Last week, Il·lacions showcased the products created by O-Cults, a collective of young product designers based in Barcelona, and who had been selected by BCD to show their designs at the Stockholm Design Week last February. I thought it would be a good idea to share them with you, so here they are: O-Cults – to Stockholm and back.
The cosy Orwell sofa was conceived as a place to isolate and hide oneself from the world, and was designed by Álvaro Goula of Cargo Collective. The Noem Chair (below) was designed by Nutcreatives + José F. López to complement the NOEM housing modules created by ThinkCO2 and are already under production.
Combining a side table, a clock and a mirror, Carles Margarit created Clock, a table designed to inject an informal and natural into our hallways.
Bruno Peral, who is part of the Art-Tic team of designers, created the gorgeous Rafia chair (which is now on my wish list) and which will be produced in collaboration with Marcel Wanders. The cute Voyeur screen is a design by 3Patas, a collective of (you guessed it) 3 designers: Carla Neila, Isabel González y Santiago Hermosín.
The comfy Surprise! chairs with their simple lines and cute, colourful cushioned seating, are a creation by Gaspar González, and are produced by CONCEPTA – 2010. The sexy and ever so simple Folio lamps (I love the table lamp!) are the brain child of Pablo Figuera, who won the Design Plus award with this design.
The Soft Aquarium and (below) Lápiz were both created by Álvaro Goula at ECAL as workshop projects run by Chris Kabel and Miguel Vieira Baptista respectively.
It’s so exciting to see local designs being showcased abroad, and production and prizes the result. Well done O-Cults for your trip to Stockholm and back!
*** Unfortunately, Il·lacions closed its doors in the Summer of 2012. New projects are in the making – as soon as I have news, I will let you know via the Cute Suite blog!
