Stockholm, February 2019

This final Sweden post is laughably late. Nothing like looking at a snowy wonderland when you are anticipating the arrival of spring flowers. Alas, we arrived in Stockholm to a beautiful scene. Our go to accommodation is Hotel Skeppsholmen. It's quiet, picturesque and has a nice restaurant. The rooms are comfortable and spacious as well. We enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle.

One highlight during design week was Luca Nichetto's collaboration with Svenskt Tenn.  Heritage uses Josef Frank's Terrazzo motif as the inspiration for a collection of Murano glass lamps. Read more about it via Svenkst Tenn's website.

At night they have this amazing glow and float in the darkness.

We highly recommend a visit to the Svenskt Tenn tea room. We were there to conduct an interview for our next Mjölk book, and were treated to a surprise breakfast that included yogurt, an open face sandwich and tea/coffee.

&tradition news: Loafer dining chair and sofa, Mezcla table series, Copenhagen wall sconce.

Another visit with Ingegerd Råman at her Stockholm studio, in preparation for our upcoming exhibition later in the year. 

A sad I Was Here photo outside of the newish CSA Carina Seth Andersson shop in Södermalm. Unfortunately we didn't check the hours first and it was Wednesday.

A quick stop to Dry Studios, to visit again with Frama but also to check out the Transparent Speaker.

ooking forward to getting this ceramic version of the speaker for the shop.

Limited edition handcrafted by Hortense Montarnal in Lyon. 

Dry Studios collaborated on a wood version, and we have the original Transparent Speaker available in the shop.

We have some of the long Dry Studios x Frama cutting boards in stock, as well as the apothecary soaps and a rivet round table and triangolo chair. 

We headed over to Sibyllegatan to hit up Modernity and Jacksons, who was also having an exhibition. IWATEMO has emerged out of the collaboration between the manufacturing techniques of Iwate and Finnish design. The collection consists of three items created collaboratively by craftsmen in Iwate and the two Finnish designers, Ville Kokkonen and Harri Koskinen: Kettles from Nambu Tekki Ironware, Wooden Chairs, and Porcelain.

Of course this is right up our alley.

And finally, finishing off the trip is a visit to Matbaren for some langoustines and this super cute little sausage (possibly reindeer, definitely delicious).
