Report from the wasteland
A building boom is under way in Sweden. In the Hagastaden area
between Stockholm and neighbouring Solna alone, some 6,000
apartments are currently being built. But the amount of waste is
massive. Writer Ylva Frid and photographer Fredrik Sweger went
looking for the debris left in the shadows of the rising skyscrapers.
100 years of finnishness
Exclusive glass and icons in abundance – but the resquad
execution image was excluded. Why? Daniel Golling looks
into Finland’s national jubilee exhibitions and finds that some
crucial facts are missing from the picture.
Heart of glass
She is the designer and glass artist who seeks decorativeness and
effectiveness, with an education from America and influences from
Italy behind her. Since then, Ann Wåhlström has continued to be
inspired by expressions far beyond traditional Swedish glass art.
Innovation, design and attention to detail. From seats like Flex
or Alya to lounge solutions like Raglan sofa – or smart tables
with connectivity. Andreu World provides high quality and
comfort for all types of office spaces.
State of the union
There’s a new sheriff in town. CEO Ewa Kumlin is leaving Svensk
Form and will be replaced by Mats Widbom. Where is this venerable
institution headed in the future? What has been done so far, and
what lies ahead? We asked a writer outside of our own circles to take
a deep and independent look at our workplace.
My name is Luca !
He grew up on the glass island of Murano and works in
Stockholm - with everyone from Salviati to Cassina and
Skultuna. Now, Luca Nichetto wants to tear down the old
barriers between design and fashion.
Everything is illuminated
At age 33, Daniel Rybakken has already had a brilliant
career, thanks to his innovative work in lighting design.
Anders Bergmark travelled to Gothenburg to visit a
designer whose future seems unusually bright.
Power saving mode
The home of the future is energy-lean and high-tech. In Stockholm’s
ambitious Smart Energy City project, residents have tried out a new,
smart energy system. But is it really so clever? As Ylva Frid explains,
there is still a long way to go before the vision becomes reality.
The house that Gudrun built
Gudrun Sjödén is the godmother of Swedish fashion. She singlehandedly
created an empire based on strong colours, patterns and
a deep knowledge of the needs of full-grown, bohemian women.
Salka Hallström Bornold took the metro to Årsta to see this
entrepreneurial force in person.
Playdate with Bjarke
The Lego House in Billund opened in September.
One balmy summer day, Johan Deurell paid a visit to
the building site and met Bjarke Ingels – the architect
who never stopped playing with Lego.
