Catarina von Matérn + Lisa Lindström


Born: Sweden, 1972


Lisa Lindström graduated from the Department of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack University College of Arts and Crafts in Stockholm in 2000.


Lisa’s first project after graduation was to develop a concept for self-service check-ins at Stockholm Arlanda airport for 

SAS, and aircraft interiors for Airbus. For four years, she worked in product design and industrial design at the Thomas Eriksson Design Studio and Stockholm Design Lab. Have you ever visited the bar during a long haul flight? Then you’ve experienced some of her work.


She also was part of the design team developing new products such as bed linens, textiles, accessories and bedding for HÄSTENS. During this time, she worked periodically in

product development for IKEA: desks, shelves, brackets, beds, and, as you may recognise, ‘Ribba’ – the bestselling picture frame of all time.

Lisa Lindström has worked at Aperto arkitekterbyggkonsulter AB since 2008 , focusing on interior architecture, demand-driven/activity-based workplaces, and accessibility issues.

The white floor lamp made of polyethylene can be used very versatilely. Its rolled-up central red cable gives it the look of a giant yo-yo. Whether in a loft, a garden or large rooms - you can roll it anywhere you need light at the moment. The heavy-duty cable is 16 metres long, making any additional extension cables superfluous.
