Stockholm Design Week | The Sculptor's Residence


During Stockholm Design Week, The Sculptor’s Residence garnered well-deserved praise and attention. An incredible collaboration between Norm Architects, Menu and Dux, the uniquely curated apartment space set the scene of a home and artist atelier. Styled impeccably by Linnea Ek Blæhr, and captured by Monica Steffensen, who kindly sent me these beautiful images, I'm excited to share it with you today.    

Paying homage to the ateliers of great artists, from Picasso's Parisian hideout to Cezanne's untouched studio in Aix-en-Provence, the exhibition gave visitors a peek into the artistic process. Spread across four rooms, the scope of the installation and joining of brands allowed the creative story to unfold through a succession of inspiring spaces. 

Elegant furniture and lighting pieces designed by Norm Architects for Menu take centre stage in the the living room, including the Eave Dining Sofa and new Hashira Floor Lamp. The Plinth tables in striking Nero Marquina marble sit on top of the textural Gravel Rug by Nina Bruun.

Danish brand St. Leo created bespoke artworks and plinths for the apartment space rendered in various shades of Dolomite Plaster. The plinths were used to display sculptures by Copenhagen-based British artist Nicholas Shurey and Stockholm-based ceramic artist Sofia Tufvasson, along with ceramics by Atelier Armand. 

The Zet Storing System by Kaschkasch for Menu is effortlessly styled with an artistic array of stacked books, paper rolls and sculptural pieces. Nearby is the exquisite new Androgyne Dining Table by Danielle Siggerud for Menu.

Located inside central Stockholm's Nosh & Chow Townhouse, the interior features high ceilings with ornate detailing, large windows, stucco and stunning parquet flooring. In the bedroom, Sweden's luxury bed company Dux provided the bed and Anna Headboard, which features a simple yet striking Japanese-inspired design. 

An apartment filled with texture and interest at every turn, the home office unquestionably sets the scene for an artist's place of work. The Snaregade Table designed by Norm Architects for Menu is layered with materials, artworks, books and paintbrushes. I love the Reverse Table Lamp by Aleksandar Lazic for Menu, and the Sam Chair designed Dux. Designed by Sam Larsson in 1974 and revived by Dux in 2015, it features a beautiful deep-tufted seat in leather upholstery.
