Usine

Bringing the factory to life



Based in an old sausage factory space where the interior charm had been long lost to the confined cubicles of the Swedish IRS (Skattemyndigheten), internationally renowned Interior Designer and Architect Richard Lindvall elegantly brought the space back to its prior form. Space was being transformed by using almost 50 tonnes of concrete and exposing raw materials and texture and deserved an original name: Usine. The French word for Mill or Factory.

As an homage to minimalistic typography, cubism, and the old Bauhaus school, the identity was based on one single typeface in two widths throughout the sic sections: Bistro 38, Poche 36, Gallery, Take Away, Conference and Bar.

Based on the design principles of the Bauhaus era, Richard Lindvall set out to create a space beyond the ordinary and invited Vaengad to be a major part of that journey. By first ripping out the old textures and filling them up with concrete, steel, plants, and glass the industrial feeling was elevated even more. Hence the name: Usine, which in french means exactly that: Factory
