VN BENCH AND STOOL
A SCANDINAVIAN TAKE ON A TRADITIONAL VIETNAMESE STOOL. DESIGNED FOR THE HANOI DESIGN CENTRE.
The collection has a minimalistic yet intricate konstruktion with the various angled joints. Visual wooden plugs replaces any use for nails or bolts and makes for an aesthetic detail.
The stool and bench comes in two versions, one lower version with a ”Vietnamese” seating height of 36cm that can be used with a brides pillow for regular ”scandinavian” seating height of 45cm, or they are available in a scandinavian height without the pillow.
The brides pillow is a traditional handicraft item given by the bride to her groom upon marriage. Here made in a custom shape and of indigo hemp fabric with colorful embroidery, stuffed with pampas filling.
The wood material is white oak, treated with a natural wax for protection. A sustainable production, made to last for generations.

HANOI DESIGN CENTER
A MEETING POINT FOR DESIGN AND CRAFT IN VIETNAM
Hanoi Design Centre (HDC) is established as a result of the cooperation between Vietnam Handicraft Exporters Association (Vietcraft) and Lund Design School, Lund University, Sweden. This cooperation was partly funded by SIDA and supported by the Embassy of Sweden in Hanoi.
HDC is an continuation of several years of working with development projects for building design capacity in Vietnam. Learning from past projects the goal has been to ensure a sustainable solution for design devlopment within the handicraft sector, that will continue to grow without foreign aid or subsidies.
HDC is located in a reconstructed old French-colonial house at the hart of Hanoi. A platform for cultural and technological exchange in relations to design and art.
The Centre houses two showrooms, a design studio, a library, a craft demonstration room and an arts cafe. With an airy space, large windows, beautiful terraces and rich craft installations, the Centre is designed to foster cultural exploration, design collaboration and experimentation, while providing a pleasant shopping experience for customers and buyers.
Besides workshops and seminars at the Centre, field trips were aslo made to the various ethnic villages where traditional handicraft manufacturing is still part of the daily life.
The purpose is to collect information about their craft traditions and conduct workshops and training sessions around design, markets and teambuilding. The goal is to maintain their craft culture profitable, create work opportunities and increase their export strength.

LIMITED EDITION TEXTILES DESIGNED FOR IKEA.
The FJÄLLTÅG collection has as its starting point the meeting between the past and the present. The simple and the romantic. The massproduced and the handmade. Inspiration has been drawn from Sweden during 1880- 1920, a period when the country had one foot in the industrial age and the other in an agrarian society. The collection draws on and passes on knowledge about textiles and their myriad of potential. It harks back to a time when the fabric itself formed part of the palette, and the colours were based on natural pigments. When patching and mending were part of a fabric’s lifecycle; a type of natural recycling where duvet covers were given new life as cushion covers or part of a patchwork. FJÄLLTÅG is, all about the love of needlework and a flirt with the past.

COLLABORATION WITH HI ON LIFE
SPACE BY RMH IN COLLABORATION WITH HI ON LIFE
For this project we as the design collective same_same, teamed up with Malin Busck from Hi On Life to create a range of accessories for her debut at Space by RMH (a satellits event to Stockholm fashion week).
Inspired by Malins approach to slow fashion we developed a collection of ceramic accessories playing with the hand in hand-made.
This collection focused on craft, process and alchemy. Using a very low tech approach to production, each ceramic piece was hand made and burnt in an open fire to draw out the rich black colours from within the clay.
