Kite has a unique, delicate look and an ingenious construction: a mesh fitted over a steel frame.

That’s why it’s named after kite-surfing kites. The soft and flexible upholstery undeniably resembles the texture of a sail.


Broberg & RidderstrĂĄle

Sometimes you want to whisper and sometimes shout. Just like Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle’s design. Their pieces can both make a splash and be unobtrusive, as their design is both ration­al and captivating. Broberg & Ridderstråle likes to look at history and inter­twine it with contemporary life to create some­thing rooted in tradition, but not retro. Like Swedese’s table Divido – made en­tirely of wood, modern-looking and a subtle nod to Yngve Ekström’s classic Lamino.

Mats Broberg was born in 1974 in Stockholm and Johan Ridderstråle in 1979 in Lund. They met at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design where they both studied interior design. Many collab­orations, from their graduation piece to an offer to exhibit in Japan, opened the way to their joint office.

Broberg & RidderstrĂĄle is based in Stockholm and works with architecture as well as furniture and product design. The office is represented in the National Museum in Stockholm and has been acclaimed by, amongst others, the British magazine Wallpaper and Swedish Elle Decoration.


Swedese's ideals are the same today as they have been for the past seventy years. These are to create beautiful furniture for the future, which build on the foundations of Scandinavian modern traditions, designed by forward-looking designers who share in the timeless ideals of architecture.
