Hot on the Highstreet Week 231

As I get older I look more and more at interiors, I see irresistible wallpaper, sofas, and design features that I want to have in my home with me. Stockholm is one of my favourite cities for attractive homeware, and at the moment there is a surge in interest for Scandi design.

Bxxlght, a design company that creates light boxes in plexiglas with different led light techniques. The company was founded in 2013 by Daniela Upmark in Stockholm, Sweden. Bxxlght is not just a simple product. The light box is a design product, an artwork and at the same time is a stylish disguised lamp. The performance of the light boxes can vary; you could have it standing on the floor, on a bookshelf or place it on the wall.

Upmark came up with the idea in New York in 2011 and the cool product definitely has that ‘Brooklyn look’. She felt something was missing in the Swedish design market, especially at a time when home decor with personal creative touches was so popular. She says: “I wanted to find art that stood out and that did not have to cost as much as an art work from a gallery or from exclusive auctions. For each season we will let a creator interpret a light box, which will be available as a limited edition”, says Daniela Upmark, CEO and designer for Bxxlght.

Buy one of the shop made products with slogans such as ‘You had me at Hello’ and ‘Welcome to Paradise’ (Regular 510 euros 90 x 70 x 13 cm or Small 410 euros 70 x 50 x 13 cm) or design your own to add light and creativity to your home!

Retailers in the UK include Holly’s Home and Astella Hrela. Or check out the Bxxlght website here.
