A saturday morning at Martas Café

There is a lot of chores and planning in putting together an exhibition, even such a small one as this one. So, with all the improvising and all the late-coming ideas, this has been more of a active laboratory than a passive exhibition for Holger and me. We decided to commit to a few days where we would be present at the exhibition. This would give us a chance to talk to people, witness their interest, even probe for candidates for future sketching partners. Since the exhibition is behaving like an analog blog…Read more
My sister’s wedding

My sister’s wedding

A sunny mid-March weekend had me flying from Copenhagen to Lisbon to Faro and back in little over 40 hours. The effort was worthwhile because I was going for the wedding of one of the dearest persons in the world to me - my little sister. It was a true designer's wedding: simple & sleek, with a touch of fun and a tad of emotion.

Visitors will be able to comment on the works by writing or drawing their comment on post-its available on site and…Read more

Frequent coucher

Thomas is a frequent flyer at our foldable couch. He is an architecture student from the Netherlands that we met a couple of years ago and became good friends with. Everytime he visits his family up in central Sweden, he takes the opportunity to stop by and visit. On this occasion he was on his way back to the Netherlands. This time he was driving his brand-new second-hand end-of-the-century Volkswagen Polo and, to cut costs, he went online to a hitchhiking website. Mercedeh was going from Norway to Germany, so it was fortunate…Read more
The dawn of blog

The dawn of blog

We’re way past 2001, but the tools that were pictured in the future bits in 1968 Kubrick’s classic still feel strangely different from the tools that we have now. A website is a tool. Its purpose is not to beat up other monkeys nor to travel in space, but to show to the world a little bit of who we are and what are we all about. As an employed professional, I never felt the need to showcase my own work, as that was naturally being done by the company that I represented.…Read more
