Konstfack’s open-air café
How can Konstfack communicate its inner soul in its external space?
On the basis of our new professional role as interior architects and furniture designers, in our degree project we have taken on Konstfack’s outdoor café. The project has been an opportunity to work on this location as a whole and to design a series of site-specific items of outdoor furniture.
The current concrete floor, which is part of the main entrance to Konstfack, has been converted from a windy no-man’s-land to a well-kept and pleasant outdoor café. Through clear choices of materials and generous design we have made it into a place for relaxation and spending time together in the sun. No pretentions, just a nice lunch in pleasant company.
With the aim of an interdisciplinary approach to work, we have created a framework that lets the place react to influences and allows it to change over time. We are leaving something behind us that not only represents us and Konstfack at present but can also represent Konstfack in the future.
This is a degree project by Marcus Abrahamsson and Kristoffer Fagerström.
