In July I had the pleasure to visit the Kasthall factory in Kinna, outside Gothenburg, to learn about their craftsmanship and Kasthalls exquisite products. Kasthall is known for their high-quality woven and tufted carpets which are today well-known all over the world. Among many things, I especially enjoyed the “archive” and the design studio “Kasthall Atelje”. In the atelier Kasthall is not only making developments for their own range, but also for clients such as Acne Studios, Svenskt Tenn and artists all over the world.
Browsing through 1st Dibs like a crazy person, in usual order. My cravings are these at the moment; Mid-Century smoked art glass bowl by Holmegaard, abstract etching on paper by Jiri Kolar, Italian Mid-Century Chandelier (from 1960s), daybed from the 1950s by Kurt Thut, brass and agate lamp from 1970s, and Swedish rya rug in yellow, white and black.
