Chen Karlsson is a Stockholm-based design company founded by two families: Chen and Karlsson. With inspiration from the Scandinavian and Asian design traditions, they design and distribute homewares that enrich everyday life. Chen Karlsson’s products are produced by carefully selected industries and craftsmen in Scandinavia and Asia.
Hung-Ming Chen, Chen-Yen Wei, Tina Karlsson and Johan Karlsson meet at Konstfack University of Craft and Design, Stockholm, in 2008. The first collaboration resulted in the joint show ”Two families and dog” at Greenhouse, Stockholm Furniture Fair. Two years and as many kids later the collaboration evolved into a joint venture: Chen Karlsson AB. Chen Karlsson is based in Stockholm, but frequently collaborates with family and friends near and far. One of their first and most innovative products is the pendant lamp Favourite Things, a combined lamp and display cabinet.
