Fredrik Färg and Emma Marga Blanche are a young couple of designers (with Swedish and French origins respectively) who add personality, technique and innovation. They have been developing a technique for various years in their studio based in Stockholm, baptizing and registering it as Wood Tailoring TM, which includes the use of sewing machines directly over hard materials like wood, to join different parts. This way the pieces have their own aesthetic value and offer surprising and suggestive results such as the Couture armchair, initially presented by BD at last year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. Using the same technique, which needs great artisanal ability, Färg & Blanche have now designed a very functional cabinet with simple decorative patterns. Available in natural wood or stained black and sewn with different colored threads.

Stockholm based design studio FÄRG & BLANCHE was founded in 2010 by the Swedish designer Fredrik Färg and designer Emma Marga Blanche, born in France. As a studio, they work across a wide variety of fields, collaborating with established furniture brands such as BD Barcelona Design, Gärsnäs, Zero and Design House Stockholm to name a few, as well as producing their own collections and limited art pieces for galleries in Milan, New York and Tokyo. Known for their experimental stance, where each expression informs the other, they effortlessly move between the exclusive hand made one off and the industrially produced, without ever losing their distinctive touch.

Since its origins in the 1970’s, BD has always been an atypical company. Its founders and still current owners, who come from an architectural background rather than the business field, have oriented BD’s production from the very start by cultivating beauty, in some cases above their function. Accompanied with artisanal processes instead of mass production, the new products always have more proximity to art than industrial design. Characterised by superior quality, short-series productions (and on occasion limited editions), and unique pieces due to crafted manufacturing. In the 80’s, BD pleasantly surprised by editing Gaudí’s furniture for his famous buildings and in the early 90’s, BD again astounded by introducing an exclusive first collection of furniture and lamps designed by Dalí. Recently the Collections and Designers with an accentuated artistic profile like Jaime Hayon and Doshi Levien, continue to point the way where design and art meet together.
