Bla Station Presentation

Last week we invited a group of architects and designers to join us in the showroom for a presentation on Bla Station from Ruth Simpson the UK agent. Ruth spoke about the history of the company and explained the thinking behind many of the products. We also learnt how passionate the company is with regards sustainability; many of the products within the range have environmental awards and all Bla Station products are manufactured in Scandinavia.

We had lots of pieces of Bla Station furniture for everyone to try and enjoy such as the Innovation C designed by Fredrik Mattson and the new Oppo chairs, designed by Stefan Borselius and launched in Milan earlier this year. This is the first time they have been displayed in Scotland! There was much discussion about the sense of happiness the products gave everyone and indeed the Oppo chairs were compared to the Teletubbies! All our visitors felt the Innovation C was a great product and had lots of ideas of projects where it could be used.
Once all furniture had been put through its paces we went next door to La Garrigue for an early supper – always a treat!
