BJORN DAHLSTROM: Designer
Stockholm: Arvinius, 2001

This book showcases close to forty examples of Dahlstrom designs, everything from cutlery and furniture to a pneumatic drill for Atlas Copco and an advanced bike for Skeppshult. The concept of this book originated in an exhibition of Bjorn Dahlstrom's work held at the Nordic embassies' "Felleshus" in Berlin in the autumn of 2000. From Berlin, the exhibition transferred to the Form/Design Center in Malmo in the spring of 2001, and then an expanded version was held at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm.
