Furniture designer Matilda Haglund studied a bachelor’s at LiU Malmstens in Lidingö from where she graduated in 2022. In collaboration with the Swedish furniture manufacturer Wigells in Malmbäck, Haglund examined how designers and manufacturers, through creating new furniture out of waste material from the production, can prolong material life cycles and thereby reduce the amount of waste in the furniture industry. The degree project called Ellor – to fix a broken circle resulted in three pieces of furniture based on three different concepts. The Rational table, the Experimental bench and the Unconventional stool.
Ellor – “to fixa a broken circle” was shown at the Ex-Works 2022 exhibition at the Museum of Furniture Studies in 2022.
