TAF Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom
TAF Architects and design studio was founded by Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom after they both graduated at Konstfack, MFA 2002.
The studio has gained both Swedish and international attention and success with projects in the areas of interior design and exhibition design as well as a variety of products for various reputed furniture producers.
TAF has exhibited at MoMA and have objects in the permanent collection at the National Museum in Stockholm, Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg and the Danish Design Museum in Copenhagen. Gabriella and Mattias was given the award ”Designer of the Year” by the magazine FORM in 2017.
The use and the questioning of references is something that is constantly up to date in TAF’s work process. The background and inspiration for most of the studio’s work comes from an entirely different and often unexpected contexts. A piece of candy becomes a table, a rope to be a rug and a hoodie becomes an armchair.
