FARG & Blanche
- Swedish, French
Fredrik Färg (Swedish) and Emma Marga Blanche (French) started a design studio together based in Stockholm. Fredrik has a background as a cabinetmaker, but has always nurtured a strong interest in fashion, in particular in the work of the British-Turkish designer Hussein Chalayan and the late Alexander McQueen. Emma grew up surrounded by art – her mother is an artist and art teacher. As a studio, they work across a wide variety of fields, collaborating with established Swedish furniture brands such as Gärsnäs, Zero and Design House Stockholm to name a few, as well as producing their own collections and limited art pieces for galleries in Milan, New York and Tokyo. They represent a mix of Swedish creative strength and French conceptualism. Known for their experimental stance, where each expression informs the other, they effortlessly move between the exclusive handmade one-off and the industrially produced, without ever losing their distinctive touch. Their RE-cover chairs are the perfect example of this philosophy. They are represented in the collection at the National Museum in Stockholm.
