Mats Broberg & Johan Ridderstråle
Interior architects and designers M.F.A, M.S.A
2001-2006. Konstfack University college of Arts Craft & Design,
dept. of Interior design & furniture design.
We are creative collaborators based in Stockholm, Sweden working in a mixed architecture and design practice. We strive to add an emotional value to our design that comunicates with the user through recognition of symbols and meanings. We often draw inspiration from everyday life and try to combine a rational approach with a bit of wit and the clash between past and present.
