The lamps are made by layers of pine wood that are treated with hard wax and sold with a fabric chord.

The name Medinilla Magnifica is the latin name for the flower also called Rosenskärm in Swedish. The organic shapes of petal leaves was a big inspiration when designing this lamp, and since the flower Medinilla Magnifica hangs downwards just as our lamp the naming was ment to be.

VICTORIA AMAZONICA

The name Victoria Amazonica
is the latin name for the giant Water Lilies (jättenäckros). It wasn’t ment to look like a Water Lily from the beginning, but in the end it simply had become a giant Water Lily so it had to be given the name.

HISTORIC HERITAGE

The Sweep Me collection began with svepteknik, an old craft technique that can be traced all the way to ancient Egypt. Svepteknik is made by steaming thin wood chips and bending them into boxes, sieves or suitcases. It is material-saving, efficient method that creates a lightweight design with elegant expression.

Images taken at the HDK Sloyd Teacher Education in Gothenburg, where lecturer Carl Gurnell introduced us to the technicalities of svepteknik.

IN THE WORKSHOP

For us, it is important to design in a was that comes natural for the wood and that makes sense from an craft and production perspective. The Sweep Me collection is made with the highest level of craftsmanship by super skilled CAJ collective in Skarpnäck, Stockholm. CAJ collective are educated at one of Swedens top schools for furniture carpentry, Carl Malmstensskolan.
