Now Reading: Stoft-Studio Designed Furniture with Twist
Written 5 months ago by
Stoft studio is a Swedish design studio based in Malmö founded by Industrial designer (MFA) Jenny Ekdahl, Ola Nystedt and Joel Herslow. Drawn together by a common fascination for how things move, sound and feel, their work builds on the trios complementary approaches towards design. They explore and break down what’s predictable into fragments that are surprising and fascinating and focus on the creation of design through research in human behavior, materials and craftsmanship. Whether a conceptual or commercial project, a driving force behind Stoft‘s creative process is to find a balance between poetic design and industrial manufacturing. By exploring alternative ways of production with an experimental research phase in the development process they seek to shape objects with slowness and sensibility, often inspired by cutting-edge techniques and traditional craftsmanship. Their designs are produced in unique one-offs, limited editions or in larger batches, by themselves or in collaboration with skilled craftsmen or producers.
