Hemvist limited edition pieces of furniture by Alexander Lervik

 

Swedish designer Alexander Lervik completes the limited edition collection of furniture ‘Hemvist’ constructed out of leftover solid wood. The compilation will be exhibited at his own Unikat Gallery located in Stockholm and, like the rest of the expositions hosted, will present experimental unique products of delicate craftsmanship signed by the creative.

 

The designer draws from the Swedish artistic heritage and local craftsmanship to compose a set of chairs, benches, and tables, recalling ‘Just over 60 miles north of Gävle, at the same height as Skellefteå and in the middle of the Västerbottnian forests lies Norsjö. The company ‘Drömtrappor’ has existed here since 1922. I remember the first time I visited the factory, it is the only time in my 25 years in the furniture industry that I got goosebumps from seeing how the production is done. In front of me, furniture craftsmen worked with materials that mostly come from the forests outside the factory’. Following this sustainable design approach, the collection makes use of leftover wood produced from another project of the creator’s.

The original design by Alexander Lervik forms a staircase focusing on the intricate details of the joining parts and will be exhibited at Stockholm Furniturefair 2023. The leftover wood produced during the manufacture of the staircase composition is repurposed in the construction of the limited edition pieces of furniture forming an armchair, a small table and a bench. The ‘Hemvist’ set of furniture apply a building technique that uses pegs and wedges to conjoin the wooden pieces together. ‘In this furniture collection, I have simplified the shape to a graphic simplicity with a strong identity’, shares the designer.
