  • Description

    It's easy to identify furniture classics from the middle of the last century, but considerably more difficult to decide when more recent designs have become classics. The Snow series by Asplund has managed to defy this by becoming somehting very few furniture series can ever hope for; a modern classic in its own time. In 2019, Asplund wants to celebrate this classic series with the limited edition Rose version that will only be available this year.

    The Snow series started life in 1994 as a brief by the entrepreneur Björn Sandell to create a well designed, quality furniture series that could provide employment for Forminord, a company located near the Arctic Circle. The task fell to Jonas Bohlin and Thomas Sandell, two young creatives from a new generation, embracing traditional Swedish design elements while also having an international outlook. The Snow series was purposely simple with the handles being the only decorative feature of the cabinets, while also being functional by providing a comfortable grip.

    In 1998, Asplund became the biggest buyer of the Snow series, so it was only natural that they took over distribution and sales. 25 years after the series was initially designed, the production has moved to the small town of Tibro in southern Sweden to be reduce impact on the environment from transportation.
