Glimpt is Mattias Rask and Tor Palm, two designers who strive to work with artisans from around the world. Their design method generates products that could never have been conceived back home in Sweden. When working like they do, they set what they usually see aside and experience something completely different. The human is seen as an explorer, and that is what they see themselves as, designers on an adventure exploring the world through design and crafts.
When meeting people that they normally don´t, something interesting and engaging takes place, an exchange of knowledge and experience. The
materials and methods used are often simple and unrefined which leads to a hands-on design process. The knowledge of the craftsmen has been passed down through generations, connecting the products with the cultural history and origins of each community. This is Glimpt’s source of inspiration.
