Happy reunions and brand new friends – a colourful get-together this autumn.

Both new acquaintances and cherished old friends are knocking on the door – our new autumn collection is now ready to be seen and wants to mingle. It will be an exciting gathering where togetherness is expressed in Scandinavian colours and soft, playful designs. Innovation and tradition meet creativity in a cycle that never ends. And the meeting between sustainability, ergonomics and design allows you to both sit comfortably for ages and to mingle – just what’s needed for casual and convivial gettogethers.

Dito chair and armchair by Stefan Borselius

Nobody can fail to notice when two-part Dito is in the room. In recycled plastic and hemp, the airy design and natural feel of these chairs make them easy to spread out, stack up or hang over the edge of a table. They come made entirely of plastic, semi-upholstered or fully-upholstered in contrasting colours. With arm rests – or without. Dito is at ease in all situations, whether these involve loud conversations or meetings in silence.

Lola chair

by Margot Barolo Lola is the friend you can trust and the friend you can lean on. In a shape that is friendly to look at, this chair has a personality that is both inclusive and humorous. A complete character with its fine details, solid stitching and careful pleating. But also comfortable and easy-going. With different fabrics, colours and materials, Lola can be configured to be chameleon-like in a room – or take centre stage as a real head-turner.

Tinnef - New table tops by Charlotte von der Lancken

Once breakfast is over, the yoghurt pots are given a new lease of life and transformed into a unique, attention-seeking table top. The white table top has silvery foil details and a frame in classic ash or oak. Or you can have both the top and frame made out of wood. Is it rubbish or is it material? Old or new? The answer is both – and together with its colourful cousins made from recycled plastic bottles, the Tinnef family becomes a natural talking point around the table.

Canard chair by Lars Hofsjö

Playful Canard lives up to its French name – just like a duck it looks as if it is challenging its sense of balance. But with an elegant metal frame and light ash seat, Canard is both stable and comfortable. Neat, stackable and suspendable, it looks good in any setting. In different colours or the same colour, Canard is a natural talking point. That’s when the chair itself isn’t doing all the talking.

Deep Forest ‒ 2 new patterns by Nina Jobs

The summer forest is now being joined by completely new tree tops on which to rest your gaze. A sparser winter forest? Or a slightly fuller spring forest? Or a mixture of both – as is usually the way. In the harmony of nature, voices are softened and with all the colours of the forest available, the background will be just as it should be – attractive without being obtrusive.

Open collaboration finale – Skandiform and Margot Barolo launch the Lola chair.

From one experimental project to another. Skandiform and designer Margot Barolo have turned the traditional way of working together upside down. And the combination of digital meetings and practical developments has been open for everyone to follow.

big wide world around us. Lola was cool, sharp and funny – but at the same time dependable when times were tough,” says designer Margot Barolo, who is also a Programme Director and senior lecturer at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm.

“It has been a very exciting development process, made even more enjoyable by the fact we have been able to invite everyone who was interested to follow us throughout the entire journey. As the pandemic set limits, the collaboration also became completely digital – and I think that challenge has made a good chair even better,” says Johanna Cahné, Design and Marketing Manager at Skandiform.

Within the framework of The Kinship Method, five Swedish designers each developed their own chair and then built on each other’s ideas to create new versions. In a new collaboration, Skandiform has worked with Margot Barolo – the designer who initiated The Kinship Method – to develop one of the first generation chairs even further. The project, which began during spring 2020, is now due to be launched in autumn 2021:

“The Lola of my childhood always dressed in a turban with red lips and high-heeled sandals” Lola chair – the friend you can trust and lean on. “The Lola of my childhood always dressed in a turban with red lips and high-heeled sandals to pick raspberries for our quickly thrown-together cream cake. Summers were followed by winters with a home filled with exciting furniture and deep scents from the

the seat and angles to achieve maximum comfort. While concentrating on the stitching and pleating added refinement. The comfortable character of Lola with thoughtful details and solid stitching was then introduced in her various guises at the Southern Sweden Design Days in May 2021.

Prototype 1, 2 and 3

It has been possible to follow the Barolo Project – which during the pandemic became an entirely digital collaboration – through various channels and social media platforms. Over the course of the year, four prototypes were tested and refined before the finished version of Lola finally emerged. During construction, numerous adjustments were made to the metal frame to create the neatest and most durable chair possible. Work on sitting comfort involved continuously testing

Canard by Lars Hofsjö

“It’s the balance, proportions and tiniest of details that can make a difference. Canard has a neatly-proportioned, soft style at the same time as its slightly sturdier frame makes it stable and sassy. It’s a fun chair, quite simply.” / Lars Hofsjö
