The Swedish design partnership Claesson Koivisto Rune was founded in 1995 as an architectural office but is, in the classic Scandinavian way multi-disciplinary, which means that they practise both architecture and design. On the list of completed architectural projects are: Sfera Building culture house in Kyoto, the Swedish Ambassador’s residence in Berlin, Ingegerd Råman house and studio, Kjell A Nordström residence, Sony Music headquarters Stockholm, One Happy Cloud restaurant, Gucci Stockholm, Louis Vuitton Stockholm, Scandinavian Airlines Euroshop, Asplund shop. Currently, an exhibition entitled ’Claesson Koivisto Rune - The Models’ is showing at the Museum of Architecture, in Stockholm, until September 4th, 2005. Furniture/product designs by Claesson Koivisto Rune are produced by international companies such as Almedahls, Arflex Japan, Asplund, Boffi, Cappellini, David design, De Vecchi, Dune, E&Y, Franc franc, Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, Iren Uffici, Italamp, Living Divani, Lucente, Modus, Nola, Offecct, Sedie Friuli Fornasarig, Sfera Furniture, Skandiform, Skruf, Swedese, Väveriet among others.

"The work of Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune provides a recent example of the direction of Scandinavian design that will propel you out of the myth and into the present. It is certain that the path set out will have important consequences for the development of architecture and design in Sweden and beyond."
Terence Riley (From the monography "Claesson Koivisto Rune", GG, Barcelona, ISBN 84-252-1855-1.)

"Claesson Koivisto Rune are not creating indifferent copies of Aalto or Jacobsen or the other masters. They work with a totally new concept of design. When you see a product design of theirs you can easily imagine how it would fit into a specific architectural environment."
Giulio Cappellini (From the book "Mårten Claesson Eero Koivisto Ola Rune Furniture", ISBN 91-631-2488-2.)

"The architecture and furniture designs by Claesson Koivisto Rune are the most evident example of the way inventiveness, humour and the reversals of stock forms can produce new panoramas for our minds, and these panoramas can be expressed with an instinctive simplicity, not with a reductive and faint-hearted minimalism."
Italo Lupi (From the book "Nine Houses Claesson Koivisto Rune", ISBN 4-9901483-0-4 C0052.)
