Stockholm based furnishing label Hem has added four new product lines to their catalogue for 2022. The Swedish online store is introducing the works of world-renowned designers Faye Toogood, the late Pauline Deltour, Luca Nichetto and Arthur Arbesser. The collection, launched on the official Hem website, comprises two different table series, namely, the Stump tables and Lolly side tables, the Alphabeta lighting collection and the Arch throws.

Hem, named after the Swedish word for ‘home’, was founded by designer Petrus Palmér. Since its establishment in 2014, the brand has grown into a major player in the Scandinavian design scene; having grown a catalogue with over 300 high design products that are sold in over 34 countries. With the mission to represent innovative, original and high quality designs from all over the world, Hem has presented works from designers like Max Lamb, Luca Nichetto, Nendo, Philippe Malouin, and GamFratesi as a hub for progressive design and thinking that inspires the design community through innovation, collaboration and experimentation.

The Stump tables by British designer Faye Toogood are a set of three tables that are intelligently crafted with MDF (Medium-Density Fibreboard). The UK-based designer uses the fibreboard, a relatively lightweight material, and moulds them into shapes that look like they were carved out of a single chunk of wood, hence the name Stump. Defined by alluring curves and clean edges, the Stump tables are understated pieces of furniture that come in three different shapes and sizes. While two of them are almost rectangular slabs, the final one has a circular top and cylindrical stand. All the pieces are designed to appear like they were each crafted out of one single piece of wood. Toogood’s understanding of materials helps her provide extreme functionality to her design process and products.

The Lolly tables, designed by the late French designer, Pauline Deltour, have been dubbed as the ‘perfect grab and go’ table because of its sleek design, light weight and exceptional versatility. With its hollow leg, the table can easily hide away messy wires, and the foot of the table is thin enough to slide under any bed, chair or sofa, allowing the side table to fit with your furniture like a jigsaw piece. The table comes in four different colour options, letting the table masterfully blend in with other furniture and interiors. Hem and Palmér were able to finalise the design with Deltour and her team before the designer’s untimely death last September.

Venetian designer Luca Nichetto adds a new piece to the collection: the Alphabeta wall light. The wall-light is a bi-directional product that throws light both upwards and downwards, thus fulfilling a dual purpose. The wall light comes with eight different shade shapes and colour options, allowing the product to be customised into several different configurations.

The final product added to the Hem catalogue is the Arch Throw series by Austrian designer, Arthur Arbesser. The throws are inspired by the design heritage and architecture of Arbesser’s home city, Vienna. Made from New Zealand lambswool, the throws provide extreme warmth with a soft touch. It carries imprints of little arches all over it, alluding to Vienna’s baroque architecture style.
