Claesson Koivisto Rune
The trio of architect-designers (Claesson, Koivisto and Rune) is ubiquitous in Sweden. They have just designed the Residence of the Swedish Ambassador in Berlin (Germany). The chosen three young designers had to produce an innovative concept defined by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs: an elegant but unpretentious Swedish design - intelligent but not intellectual. The tones are soft: grey, blue, cappuccino - in reference to core Sweden - the floors are pale and the materials are in chestnut to contrast with the famous Scandinavian blondness.
