“Ställe” is the Swedish short term for “country house”. (Literally it means place or position.) A nice word I think. Since 2019 I’ve been creating a collection of furniture and objects with my own “ställe” as my starting point. Not sure where it will end up, but for now I derive a lot of energy and creativity from the concept.
Having no rules or limitations can be difficult to handle, but for me it is pure freedom. A centrepiece in this project, existential and a bit escapist, is this easy chair. A figure that wanders between inside and outdoors. Just like myself when at our “ställe” — searching for sun or shade with a cool drink by my side.
