Clothing House av Ola Giertz och Triangel av Essem Design
The hallway is the room’s equivalent to the words hello and goodbye. It is the hallway that welcomes you and it is the hallway that welcomes you back. The hallway is thus not only a room with functionality but also a room that can make an impression. Some people are actually calling the hallway the most important room in a home — the room where the expectations are set of what is next to come. Other people only see it as a functional passageway.
At Essem Design we consider both aspects — we believe that functionality and characteristics are both equally important when it comes to the interior. Our product range consists of functional hat racks from the 1930’s and characteristic hooks from today’s prominent designers. For the environment and for the benefit of the local society, all manufacturing is located in Småland, Sweden.

Falu Rödfärg, falurodfarg.com
Most paint brands are associated with the word paint. But if you say “Falu Rödfärg”, people think of summer, sun, grandmother, strawberries, ice cream, happiness, community, freedom, weddings, funerals, midsummer, new potatoes, cream cake, summer jobs, holidays, kittens, cattle fields.... Falu Rödfärg is linked with millions of memory images, and constantly creates new possibilities for positive memories and associations.
What the brand Falu Rödfärg promises is impossible to copy. Here, there are the roots in Swedish building tradition, as well as Swedish cultural tradition. In every product that bears the Falu Rödfärg name, there is 250 years of “silent knowledge”. Knowledge of everything from how the natural pigment raw material should be treated and how the linseed oil’s quality affects the paint’s characteristics to how today’s architects motivate the choice of classic distemper and the feelings the brand evokes in people who live in Falun red houses.
We offer a brand whose qualities are determined by the human senses. Putting our “touch” on the job is an idea we take with us in everything from how we assess the colour of the burned pigment to how we treat customers and colleagues. Each of us who works in, or with, Falu Rödfärg affects the brand with our thoughts and actions.
Being able to work with “A Swedish miracle” is a benefit we have, and together, we will ensure that the era of the miracle is not past!
Folkform is the name of an art and design duo compris- ing designers Anna Holmquist and Chandra Ahlsell, both having studied at Konstfack (University College of Arts, Crafts & Design). Since starting their partnership in 2005 they have maintained a clear focus and ambition – to make use of and highlight parts of the Swedish cultural heritage. In their unique designs and furniture making, Folkform have been inspired by classic industrial materials and expressions from Masonite to brass, bronze and stone. They began with a competition entry for Masonite manufacturer Rundvik’s 75th anniversary and ended up with Folkform, a design studio now with over 10 years of experience and an impressive success record, both in Sweden and internationally
Folkform have worked with objects closely related to books and literature for some time now, one example beeing the revolving bookcases for Svenskt tenn.

Riff, Raff, Rug Divider" by the designers Magnus Skogsberg & Mimmi Smart. A unique hand-woven rag rug with golden threads and fabrics from the designers’ own clothing. Produced at Handarbetets Vänner Ateljé in Stockholm (Friends of Handicraft Studio), 2016.
"The rug is made from clothes in our own closets. The piece is a self-critical commentary on consumption, though the mix of labels on the back of the carpet has a more playful approach, from cheap to expensive, from Zara to Prada.
Handarbetets Vänner in Stockholm, founded in 1874, is a centre for education, production and development of advanced textiles and design.
