Swedes Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle graduated from Konstfack University of design with honours and founded their eponymous design and architecture studio in Stockholm in 2007.
Their work combines an aesthetic rationalism with a touch of humour and wit. They describe their design approach as follows: “Inspiration is the first and most important key you are looking for when designing a new object. Without this first-hand vision the designer is often lost in shapes and forms that lack soul and meaning. However, the source of inspiration and how you use it is never certain. This is the beauty of design to us. Never knowing when or where your next project will begin. You just have to keep your eyes open..."
Their work has successfully been exhibited in Tokyo, Milan and London and has received numerous awards.
