(Sweden) Born in 1977, Staffan Holm is a swedish designer who established his interior architecture, industrial design and furniture design studio in Gothenburg. « My fascination has always been about the poetry of crafts as well as of the wonders of new technology since they are both essential ingredients for the development of society. For me, really great design have never been all about the practical functions, but more about the emotional ones, more about commitment and attachment. Art or design? Well, does it really matter? All I know is that mass produced artifacts seldom really get the chance to root in our lives before new ones take their place. We need get attached and fall in love, head over heels. I work with some of the best craftsmen in Sweden to meet the demands of my mission. My mission is to create design with more of the human qualities, that is: God, evil, emotion, humor, and a sense of a life of its own. »
SPIN stool, Swedese
Winner of the « Furniture of the Year Award », Sköna Hem magazine (2011)
The Spin stool is the result of a collaboration together with Swedish company Swedese. Spin is a stackable lightweight stool that stacks in a spiral for as high as you dare. The laminated veneer legs are bent in two directions.
Often there is inspiration to be found in objects created for practical use, which became beautiful or interesting by coincidence. This stool is inspired by so called ”Duc d’Albe’s”,old anchoring tripods hammered into the bottom of the harbor and these days mostly popular social spots for the seagull community.
