The long table is awarded in the Monocle Design Awards

Nolas Långbordet on Hamntorget in Stockholm has won the Monocle Design Awards in the category Best Public Furniture. White Arkitekter has received the international design award for the design of Hamntorget, a previously undefined place that has now been given new life through contemporary architecture and urban design. The place is designed by landscape architects Cecilia Jarlöv and Josefin Norén Almén from White Arkitekter, with lighting design by Clara Fraenkel, White.

– We are happy for White Arkitekter who won the prestigious Monocle Design Award for the project on Hamntorget where we delivered a wonderful combination of the Long Table, says Agneta Stake, Nola’s founder.

The long table was originally developed by White Arkitekter and the artist Ebba Matz for a socially vulnerable place in Helsingborg, where it also became part of the solution for how people could meet in new ways. Even at Hamntorget, the furniture contributes to creating a social meeting place.

The Monocle Design Awards cover the design field with the goal of highlighting how design can improve the quality of life for people. Great effort has been put into research and interviews with designers and architects from all corners of the world to find the best the industry has to offer right now.

The long table is a modular furniture system in Nola’s range, which can be adapted to be placed and installed in a variety of ways and types of places.
