Swedish designer Lisa Hilland is a graduate of Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design who, after 10 years of studies and design, has founded her own studio. Her first collection, My Granddaughter’s Cabinet, focuses on quality craftsmanship. She envisions it as being like heirlooms, passed on from generation to generation.
From the designer:
I have chosen birch as my main material because of its lustrous and silky surface. The last tree to be seen in our mountains before the vegetation disappears altogether in the high altitudes, birch can stand strong winds and the cold Nordic winters. It is traditionally used in Scandinavian stick back chairs. Cherry, oak, and pear veneer are used in combination to create contrasting and playful patterns. In addition to its visual beauty,
I have chosen reindeer leather for decorative details because of its tactile qualities and softness. It is a material traditionally used by the nomadic Sami people, sourced from the Scandinavian Arctic.
