It’s time for the design market à la London which is happening this weekend in Gothenburg, Friday 17 – 20, Sat & Sun 10 – 18. Here, some peeps from some of today’s personal favorites. For more info about the exhibitors check out à la London.
Things are fun, I’m back to semi-regular blogging. Under the tag #bestofgothenburg on Insta and here, I’m aiming to continue show some of my favorite Gothenburg things, people and places.
Thanks to my friend and colleague Drömma-Lotta I got my eyes on one of our town’s most interesting and good looking hotels, Hotel Eggers, which I visited today. Now this is the place where you want to stay when visiting Gothenburg, located just beside the train station. Every room is divine and has different styles. I had the opportunity to shoot in this one today. I love this wallpaper from Duro “Hudiksvalls Teater“. A wallpaper from in the early 1880s (discovered 1972 during a restoration of Hudiksvalls teater).
Hotel Eggers is one of Sweden’s oldest hotels, with parts of the property, amazingly enough, resting on the remains of Gothenburg’s old city walls from the 1600s and 1700s. The hotel opened 1894 and have had a list of prominent people and royals staying here during the years. There’s also an unique history including the artists Anders Zorn, Bruno Liljefors and Karl Nordström, who together with a bunch of other artists founded Swedish Konstnärsförbundet here at the hotel.
Amazing Gothenburg based, Swedish artist EKTA, aka Daniel Götesson 360 pages sketchbooks I-III can come true via this Kickstarter campaign.
A couple of pics from when daughter Tovalisa and I visited jewelry designer Paula Hagerskans today. Paula is a neighbor of mine in Spinneriet, Lindome. Completely self-taught she makes incredible nature inspired pieces – necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and more. Not only jewels though, but watches also now (well, kind of a jewelry that too). Neat, good looking, want-to-have-everyone-of-them watches.
Paula also organizes courses in how to make jewelry. Tovalisa had the opportunity to make a silver ring for her self today. Not only she was thrilled, but I might have to become a jewelry designer in next life.
Among the oldest schools in Gothenburg in use, is Djurgårdsskolan with the oldest part built in 1864.
The school comprises three buildings arranged around a schoolyard. One of them is this stone brick house with a wooden veranda and a splendid fish scale-slate facade. Large, smooth, flat slate pieces with amazing color variations in gray, blue, green, black and even reddish-gray.
Finally some really nice blinds. Talented pattern designer (and friend) Emma von Brömssen‘s collaboration with Sandatex was shown today at Remfabriken here in Gothenburg, what a hit!
2016′s Way out West was muddy, rainy and good! Best of the concert I visited was Kamasi Washington & Miles Mosley + Big Sean.
A splendid, urban garden centre has opened in Majorna here in Gothenburg, stuffed with good looking plants and garden accessories. This innovative place is called Växtverket and is run by Lisa & Lisa.
