About Tingest

The Tingest brand offers products for the home inspired by Scandinavian design heritage. The majority of the items are manufactured in Sweden in association with carefully selected skilled craftsmen and based on a commitment to natural  materials, sustainability and ecology.  

“For me, this is a long-standing vision: of creating and manufacturing exclusive home décor items hallmarked by design excellence, fine craftsmanship and local manufacture in Sweden”, says Alexander Lervik, the creative
force behind Tingest.

About the Collection

“The idea for the Tingest Collection 2016
came to me one evening at the Royal Opera
House watching the ballet Swan Lake.
The gauzy effect of the ballet tutus triggered
my brain, giving me the idea of working
in perforated media.
I sketched the raster of the tulle in the
tutus in our studio as a jumping off point.
The result is six very distinctive
products, all with rastering as
the common motif”.

Astrid Olsson

Astrid Olsson was co-founder of the acclaimed fashion label Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, and more recently started the new label By The No but also work as a costume designer for stage. For Tingest, Astrid designed a plaid and tea towels called Morse.

“I’ve always been fascinated by heritage techniques, mechanical systems and man-machine interactions. The inspiration for the motif on the plaid and tea towels came from Morse code. A forgotten code, with a striking graphical look for conveying a secret message. Given that my main occupation is fashion design, and the complexities of turning textiles into apparel, the simplicity of a plaid or tea towel is both alarming and a release. Décor lasts longer than fashions, and the whole design process rests on the functionality. Personally, I live in a black-and-white world, and realised when the request came in from Alexander that I had a whole collection of plaids. All of them black and white.”

Broberg & Ridderstråle

Broberg & Ridderstråle are creative collaborators based in Stockholm, Sweden working in a mixed architecture and design practice. They strive to add emotional value to their design that communicates with the user through intuitive symbols and signifiers. They often draw inspiration from everyday life and seek to combine a rational approach with a ingenuity edge and the clash between past and present.

Over the years, the design duo has won a wide array of awards and distinctions; most recently voted Designer of the Year 2014 by Elle Decoration.

Broberg & Ridderstråle, commissioned by Tingest,
designed the Pythagoras candelabrum.


The art & design-duo Folkform was founded in 2005 and consists of Anna Holmquist and Chandra Ahlsell. They first entered the public spotlight with their experimental work with materials, notably Masonite in which flowers and foliage are pressed into the hardboard to create an innovative look and feel. Folkform enjoys an international reputation and has received several prestigious design awards.

Their work forms part of the permanent exhibition at Nationalmuseum, the national gallery of Sweden, The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo and other prestigious collections internationally.

Färg & Blanche

Stockholm-based design studio Färg & Blanche was founded in 2010 by the Swedish designer Fredrik Färg and French-born designer Emma Marga Blanche.

As a studio, they work across a wide variety of fields, collaborating with established Swedish furniture brands such as Gärsnäs, Zero and Design House Stockholm to name a few, as well as producing their own collections and limited artworks for galleries in Milan, New York and Tokyo. Known for their experimental ethos, in which each expression informs the other, they move effortlessly between exclusive hand-made one-off pieces and industrially-manufactured design, without ever losing their distinctive touch.

For Tingest, Färg & Blanche designed three products;
a candle holder, an Ipad sleeve and a wallet.

Peter Sellberg

Peter Sellberg is the designer behind the multidisciplinary design studio Logic Object Dept. The studio works with graphic design and product development in both art and commercial contexts. In his work, Peter homes in on a tension between stringency and playfulness, symmetry and asymmetry, the medium and production techniques to create concepts and objects that are perceived as both relevant and surprising.

“I was interested in this concept for quite some time; of creating an object reduced to its basic form in which the impact derives solely from strict typography and the medium itself.”

For Tingest, Peter Sellberg designed the
minimalistic money box, Förvaltaren.

Sanna Trotsman

Sanna Trotsman is a third-year interior architect and furniture design student. Her magazine rack “Tidningshängaren” features in the Tingest 2015 collection. She describes her creative process as follows:

“My design work is often inspired by natural phenomena, essentially because my roots are in the forests of northern Sweden. I aim to create object items and interiors with functionality. I like the design to hold something unexpected, like a hidden function. It’s also important to me that the design can be realised without compromising on its aesthetics – every last detail is carefully considered. Arriving at a final design requires a lot of preliminary exploration. My research phase is typically based on discussions, experimentation and photographs. This is the groundwork for the ultimate design.”

For Tingest, Sanna Trotsman designed
the magazine holder, Tidningshållaren.
