Stockholm Collection by Mario Ruiz
Being a collection of beautiful sideboards and cabinets, Stockholm is reinterpretation of contemporary furniture designs. They are not only minimalistic; they are also very elegant and stylish. Barcelona-based designer, Mario Ruiz, has designed the Stockholm collection specifically for a Spanish manufacturer, Punt.
The furniture pieces are all wood clad with fronting anodized aluminum sheet skin in gold and copper finishing. There are five pieces in the collection, all of them come in different size and height. Each piece has its own storing properties. The color of cabinets range from dark wood to pure white timber. The finishing stays the same, appearing in copper and gold.
As described by designer, Mario Ruiz, Stockholm is:
” …new kind of sophistication – in the quality and combination of materials, and in the precise styling and balanced radii.”
Mario Ruiz was born in Spain, in 1965 and has been an active designer from 1995, when he graduated from the Elisava School of Design in Barcelona. Now he is a successful designer with projects for very high standard manufacturing companies. His projects range from architecture to accessory designing. He is involved in different international projects, particularly with US, Spanish, Italian and Scandinavian companies. He has more than 40 international awards, including IF awards, Red Dot, Design Plus, Wallpaper awards 08 and Neocon awards 08.
Punt is a Spansh manufacturing company, that is involved in different kinds of projects. Punt means point. A line is a series of points following a certain direction through space. The name, Punt stands for a Point. This is a rather creative explanation of the company’s credo:
“The points from Punt that go to make up our collection are practically infinite. Many of these “punts” are happy encounters, happy discoveries; others are still searches, seeking serendipity. Some “punts” are in two dimensions (such as these graphics and communications); others are in three (such as our furniture) and others still pertain to the fourth dimension, by which we mean people: designers, clients, suppliers, friends and all the people who make this story possible through their individual efforts”.
