Tjugo mil norr om Stockholm


A search for the cultural identity of the region of Gävleborg on the east cost of Sweden. The research was exhibited at Kulturkiosken IDKA in Gävle, Sweden together with a modular furniture series. My interviews with designers, artists and craftsmen were presented together with material, tools and significant objects from their workshops.

The room was divided in to different zones with the group of furniture as a center, with a wooden chipboard as a room divider and back drop. The furniture was made to function as a place to gather round before or after experiencing the different parts of the exhibition.

This series of modular furniture pieces is possible to combine in different ways to create a meeting place in the center of the exhibition. The furniture was inspired by the steel and wood processing industries that is important to the region.
