Fredrik Mattson is trained as a furniture designer and interior architect. He graduated from the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm in 2002. Before that, he studied cabinet-making for several years.

    “No matter the design commission or choice of materials, my process is often the same. For me, it’s a matter of turning challenges into opportunities. It’s important to keep the original sketch alive and not to allow computer programs or imperfect technologies to govern the process. When I look back at my products, the ones that appear to be the simplest and most obvious are the ones that proved to be the greatest challenges. It’s often these products, too, that are closest to the original sketch.

    I always try to be direct in my design work, without any deviations or short cuts.”
