Experience Craftsmanship

Svenskt Tenn collaborates with 27 workshops in Sweden. Every day, carpenters, glassblowers, sewing professionals, metalsmiths, ceramicists, and basket weavers go to work to craft the designs that make up our product range.

It's genuine, small-scale craftsmanship, often passed down through generations. Now, we invite you to experience it first-hand at our store on Strandvägen 5 in Stockholm. In conjunction with Svenskt Tenn’s first centenary, we are inviting selected local producers to share more about the craftsmanship behind some of our most iconic products.

On Friday, 3 and Saturday 4 May, Oskar Hammar from Humstorp Metall visits the store at Strandvägen 5 to show the craftsmanship behind and production of Josef Frank's iconic Candleholder Vänskapsknuten (The Knot of Friendship).

Humstorp Metall in Västergötland produces some of Svenskt Tenn’s most iconic and advanced pewter and brass objects. The workshop was initiated by Oskar Hammar in 2011, who took over part of the production from his parents' company, "Skaraborgs Hantverk," founded in 1978.

The next event is on Saturday, 23 March, with O.H. Sjögren, one of Sweden’s most established furniture manufacturers, visiting the store at Strandvägen 5 in Stockholm. They will upholster an armchair and decorate a chair with upholstery studs on site.

O.H. Sjögren's furniture factory in Tranås has produced upholstered furniture for Svenskt Tenn since 1982. It is a time-consuming process which requires great craftsmanship. The factory was founded in 1902 by Oskar Herbert Sjögren, who early on specialised in the production of sofas and armchairs. Over time, the production has evolved, but the original idea of the highest possible quality remains the same today, over a hundred years since its inception.
