“We put things into square spaces without thinking about the relationship between the object and the room it’s in,” Olovsson told in an interview to Dezeen. “The Room collection has various different voids, in a bold and unconventional way, to give each object a greater focus by giving it its own room.”

Each block can be room to invite any object – the composition is unlimited.” “Our intention is also to let people explore their own composition with just a few pieces or the whole set as a shelf, which maximizes flexibility of the relationship between object and space,” said Olovsson.

A matte-lacquer finish is less affected by reflection and allows the wood grain and the form to present in a gentle way.”
