The Old National Archive in Stockholm, by architect Axel Fredrik Nyström, was built in 1890 and is one of the first purpose built archive buildings in Europe. It’s been a listed building since 1993, with most original features left untouched, including the metal slide for quick transportation of letters and books. The building is rarely open to the public.

Ariake is a relatively young furniture brand founded by Legnatec and Hirata Chair, two furniture factories from Morodomi in Saga prefecture, Japan. Named after the nearby Ariake Sea, Ariake also means ‘daybreak’ in Japanese. Ariake launched in 2017 and had its first exhibition, A Quiet Reflection, in Stockholm 2018. Today Ariake is represented in more than 15 countries. Whilst Ariake collaborates with a number of international designers, all the pieces are crafted in Morodomi, utilising the best of hand and machine.

LE KLINT is internationally renowned for its success in producing hand pleated lamps and lampshades at its production facilities in Odense Denmark. The business was established by Tage Jensen Klint in 1943 from the first hand pleated LE KLINT lampshade design that his father P.V Jensen Klint made to fit his petroleum and stone base lamp design.Today, apprentice pleaters have to complete a 3 year qualifying process to master specific techniques and pleating forms by hand, before they are inducted into the LE KLINT pleating studio as an official Pleating Technician.

2016/Arita started as an ambitious project to celebrate the history and skills of the porcelain-making area of Arita in Japan. 16 international designers were invited to Arita to collaborate with craftmen on objects that demonstrated the skills of the region whilst also appealing to a new contemporary audience.
