Spotted at the Nobis Hotel

After a recent visit to Stockholm for the annual Furniture and Light Fair, we had the chance to pop over to the stunning Nobis Hotel on Norrmalmstorg square in Stockholm’s city center. The Nobis Hotel was designed by world-renowned Swedish architect studio Claesson Koivisto Rune and is breathtakingly beautiful in every way.

On arrival we spotted so many of the classic furniture and lighting pieces that are available at FORM, so we thought it was the perfect opportunity to share some of them with you.

To start with, we set our sights on the family of Baklava lamps which were specially developed for the Nobis Hotel by Örsjö, a Swedish lighting company with its roots deep in the southeast corner of southern Sweden. The Baklava floor lamp was spotted alongside the over-sized Great White wall light, also by Örsjö and designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune themselves.

More Örsjö lighting was spotted whilst we were enjoying lunch, this time it was the Aria floor lamp in the dining area. This elegant floor lamp was designed for Operakällaren (the iconic restaurant at Stockholm’s Opera House) when it was renovated in the beginning of 2000. The design trio Claesson Koivisto Rune also designed everything for the interiors of the restaurant and Örsjö produced a special new model of Aria in stainless steel. The shade is manufactured in a textile mesh, which gives it an interesting and tactile aesthetic.


We also spotted ‘Cocoon’ by British manufacturer Modus. Cocoon was designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune (no guesses there) and is available as a family of three differently proportioned chairs and sofas amounting to six elements, which enables the creation of traditional compositions, intimate groups or intriguing mixed seating arrangements.

More details on Cocoon range can be found here in the Product area of our website.
