場的細緻度。置物架或許將來會成為 Gärsnäs 的另一項新的產品，而今年 Bleck 新的成員是2人和3人座的沙發，讓 Bleck 系列的產品更為完整。
Timber frames and islands in this year’s stand
On 6 February we present our new designs for 2018 at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. The stand is designed by TAF Arkitektkontor who were commissioned to incorporate our values with their architecture. The result is a space where materials and craftsmanship feature in the floor, walls and partitions, decorated in down-to-earth colours that let the furniture take centre stage.
Timber wall frame
The back of the stand shows a timber wall frame. The concept is that you see inside a wall, where the construction is accentuated to give a feeling for craftsmanship and materials.
This year’s fair presents six new designs that each get their own space in the stand. From above, it looks like six islands of different colours, the spaces following the same range of colours as the furniture it represents. The colours are chosen after the fabrics primarily recommended for each respective model. The concept of the monochrome colour scheme is to reinforce the boundaries between the respective furniture groups, while at the same time the down-to-earth colours become an extension of the furniture.
“We want the stand to stick out by being toned down, and simultaneously we want to highlight the passion Gärsnäs has for quality, materials and a more classical way of making furniture,” says Gabriella Gustafson, designer at TAF Arkitektkontor.
A long-term concept
Building a stand for a fair usually involves a lot of waste. To make a more sustainable stand this year’s version uses the same long-term concept that goes into producing our furniture. The floor, walls and partitions are made of wood, of which some components will be moved to our showroom after the fair, and other parts can be reused. Furthermore, we have already begun reusing previous material: the table frame was recovered from last year’s stand.
The shelves separating the islands follow the same construction as the Bleck easy chair, which was last year’s new design from TAF Arkitektkontor. The shape is inspired by picture frames and the shelves are decorated with handmade artwork that reflects details in the Gärsnäs showroom. Eventually, the shelves might become a new model, but already this year you can see other new models in the Bleck series, where one of the islands showcases Bleck as a two- and three-seat sofa.
“All together the islands give an overall image of the brand, while each island represents specific furniture,” says Gabriela Gustafson, designer at TAF Arkitektkontor.
