Kasper Strömman is a Finnish graphic designer and illustrator. Before arriving to Klovharu Strömman didn’t have any expectations regarding the summer cottage of Tove Jansson built in 1963-1964.
“I must say that in particular this cottage was especially nice, even if I didn’t have any expectations regarding it. In pictures it looks so modest. Which is kind of is, but in a thought-through way. That you can sit at the table and look out of three different windows made it magical.”
Watch the series Stugor – episode in advance here. Tove Jansson’s niece Sophia Jansson is also in the episode. Klovharu is featured from 16:12 forward.
