Stockholm apartment by Tekla Evelina Severin

This table, by Stockholm-based designer Nick Ross, is “made from one solid marble block and it’s like this fading paint which shows the marble structure. When you think of all the marble that is in Greece, the ruins, you think that they’re white but they were actually painted back in the day. The marble itself wasn’t considered the final surface. So this is a play on that.” The canvas behind, Heckscher explains, is an old “birthday gift to myself: When I turned 35 I had this big party and put up two canvases on the wall, had a lot of paint, and offered everybody wine and booze and then this came out… this is how it looked around 4 in the morning. I have a lot of friends who are in design or art but when you see the other friends that are in finance or law, they never get to paint, and it’s fun to see them. They just go berserk.”
