Fredrik Stenberg studied architecture at Chalmers University of Technology from 1994 to 1997. After graduation Stenberg worked at White Architects and in 1999 he founded the art and design collective Uglycute together with Markus Degerman (artist), Jonas Nobel (artist) and Andreas Nobel (interior architect, furniture deisgner).
Uglycute became a part of a generation of artists and designers that used their work to discuss taste, quality, class, gender, and politics. Due to the members' different professions they came to work theoretically and practically as well as in pedagogy. Their first solo exhibition was held at the art gallery Marabouparken in Sundbyberg during 2012.
In 2014 Uglycute designed their first armchair, the stackable Stalker for Woodstockholm, that had a fluorescent paint that made It glow in the dark. Stalker was presented at the Stockholm Design Week the same year. Together with Uglyute, Stenberg has made interior architecture for companies, museums, and art galleries such as Cheap Monday and for the Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts and the art gallery Magasin III in Stockholm. Since the 2010’s it is Stenberg together with Jonas Nobel who mainly works with Uglycute.
