Siri Svedborg graduated with a bachelor’s degree in interior architecture and furniture design from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm 2020. In her graduation project, Svedberg analyzed the history and tradition of the Swedish Folk Furniture called allmoge, where both the functionality and ornamental elements where equally important in the development.
The result was a collection of furniture called Ornamental but Basic, consisting of a table, a stool, and a chair with legs and back that’s been bent into a rounded shape. An armchair, Hulda, from the collection was shown at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in 2020, where it was chosen as one of the online magazine Sight Unseen’s favorite objects.
The chair from Svedborg's degree project Ornamental but Basic was a part of the Ex-Works 2020 exhibition at the Museum of Furniture Studies in 2020 and was later acquired to the museums permanent collection.
In 2021 Svedborg was the recipient of the Shooting Star Award by Elle Decoration. Since graduation, Svedborg works as freelance designer and interior architect, based in Stockholm.
