Train Station Design: The Grand Hall of Stockholm Central Station

An indoor sustainable space for The Grand Hall of Stockholm Central Station.


The Grand Hall of Stockholm Central Station goes green with the creation of an indoor waiting area that combines sustainable modernism with fin-de-siècle design.

Stockholm Central Station is the largest railway station in Sweden and apparently the most visited place in Sweden! Jernhusen, the company behind the Swedish railway stations, is not new to making sustainable choices with regards to their interior design. We wrote some time ago about a waiting lounge with a live green wall and wooden serpentine shaped benches manufactured by sustainable company Green Furniture Sweden. The collaboration between the two continues and Architect Wester + Elsner Arkitekter has provided the layout for more wooden benches, this time circular wooden benches.

A combination of Nova C Benches with backrests and without in dark oak work in harmony with the central marble fountain creating a relaxing indoor environment for commuters and travellers. Locally made, the wood is FSC certified. All glues are low-toxic and the ribs surface is finished with VOC free Rubiomonocoat hardwax oil, very durable. Marks can be retouched easily and without nasty odors on the spot. Beside the manufacturer Green Furniture Sweden plant a tree for every meter bench sold. The Nova C Bench would look great as well in a shopping mall or a company hall.

Designer Johan Berhin owner of Green Furniture Sweden says : ”Making a grand installation in this historic environment is really special! My inspiration has been from Art Noveau in continental Europe at the time when the railways made their big entrance. This is modern design, but yet I get the feeling that the benches have always  been there”.


Jernhusen (owner the Swedish railway stations) : “Green Furniture’s ability to combine sustainable design, functionality and durability within a public environment is why we chose them for Stockholm Central Station”, says Cajsa Lindgårdh, market communicator at Jernhusen. We also have good experiences of Green Furniture from one of our smaller waiting rooms at Stockholm  that they furnished in the autumn 2012, delivering very good results and high satisfaction to our travellers”.
