During Stockholm Creative Edition, 24–27 May, the exhibition Parallel lines will be shown at House of Gärsnäs. A collection of objects and sculptures in paper, ceramics and textiles that portray a flow of ideas and experiments with materials. Included in the show are webbing handbags, stoneware pots, cushions and wall sculptures. The exhibition highlights the adventures and processes of creativity.

“The end result doesn’t have to always be a product. Here, I also wanted to show sketches and experiments. The hands-on work of building and testing ideas that point the way forward. Intuition and repetition combine to uncover new interpretations,” says Anna. “Inspiration comes from ancient architecture to lines in a notebook.”

The exhibition rekindles a long friendship. Anna von Schewen and Gärsnäs go back some 20 years together. “It seems natural to have an exhibition here, we have always had good communication. I look forward to present these objects in the lovely light at House of Gärsnäs.”

Anna von Schewen founded her design studio in 1997 and is continuously working with some of the most renowned Swedish and international brands such as Gärsnäs, Fogia, String, Svenskt Tenn, BSweden, De Padova, Ditre Italia, Zanotta and Arflex Japan. She has gained a reputation for her experimental and exploring approach to furniture design as well as interior, exhibitiondesign and architecture. She combines her Scandinavian attitude towards material and form with a strong interest in textiles to create useful objects where concept and detailing merge.

The exhibition Parallel Lines shows sketches and new objects which form Anna von Schewens new collection. The series of stoneware are developed and made in close collaboration with ceramicist Anna Löwenhielm. Hand-made in Sweden and for sale at House of Gärsnäs from May 24.
