It would seem that it isn't just Barack Obama that browses the pages of Design Trawler. This week I was invited to lunch at the residence of the Swedish Ambassador in London [No, there were no Ferrero Rochers. Yes, the Ambassador did spoil us] The purpose of the lunch was to discuss Swedish design with a selection of Stockholm's finest, presided over by Prince Carl Philip of Sweden.
The 33 year old royal studied graphic design in both Stockholm and at the Rhode Island School of Design. Since then he's designed cutlery, calendars, cd covers and an architectural fireplace guard which resides with the Ambassador in London. Refreshing to see somebody with the wold at their disposal take such an interest in design. Unsurprising perhaps, that it's a Scandinavian somebody.
