What is Swedish?
Now that almost everything is produced abroad, is there something we do best, and also have the material for right here in Sweden?
A contemporary piece of furniture using an old Swedish craftmanship; the weaving of birch bark. The seat is made like an oversized birch bark basket, but it’s not finished, the birch bark is left half weaved. And reveals the brighter side of the bark wich usually is hidden. This goes against the ”rules” of the craftsmanship, and questions the traditions, maybe the crafts need to re-new the thinking and making to not die out? Can the craft and furniture design be combined to create something new?
