+Halle – Fair Stand

Today, members of the contract design industry often source upholstery fabrics for sofas and chairs through the sometimes process of picking colours from a screen.

Greenhouse 2017

The advantage of curating a sequence of exhibitions is that you can learn from one exhibition and apply it to the next.

DN “Why only English text when the majority speaks Swedish?”

This morning we had the pleasure of reading Lotta Jonson’s article “Why only English text when the majority speaks Swedish?” featured in Dagens Nyheter.

We are proud of the fact that Jonson is mentioning Form Us With Love alongside great institutions, such as the Nationalmuseum and Modern Museet. She argues that books and exhibition texts by Swedish brands and Institutions written in English are excluding and elitist. Is it not the other way around?

Almeria

At the end of 2011 we travelled to Almeria in Spain with Cosentino’s Swedish CEO, Pierre. The brand wanted to use design to secure its position as a premium kitchen name. We checked into the brand’s own hotel and travelled onwards to the factory, a vast 1-million sqm production facility that needed a bus to get around. We saw a brand film, spent time at the futuristic company offices. It was a really immersive experience but it felt polarised against the company’s products and ways of working.

Warm Bench

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.

IKEA – Odger

After a domestic chair for public use and a tech dining chair we dived headfirst into the realm of wood-polypropylene, initially started by product developer Åsa Hederberg back in 2014. Odger is an exciting, two-part chair—now at its very final but most important, qualifying stage.

Hong Kong

We asked Ben about his experience in Hong Kong and he replied, “It is what it is! In Hong Kong there is a culture of starting production and going from there. “In Europe you talk about projects that might not happen. In Hong Kong people are doing projects and hardly ever talking about them.” So, it is easier to make things here? “Yeah, everything’s just there close by. It is much easier to have a conversation with the right people and start production; talk to different manufacturers, ask around town.

Österbymo

When we first moved offices in 2011, we were searching for new places to have lunch. One we tried was Bonniers gallery, just down the road (bit of a trek though). While we were there we looked up and looked at the ceiling (a good design tip to look up and down every now and then). The ceiling was like the one we had at school when we were young. But here though, it looked really good somehow. Still not sure why actually, might have been that were were fuelled positive energy after moving into our new space? So we looked up who made this ceiling when we finished our lunch as it was in Sweden in a place called Österby.

Greenhouse

Functional content rather than face value aesthetics. Form Us With Love’s 2016 Greenhouse concept is based firmly on substance, playing down the caricature ‘comic book’ visuals of the years before it.

Greenhouse

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.

B.I.O

Back while we were in college, John and I had this naive ambition to challenge IKEA with the world’s flattest packet. It was actually a really well thought through project with the name Bendable Interior Objects, which later morphed into the beginnings of Form Us With Love. The package was about as big as a […]

Nest Collection

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.

Greenhouse

Qualifying the success of Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair’s 2016 Greenhouse is ambiguous. As it’s not like anything else that’s been before it. One can take an aesthetic standpoint, which is what usually happens.

Greenhouse

The future designer is one whose work is aimed at change. It’s not a choice, given the state of our planet and how we as people have instigated its spiralling decline. In part designers are to blame of course, as is anyone who’s contributed to the act of consume and discard.

Water Faucet

You try to locate the sensors, looking for those dark coloured lenses usually placed in the stem of the faucets. But you can’t see anything! It’s ‘minimalism’. You place your hands a wide as you can, moving frantically to try to maximise the chance for a reflection to hit the sensor—it still doesn’t work.

Tranås

We were in Mitab’s factory in Tranås and were impressed by the welding robots. Marcus, who was in charge of the factory told us that they didn’t really do so much with them at that point in time. They’d been used in the past to weld shopping baskets, but there wasn’t so much demand of that anymore. Poor robots eh. No jobs anywhere. Humans coming in and taking their jobs…

Janinge Cycle times

If we envisage a chair in a restaurant environment, that chair will see action from ten sets of bums. Ten bums on one seat. And that bum will raise from that seat, what, five times. Up and down. So, 50 cycles a day. Probably 300 times during a year, that chair will see new rumps. […]

Education

When we started out we were lucky in a way. Our early career featured a handful of ‘mentors’ who honed our business nous and made us more worldy wise. We learned that a studio needs to practical business skills to balance against creative assets. Perhaps the 90s and 00s were decades where business thinking was transferred more easily between peers, or that our lecturers were as keen for us to develop them as they were our design thinking.

Highway Production

Our first chair project, was called Highway—a collaboration with the brothers at Mitab.
