Stockhom, Sweden and online
This Swedish collection includes some of our favorite contemporary designs, like Ola Wihlborg's Code Baskets (one of Maxwell's Daily Finds
) and Thomas Sandell's Air Bench (blogged here
). As a high-end manufacturer, Asplund produces work by Claesson Koivisto Rune, Thomas Eriksson, Thomas Sandell, Ola Wihlborg, Stina Sandwall, and other cutting-edge Swedish designers.
If you're ever in Scandinavia, their Stockholm store seems like a treat. In addition to functioning as a showroom for their own collection, the store features a broad swath of modern European brands including Alessi, Artemide, B & B Italia, Capellini, Moooi, and Stelton.
Just in case you don't make it over to Sweden, the Asplund collection sells through a network of US retail dealers including Just Scandinavian, More North, Scandinavian Grace, the Apartment, and Scandinavian Details.
