FlipFlop – The ledge for clothes and paintings.

Design WIS Design.
WIS Design = Lisa Widén and Anna Wallin Irinarchos.

Lisa and Anna met when they were both studying Product Design at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, and since 2006 they have run WIS Design as designers and interior architects. They want their designs to be easy to love and easy to place in homes and public spaces. Their pieces should add extra finesse, have a content, surprise people and make them think – adding a kind of everyday romance. FlipFlop can be used as a decorative hook rack and as a display rack
for magazines, brochures or pictures. Use just one in its own, or place several side by side to form a long, decorative border on the wall. It’s simplicity itself to change the look of the rack by flipping the hooks up or down. FlipFlop comes
with three, six or 14 hooks, in black or snow-white.



SIDEbySIDE – The burned birch bench.

Design Filip Svensson.

Filip grew up in Stockholm and lives there today. He completed his studies in Product Design at Beckmans College of Design in 2007. He now runs his own company, which is involved in design, events, interior architecture and product
design. Filip works with a keen interest in the requirements of projects – the idea of
the concept, the boundaries this creates and the properties of the materials used. The choice of materials in itself can create specific solutions. SIDEbySIDE is a stave-glued bench in an eye-catching combination of birch and burned birch with contoured seats that create a highly distinctive pattern. The bench is available as a 2-seat model, or in flexible modular form with starter, add-on and end modules.
SIDEbySIDE is ideal in corridors, waiting rooms, foyers, lobbies, receptions, art galleries, museums – Everywhere, in fact, where there’s a need for a bench with a striking design that doesn’t  detract from the sensation of space.



Yes – The teeny weeny wooden chair.

Design Victor Alm.

Victor has been working as a freelance furniture designer and interior architect in the Brikolör Design Group since 2008. Victor completed his MA in Design, MFA, at the HDK School of Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg in 2006. His philosophy is: “To have respect for the Scandinavian furniture tradition and create high quality furniture with a lasting emotional value – furniture that has the potential to be handed down through the generations, instead of being traded in for current trends”. Yes is a slender, lightweight wooden chair with a compression moulded seat shell and a unique leg construction. Yes is available with or without a covered seat or covered seat and back, in a choice of oak, birch or finished in one of four standard stains (black, white, brown and red-brown). Link fittings are available as optional accessories.


Stow – The remote control adapted media bench, drawer and cabinet.

Design Patrik Hansson.

Patrik lives in Uppsala, where he works as a graphic designer and furniture designer in his own company, Phorm. “I am more or less self-taught in both disciplines,” he says. “It’s a mix that suits me fine. I’m fascinated by the way graphic design inspires furniture design.” Patrik created the Stow storage series after pondering the question of how to use a remote control to operate electronic
equipment in the living room without constantly having to open cabinet doors. He solved the problem by designing a bold, generously proportioned handle with hidden grooves. This enables the use of a remote control when it would otherwise seem impossible.




Ridå – The silence display stand.

Design Joel Karlsson, Krook & Tjäder.

Joel was born and grew up in Gothenburg. He trained in Interior Architecture and
Furniture Design at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and has also studied Architecture at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and at Parsons School of Design in New York. Today he works as Head of Design at Krook & Tjäder Design in Gothenburg. Ridå is a magazine rack, a brochure stand, a mirror, a writing board – or a combination of all these functions. Ridå contributes to creating a cosy feeling with its pockets in pressed felt – light grey or anthracite – that helps to absorb and reduce background noise. The magazines or brochures peep out from behind the textile panels like faces from behind a curtain . All back panels are magnetic.
