There is no need to question Sweden’s prolific design trio Claesson Koivisto Rune‘s flair when it comes to architecture and design (and anything in between for that matter), yet during this year’s edition of Stockholm Design Week we have discovered yet another talent of one of studio’s founders’ – Mårten Claesson’s – that of photography. As a friend of Architonic, Mårten has agreed to share his images with us and we can now present you with a selection of his skillfully composed photographs taken at an inspiring exhibition showcasing Claesson Koivisto Rune’s latest collection of colourful, ornamental tiles inspired by traditional Arabic geometric patterns.

More about the series:

 

‘We have designed three patterns – Dandelion, Stone and Casa – each of which is available in several colours. The cement tiles are handmade in Morocco with a traditional manufacturing method. The patterns are obviously inspired by classical Arabic geometry. Although created by Scandinavians.

 

‘By laying the tiles in various ways each pattern opens the opportunity to create several new different macro-patterns. Including a random factor that provides non-repetitive formations.

 

‘Complicated to describe in words. Self-evident at sight.’
