Wednesday last week marked a huge milestone for Melo, celebrating 1 year since the official launch. Thursday last week we celebrated an even bigger milestone as Sweden’s foremost design and interior magazine, Residence, announced the winners of the Residence Stora Formpris (Grand Design Award) 2016. Melo has been awarded “Newcomer of the year”!
We are very proud and grateful for the recognition – and sincerely thankful to all of you that have been following our journey to create handcrafted minimalism.
The jury statement
This year’s newcomer – Melo – is the obvious hybrid of the forests of Dalarna and soft minimalism. With design and production locally rooted, Melo offers a new and solid contribution to Swedish wood furniture manufacturing. With the use of solid ash, they blend in to any environment and create a warm feeling tied to the woods along with a sustainable elegance.
Årets nykomling Melo är den självklara hybriden av dalaskog och mjuk minimalism. Med både design och produktion lokalt rotad ger Melo den svenska trämöbeln ett nytt och gediget tillskott som i massivt askträ smyger sig in i alla miljöer, ger dem trävärme och hållbar elegans.
