Peri Lamp is a lamp at the meeting point between indirect lighting and new technology. A circular armature casts light upon a reflector that then spreads indirect and glarefree light down to a table top or space.

Beak Shelf is a knock-down shelving system for public or private spaces. Beak utilises the flexible properties of beech wood in a disassemblable joint which is easy and satisfying to use, taking the knockdown experience to a new level. The aprons are simply clicked on to the sides and secured in place with wingnuts. The project is a collaboration with fellow designer Hemmo Honkonen.

Snowshoe Chair. This project started out as material investigations to find new materials and techniques for sitting surfaces. The findings, through their inate properties, then gave rise to the specific typology of the Snow Shoe Chair.
        By cutting patterns into a surface it is possible to manipulate how the same same material stretches and gives. In this case, how a membrane accommodates a body lying down. The result is a reclining chair made of a vegetable-tanned leather membrane over a frame in solid ash wood.

Svartskär. This project investigates potential use of flotsam rope. Everything between trawling nets and cut-off anchor cables can be found on beaches all across the globe.
        Polypropene is the most common plastic in this context and it decomposes quickly when exposed to the sun leaving small bits of plastic which are released into the environment. Biologists have clearly shown that it affects marine life negatively, but one doesn't know exactly how and to what extent. To clean up beaches often end up on the shoulders of local people.
        During the process I investigated different techniques and their implementation in furniture. This investigation led me to grafting, commonly used to cover fragile objects for decoration or protection onboard traditional sailing ships. The rope I used comes from the shores of Kosterhavet, Swedens only marine national park.

        The project was exhibited at the Swedish Presence exhibition, in La Pelota, Furniture Fair in Milan 2014.
