Description

Oblique originated when Claesson Koivisto Rune's designer-architect trio were decorating a Norwegian hotel and needed a desk with thin proportions and minimal dimensions. Diagonal lines suggest a airy floating sensation, as reflected in its name which means tilting in French. Handmade in Sweden, the piece can be used as a side table or desk and is fashioned from square steel rods with a metal-plate top and finished with a durable and smooth metallic bronze powder coating.

“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.”
