Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom are the design duo TAF Architects. The Studio was founded in Stockholm in 2002 and works in product and interior design all around the world.
The aim of the Swedish duo is to make every day a bit less everyday with design: a new, fresh glimpse on the objects we use. This approach is realized by TAF Architects with subtle, but still effective changes of classic products. The result is often humorous and encourages our reflection about a simple product.
Thereby TAF Architects rely on traditional virtues: The usage of wood is a central aspect in the Gustafson and Ståhlbom works, since natural material is an important part of the Scandinavian design tradition ever since. TAF Architects are convinced that Nordic design with their social values and classic materials will keep the importance for a long time, and this is why they continuously add interesting new aspects to everyday furniture.
The success of this approach didn’t take long to come into effect: products by TAF Architects have already been exposed in the MoMA in New York and are part of permanent expositions of the Danish Design Museum in Copenhagen.
