Pantone Emerald or Saint Patrick’s?

Without a doubt this was one of my favorite spaces in Stockholm: the children's workshop at the Arkitekturmuseet. It's bold, it's green and it smells like craft glue and linoleum. What more can you wish for?

Besides the supercool lampshades, I really like the chairs with one "ear" (or raised hand?):

My first internship ever was at a Museum in Denmark where I also got to work with the younger visitors in the workshop. We decorated the space with sketches and drawings, but it certainly didn't look as good as this one!

These kids are so lucky, don't you think?

  1. j'adore … ce vert est magnifique, lumineux, plein de vie et d’énergie! et ces chaises sont trop mignonnes avec la petite patte en l'air!
    on est sur la même longueur d’onde puisque moi aussi, j'avais fait la liaison entre St P et Pantone (mais uniquement sur FBK ;-)

  2. Lovely room! And the chairs are very cool. Does it have any effect being in a room with the same color all day?? I wonder, since it has been proven that color does affect us.

    1. I felt great for the time I was in this green room ;o) I'm sure it has some kind of influence! I'm always happy to return to our yellow living room…

    1. Merci Geraldine! Green, or at least the Pantone Emerald green is the color of 2013, so you're totally up-to-date ;o) You too, enjoy your week!

  3. I love this…. not the idea of a colour of the year bullshit.

    I simply love this because it's beautifully designed, smells of cratsglue:-), is child- friendly and because the children can excel in that space….
