Cube-like drawers distinguish Snow B, from Asplund's storage collection hailed as a 20th century Swedish classic. Thomas Sandell and Jonas Bohlin's concept is purposely simple, with cutout handles as both a decorative element and offering a readily comfortable grip. Equipped with soft-closing drawers in a range of configurations, the lacquered MDF cabinet comes in a select range of Nordic hues, with a contrasting natural birch base. Snow is fundamentally handcrafted and made to order in the small town of Tibro in southern Sweden with its long furniture-making tradition. In combination or on its own, this a storage solution meant to last for generations; affixing the unit to the wall is recommended.

“Small details are more important in simple minimalist design, because you see every line,” says Sandra Adrian Asplund, creative director at the eponymous Stockholm-based furniture brand. The brothers Asplund—Michael, an art dealer, and Thomas, a banker—originally teamed up to open a gallery that treated furnishings as works of fine art. When their vision took off, Sandra joined the team as creative head (and later spouse of Thomas) to develop a collection in a style they dub “Friendly Minimalism” that has grown into an internationally acclaimed design leader.
A warmer take on iconic Swedish minimalism, the Asplund look is similarly grounded in functionality and and hews to an ethos of sustainably. “Natural materials often require a bit of love and care, but in return, they age beautifully and last a lifetime,” says Sandra. Carefully produced in Sweden with environmentally friendly processes and a large measure of hand craftsmanship, Asplund goods are contemporary heirlooms, she says. “Unless every inch is perfect, it is not good enough.”
