Consistent, elegant and progressive. Claesson Koivisto Rune (CKR) is perhaps the most internationally acclaimed Swedish architect and design studio. Even their graduation piece, a tiny Japanese house placed on the most central square in Stockholm city, hit the design world like a bomb – receiving great attention both at home and abroad.

Initially CKR was said to be minimalist. But trying to describe the company, you soon discover that the right adjective no longer applies – it's changed! CKR's work is an upwards and forwards movement, heading for something as yet undiscovered. "Without any clear direction" they've said themselves. And yet they work consistently and in the tradition of Arne Jacobsen and Alvar Aalto, with architecture, furniture design and product design that together forms an entirety.

Eero Koivisto was born in 1958, Ola Rune in 1963 and Mårten Claesson in 1970. They met studying interior architecture and founded their studio in 1995. CKR has created about ten pieces for Swedese – all with a distinctive sense of consistency, elegance and progression.
