Ateljé lyktan – Milan
Exploring ateljé Lyktans new pendant light engine
At the core of the new pendant Riff, designed by Olle Lundberg, is a light engine that easily can be used to create a myriad of different designs. The inspiration for the light engine came from the car industry and how different models and designs share the same platform.
For Milan, ateljé Lyktan invited eight architects, designers, craftsmen and –women, as well as ateljé Lyktans own Atelier, to explore the Riff light engine and create their own unique pendant. The project, named Riff Relay, resulted in nine spectacular pendants ranging from a glass pineapple to a leather hat. Each pendant from the Riff Relay will be manufactured in a limited edition of ten each.

With the support of Växjö Konsthall, six cultural workers from different disciplines were invited to together produce art works in nature. Participants were Johanna gustafsson Fürst, artist; Fredrik Paulsen, furniture designer; Caroline Ringskog Ferrada-Noli, author and TV producer; Markus Vallien, wood worker; Jonas Williamsson, graphic designer; and lisa Torell, artist.

LAST XMAS pop up store on saturday 29 november between 12-18 at Ögruppen, Jakopsdalsvägen 15a
(Swedish: freight, burden, vice)
A collaboration between Åsa Jungnelius, Gustaf Nordenskiöld and Fredrik Paulsen
As long as there is water to drink, there will be cups to drink from. But the variation in form these cups can take is virtually limitless. In today’s globalized world, how can we produce products of flesh and blood? Products made with care, that are built to be used for a long time? Can artists and designers circumvent the corporate hierarchy of mass production and instead manufacture objects themselves?
The concept behind LAST is simple: purchase an object directly from its maker. No intermediaries, long journeys, questionable materials or sweatshop labour. All of the products in the LAST collection are handmade by the artist in his or her studio.
LAST is a pop-up experience, a shop that can appear anywhere, be it an interior design shop, a gallery, online, or outdoors. It’s a traveling design experience.
The LAST line is comprised of customized, one-of-a-kind pieces that collectively suggest integrity and the ability to last a long time. Not only are the products sustainable, but they work together to promote design that is slower, more personal, and more thoughtful. A LAST that will last.

In to the woods
Glass is a moving mass
Glass is a moving mass, (2014-) is the working title of a residency-project, initiated together with five artists: Johanna Gustavsson Fürst, Åsa Jungnelius, Caroline Mårtensson, Eva Arnqvist och Malin Pettersson Öberg, starting with its point of departure in “Glasriket”, with its geopolitical and socioeconomic boundary, located and embedded in a region in the south of Sweden, famously known for its art and glass industry. With the project we will take interest in the specific interrelation between art and industrial production, design and craftsmanship. Glass is a moving mass, asks questions of what it means to be human and deal with the loss of a job: the legacy of a body of work as well as the new arriving situation with the crisis of outsourcing of industrial products and the dependency on industrial turism. Through the project, and individual works, we will document and explore the heritage of the handy craft tradition, find new ways of archiving, and engage in activities of community building. The project is conducted in collaboration with Kalmar Konstmuseum and The Glass Factory. (More info coming up later.)
Glas är massa i rörelse (2014-), är arbetstiteln på ett samarbetes- och arbetsvistelse-projekt initierat tillsammans med: Johanna Gustavsson Fürst, Åsa Jungnelius, Caroline Mårtensson, Eva Arnqvist och Malin Pettersson Öberg som tar sin utgångspunkt i ”Glasriket” och dess geopolitiska och socioekonomiska inramning beläget och inbäddat i en region i södra Sverige som är välkänd för sin konst- och glasindustri. Med projektet kommer vi intressera oss för relationerna mellan konst och industriell produktion, design, och hantverksmannaskap.Glas är massa i rörelse ställer frågor kring vad det innebär att vara människa och hantera förlusten av ett arbete: kring arvet efter industrin såväl som den annalkande situationen med outsourcingens kris och beroendet av industriell turism. Genom projektet, och individuella verk, kommer vi dokumentera och utforska arvet efter hantverkstraditionen, hitta nya sätt att dokumentera och arkivera, och engagera oss i samhälls- och gemenskapsbyggande. Projektet genomförs i samarbete med Kalmar Konstmuseum och The Glass Factory. ( Mer info kommer senare.)
