Michael and Thomas Asplund founded the Asplund Gallery to exhibit furniture as objects of fine art, and vice versa. Michael, originally an art dealer, had long thought about combining art and design within a business venture. In 1990, Thomas Asplund left his job as a banker to team up with his brother. With their unconventional backgrounds, the duo brought fresh ideas to the industry. Seeing furniture as objects of art was a new way of thinking that quickly caught on. The Asplund brothers asked Jonas Bohlin to design the original Asplund Gallery in Stockholm. With its concrete floors and white washed walls, it was the quintessence of Scandinavian light. The gallery soon became a stage for contemporary Swedish design. The Asplund brothers began to develop their own line of furniture and design pieces under the name EDITION ASPLUND. Moreover, the ASPLUND Collection is today created together with a myriad of renowned Swedish and International designers. The production process, from sketch to finished product, is a collaboration between the designer and Creative Director.
