Stockholm 2013: Oslo designers StokkeAustad and Andreas Engesvik will present blown-glass trees as part of Stockholm Design Week, which begins on Monday.

The Woods comprises clusters of glass bubbles with differing proportions and coloured tints, supported on solid glass stems.

"The inspiration was found in the forests and the lights of the North," says Engesvik. "A tree changing colours and transparency through the seasons is a fascinating process which was captured in this glass object."

Each set comprises seven trees in two clusters. One represents spring with a mixture of greens and the other represents autumn with a combination of pinks, oranges and greys.

Andreas Engesvik was co-founder of Norway Says and founded his own studio in Oslo in 2009. His previous work includes coloured screens in collaboration with Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken and Bunad Blankets inspired by the textiles of Norwegian folk costumes.

We've also previously featured a range of basic kitchen utensils by StokkeAustad and their cantilevered bench with a concrete base.

    I’ve got a crush on this and I can’t even explain why. Maybe I just love the additive properties of color.

    What a stroke of genius it was to embrace the way glassware has often been represented (ie glass objects placed in succession and photographed with a long focal lens so as to cancel perspective effects) and create a decorative piece.

    These are really lovely! Quirky shapes and I love the way the colours mix.
