Let me present to you: ‘LOVE CONNECTION’

Finallly I get to present my piece of furniture to the world; the ‘Love Connection’!
Yesterday it was official at Stockholm Furniture Fair.


Here’s the producer Green Furniture Sweden’s words;

“It started with a Love Seat idea – connected armchairs facing each other.
And while connecting, why not connect many (a lot of Love!). And if making
the armchairs from several smaller ‘pieces of pie’, different sizes armchairs
can be made and connecting them can make a winding creation of Love.
Adding straight pieces shapes a sofa and the Love is complete!
Upholstered on a wooden frame with horse hair/natural rubber topped with
wool felt and eco labelled fabrics.”

On 25, Jan 2012 | No Comments | In Design Blog, Furniture, Media | By :Peter

Read the interview at the blog, here

The other day I was interviewed by the design blog Formrepubliken. Which is by the way one of Swedens most inspiriational blogs when it comes to design. And I must add – a favorite of mine. So it made my day when I got contacted by Peter Aderstedt, the man behind the site.

Visit the link above to read it. Google Translate it if you’re not Swedish speaking. Enjoy. Hope I get to see you at Stockholm Furniture Fair!

Culture Night 2011 – Exhibition

On 25, Sep 2011 | No Comments | In Art, Design Blog, In the Spotlight | By :Peter

During Culture Night (Kulturnatten) on the 24 of september I exhibited my artwork ‘Sweden Losing Faith’ as an installation. This art piece is not one of my latest work but probably one of my most important ones! It’s message will never go out of date. So this is one of the main reasons I wanted it to be exhibited on a important night the Norrköping Culture Night is. I’ve been looking for quite some time to find a perfect place to build up my installation. When I started to research places one of my top pics were the Public Library. It’s one of my favourite modern buildings in the city (drawn by Sten Samuelsson in 1968), and the country for that matter. I immediately fell in love with it’s exciting angles and especially it’s concrete walls (with wooden structre!) – In short a Perfect place to display a strong message. The installation became a beautiful display of contrasts and at first glance a hard hitting shout out. But in the long run a hopeful message …

Your thoughts
The beauty about this piece is that it’s not just one message. It’s what You see and feel. To me it says different things every time … What I thought was most interesting was to listen to your thoughts and reflections about the piece/installation. Here’s some thoughts;

– Swedish flag; Most visitors reacted on the swedish flag. Which is negatively associated with racism, within Sweden. A symbol that rarely no one dares to display except during correct holidays. We’re to affraid of being stamped as racists. This annoys and sadens …
– The cross is also a symbol that raises questions. Most people see it as it’s being taken down from the wall. We’re losing faith. Belief in general – in fellow man, in the world, in the church …
– Helping hand. There is hope in the world. We’re reaching out and helping in a better way today. Thanks to internet and the quick awareness …
– Losing belief. Material world. We don’t believe in a higher being. We’re materialists and believe in money and carriers ..
– Disturbance. The world is out of balance – we need to find ways to stabilize everything again.
– Satanic cross. Alot of evil is out there and the world is becoming a harder place to live in.

… What do you see!? Comment below. – *more thoughts will be posted*

Nils Möbler + Konceptuella möbler

Två profiler inom den moderna möbelformgivningen kommer från Västernorrland. Båda två heter de Nils. Den världsberömde Nisse Strinning är en av dem. Grundaren av Europamöbler, inredaren Nils Lindholm, den andre.

Möbeltillverkning och kända storsnickare har en lång historia i länet. Både hantverksskicklighet och formkänsla ger sig till känna i länsmuseets samlingar. Den produktion som bär Nisse Strinning och Nils Lindholms märke hör hemma i en modernistisk tradition från 1950-, 60- och 70-tal. De bildar en bro mot samtiden och framtiden.

Det fjärde tillägget i utställningen Nils möbler+ visar formgivning där designern tänker utanför ramarna och utvecklar koncept som inte är begränsade av dagens teknik och material. Samtliga möbler som visas i utställningen är formgivna av designers som finns i eller har anknytning till länet. Peter Mäkelä är en av dessa möbelvisionärer.

Peter Mäkelä kommer att ställa ut en digital visualisering på den prisbelönta konceptstolen Angel Chair och en av mattorna, Golden Ball, från CROP Carpets Collection samt ett par nytänkande tapetmönster.

Utställningen har premiär den 11 januari 2011.

Peter Mäkelä FÖR Norrlandspojkarna (Exhibition)

On 26, Nov 2010 | 7 Comments | In Design Blog, In the Spotlight | By :Peter

The ART mission for Norrlandspojkarna is over. Done. Finnished. The exhibition went well. Alot of people showed up, and the response was overwhelming. I feel proud, honoured and a little blue. Well, I always do when a large project has come to an end. I guess it’s because I get so emotionally envolved in the work process …

… Anyhow, the artworks are permanent, so if you didn’t get the chance to show up during my exhibition you can always visit the head office of NP (Heffnersvägen 1, Sundsvall), or see the pieces right here, right now:

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010 was a great success. It’s hard to sum up the whole amazing week in short. It was so jam packed with exciting meetings, introductions and releases … But I can for sure say that the most fun of it all are all the new and interesting co-operations with aware and openminded producers. That believe in me and my far out ideas! So keep your eyes open soon you’ll see a number of my collections on the market. First out is CROP Carpets Collection for A-Carpet. After that Pride Collection for Design M. And more to come …

Things I will remember for a long time are; The CROP Carpet and green design chat with Maud OlofssonAndrea Ruggieros kind words. The walk about with deputy primeminister, Olle Melkerhed Not-loosing his camera. The release party of Design M’s showroom. And of course all the wonderful visitors and collegues.

Thank you all for your wonderfull support! See you next year.

The popular Crop Carpet stand Deputy primeminister Maud Olofsson stopped by and discussed green design. She loved the rug! The Design Team of Design M (Seller Stand) The wallpaper 'Coathangers' The Pride Romance pattern in the background Table designed by PM in High pressure laminate (hpl) La Table with the Pride Romance pattern The designer in front of his grand mouse; 'Ear Candy'
