on your feet

Industrial designer Marie-Louise Gustafsson gives the term 'happy feet' a whole new meaning. One part utility and two parts play and whimsy, Gustaffon's Mop Flip Flop and Mr. Brushy designs put the 'fun' back in functional. The Stockholm-based artist invents and designs home wares that truly bring to light the small pleasures in life. From a mobile bathtub to a beanbag computer chair on wheels, her designs uncover a sense of novelty and discovery in routine activity. Gustafsson reinvents the typically mudane day-to-day moments.

Gustafsson received her Masters of Arts in product design from the Royal College of Art in London and works as a freelance designer, both with self–initiated projects and commissioned work. She has exhibited all over the world, including New York City, Los Angeles, Berlin, Milan, London, Seoul and Tokyo.
