it always takes a few weeks to reflect on the best of the best you’ve spotted at furniture fairs, especially one as big and overwhelming as maison! and despite not being a new find (indeed, i’ve written about them several times already), one of the stand out presentations for me, and the one i keep coming back to, was hay.dk.
i knew before i got there that i was going to love their stand – in fact, i actively sought it out – but it still managed blow me away all the same. they were absolutely heaving for starters (always a good sign) and when i managed to work my way onto the stand i could see why. i’d never seen the products in the flesh before, always admiring their 2d forms online, and up close they were even more dazzling; all geometric forms and luscious bright hues, tactile textiles and smooth surfaces.
like most around me i felt like a kid in a candy store, oohing and aahing over plissé folders, scholten & baijings colour and dot carpets, pastel-hued bookbinder notepads and hexangonal kaleido trays by clara von zweigbergk. i only hope there were a few uk dealers who were doing the same!
