The advantage of curating a sequence of exhibitions is that you can learn from one exhibition and apply it to the next. Last year, Form Us With Love utilised their Greenhouse design at Stockholm Furniture & Light fair as a platform for dialogue. This resulted in an unpleasant discovery, unveiling that the perceived gap between the students and the industry was larger than anticipated. The concept of next years exhibition has therefore taken a new but deeper route into the realm of cultivation, creating a mentorship scheme.
Historically, the relationship between the mentors and adepts always played a key role amongst artisans. It is precisely this bond, that next years Greenhouse will revisit. Simply, supporting the industry from the bottom up, using small means such as biannual meetings, regular email correspondence and strategic guidance.
FUWL trusts Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair to design the space in order to focus their efforts on fostering the mentorship program.
We went from big to small and big again. We held onto this idea of a high sofa and armchair collection. We sketched endlessly and forced through iterations, to move fast into CAD models and physical mock-ups. The idea was the design and shape be capable of creating an impact yet be comfortable and inviting. A rounded seat typically brings character. Using a straight line in this case changes everything for the worse; too hard as a silhouette.Read more

Punāh is an initiative by one of India’s major manufacturing conglomerates,
Godrej and Boyce, focusing on re-thinking the use of industrial waste materials. This year, Form Us With Love was invited to Mumbai as curators, designing the first ever Punāh exhibition, shown at the London Design Festival Sept 2016.
Gottsunda is a civic concept created for a municipality of Uppsala, just to the north of Stockholm; and was part of Santa & Cole’s range.
At a glance the piece seems harsh and unfriendlRe: FUWL books 160113, mail 1 of 2.y, yet there’s a visual warmth and realism to using moulded concrete. It’s a material we’ve all seen so it gives off a familiarity and durability of course, which a piece for public areas requires.
Building a box should be easy. Four sides, a top perhaps. Corners. However, as a studio, we do tend to sweat the small stuff. As a result, it took many CAD drawings to find the quality we were looking for when designing Greenhouse 2016 and its simple box-like stands for the exhibitors.Read more
In Fall 2016, Form Us With Love in collaboration with TID watches has brought an anticipated newcomer into the TID watch range, TID No1 Gold. This matt gold coloured watch, keeps the simplistic industrial look, but adds a pleasant component to the family, a somewhat affectionate take on No.1 steel. Crafted in the same elegant manner, No1 […]Read more
