Johan Ridderstråle and Mats Broberg, who make up the design duo Broberg & Ridderstråle, have received the Designer of the Year Award 2011 from Swedish design magazine Residence. The duo was awarded for, among a few other designs, the Lite chair designed for OFFECCT.
Ridderstråle and Broberg have been working together since they met at Konstfack (University College of Arts, Crafts and Design). They work with the belief that the world can always become a little better, easier, and smarter. They use everyday materials and phenomenon, give them a little twist and create something new and unique.
Broberg & Ridderstråle has also designed the table Bird for OFFECCT.
We at OFFECCT are very happy for Jonas and Mats and wish them all the best for future projects!
