Pieces are both creators and curators focused on the unique and personal, built through the craft, skill and quality of Swedish production.

Pieces was established in 2011 and grew out of a number of ideas that we wanted to develop in a more independent and free context.

Our name reflects our focus on creating individual pieces and objects. Sometimes a single item, sometimes a family.

One, or many, connected or independent. Every piece will be a new narrative.

The first furniture collection from Pieces is “Trotters” - a small family of low tables and open cabinets designed by Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF.

Trotters are like characters from a cartoon, or small friends.

Working with proportion and twisting the balance of the expected in a cabinet or table, the attention has been focused on the often forgotten and understated foot.

Playing with simple geometry, the result is both witty and surprising.

By altering only the materials of the foot, the collection provides many possibilities in a very simple way.

The feet are available in wood, marble, or white glazed porcelain, carrying tables and cabinets of wood and glass.

    How frustrating nothing on dezeen is ever photographed in use, there is a huge tension between the empty shelves and the piles of objects that should be on the shelves in these photos!

    Fine craftsmanship is admirable But he pieces are only marginally useful. One assumes that such exercises are the only way to get attention. .
