Sustainable forest management is not just about preserving the quantity of forests for future generations, it is also about respecting the biological diversity of the forests, the ecology of the species living within it, and the communities affected by the forests. Sustainable forest management will, in other words, maintain the balance between economic wood production and respecting wildlife and vegetation, outdoor recreation, employment and local interests.
Sweden is a country covered by forests and lakes, with 70% of its surface covered by forest, nature is never far away. To Swedes the forest is a place for mushroom picking, hiking and a retreat from urban life. By using pine wood, Swedes bring the tranquility of the forests into their homes. The natural material brings you not only a warm, intimate feeling, but is also beneficial for your physical and mental well-being.
You will be able to touch the beautiful grain and knots of Swedish pine, to feel the mystique of Swedish forest, and to talk to creative designers at Swedish Wood’s booth at Chinas International Furniture Fair EAST Show.
The following designers are honoring the values of Swedish sustainable forestry and the beauty of Swedish nature in their furniture.
Julia Sthillert designed and made the cabinet Tajga.
The cabinet Tajga is a smaller ornamental cabinet, shaped by Julia Sthillert who found her inspiration in Art Deco and Scandinavian design. She has combined historical and iconic elements based on works made by design legends such as the Swedish designer Josef Frank, and Swedish design that she has grown up with.
She has worked exclusively with Swedish pine and tried to adapt the design to enhance the beauty of the material, which to her represents and celebrates the treasure that the northern forests keep.
The choice of pine as a gilding element was made to show its potential as an enhancing detail element, to let it shine as the center of attention. Tajga could be home to tableware, liquor, bed linen or other treasured items. The cabinet is constructed in solid wood, adapted for manufacturing. It can also be altered for knockdown construction.
