Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune, both designers and architects, thought of the tea ceremony in Sweden and its social importance, when conceiving this set. The most important thing they had in mind when designing the set was functionality. This criteria is of high importance when living in a cold climate as in Sweden.

The set includes trays in pure brass, copper and blackened steel reversible with Canadian hard maple serving/cutting side. The design is a collaboration between Koivisto, Rune and Mjölk, a gallery located in Toronto Canada, exhibiting works of Japanese and Scandinavian artists.

Hilma af Klint

Before Kandinsky, Malevich and Mondrian, there was Hilma af Klint. After a breakout exhibition of her work in their Stockholm museum back in 2013, Malmö’s Moderna Musseet revisits the Swedish artist’s oeuvre to present new insights into af Klimt’s systematic research.

It’s no surprise that this Swedish artist has a background in both architecture and dance, as her handmade geometric shapes are studies in structural composition and movement. Bella talks to TLmag about her fascination with interfaces, the truth about intuition, and the similarities between yarn and smartphones.
