LAST, a collaboration between Åsa Jungnelius, Gustaf Nordenskiöld and Fredrik Paulsen, is a pop-up experience, a shop that can appear anywhere, be it an interior design shop, a gallery, online, or outdoors. Next week during Stockholm Design Week you can experience LAST at Upplandsgatan 9.

Last - handmade design

The concept behind LAST is simple: purchase an object directly from its maker. No intermediaries, long journeys, questionable materials or sweatshop labour. All of the products in the LAST collection are handmade by the artist in his or her studio.

As long as there is water to drink, there will be cups to drink from. But the variation in form these cups can take is virtually limitless. In today’s globalized world, how can we produce products of flesh and blood? Products made with care, that are built to be used for a long time? Can artists and designers circumvent the corporate hierarchy of massproduction and instead manufacture objects themselves, says Gustaf Nordenskiöld.

The LAST line is comprised of customized, one-of-a-kind pieces that collectively suggest integrity and the ability to last a long time. Not only are the products sustainable, but they work together to promote design that is slower, more personal, and more thoughtful. A LAST that will last.

    Blush and black has been one of the best color combos for fall for a sosaen or two now. But the yellow nails tossed in there? Damn if it don’t work like gangbusters. Tough slash girlie with a bootie is maybe a lil overdone…but I think most will agree that there’s something about the print thats not quite asian, not quite victorian, and the tassels on those boots that is so unexpected and refreshing. Thank you for breathing life into a look I thought was played out and reminding us how important the details are!

    I’m looking at the boxscore tonight and if you wanted any further hardware to nail the coffin shut on +/-, Derek Fisher led the Lakers with a +4. This is the guy who got himself, his wife, his children, his relatives, his furniture carbonized by Ray Allen and his lethal jumpshot tonight.

No puede equipararse un programa malintencionado a la imprudencia de dejar un equipo sin contraseña u otra acción similar.De todas maneras, el artículo cumple en informar sobre errores y omisiones comunes.

    Seems like it has a bunch of white males in it … often from the South. As Fox News was panning [quickly] through some amateur video of the plebes celebrating at Annapolis, I could have sworn that I heard them singing [scroll to about the 1:30 mark].

What do you think?
