BXXLGHT is a design company founded in 2013 by Daniela Upmark in Stockholm, Sweden. They specialise in designing light-boxes which can be customised by changeable letters. There are three rows on each light-box, and the maximum amount of letters is 9 per row on the large ones and 9 per row on the smaller ones.

“New York 2011, that is where I came up with the idea of BXXLGHT. Something felt missing in the Swedish design market. Especially at a time when home decor is the focus and where personal creativity is so important. During a trip in 2011 to New York I came up with the idea of BXXLGHT. I wanted to find art that stood out and that did not have to cost as much as an artwork from a gallery or from exclusive auctions. For each season we will let a creator interpret a light box, which will be available as a limited edition” – Daniela Upmark (CEO and designer for BXXLGHT)

I think these light-boxes are so creative in a simple and modern way, and definitely need one in my future home. Now just to choose what it should say (good thing that I can change my mind as many times as I want)..

Here are some great examples from their Instagram feed:

Swedish design studio Form Us With Love recently designed the affordable & stackable JANINGE chair collection for IKEA, and I am in love with the clean, simple & modern design.

“The great idea behind the JANINGE collection is the democratization of design, to create a durable construction, based on the needs of both domestic and public environments” – IKEA

“Our collaborative objective was to find the perfect multi-purpose chair, easy to fall in love with and quick to maintain” – Form Us With Love

JANINGE comes in light grey, crisp white, and bright yellow (my favorite!) and is a mix of 75% polypropylene, 75% glass fiber and 25% pigment. It can be used both indoor and outdoors.

OATLY

I’m a sucker for products with great packaging design, so when I saw the OATLY carton in the shop I just had to get it. I was even more excited when I found out it’s Swedish and actually tastes good.

The packaging & rebrand of Oatly was done by the Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors who treated the packaging as an advertisement space for the brand, playing on the fact that a lot of us do shop with our eyes.
