B · What’s your favourite part of the design process?
It´s when we find a new technique, when we make new experiment that can turn up really surprising. Because then you know that you have some exiting moment in front of you. And also the moment when we take the pictures of our product, because its the first time you see and can communicate your creation and idea for real.
C · Please tell us more about your art and design background and what made you become an artist and designer?
Emma- My mother is a painter, she is actually one of the people sharing the atelier with us. I have been focusing on art since early years in school, and i have made 3 years of design and interior design in France and also been a art teacher in India.
Fredrik- My background is in craft, I’m an educated fine cabinet maker and I also have a master of fine art and design. My design interest have grown on me gradually until one day it became my natural day life, and I have always been in-between choosing going into school of fashion or design. For finally choose design.
D · Where do you get inspiration?
The F-A-B chair series is based on the idea of the chair acting as a body. The chair can be used nude and bare, but also reveal a whole new personality when dressed in something a little bit more extravagant, thus functioning as a load-bearing structure for textile creations. We are going to exhibit them in Milan in April in an exhibition called “New Makers and Doers” at superstudio piú. we are also going to exhibit a unique edition of the Succession serie at Fabrica del Vapore during the fair in milan too.
