In collaboration with Copenhagen-based architecture and design studio Norm Architects, the Danish interior brands Dux and Menu invented the Sculptor’s Residence for the Stockholm Design Week. This was a curated apartment space with displays of objects and furniture pieces to set the scene of a home and artist atelier.
An exclusive apartment atelier installation that transformed a period house into the eclectic home of an artisan collector. Four different rooms served as an exhibition space for designs from Menu and Dux, tactile sculptures by British object-maker Nicholas Shurey, functional ceramic objects by Sofia Tufvasson and Atelier Armand, limestone and marble podiums by Östersjösten and dolomite plaster plinths by St. Leo. Together with the furniture, lighting and interior accessories, they transformed the space with bold, geometric forms, natural materials and sleek, Modernist lines that perfectly offset the classical details of the building.
“The almost theatrical staging of objects paid homage to the ateliers of great artists – from Picasso’s Parisian hideout to Cezanne’s untouched studio in Aix-en-Provence.
It’s was staged fantasy of sorts; pairing different creative partners to create one creative whole. Furthermore, the Sculptor’s Residence brought the city into play – beyond the four walls of the design fair,” noted Norm Architects’ Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen.
