STUDIO LJUNG & LJUNG, Sweden
STUDIO LJUNG & LJUNG is a Stockholm-based architecture and design studio consisting of Martin Hedenström Ljung and Greta Ljung. Their areas of expertise include architecture, interiors, furniture and object design, graphic design and education. They've created a series for Greenhouse 2014 blending traditional artisan origins with a contemporary look. The series consists of a range of lampshades and a cupboard. The whole collection shares the same traditional artisan background and attention to detail. STUDIO LJUNG & LJUNG aspires to move away from mass production towards lovingly crafted, long-lasting furniture fit for the future. Designers working on a small scale can stay in control of the entire chain and make sure everything is made according to people- and environmentally friendly principles. Stand VH02:39
Hanna Dalrot, Sweden
Hanna Dalrot is 26 years old and comes from Älvdalen in Northern Dalarna. Last spring she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Product Design from Beckmans College of Design. She is currently spending five months as a design intern at IKEA in Älmhult. She will be exhibiting her graduation project 'Textile Landscapes' at Greenhouse. 'Textile Landscapes' is a collection of textile prints inspired by scenery from her native Älvdalen. Hanna Dalrot first captures the landscape in watercolors and then translates the watercolors into digital patterns that are printed on fabric. Stand VH01:30, www.hannadalrot.se
Arctic Seaman, Finland
Arctic Seaman is created by Samuel Kallio and Wilhelmiina Kosonen. They focus on developing lifestyle concepts into everyday design. Their goal is to find solutions to support their long-term objective of building sustainable and eco-friendly housing. They have different attitudes to design. Wilhelmiina favors a more conceptual and artistic approach; Samuel adopts a more practical approach, and frequently derives his inspiration from materials and details. By challenging each other's problem-solving process, they create a platform for creative dialogue, which leads to individual and collective development. At Greenhouse they will be showcasing Gran RU – acoustic panel collage, Sand Trooper – floor lamp and Rusty – metal chairs. Stand VH02:31
Eli Gutierrez, Spain, Rui Pereira, Portugal, and Ryosuke Fukusada, Japan
Eli Gutierrez, Rui Pereira and Ryosuke Fukusada are based in Paris, Milan and Kyoto. When working together they mainly work on-line. At Greenhouse they will be exhibiting “Unexpected Composites”, consisting of their Office Box furniture concept and their Gabbia lamp collection. Office Box is a flexible, compact unit that enables the user to keep worktools handy – any time, any place. The Gabbia lamp collection focuses on mixing traditional and industrial techniques. The lamps are made in a bamboo weaver's studio in Kyoto. Stand VH03:32
