Gemla Fabrikers

Ever since its inception in 1861, Sweden’s oldest furniture maker Gemla has been perfecting the art of taming wood and shaping it into beautiful chairs.

GALLERI Gemla unveiled ‘Homely 2.0’, a collaborative endeavor by designer Synnöve Mork and artist Cilla Ramnek. Their collective vision has reinterpreted the essence of the Gemla brand, showcasing a dynamic installation that effortlessly blends archival Gemla furniture with traditional Swedish patterns. Taking centre stage is the prominent and oversized Folkform Plissé Lamp, fostering a nuanced interplay of shape, size, form, and function.


A meeting place for art, handcrafted and crafted objects.


Founded in 1893 with the aim of making durable, quality wooden furniture. Gärsnäs presented a scaled-back booth at this year’s Stockholm Design Fair. Repurposing new and reused models, rugs thrown on the floor, podiums draped in linen and paper string marking out the various sections.

A visit to Stockholm wouldn’t be complete without stopping by the House of Gärsnäs, a showroom and boutique with various rooms each presenting a different character. In a series of beautiful rooms, Gärsnäs presented new designs alongside classics and favourites.

"Gärsnäs is an elegant brand with a long history and our wooden furniture fits a more humble presentation. It feels fresh, while remaining sensible and modest."
