Staffan Holm

To fall head over heels in love! To Swedish Staffan Holm, great design has never been as much about practical functions, as emotional ones. With so many things around us, we need to be affected by each new object. And his fascination is for the poetic quality of crafts as much as for the wonders of new technology ... both essential ingredients for the development of society. A great example of his design is Spin stool for Swedese, the furniture that (to be honest) is really too complex to be produced.
Staffan Holm was born in 1977. He trained first as a carpenter and then took a degree in design at HDK/University of Gothenburg. He worked as a furniture carpenter for four years, and since 2006 has his own studio in Gothenburg - Staffan Holm Design.
Staffan Holm has received many prizes and awards, including two for his Newton Coffee Table from Nordic Design Prize 2009 and Swedish ELLE decoration 2010.
