Note Design Studio and Muuto x Sulla Bocca di Tutti

Each year, Stockholm Furniture Fair asks a prominent designer or design team to create their Design Bar. In 2017, the choice fell upon Stockholm-based Note Design Studio.

Their intention for this year’s pop-up restaurant ’Sulla Bocca di Tutti’ was to merge Scandinavian and Italian aesthetics. They aimed to provide visitors with the sensation of a warm embrace in the coldest month of the year. Note Design Studio chose MUUTO to be their furniture partner for the project.

“The fair is in February, and Stockholm is super cold, a hostile environment! We wanted to create something that was soft and warm – a place that you really want to go to.”
Johannes Carlström
– Interior architect & Founder of Note

On Everybody’s Lips

The name of the restaurant ‘Sulla Bocca di Tutti’ translates into ‘On Everybody’s Lips’. It was chosen to complement the restaurant’s Italian menu but also referst to how the Design Bar often becomes the center of the fair: The go-to place to meet, eat, and catch up with clients, friends and colleagues.

”We wanted to do something generous – generous in how everything would taste, but also aesthetically.”
Susanna Wåhlin
– Interior architect at Note

The Design Bar area being a completely open space inspired Note Design Studio to work with different levels, layers and volume. Small screens and greenery were inserted between the different areas to make the various dining settings more secluded, almost private. To add warmth and a feeling of comfort, Note chose to work with warm hues of dusty pink and red in combination with soft, curvy lines and plush furniture. Generosity at its best!

”We always end up working with pink tones in our concepts. I guess we all like the warm glow of the color. Colors can be a nice way of keeping a big area together, and can make it more visible and clear from afar.”

Something Bitter

Johannes Carlström, co-founder of Note Design Studio, explains how they deliberately decided not to aim for a ‘perfect match’ when choosing the color combinations: A mix of dusty pinks, terracotta hues, bright reds and darker, more brownish reds. When looking at the different color swatches, some of the tones seemed to clash, but when combined altogether the setting became coherent, and even more vibrant and interesting.
