Designer story

“Nature has always been important to me. In Norrland it is very cloudy - gray, white, light blue, with dull light and long graphic shadows. But stumps in the forest can also be buildings in the big city. Traces in the snow can be structures in a silk fabric. Nature and the urban, the organic and the sharp, the timeless and the present, the nerve and the elegance - the contrasts between these poles are fields of tension in my design. ”
