To fall head over heels in love! For Swedish Staffan Holm, great design has never been as much about practical functions as emotional ones. With so many things around us, he wants us to be affected by each additional new object. His fascination is for the poetic quality of crafts as much as for the wonders of new technology – both essential ingredients for the development of society. A fine example of his design is Spin stool for Swedese, the furniture that, to be honest, is really too complex to be produced.
Staffan Holm was born in 1977. He trained first as a carpenter and then took a Mas- ter’s degree in Design at HDK/University of Gothenburg. He worked as a furniture carpenter for four years, and since 2006 has his own studio in Gothenburg – Staffan Holm Design.
Staffan Holm has received many prizes and awards, including two for his Newton Coffee Table from Nordic Design Prize 2009 and Swedish ELLE decoration2010.
