In 1957, the designer Björn Dahlström was born in the Swedish capital Stockholm. Dahlström gained international fame with his furniture and industrial designs. His designs were characterised by powerful graphics, which he combined with soft and fundamental shapes.
Dahlström has worked with big names such as Iittala, Kasthall and Atlas Copco. For Iittala, for example, he designed the Iittala Tools cookware set. This was done in collaboration with a number of well-known chefs. In 2001 Dahlström won the Torsten & Wanja Söderberg design award: quite an achievement. His works are also on display in various museums in London and Stockholm.
