Note Design Studio is an example of how successful the contemporary scandinavian style becomes when a bit of international flair is added to the basic Scandi concept. With Note we get colours, material meetings and patterns on surfaces traditionally kept plain. Note knows how to flirt with styles and ideas from other cultures. It is also interesting to see young studios taking on commissions beyond their usual field of design…like building a house!
With a colour palette based on original colours at kakelugnar (tiled ovens) from the 19th century Note Design Studio transformed an office space in Stockholm into a family home. Pink, green and a ”yellowish white”… The added colours function as a bridge between the original hues and the contemporary result.

The pattern of the original floor has been used in decorative and functional ways as a new wall and as a sound absorbing element. Master bedroom in private apartment Stockholm by Note Design Studio (2017). Photo copyright Note Design Studio.

Two & Four cabinets by Note Design Studio for Reform (2017). The idea was to combine a traditional material with an old style technique – merging terrazzo with woodworking, thus creating a contemporary look. Photo copyright Reform.
