Asplund is a Swedish design company who sees furniture as objects of art. Asplund was founded in 1990 by Michael Asplund, originally an art dealer, and his brother Thomas Asplund, a former banker. Their contrasting backgrounds brought fresh attitude and ideas to the Swedish design scene.
The Asplund collection has won many international design awards for their reinterpretation of classic Nordic design. The furniture is functional, timeless and their pure simple design language is at the same time extremely elegant.
Besides Swedish designers like Claesson Koivisto Rune, Borberg & Ridderstråle, Thomas Eriksson and Thomas Sandell, Asplund has collaborated with various international designers including Tom Dixon, Jasper Morrison, Daniel Rybakken, Piero Lissoni and Marc Newsom.
Despite its innovative and international approach, Asplund also believes in traditions and the quality of local production; the majority of its collections are still manufactured in Sweden. The collection consists of storage furniture, carpet collection as well as accessories, and is designed for both the home and contract market.
