Stefan Borselius

Stefan Borselius was born in Höllviken, at the southwestern tip of Sweden. He has studied design and furniture making for a total of eleven years. First, he studied woodwork, just like his grandfather and grandfather, who were skilled cabinetmakers. He then took, among other things, a bachelor’s degree in furniture design at Malmstenskolan and a master’s degree from Konstfack in Stockholm. In 2002 he established his own design company and since then his work has focused on furniture and interior design – everything from chairs, lamps, and room dividers to carpets and textiles. Borselius has collaborated with some of Scandinavia’s most reputable design and furniture companies.

Stefan Borselius has built a reputation for developing innovative solutions for materials, form, and function. His ambition is to find new solutions to old problems and to develop new products for how we live our lives today. He still considers himself a craftsman and views sketching and model-making as just as important as working on the computer. With his craft background, Stefan Borselius sees even the smallest details as an integral and important part of the design. His interest in new materials and techniques together with an open mind and knowledge of both traditional craftsmanship and modern industrial processes often result in unique and innovative products. Inspiration comes from both daily life and deep analytical thinking, from happy accidents, materials, functions, and unsolved problems. Stefan Borselius has won several design prizes and awards and some of his products are represented in the National Museum’s collections in Stockholm.
