Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Fair report: Hem 2010

This weekend it's time for the Hem 2010 fair here in Stockholm, and I was there yesterday to check it out. As usual I think the trend exhibitions were the most interesting parts, the rest is mostly just a few stalls with interior products and then hundreds of stalls is filled with stuff like heat pumps, super insulated windows and under floor heating products. I didn't take any pictures myself, because the lighting there makes everything look like crap, so I borrowed some from the fair's homepage instead. Here you go!

The two pictures above are from the exhibition by the Swedish Fashion Council's CEO Lotta Ahlvar. She also gave a very inspiring talk, mostly about the natural trend, illustrated by funny youtube clips of sheep herding!

    Haha, don't be too impressed now! What you see here is quite frankly almost all the good stuff. There were a few more nice things, but mostly it was crap. But the trend expos, where the pics are from, were better than ever!
