I recently arrived in Melbourne for a fleeting visit to Denfair before returning home from my Copenhagen trip. I can’t wait to start going through all my photos and press info to share with you from my travels, but first I’m going to share some highlights from yesterday. My first visit to the boutique trade event, Denfair is the leading destination for contemporary design in Australia. Held over three days, the fair is founded on principles of authenticity and has a strong focus on Australian emerging and established brands. Bringing together the brightest talent from local and international brands, there were many highlights. I’ll be picking out a few to share, starting today with Fred International.
Following its debut at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Fred presents Fogia’s 2017 collection in an exclusive reimagining for the Australian market. Featuring a beautiful selection of furniture from the Swedish brand, the pieces represent the company’s commitment to moving Scandinavian design forward whilst honouring timeless quality and craft. Continually challenging the notion of Scandinavian design in a contemporary context, this unique showcase presents the debut of new works by Scandinavia’s leading designers including Luca Nichetto, Note Design Studio, Andreas Engesvik, Nina Jobs and Monica Förster.
Fred presents Fogia is complimented with lighting by RUBN, against a clean yet textural backdrop of rattan. The standout exhibit was beautifully designed by Angela Harry, with art direction by Simone Haag.
I’ve picked out a few of my favourite pieces from the collections.
