Made in Sweden

We all know that Scandinavian design is appreciated all over the world. This is why SMD Design not only believes that good Swedish design deserves to be made in Sweden, but they actually make most of their products at their own production site, in Småland, in southern Sweden.

 The below products will be available at the Scandinavian Art and Design week by ide&oda, but if you see any other products on their website that you like, let me know.

Just waiting to be hugged!

Most important act at the Scandinavian Art and Design exhibition will be Swedish artist Matt Nils who will be spreading joy and playfulness with his ceramic Hugboxes.

Available in different sizes, in black and white, these whimsical sculptures are each carefully hand sculpted and glazed.

We (the design film company) had some fun making this video for you.
