GILLBERGA – THE STONE QUARRY
The latest stop on Folkform’s journey through the Swedish manufacturing industry has been Gillberga quarry. Having come across this quarry on Öland island in the Baltic Sea, a site where stone has been quarried for over a thou- sand years, Folkform wish to create something together with some of the few stone masons still in existence. The result is a series of candle- sticks made in limestone and hand-finished by stone mason Björn Johansson at Gillberga.
And a New series of furniture; Stone Veneer Tables. The table top is made of an entirely new stone material, where wafer-thin sheets of stone are cut and glued into a 1 mm thick stone top
