Web-TV series on design history: Nordiska Museet and Hallwylska Museet

Together with photographers Joakim Ståhl and Malin Hoelstad, I produced a series of web-TV shows on design history for the Swedish newspaper, Svenska Dagbladet. This 7-episode series focuses on home entertainment and design, and was recorded at Nordiska Museet, Stockholm, and Hallwylska Museet, Stockholm. In each episode, a curator and I investigates material culture that ranges from 19th century asparagus cutlery, wine glasses and dinner menus, to The Book of Death (1816), 1950s TV-parafenalia, and 18th century farmhouse furniture, to tell a story about what people did for fun at home throughout history.

One episode is available here, the rest can be found on svd.se.
