Take Place!

Take Place, is ten works of art that appear in unexpected places around Kulturhuset, Stockholm. This explorative project uses art to demonstrate that access is ultimately about democracy. Shouldn’t everyone be able to take part of our common society, so we can meet and influence it together?
We especially liked the work by Jacob Dahlgren. Lose yourself, meet new faces, see, feel and hear as you wander through his cub of colourful silk ribbons.

See this exhibition at Kulturhuset, Stockholm until June 13, 2010.

Come Play With Us! Simply a Colourful Play...

We had Gustav, 7 months, to come over and play with us today. Once he got the hang of it, he was able to come up with some great ideas on how to use us. He looked at us, felt us, tasted us, sniffed us, banged us on the floor to see if we made some noises. We managed to keep his attention for quite a long time. We had a really fun time! Then he fell asleep, and so did we! Yawn!!

A friendly give-away!

Did you know that Småkompisar can be used as a promotional product, and as a corporate gift during events, seminars or conferences? A company logotype can be embroidered onto the fabric, or appear on a tag sewn into the seam. It is also possible to order your own screen-printed fabric, or even packaging with your company’s own layout.
