Each of these six apartments (ranging from 22 to 38 square meters) will be rehabilitated by duos of forward-thinking brands and designers committed to sustainability, offering six variations of hem in a 16th century historic mansion, a hôtel particulier. In Swedish, home can be described with two words: hus, referring to an impersonal physical space, or hem, which expresses notions of belonging, security and comfort, with a positive emotional association.
Here are the participants who rose up to the challenge of bringing Swedish interiors in France, creating a hemfor our guests:
Carl Malmsten AB – Anna Kraitz
Thomas Eriksson Arkitekter – Ulf Agnér
Beckmans College of Design Stockholm – Paris College of Art
Svenskt Tenn – in line with the philosophies of Estrid Ericsson and Josef Frank
Gärsnäs – Färg & Blanche
Dux – Septembre Architecture & Urbanisme
Since the very beginning, Kasthall has been a part of the project by offering each duo the opportunity to choose the rug that would best suit their studio arrangement. In total, more than thirty brands support the project to create a Swedish atmosphere in 6 studios, down to the finest details. Some example includes Design House Stockholm for the tableware.
These studios will we accessible to the public after their renovation: a daily guided tour will take place from September 8th to October 13th 2019. The projects for the renewal of these spaces are presented in one of our exhibition spaces.
