In the new issue of Form we have turned our gaze to the north and met, among others, the versatile designer Lotta Lampa, based in Kalix. “I think everything I do is all over the place and I easily get restless. I work with metal, enamels and I’ve made hand tufted carpets”.

The summer issue also offers a unique interview with the architectural firm Lacaton & Vassal and a conversation about color with the legendary textile artist Wanja Djanaieff. In collaboration with Design by Umeå and Region Västerbotten, we have published a 20-page insert on the best of what the region has to offer, from the new culture centre Sara in Skellefteå – named after Sara Lidman and one of the world’s tallest wooden buildings – to designer Mathilda Karlsson, who has created a cosy patient room for gynaecology clinics.

During the pandemic, many people have spent more time at home than usual, which has led to a huge interest in plants. Therefore, Form’s summer issue also offers a historical look at the role of plants in interior design contexts, by Björn Ehrlemark.

And do not miss: the glass artist Monica L Edmondson on her project 100 Migratory and Italian art and design duo Studio Ossidiana who has created an outdoor installation on Skeppsholmen in Stockholm.

Form Magazine 3/2021 is available online and in stores on June 1st.
