Niklas Runesson (b. 1985) is a self-taught craftsman and carpenter raised in Småland.
With a legacy of three generations of woodworkers/engineers who were active from 1945-2000 in the manufacture of turned toy parts, Runesson takes the legacy into the present. Runesson creates his objects freely from his head with simple sketches like memo notes. Runesson's inspiration comes from nature but also fragments of the unknown/imagination. A mantra that often comes back when he wants to explain the feeling "friendly creature", a recurring theme.
