Gustaf Westman Objects is a place where I, Gustaf Westman, collect all the objects I made the latest years. Feel free to just look around, the idea about this place is to inspire. All objects that you find here can be made to order. If you are interested in anything, just ask.

Here's a little about me:

I grew up in a small place called Dalsjöfors in Sweden. Dalsjöfors is defined by the disused textile factories and I am defined by that place. It’s a very open minded and calm place where people support you to be who you are and what you want to be. That’s been an important part of me becoming a the one I am today. 

This pic is from our traditional outdoor excursion my family does every year two days after Christmas. In Dalsjöfors, right by Dalsjön. 

Between 2015-2018 I studied architecture in Gothenburg. After my years in Gothenburg I where an intern at Appell Arkitektkontor. During that time I started to experiment more with furnitures and after my first own project, an office for a Swedish PR agency. When I got the chance to design a wood table, I instantly understood that’s the right track for me.

In the beginning I made bigger projects where I needed a more holistic approach and take care of all parts of the interior. As I mentioned I made an office for a PR agency, but also a hair salon and a showroom for a Swedish fashion company. In these projects I always made sure to make special designed furnitures, that’s when I learned more about that part and the ideas and techniques I came up during these projects are very important for the work I do now.

This pic is from the hair salon called Frank I made in 2019. It's the last project I made before I started to focus on my own furnitures.

In the beginning I made bigger projects where I needed a more holistic approach and take care of all parts of the interior. As I mentioned I made an office for a pr agency, a hair salon and a showroom for a Swedish fashion company for example. In these projects I always made sure to make special designed furnitures, that’s when I learned more about that part and the ideas and techniques I came up during these projects are very important for the work I do now.

The most common question I get is where my inspiration comes from. For me that’s a very hard one to answer. Of course, I get a lot of inspiration from interesting people, art history and that kind of stuff. But for me it’s more about my needs to stay motivated and inspired. I need to do my running, listen to music and most importantly, be among my friends. So, below there are some pics from my life that I look back at when I need inspiration. Also, I’ll add a link to the Spotify list I listen to when I’m working.
