I’ve always been interested in companies that know their craft and the materials they use. Companies with history...with a story. And that is exactly what Konsthantverk has. I want to add my own DNA...to give the story new layers. A softer look, maybe a bit more poetic.
For me, design is about problem-solving, whether the foundation is industrial or artistic. Figuring out how to make a product...that’s what I love. It’s fun to work with someone who knows craftsmanship. A real industry with genuine expertise...with tradition.
I want to create designs that move people, that say something. The coupling of rawness with “nobility”. You should see and feel the construction of what I make. I’m so close to Konsthantverk...I feel touched. It is closeness in every sense: made up close, close to people...close to the earth.
Materials are essential vehicles of emotion in the design process for me. I want to create designs that convey a sense of emotion – both through function and appearance. Konsthantverk is incredibly sensitive to how the process unfolds.
I love being on location...in the factory. I can see how the products are cut, bent, soldered and “weighed in”...how they’re balanced. That knowledge is absolutely crucial for my ideas. I am so delighted that Konsthantverk makes products themselves. That someone can still “touch everything” here in Sweden.
