Haruka Furuyama has created a furniture collection dedicated to a house used as an atelier by Swedish painter William Nording. Nording was a central figure in the ‘vicklebyskolan’ (Vickleby school) artist community, which was known for the unique light found in Vickleby, Sweden.
“Comfortable, cozy, simple, bright and inspiring. This is how I want my work space to be. I found an almost ideal place at my previous school, Capellagården. A small house called ‘lilla ateljen’ which was used as an atelier by the painter William Nording (1884-1956)”. says Haruka Furuyama.
“I decided to create a furniture series dedicated to the house ‘lilla ateljen’ as my exam project. I designed a set of furniture for the house and carpentered three items from the series. The furniture fits well in other spaces both public and at home.”
