Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune on Yellow!
During London Design Festival 2011 Skandium is staging a major retrospective of the work by renowned Swedish design and architect trio Claesson Koivisto Rune. The exhibition is Skandiums most ambitious yet and it is taking place at Brompton Road flagship store, startin on the 22nd of September. The exhibition will be launch together with a new product by CKR for the Skandium own brand collection, and the publication of the book: Claesson Koivisto Rune On Yellow, with graphic design by Gabor Palotai.
In the introduction of the book Claesson Koivisto Rune On Yellow Magnus Englund, MD, Skandium Ltd writes:
“ What makes Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune unique is that they remain multidisciplinary with work ranging from architecture and interiors to furniture and textiles, mobile phones and clocks, jewellery and glassware. They are international both in influence and commissions, equally at home in Osaka and Stockholm, working for over forty companies. And they certainly are no unsung heroes; Claesson Koivisto Rune is a name you hear over and over again.
Skandium has shown products designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune since our first store opened in 1999. Even then we felt a major exhibition of their work would benefit London; Claesson Koivisto Rune had been going since 1995 and already had a wide portfolio. As the years passed their portfolio grew, and so did the need for an exhibition. We are therefore proud to finally bring together objects of all kinds, including a stool created for Skandium’s own collection, all designed by Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune. On yellow! ”.
