Claesson Koivisto Rune: 1. Architecture - 2. Design

The Swedish design partnership Claesson Koivisto Rune was founded a little over ten years ago but has already received extraordinary recognition. Like Scandinavian masters before them, such as Aalto or Jacobsen, Claesson Koivisto Rune practise both architecture and design. In 2004 they were among the first Swedish architects to be selected for the international section of the Architecture Biennale in Venice. The architectural projects in this monograph include private houses and interiors from Europe to North and South America, as well as larger buildings like the Sfera Building Culture House in Kyoto, Japan. The furniture and other product designs presented here are manufactured by over 30 international companies. All photographs have been taken anew for this publication, which is a design object in itself, consisting of two books - separate volumes for architecture and design - with introductions by Paola Antonelli (MoMA) and Marcus Fairs (ICON Magazine).
