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.
Siri Haller, designer and Victor af Wellerstedt, carpenter, have created The Sauna Seat. It is inspired from the Finnish sauna culture and Japanese Onsen bathing facilities.
The chair expresses bare wood, balance, calm, stability and invites relaxation and contemplation for body and soul, alone or together with someone.
Siri Haller designed the Sauna Seat to capture the feeling of a sauna and a cleansing bath, to welcome a drowsy body and enable a present mind.
