We are the swedish design duo Åsa & Emme Copparstad.
After years of making products for other companies
and in other areas we decided to finally join forces
and start up together.
In the beginning of the summer of 2010 we launched our
first product "PocketHuset".
From 2011 Copparstad has taken a more conceptual approach.
We will use this studio to explore the world around us.
It will be our own spiritual green house..

Big Bang Lamp
This lamp visualizes the force that flows from a point in space. Like the sun, an explosion or the force radiating from some radioactive matter.
Bamboo sticks, beeswax, glass, epoxy)
This lamp started with the idea of making unique products in mass production processes. Along the way, we discovered how nice it is as a designer to let go of the formgiving & let the process, material & chance to do the job instead. The force from the hydraulic press is frozen in the metal.
(Powdercoated sheet metal)
We consume violence like never before. Violence fills our news programs, newspapers & the internet. As if this wasn't enough much of the entertainment we consume also circulates around violence in various forms. Books, films and TV games depicts violence in a never-ending stream.
Violence is sexy. It scares yet attracts. And it SELLS...
We love violence at a distance. We are fascinated by death, but it must not come too close.
With this shelf, we want to make a connection between the fictional violence & the force of violence in the real world.
