August 15, 2010

Swedish designer David Ericsson has recently graduated from the Furniture Studies program at Carl Malmsten University in Stockholm. He has sent us photos of the collection he created for his final project, which he has called “Carl Malmsten made me do it.”


Description from the designer:

The aim with this work is to try to create processes and products deriving from humanist values. I have developed a humanistic design manifesto that I relate to in my work and based on it, I make wise choices from. In order to verify the work process, I have tried to answer to various philosophical choices, choice of materials, choice of cultural values and choices in life that I have as a human being.

I have choosen material that the consumer can put in his compost after end of life. All local materials nearby Stockholm. All the prototypes are in wood/linnen and natural tanned leather.
