Swedish for “the carpentry,” Snickeriet was founded to allow designers and cabinet-makers to work and create on their own terms, while maintaining control over production and distribution of their products. Co-founded by designer Karl-Johan Hjerling and master cabinet-maker Gunnar Dahl in 2011, their studio is based in Stockholm. Snickeriet approaches each piece as a standalone project, choosing not to produce collections of furniture. Their aim is to achieve a standard that extends beyond the mere aesthetic of a finished product, while honoring the conceptual design and production cycles. Carried out in totality by Snickeriet, each piece is presented on an individual basis, and only when the team feels the product is complete.
