Design Shanghai Picks Award to BEdesign

BEdesign's Fan stool has won the Design Pick Award at Asia's leading international design event, the Design Shanghai fair, held 14-17th March 2018. A panel of selected judges chose the Fan stool as a design product that "appeals and inspires, and speaks the design language of Design Shanghai".

We could not be more excited and honored about the award! - Bette

The inspiration behind the Fan stool's unique shape comes from sun rays seeping through a forest of birch trees, a scenery that for many is distinctively Finnish. The Fan stool gathered a lot of attention at Design Shanghai due to its unique bent plywood legs, a design method that has been used in Finnish design for years. It gives the stool a unique and minimalistic look, a fresh design honoring the classic shape.

“We could not be more excited and honored about the award. It is a special feeling when your design that you have worked on for years gets recognized. These are the moments that prove you are doing the right thing, these are the moments we work so hard for” – says Bette Eklund, designer of BEdesign.
