Here on Apartment Therapy we love repurposed suitcases
and creative dollhouses
— so finding an artist who combines the two is especially intriguing. Swedish artist Bo Christian Larsson makes large-scale drawings, installations, performance art and objects. The dollhouse/hotel suitcases shown here are just a sample of his interesting objects. He explains: "I feel uncomfortable as a human in our time. That's why I hardly create new products, but try using already existent material." (SZ newspaper, 26./27.01.2008 in "Der Mann aus dem Wald").
