Absolut Creative Space – A Sustainable Pop-up Studio

Absolut Creative Space by Skog&Stuveback

Recently graduated architects Astrid Skog and Charlotte Stuveback got a commission from Absolut to create an ”Absolut Creative Space”. Taking inspiration from the company’s production process they chose to use containers previously used for shipping vodka to create four unique work environments that enables limitless creative processes. The containers were placed by Färgfabriken in Stockholm, an old factory turned art gallery and event space, and the space around and between the containers was filled with plants and pallets to make a semi-official zone where visitors are invited to hang out.

All materials used were recycled,  and the studio is designed to be easy to pack and move to different places. It will be in its current location until July 3, and then move to the Absolut head quarters in Åhus.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at:
