Mönsterträdgård

My new book Mönsterträdgård (Garden of Patterns), on Swedish textile designer Maria Åström (Scandi Edition 2016), is now available at bookstores, designshops and museumshops in Sweden. Online at Konstig art book store.

Maria Åström, born in 1948, is one of Sweden’s most distinguished textile designers. For several years I’v been following Maria Åström in her creative work and it’s been a journey of curiosity, kind and cool. Hope you like it!

Mönsterträdgård is photographed by Anna Kern and the graphic design is by Anna Larsson.

About a month ago MT went to our printer, Göteborgstryckeriet, in Gothenburg and sheets of beauty started to pile up before our astonished eyes.  Roses and tulips, chestnut and oak…Photo copyright @annalarssondesign.

Blad by Anna Larsson

Graphic designer Anna Larsson has a new collection coming up this fall. Among the many strict and handsome patterns (Anna’s signum) is the charming Blad (”Leaves”). Blad comes as a round tray in diameter 38 cm, and as a tea towel size 50×70 cm. Both products are made in Sweden, in FSC certified birch veneer or 100 % linen.
