Last week I was invited to a great press preview of the 2013 collection by BoConcept. They organised a great press event in their Munich flagship store. But it was not only a mere collection presentation. It was way merrier: BoConcept is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.
Founded 1952 as a carpenter's shop in Denmark, BoConcept has remarkably contributed to promote Danish design in the entire world and stands for refined and affordable Scandinavian furniture and home accessories. Already in the 50s, the Danish weaver Vibeke Klint provided some classy textile designs for the first pieces of furniture. The new 2013 collection revives some of these designs and showcases that good designs is truly timeless.
Furthermore, the new collection features a great deal of functional and elegant designs. Classic and simple shapes and colours inspired by the 50s like petrol set the collection's tone. The home accessories line, however, features a broader colour palette with vibrant colours, graphic patterns, natural materials and hints of metal for an industrial charm. I've seen many things I really liked and could actually imagine in my home, too. Well, I snapped a few pics for you, of course of all those things I particularly liked. What do you think of these Danish goodies?
