Anna Lindsten

AnnaLindstenLove these patterns and products created by Stockholm-based illustrator and designer, Anna Lindsten. She works with various tools in her work but the paper cutting probably gives us the simple shapes we at Cari Mateo so admires. Here’s what we know about the artist from her bio:

“Anna likes the forest so there are lots of trees, woodplants and characters – imaginative or not – in her work. Her work is colourful and playful, inspiration come from popular culture, comics, art, fairy tales, fashion, vintage children books, magazines, children’s art, folk art, the Swedish landscape of Småland that has a big influence on her since she was a child.”

The fiberglass lamps can be purchased individually or in groups. Particularly liking the house on top of a hill-shaped shade.

Jenny Wallmark

JennyWallmarkParticularly loving the color palette of illustrator and designer, Jenny Wallmark.  She is the founder of Wallmark Form Studio, a design company based in Sweden. In her design page on Swedish online shop, Confident Living, she describes her work as follows:

“My design is often a playful mannerisms, with imaginative forms and exciting color combinations but sometimes also simple and unadorned. A design or pattern that I design for a child might as well fit an adult and vice versa! I hope people are happy and feel at ease when they see my design.”
