Two projects exemplify Stenberg’s work with Elmo: The Sarek colour collection and the Madrid showroom. The Sarek collection, debuting in the Nordic market, draws inspiration from Sweden’s biggest national park and high mountain area, offering a palette that evokes hues from the grey skies, stones, and sands to the saffron-yellow lichen on the ground.
The Madrid showroom, conceived under Stenberg’s architectural expertise, stands as a tangible embodiment of Elmo’s commitment to materiality and craftsmanship. Architecturally, Stenberg’s showroom design thoughtfully guides visitors through curated experiences with Elmo’s leather. It’s an artistic journey where observers gradually uncover layers of sensory engagement, all within a relaxed setting that marries Spanish warmth with Scandinavian coolness.
Mattias Stenberg’s journey into the world of Elmo tells a story of materiality, nature, and is a thoughtful collaboration that’s changing the way we perceive and display leather.
