For Staffan Holm, great design has never been as much about practical functions as emotional ones. WIth so many things around us, he wants us to be affected by each additional new object. His fascination if for the poetic quality of crafts as much as for the wonders of new technology.
Born in 1977. He trained first as a carpenter and then received his master's degree in design at HDK/University of Gothenburg. He worked as a furniture carpenter for four years, and since 2006 has his own studio in Gothenburg -- Staffan Holm Design.
Staffan Holm has received many prizes and awards, including two for his Newton Coffee table from Nordic Design Prize 2009 and Swedish ELLE Decor 2010.
