During Stockholm design week there were exhibitions all over the city. Swedish interiors magazine My Residence curated an exhibition at the Fenix Palace in collaboration with Ariake and Wästerberg.
The Fenix palace was a former entertainment space designed by Hjalmar Westerlund in 1912 . It housed a selection of restaurants, bowling alley, dance hall and theatre until it closed in 1940.
Last year’s exhibition by My Residence, Ariake and Wästberg was all everyone could talk about. So you can imagine the anticipation to see what this years exhibit would be like.
Of course it was beautiful. The exhibition was split into two rooms. One being very neutral and the other dark and dramatic. I chose to focus my pictures on the dark side, it drew me in. I don’t know what that says about me??…. Also my shots of the lighter room were incredibly orange, the wood vs lighting. It was nice but I much prefer the darker room.
Products beautifully displayed included;
The Ariake collection, who have collaborated with designers such as Norm Architects, Keiji Ashizawa, Staffan Holm and Andersson & Voll.
Wästberg, Nedre Foss, and also part and the Faina Collection.
