The Sculptor’s Residence by Norm Architects, DUX and Menu

The Sculptor's Residence by Norm Architects, DUX and Menu

The Sculptor’s Residence was the first exhibition to kick off Stockholm design week 2020. It was located in the most stunning apartment in central Stockholm. Styled by the talented Linnea Ek Blæhr from Norm Architects, the space was curated as if a sculptor lived there, hence the title of the exhibition.

New products from Menu, DUX and Norm Architects filled the apartment, alongside their current collections. For me this is the most pleasant way to see new designs exhibited. In keeping with the sculptural theme the apartment was styled with sculptures by Nicholas Shurey, Sofia Tufvasson and Atelier Armand helped create the feeling of the sculptor’s home.

The almost theatrical staging of objects pays homage to the ateliers of great artists – from Picasso’s Parisian hideout to Cezanne’s untouched studio in Aix-en-Provence – and allows visitors a glimpse into the artistic process – on a larger scale. It’s a staged fantasy of sorts; pairing different creative partners to create one creative whole. Furthermore, the Sculptor’s Residence brings the city into play – beyond the four walls of the design fair,” Norm Architects’ Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen.

While I was there the day light became a little moody, my vibe, and here’s what I captured.

After visiting the sculptor’s residence I’m even more inspired to keep on sculpting. And maybe style my space with this artisanal apace in mind.

It’s me. Ok, I’m no model, I get it, but I do look like the sculptor that is imagined for this space. Right?(photo taken by DUX for the press lunch)
