Furniture

local-source.furniture – A furniture concept about making use of local resources. Follow the free drawing and build it yourself with wood from a hardware store, or purchase the premium version and take it to your local cabinetmaker. 

Once upon a time there was a business strategy called “mönsterritningar”. Furniture drawings that were ordered and taken to a local cabinetmaker who made it for you – if you did not want to build it yourself. 

local-source.furniture is a furniture concept inspired by “mönsterritningar” and open source. With the project I have sought to emphasize the time required for creating furniture, from designing to manufacturing, and inspire to build yourself or buy locally. 

The bench is designed in accordance with predetermined guidelines set by myself. The dimensions are adapted to suit planed pine from hardware stores and essential tools are an electric screwdriver, drill, and possibly a saw. The design is adaptable to different dimensions and can be repeated in several directions to enable a furniture series.  

The free bench is built by my mother and the premium version is made by Oscar Wall, a local cabinetmaker. I have built a developed version of the free bench in the form of a shelf, which shows how the design can be further developed into more types of furniture.  

Everything can be seen at local-source.furniture.

Eos

Furniture

Eos is a bedside table existing in the borderlands between the functional and sculptural, designed by me and Max Stjerna in collaboration with DUX. The abstract shape, consisting of elementary planes and surfaces, aims to discreetly elevate its contents.

Vibrant natural materials such as limestone and wood contribute to the table's comforting presence, and through well considered proportions Eos aims to harmonise with its environment. 

Hidden and easily accessible storage, rudimentary qualities for a bedside table, are driving factors in Eos’ design. By excluding an obvious front and back, the table is not restricted to the bed and bedroom but stands just as naturally next to a sofa or an armchair.

DUXs’ knowledge spans almost a century of gathered knowhow regarding human living environments with emphasis on the bedroom. Their design heritage and focus on quality has been a great asset in the collaboration. 

Eos comes in two versions, Tall and Wide, adapted to fit different DUX beds.

During the winter my boyfriend and I always miss the patches of sunlight on the walls. Gryning is a lamp designed to capture that light.

Salis Saccarina

Product

Salis Saccharina is a spice mortar designed to get Swedes to eat more seaweed. The granite base is a reference to the classical granite mortar. The salt pestle gives away salt when it crushes the seaweed and makes a salty sea-seasoning mix.

Take-in Café

Interior

Take-in is a student café designed to give students a place to study without interruptions. Take-in encourage the students to bring their own food but still sells food and coffee. The student café includes a space to study, eat and drink and a separate part for doing the dishes, recycle, microwaves, lockers and toilettes.

Klarälven

Pattern

Two pattern reports inspired by ta small island and a river that runs right outside my childhood home in Karlstad, Sweden. Combined in different ways they create an infinity of various patterns.

Johanna Fosselius is designing spaces. Whether it be objects in space or the space itself, the root is always the human being.

Having studied ballet throughout childhood rhythm and flow has become part of her DNA and with a background as an international model, she has unique experience both on and off set.

With her design she wishes to encourage a mindset and behavior that is better for people and the planet with products, spaces and experiences in materials and shapes that lasts.

Johanna is currently studying at Beckmans College of Design and is open for job opportunities.
