'The Ensemble' by Helena Svensson, Karin Widmark and Josefin Hellström Olsson

The three individual Swedish designers Helena Svensson, Karin Widmark and Josefin Hellström Olsson presented ‘The Ensemble’ at the Greenhouse during this year’s Stokholm Furniture Fair. The collection was inspired by the sentimentality and percieved value of musical instruments, which becomes especially apparent in the materiality and processing of the pieces.

“By incorporating instrumental attributes, these objects echo the disregard for the instruments that in many ways have lost their status and place in our home today”, the designers explain.
