Eckmann Studio made a strong visuel trendzone at Formland this year. The trendzone was build up like a physical shop - a MIND shop!
The concept was to make the shopping experience calm and in balance - a welcome break from a busy everyday life. The "shop" had selective items from over 150 exhibitors - but had achieved to make a clear and believable concept by using a strong visuel design - logo(the eye), logotype, sticker, lamps, graphics ect.
The place is called Favela - and is a poor neighbourhood on the Santa Maria hill in Rio de Janeiro - what a facelift! The project is sposered by a local paint company - and the painters are locals, who have been educated while working on the project.
Oh, I would like to see it one day!

One of the big themes this season is recycling! Here's a few pics from our Moments collection.
The yellow paper/magazine holder is made of old cycle racks - it's avaible in yellow and red.
The letters are made of old iron with print/colour.
The stool and sofa is a part of our Canvas Collection. The items in the Canvas Collection are all handmade from old recycled canvas. The canvas has been collected in India, where it has been used for many different purposes: as covers on old trucks, in the fields where farmers have used it covering their crain, etc.
The large drum is made by old drums, which has been cleaned, painted and have en cool industrial print.
- that means that each piece is unique and have a very personal expression!
The items will be in the shops end August/start September!
Welcome back! Here at House Doctor we have had a wonderful holiday with great experiences, sunny days and lots and lots of new inspiration!
We have looked forward to this day for a while now - Today we launch our new Autumn collection, Moments 2010!
Moment’s collection autumn/winter 2010 really emphasizes nature and its materials, colours and diversity. The look is raw, simple, and surprising. Raw wood is one of the big themes – just as raw iron and aesthetic shapes. The colours are – as autumn in general – more quiet. The powerful colours are used to give the design contrast, opposition and excitement. We hope that you will enjoy what you see …
