Ulla Christiansson
Ulla Christiansson’s work is a terrific example of classic Scandinavian Modernism, or as she puts it herself: “Objects made for people who like to live with them for a long time”. After choosing between a career in fashion or as a goldsmith, Ulla ended up with a degree in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. She runs the company Christiansson & Pettersson Design with her husband, and has designed tableware and furniture for numerous companies, as well as interiors for banks, embassies and hotels. The Swedish Embassy in Beijing is a good example of her work. Ulla has been part of Design House Stockholm’s network since the beginning, and designed many of our key products such as the Globe glass & vase, the Victor vases and candlesticks, the Arto vase and the Loop cutlery collection - for which she received the Excellent Swedish Design award in 1998.
