SKULTUNA 1607 - For over 400 years the lustre of Skultuna brass has illuminated the world. With classic designs from the time of our founder King Karl IX of Sweden, as well as with ground breaking antiquities of tomorrow by leading international designers. And herein lies the formula to why today Skultuna can be found at leading department stores all around the world, has won a number of international design awards and regularly exhibits at the leading international design fairs - we have always been, and will always be, one part traditional craftsmanship and one part modernity.
OPAQUE OBJECTS x MARTIN BERGSTRÖM
Inspired by the atmosphere of space and the plant Henbane. For Opaque Object, Martin Bergström wanted to intertwine Skultuna's 400 years of history and tradition. He researched Skultuna's rich archives and found the history of the place and the surroundings around Skultuna and got an answer as to why King Charles IX chose this particular place to build the brass mill.
The mystique of the burial sites from the Iron Age, the proximity to the Svartå river and the deep forests, the history and traditions around the mill inspired him to connect it with his own design and aesthetics. The archives led Martin Bergström, among other things, to a meteorite that struck a few miles from Skultuna.
