Colour, patterns and a simple and graphic expression. Danish Christine Schwarzer’s goal for her design is “to make the world a little more beautiful, more fun, happier and more playful”. As for instance with her table Flower that, with its soft and natural form, is destined to become a modern classic.
Christine Schwarzer was born in Copenhagen in 1970, and trained as a furniture and industrial designer in Copenhagen and in Helsinki. After graduating in 1999 she has been designing furniture and products from her studio in Copenhagen – apart from a year spent designing in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for a Danish furniture company.
She also designs furniture for children together with her partner Anne Birgitte Balle for their company RoomMate. Schwarzer has participated in several exhibitions in Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. RoomMate has won the Design Plus Award.
Many modernist architects were universal designers with not only a clear understanding of designing houses, but also the interior, the furniture and almost the clothes the owners might wear. Swedese's founder, Yngve Ekström, was no exception. Together with names including Alvar Aalto, Bruno Mathsson, Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjaerholm, Yngve Ekström was at the core of a generation of designers who made the concept "Scandinavian Modern" famous all over the world. With a keen eye, he designed Swedese's furniture, he designed together with L + M Architects also the head office building, logo, catalogues and personalised Christmas cards including their own poems. And so on.
The most well known design of Yngve Ekström's extensive portfolio is the Lamino armchair from 1956, which is still manufactured and sold all over the world. In 1999 the Lamino was voted the Twentieth Century's Best Swedish Furniture Design by the Swedish interior design magazine Sköna Hem.
