Last week One Nordic Furniture Company was featured quite heavily during the Stockholm Design Week. Their Levels lamp won the award for best new product at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and the Bento chair made it to Yatzer’s highlights of the week list
We’ve had the pleasure of shooting for One Nordic lately and it’s given us the possibility to get creative and use some of our knowledge of architectural photography in a studio environment. It’s been great fun working with the guys at One Nordic and we will definitely be shooting more of their great furniture in the future. Below are a few behind the scenes shots from the studio sessions.

Stockholm Design Week
The third artist we photographed for the Modern Historic 1900 -project was sculptor and proffessor Kimmo Pyykkö. Two weeks ago we visited his house in Helsinki for the shoot and had the opportunity to talk about his work.
In the 70’s he made large surrealistic aluminum sculptures while his later works are more inspired by nature. He showed us wooden reliefs and mounted birds that he uses for making molds for his sculptures.
After we had shot our images we sat for a while in his studio for some coffee and snacks. Mr. Pyykkö spoke very openly about his past and shared with us insights into his own life. He also told us about the different techniques and styles he has gone through and the length of his work. Once again it was quite fascinating to get a glimpse behind the curtains of one our great artists.
