Tio Gruppen Stockholm

leave a comment »

Tio Gruppen is a name synonymous with Swedish design. The design collective, founded in 1970 by ten young textile artists and designers, has produced more than 600 printed fabrics and wallpapers. With a classic Scnadinavian aesthetic, Tio Gruppen designs incorporate simple and natural designs in a style that manages to be both contemporary and classic.

The Tio Gruppen store, located in Södermalm in Stockholm, is a design lover’s paradise, the walls covered with colorful prints in the form of bags, napkins, aprons and textiles by the yard. Always a favorite stop of mine when in the Swedish captial… very much worth a visit! And if you can’t make a quick Scandinavian jaunt, take a peek at the website.

New Josef Frank Textile Designs from Svenskt Tenn

leave a comment »

josef frank new designs

Svenskt Tenn might be one of the most influential design stores in Sweden, a well-known lifestyle company and boutique that’s been around since 1924. Founded by designer Josef Frank, his prints have been synonymous with the shop, and even though he died in 1967, his design legacy lives on. The store just recently released two new Frank prints, called Aramal and Ceylong, produced in the 40s but that have up until now never been in production; Svensk Tenn actually owns about 160 different Frank textile prints that are archived and released at random. The new prints are available on 100% linen textiles sold by the yard.

Makes me wish I was able to take a stroll down Strandvägen and take a look.

Guerilla Knitting, Cycle Style

guerilla knitting

Came across this on my last trip to Stockholm. There are several guerilla knitting groups in Sweden and in the US — it’s a popular form of eco-graffiti — and I always love finding their pieces hidden in the urban landscape.

Stockholm in Pictures

September 2009 502

Surrounded by water and nature and flavored with old cobblestone streets and classic architecture, Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Or at least I think so.

Here’s a little gallery pulled together from my last trip:
