Archipelago House by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

I’ve been on the hunt for a bit of architecture, I think Mike Dorsey’s project brought Mr Neutra to the forefront of my mind again, I really can’t wait to see his finished documentary. Of course I could highlight another of Neutra’s beautiful designs today but I thought I’d see if any more contemporary constructions entered into this school of thought, and luckily I came across this place – the Arch …

Designs by David Ericsson

Let’s head to Sweden now on the content front, there’s a lot to admire in this part of the world, particularly when it comes to, yes you guessed it, design. I’m steering away from what you would typically expect me to be sharing today in terms of well established individuals or brands however, and instead I’ve opted to highlight an independent going it alone after homing his skills at the Carl Malmsten furniture course in Linköping. David Ericsson …

Cups 2009 – 2012 by Stefan Andersson

Coming across Stefan Andersson’s work today was deeply inspiring, the Swedish artist has an exceptional eye and has created some intriguing objects in his time. Most notably this new catalogue from a solo exhibition currently taking place in Malmö, Sweden. It’s titled ‘Cups 2009-2012’ and features a series of small cups that he made between the years 2009-2012. This small size gave him the opportunity to fixate on …

Ceramic Work by Ann Jansson

It’s not easy for me to get blown away by design work anymore, I’m extremely picky with what I like and an object has to have a real story behind it for me to be enticed. I’m sort of bucking that trend today as I don’t have much information on this talented artist but I know her name and I’m equipped with some fantastic imagery, so I’m going to to try my best to convey what I think about these pieces. Hopefully afterwards you can make …

Erik Wahlstrom photographs Jockum Nordstrom’s Studio

I thought I’d start the week with a little photography as I’ve been browsing countless photographers portfolios this weekend, it’s always nice to check back and see what everyone’s been up to. I came across Swedish photographer Erik Wahlstrom last March thanks to the collaborative project he put together for Nowness which followed chef come artist Massimo Bottura. Upon revisiting Erik’s …

In Order of Appearance Exhibition by Jackson

Have you been looking for some furniture inspiration? I have to admit we’ve been slacking on the furniture front, we barely came across anything last week and I’ve been on the lookout myself. Regular checking spots include Artek, Fritz Hansen and Carl Hansen, obviously there are multiple shops and auction sites as well, they all add into the mix. One thing I don’t see all that often though is any videos of these pieces and how they lo …

Manos, Pottery Studio by Oscar Liedgren

This post is a case of one project leading to another as we return to talented Swedish filmmaker Oscar Liegren and his latest short film which features Potter Karin Eriksson in her studio. Many of you enjoyed Oscar’s previous piece we shared on Kiki, the Japanese design store in Stockholm, so I decided to keep a close eye on the filmmaker which luckily paid dividends today. It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a pottery based film …

Sweden’s Master Potter, Berndt Friberg

It’s been a little while since I’ve found some pottery that’s really inspired me, this morning though I was lucky enough to stumble across Swedish artist Berndt Friberg. He had a few nicknames in his time but he was usually called “Hand of God” amongst other potters and his circle of friends, he was known for being a perfectionist and did not keep pieces which were not to his satisfaction. Friberg was born to a family of potters and started his …

Set of Ceramics by Maria Kristofersson

It’s hard to grumble at a little Nordic inspiration to start the week off so I’ve brought across the work of Swedish creative Maria Kristofersson as I really enjoyed browsing over her ceramic collection this weekend. Maria is often noted for her rugged yet quirky creations that hold quite an individual aesthetic. It’s evident that although Maria tends to work in conventional forms crafting bowls, plates and various vessels she does …

Short Film by Rolf Nylinder

I thought I’d throw a curve ball into the mix, as creative inspiration can come in many different shapes, sizes and forms. “Trout is all”, a short film by Rolf Nylinder, is a light hearted creation which reminds us all that taking a moment to reflect and relax upon a situation is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered. This is what I took from this candid scene that Rolf has recorded anyhow, which doubles up as a great …
