Fogia's showroom sits inside a 19th-century steam engine workshop

Code Concept subtly overhauled this old steam engine shop just outside Stockholm to create a showroom for Swedish furniture brand Fogia, adding a series of deconstructable display fixtures to its interiors.

Located in the municipality of Nacka beside an inlet of the Baltic Sea, the Fogia showroom features a handful of original features that hint at its industrial past.

The frames – which are crafted from steel to mimic the exposed metal beams above – are used to create living room-style set-ups, showcasing the brand's sofas, side tables, and rugs.

Certain pieces, like armchairs, are placed in front of moveable coloured partitions.

"They enable us to style environments without having to break down a permanent installation twice a year, which goes against our belief of using materials wisely and consciously," added Richard Prime from Fogia.

Freestanding black podiums have been dotted throughout the space, displaying smaller home accessories like glass vases. Throw cushions are also stuffed into tall shelving units.

At the rear of the store is also a small cafe that serves drinks and snacks to browsing visitors.

During this year's Stockholm Design Week, Fogia hosted a dinner at the showroom to unveil their 2019 collection. Its preceding range had been inspired by the 1970s, featuring rich colours, curved shapes, and heavy fabrics.

The design week also saw Färg & Blanche set up an installation inside a centuries-old family home, and Note Design Studio create artificial snow dunes on top of the At Six hotel.
