Hanging with Staffan Holm

Back in the city. Today I had the opportunity to hang out with an old classmate of mine, Staffan Holm. Staffan work with interior architecture, industrial design and furniture design. So much knowledge in that man. Wish I had the tiniest bit of his knowledge of materials and craft skills.

I literally hung around him like a fly (hope I was not too annoying) today when we cruised around Gothenburg city to check out an ongoing restaurant project of his and a completed one (scrool down). We also took a trip to his magnificent studio, which he share with another star designer Daniel Rybakken.

Staffan keep on winning prizes for his work, the latest one was the prestigious award Bruno Mathson prize for 2013. The Spin stool (above) for Swedese was awarded with “Furniture of the Year” in 2011 by Swedish design magazine Sköna Hem. Personally would like to award Staffan for the Gym hooks for Danish Hay, which are not only good looking but brilliant, in several ways.

Fratelli Gridelli (below) is a cozy new restaurant in Gothenburg with tasty food, quality goods directly imported from Italy, an owner who write down orders on an, according to him, extra culinary olive oil AND interior architecture by Staffan Holm.

The interior was a challenge for Staffan really since the square meters are few. Smart storage shelves in oak, mirror steel, marble, glass and well thought-out details made it all complete. Impressing. The restaurant’s Tiramisu as well.

Unfortunately I did not manage to take any good overview photos of the interior. You’ll have to go there your self, it’s worth it – Fratelli Gridelli, Tegnérsgatan 26 Göteborg.
