Stockholm Wood

Stockholm Wood Emma OlbersStockholm Wood

This is such a dear project I did in 2012, and I think it says a lot about me. It was exhibited  at Designgalleriet. The idea behind the project was to find out the importance of raw material. Is it possible to manufacture furniture from raw materials from Stockholm? Does the city even have raw materials like that? Would you think that for example a stool looks better if you knew which tree in particular it was made from? These were the questions I were discussing during the project Stockholm Wood where a willow, a poplar and some wool from downtown Stockholm became furniture and later an exhibition.
