The Housecat

An inspirational architectural exhibition on the theme of Nordic Essence

Assignment
Create an inspirational architectural exhibition on the theme of Nordic Essence (autumn 2015) for the Formex Interior Design and Gift Fair.

Solution

The concept idea sprouted from the Nordic countries’ tradition of craft making and architecture as well as the typical lifestyle here. The result was a 5 x 10 m Housecat built from 2309 moving boxes.

The concept also included a craft festival with some of Sweden’s foremost craftsmen on site. The Housecat was created to investigate “What is the Nordic region today?”

Results

Word about the Housecat spread like wildfire across social media and it became a favourite talking point of the daily newspapers.
