We are very proud to have been a part of NK Interior’s 2023 edition of its annual Together design initiative and scholarship during Stockholm Design Week, showcasing experimental glass objects created in collaboration with Reijmyre Glassworks. Together, now in its second year, will also be a central part of Made in Sweden this year – a collaborative project and exhibition celebrating the strength of Swedish design, with a focus on sustainability, quality materials, and local production.

This year, the Together initiative is done in collaboration with the venerable Reijmyre Glassworks, maker of hand-crafted, decorative crystal glass for everyday use. The designers Lisa Hilland, Pia Wallén, Monica Förster, Jonas Bohlin, Maxjenny, Anki Gneib, and the 2022 Together scholarship holder Julie Amira have created glass objects to be presented exclusively at NK Interior.

Our participation resulted in Atmos.

“The climate is a major issue of our times and we are constantly reminded of the importance of resource management, not least with the ongoing energy crisis. With energy and climate as a starting point, the candlestick became our portal for commentary on the energy crisis. We wanted to create maximum volume with minimal material. The result was ATMOS, a series of glass spheres, where the fragility of the glass becomes a symbol of the climate.” – Monica Förster
