Found Objects and a Desk

BY FRIDA ERSON
@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Frida Ersson is a recently-graduated student from Malmsten's college - one of the finest schools of cabinetmaking in the world. Her projects have entailed a fair degree of traveling, which serves as a way of lifitng inspiration for her work. Each trip taken would result in a plethora of found objects that would later see themselves incorporated into her final project; a glorious investment of time to create a stunning piece of craftsmanship - her desk.
