Asshoff & Brogård Design

Good Monday morning to all my dear blog friends!

I have seen products from the Stockholm based design company Asshoff & Brogård in the past but this is the first time I have visited their website and got the whole selection.

Their own corporate description: “Asshoff & Brogård focuses on functional products that tell a story and creates a poetic and dramatic everyday scenery. A shared interest in construction and magic brings life to their works”.

Pay attention to these two prize winning designers – Johanna Asshoff and Hanna Brogård!

I like this bookshelf with an over-sized crest. Not the same old same old for sure.

Newly released are these wooden hooks inspired by flowing tears or dripping rain.

Here is an interesting product in stoneware. A dining set for 4 people designed to be stacked on top of each other when not used and turned into a sculpture. How easy to set the table! Who needs cupboards!

“The Green House” – a paper/garbage bin shaped as a house. The front porch is the pedal. When you step on it the roof opens up.

I had no idea that A&B is behind the design of Ikea’s Trollsta sideboard.

But of all their products, this got to be the most unique of them all. An office concept for funeral directors called “A Beautiful Farewell”. A complete environment dedicated to loss & memories. Interesting.

Urns for ashes.

    Monika,
    I don’t know about the funeral items but I’ll take the garbage bin any day. Nice post.

  • Oh, I love the idea of the dining set for four turning into a little sculpture of sorts – it takes up little space and it fulfills more than one function. Very sweet. And I do like how vintage and modern meet in that Trollsta sideboard. Thanks for this fun post, Monika!

  • That dining set for four is adorable and very creative. It is perfect for apartment dwellers with limited space!

    My best,

  • And this is why I can’t get enough of Swedish design! It’s so brilliant! The dishes as sculpture? Genius. And so pretty. The house trash can? The tear drop hooks? I want them all. Well, except maybe the funeral stuff(!) And I’ve been resisting that Ikea sideboard all year.
