Sweden – the country where the lingonberries grow and the sun never sets in the summer. Sweden is known for the beautiful green hills and the Swedes for their passion for fika (having your daily coffee or tea with something sweet).
Sweden is also the country that gave the world the companies with the capital letters – H&M, IKEA and ABBA. It’s amazing how a small country like Sweden is able to produce so many creative persons and companies. Minimalistic, timeless and simplicity are words that often comes up when describing Swedish design.
