Designer of the Year Exhibition: Note Design Studio

We have long admired Note Design Studio and their portfolio of work so when we got the opportunity of a private tour around their Designer of the Year Exhibtion at Stockholm Furniture Fair, how could we resist?!

Note Design Studio was originally founded in 2008 as an Interior Design studio, but quickly changed into the design studio we know and love today; a collaboration of seven creative minds, who work in different roles and each have different strengths that they all bring to the team.

The exhibition was created by one of Sweden’s leading stylists Lotta Agaton, of Swedish Interior magazine ‘Residence’, after Note won their Designer of the Year Award 2015. Agaton curated a selection of Note’s products and created well-styled displays within cube-shaped sets, around Stockholm’s ArkDes Architecture Museum. The seven cube displays where based around different rooms within a home and featured a strict colour palette based on Note’s typical hues; one of the things we love about Note is their eye for an amazing colour palette, which is thanks to Note’s Susanna Wåhlin, who we call the ‘Queen of Colour’, who was kind enough to lead us around on our private tour of the space.

The aim of the exhibition was to highlight the growing importance of well styled images, as today this sometimes gets forgotten about, however due to the rise in social media, the way we perceive things has changed and it has never been more important to ensure that your images portray your products in the best possible light, in order to give consumers a true representation of that particular product.

Some of the products we saw at the exhibition, we’re proud to say are available at Form. Some of our Note favourites include the Mitab Boet stool, Zilenzio’s Dezibel and Focus screens, Ex.t’s Fuse lamp collection and Zilio A&C’s Seleri chair, which can be found in Stockholm’s Finefood’s restaurant, whose interior was also designed by Note and happens to be one of our favourite stops when we’re visiting.

Thanks to our friends at Relay Design Agency for arranging the whole thing, we really enjoyed it! Take a look at some of Note’s products, we promise you won’t be disappointed. If you see anything you like, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, you can contact us by email at or call 0151 363 0544.
