I had the honour of doing the Trend exhibition at Stockholm Furniture Fair earlier this year and today it was released that my dear friends and collegues at Christian Halleröd Design will do the next one at SFF 2018, I couldn’t think of a better choice and I can’t wait to see the result. The exhibition will be called EN-AW 6082 which is the name of an aluminum alloy that is suitable for welding and can be anodized.
I love the work of Paris based designer Francesco Balzano so I was more than happy to see that the Stockholm store Perspective now features his work in their brand new webshop. These images are from one of my personal favorites, his Primitive collection in collaboration with Valeriane Lazard.
I love magazines and especially the ones with nice covers, this is one of my all time favorite covers by photographer Dennis Stenild. Now you can buy it as a print in my dear friend Sofia Erikssons webbshop, No Need For A Name.
The Lausanne based design studio Notter+ Vigne has designed this new book based on work by artist Carol Rama and furnitures by Rick Owens that has been presented on the previous exhibition at Museum of Modern art in Paris. Read more here.
Today I have signed contracts and hired two amazing talents to join Lotta Agaton Interiors.
Marie Ramse has been working for over 15 years with property developments and interior design projects and she will join Lotta Agaton Interiors on the 1 st of December as a full time project leader and interior designer.
Pella Hedeby has been working for over 10 years with property developments and interior design projects, Pella is also one of Swedens leading stylists and she will be joining Lotta Agaton Interiors as a full time interior designer and stylist from the 1 st of december.
I feel so happy and proud to have them joining my team and I can’t wait for them to start..and for Lotta Agaton Interiors to get the capacity to take on some more both smaller and larger scale interior projects!
Åkerlundska villan is one of my latest interior projects, it is a 1800th century beautiful castle like mansion by the waterfront just outside Stockholm that will be transformed into 9 apartments by BTH Bostad. I have had the privilege of developing the total interior concepts, kitchens and bathrooms with very free hands for all the apartments. Ruxandra Halleröd at Christian Halleröd Design and Helene Amundsen has done the architecture and I must say that this has been a dream project where we have all really been able to fulfill our visions and pay attention to details..and as for the result I totally want to move in in any of the apartments. You can read all about the project in the latest issue of Residence magazine, pictures by Pia Ulin and renderings by Pixelvalley.
This year I have been working a lot with interior concepts for new build property developments. Last out is two interior concepts for 90 new apartments to be built at Karlbergsvägen 77-79 in Stockholm by Patriam where I have chosen all the interiors – kitchen, bathrooms, wallcolours, floors, materials etc together with Semrén & Månsson architects, here are my mooboards for these projects photographed by Kristofer Johnsson. See the images (renderings) from the project in my portfolio.
This Might Be The Place is the brand new book by my dear friend and colleague Pia Ulin where she has documented all her 26 homes and signature wear throughout her life, it is all so personal and beautiful and designed to perfection by The Studio. It will be sold in a very limited edition at Papercut. Don’t miss out!
As I have mentioned briefly I am setting up Lotta Agaton Interiors later this fall. I will be working just like before with photoshoots and styling but I have also finally decided to take on some more interior projects.
I have been working quite a lot with selected Interior projects for both residential and commercial spaces over the years but now I am setting up a studio (in my new space at Kungsholmsstrand) with a new team of people to be able to take on more and larger projects. (I am overwhelmed by the response and have received so many job applications I can hardly handle them all, so if you have applied, please bare with me).
We will be doing both large and small scale interior projects and everything from private residences to public spaces and interior concepts for new build developments.
I can’t wait to get it all started with my new upcoming super-team so if you have an exciting interior project in the pipeline please don’t hesitate to contact us for an unconditionally meeting.
In Antwerp I had the privilege of visiting Belgian designer and antiquarian Axel Vervoordts studio and private exhibition. It is located in the surroundings of Kaanal just outside Antwerp where Vervoordt has transformed an old distillery and malting complex to the most amazing housing project and this is also the destination of his own studio and 4 floors high art and furniture collection that was overwhealmingly beautiful. Thank you so much team Vervoordt for your hospitality and for showing us around!
I kicked off my vacation this year with a Weekend in Antwerp and I must say that I don’t think I have ever gotten so much inspiration in such a short amount of time. One of my favourite places was Graanmarkt 13. I have written about several times before but it is worth a new post. Graanmarkt 13 is a lifestyle store with a very handpicked selection of fashion and interiors, a restaurant and an apartment designed by Vincent van Duysen that used to belong to the owners Tom and Ilse but is now a hotel room.
