This proud piece of recycled furniture from Beata Bäck´s series Åter (Again), is called Kommandobryggan (The Bridge, as in on a ship, or Star Trek), and is now living in my hallway. Beata exhibited at Konstfack´s spring exhibition at the same time as me, and afterwords I contacted her to say that I really liked her pieces. It turned out that she really liked mine too, and we agreed to a trade. So today it arrived, it seems a bit lost right now, but I'll make a good place for it in the hallway, and I will find a nice mirror, in a similar style, to go over it, and put some mittens in the drawer, to make it feel at home.
I find it really inspiring, the way old furniture can become something new in this way, It loosens old ways of thinking, it makes me think freer, it makes me freer.
