Plank is designed by the duo Frida Ottemo Fröberg and Marie-Louise Gustafsson from Sweden. Frida and Marie-Louise both create conceptually pragmatic designs, often characterized by a combination of elements of personal passion, playfulness, functionality and humour.

Frida Ottemo Fröberg (born 1976) has a master’s in interior architecture & furniture design from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Frida was first acknowledged at Salone Satellit in Milan 2006. A design reporter described her as ”one of those project hungry young designers who set out along her own course.” After gaining experience from various assignments in cities such as London and New York and numerous exhibitions around the world she set up the design studio Love Twice Design + Architecture in Stockholm, where she is now the owner and manager. Examples of her previous works include the rocking stool “Limpan” for the Swedish design producer Materia.

Marie-Louise Gustafsson (1967) has a master’s degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London. Besides that, she has studied design in Japan and Stockholm. Many of her designs have been exhibited worldwide. One of Marie-Louise’s many previous products that has received broad international attention is the urban bicycle basket Carrie produced by Design House Stockholm. Other assignments of hers include work for well-known players such as Nola, Eurobib and Lammhults Library Design. She currently works as a freelance designer in Stockholm, both with self–initiated projects and commissioned work.
