Find a bunch of Lotta’s lovely tree posters in the shop.
Roiivar creative studio is a small design ﬁrm in Gothenburg, Sweden, dedicated to “retaining the importance of creative and sustainable solutions in product development”. Its main focus on furniture prototyping and small production series. I’m so glad to hear that things went really well for them at Milan Design Week 2014, they got a lot of well deserved attention for their new chair and table. I also like the new logo, congrats guys!
Mechanical Wood Trestle. One automatically ﬁnds the speciﬁc shapes of folding-mechanisms bound to certain types of materials, mostly metals and plastics. This can be explained by as a material reference point, the minds simultaneous involuntary enabling and disabling of earlier references. The clashing of the ﬁrstly perceived material and shape with the actual material used, in this case birch, results in an eye catching yet subtle table trestle.
The SR chair does not have the joints of your everyday chair. Each corner of the chair is squared up from top to bottom with 45 degree angles, resulting in a construction that is strong enough to allow both a slim and light-weight design. All outer angels are 90 degrees.

This kind of re-design. Stumbled on the work of Gothenburg based furniture designer Emil Roiivar the other day. Actually his studio is based in the same house where I live. Hope to be able to show you more of his work further on!
You know the amazing chairs I wrote about a couple of days ago, similar ones are to be find for sale at Bukowskis this very moment and for about 19 hours ahead (thanks for the tip Aja). Turned out that they are theatre chairs from Malmö Stadsteaters lilla scen, Intiman designed by David Helldén.
Wanted to show you a first peep of House of Rym’s new spring/summer collection for 2014. As you might know Anna Backlund and I has been House of Rym’s main designers since the company started 2011. It has been a fun and giving journey which is still not finished. For the 2014 collection House of Rym has brought in an additional designer to the crew – my colleague and friend Cecilia Pettersson! Yes the same Cecilia who made Fine Little Day Shop‘s poster The forest (also available as wallpaper) and the candy colored Polka pillow cases and kitchen towels. Cecilia has made a bunch of things for the new collection, posters, porcelain and textile. See more at the House of Rym site.
