Note has been cultivating ideas since 2008, when Johannes Carlström and Cristiano Pigazzini joined forces to form an interior design and architecture firm in Stockholm. A decade later, they operate something very different – and much more interesting. Over the years, Note has evolved to encompass any and every area of design, expanding beyond buildings and interiors to include products, graphic and identity design, design strategy and just about any activity that requires a convention-busting creative approach. Idea-led and entirely non-hierarchical, the studio now comprises a team of 14 designers who pool their talents as the needs of the project – and their own curiosity – requires. In the last five years, Note has grown to become one of the most internationally admired names in Scandinavian design, working with the likes of Menu, Camper and Fogia, and taking home a succession of accolades – including a Salone del Mobile award for their installation with Magis and two Wallpaper* Design Awards for their product collaborations with Sancal and KAZA Concrete in 2018.
Note is a dream client for Zetteler. We are, of course, huge fans of their work and innovative, plough-your-own-furrow approach to design, but the other thing that makes the studio stand out is the warmth, conviviality, passion and self-effacing good nature of everyone working in it. It’s a pleasure to be supporting Note with their diverse portfolio of projects – especially the hotly anticipated contributions to Stockholm Design Week and Milan 2019.
