Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies – Graduation Ceremony 2015
Fourteen graduates from Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies received their diplomas at the school’s annual graduation ceremony last week. The location was fitting – the Stockholm Concert Hall, where much of the furniture was designed by Carl Malmsten himself.
Of course the stars of the show were the graduates:
- Mattias Bergqvist, Julia Colliander, Victor Olsson Julia Prytz and Rebecka Öberg (BA in Furniture Design)
- Martin Alexandersson and Anna Franzén (BA in Cabinetmaking)
- Charlotte Byrne, Stina Eriksson, Gruv Stina Hellquist, Anna Mähönen, Linda Palm and Anna Ringaby (BA in Furniture Upholstery)
- Lauri Vaher (BA in Furniture Conservation)
Four graduates got to enter the stage a second time, as recipients of scholarships from John Mattson’s Memorial Trust:
- Mattias Bergqvist
- Martin Alexandersson
- Gruv Stina Hellquist
- Malin Lindberg
The scholarships are awarded for graduation projects of exceptional quality, and include SEK 30,000 per project. At the ceremony, the trust was represented by John Mattson’s daughters, Ann-Sofie Mattson and Kerstin Skarne.
