'Shelf Lamp' by Andreas Engesvik for David Design

The Norwegian designer and guest professor at Stockholm’s Konstfack university Andreas Engesvik has recently realised this pared-down, ‘low tech’ lamp for the Swedish furniture and fashion brand David Design.

John Astbury, Bengt Brümmer and Karin Wallenbeck are students of the renowned “Konstfack” University College of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm. Their work plays with the idea of kinetic energy: the user’s interaction with the products transforms the objects’ shapes through an intriguing set of mechanical effects.

Swedish Marcus Abrahamsson and Kristoffer Fagerström about their latest project at the Institution of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm: “On the basis of our new professional role as interior architects and furniture designers, in our degree project we have taken on Konstfacks outdoor café. The project has been an opportunity to work on this location as a whole and to design a series of site specific items of outdoor furniture.

How to communicate Konstfack's inner soul in its external space?

How to communicate Konstfack's inner soul in its external space?

The current concrete floor, which is part of the main entrance to Konstfack, has been converted from a windy no mans land to a well kept and pleasant outdoor café. Through clear choices of materials and generous design we have made it into a place for relaxation and spending time together in the sun. No pretentions, just a nice lunch in pleasant company.

With the aim of creating an interdisciplinary space, we have created a framework that lets the space react to influences and allows it to change over time. In the future when the wood content of this framework is worn out it is up to the current students to decide the content. By this we hope that the space will develop into a collage of materials. We are leaving something behind us that not only represents us and Konstfack at present but can also represent Konstfack in the future…”
