Spook – 2011
Spook armchair, made exclusively out of form felt, is at home in many different settings such as lounges and libraries. The inspiration for this design has come from the ghostly silhouettes that are created whenever chairs are covered with a sheet. Spook armchair is, in part, a product of free form, where the material has been given the opportunity to realise the potential of its own characteristics. In this way, every Spook armchair is unique: no two products are identical.
Blå Station is a family business. We are located in what used to be a sewing factory in Åhus, on the southeast coast of Sweden where the ocean is just as restless as we are.
We are driven by a desire to put into production furniture that we like and which – to our minds – deserves a place in the market. Curiosity is our fuel, as we keep searching, not for the already known and established, but for the unexpected, yet-to-be discovered.
Motivated by the pleasure of what we are doing, we continue to develop new products. But for us, it isn´t enough that a product has never been shown before. For it to be considered new, it must be able to demonstrate a new attitude towards shape, function, material or the industrial production process. New furniture should be better at something and offer an alternative to what is already available.
Our thoughts are focused on the interiors that sourrund us – how they are built and how they work. How do we interact in the public space? Has today´s society added new demands? Has our way of socializing changed? There are many questions that inspire us to think differently.
At Blå Station, we´ve taken a stand and made our choices based on emotions and our consciences. We follow our seven criteria for sustainable development and furthermore, have chosen to produce everything in Sweden. We have made this choice in order to ensure each link in the chain of production follows our criteria.
To meet today´s demands and desires, we belive it is necessary to have and open and innovative mind, a child´s curiosity as well as a heart that rejects shortcuts and apathy.
