In recent years, Swedish Wood has supported the creation of stylish and practical furniture made of sustainable Swedish pine, furniture that meets the demand of Chinese consumers.
This year at East Design Show, Swedish Wood will exhibit a number of furniture in Swedish pine designed and made by Swedish and Chinese designers. It will be a feast of Swedish furniture design and a celebration of Swedish pine, strengthening the prosperous relationship between Sweden and China.
The following designers have found inspiration in the meeting between East and West, establishing cultural exchange in the shape of design and business.
Hemmo Honkonen has made Pinustool.
Pinustool is a knock-down stool made of Swedish pine. The stool is inspired by Chinese carpentry and joinery. The design is an expression of cultural exchange between traditional Scandinavian materials and traditional Chinese craftsman techniques.
