Workshop / Chair's day

I can't say for a fact that there's such a day as Chair's day, nevertheless I was invited to participate in a workshop at the Kulturparken Småland in Växjö in order to celebrate just that day! The day was much fun! Teamed up with a good partner we made two new kind-of-chairs with material from old ones and mixed pieces from the local furniture industry. More pictures can be found here.

We also got a tour of the Åke Axelsson chair exhibition at Smålands Museum by the man himself. Åke Axelsson is a very well known Swedish chair designer and interior architecht who has been in the industry for half a century and still is. Not only did he give all the workshop participants a fine tour of his works, in a private conversation – as you can see in the last picture – he also revealed the secret of the chair!

Between me and the walls

Being all alone in my (temporary) studio only having conversations with the walls haven't driven me nuts yet... which is strange, because I'm working like a nutter! The making of scale 1:20 models has now switched to building small scenes and taking photos of the different concepts. And yes it's me behind the crayons creating "children's art" – there is a reason for everything!
