Make It Malmö : Designed and Curated by TypeO
Multidisciplinary design studio TypeO has curated the interior of two rooms at the temporary hotel concept Make it Malmö, a project by Form/Design Center.
The project consists of two parts, Högdager and Lågdager, in which local design plays first fiddle in a bid to promote the creative scene of the southern Swedish region of Skåne, and Sweden's third largest city Malmö.
'Högdager', the first half of the project, translates to highlight. It is inspired by long and bright summer nights where dramatic colors change at dusk. It also draws from the cobbled alleys in the old town neighbourhood in Malmö, where small pastels houses are lined in a rainbow.
In contrasts, 'Lågdager' translates to shadow. It is subdued and mystical. The selection of industrial materials such as steel, concrete, stone and glass is a nod to Malmö’s past as an industrial city.
