“…The furniture is “soft” while maintaining the elegance of Japanese design. Despite the integration of both Norse and Japanese cultures, it maintains meticulous functionality and efficiency. But! It was important to maintain a Zen sense of quiet while life is lived at home and enveloped by nature.”

Influenced by the Nordic design tradition combined with a Japanese sensitivity to aesthetics and handmade elements, we would like to introduce you, our readers, to a project that caught our attention: a vacation home on one of Sweden's beaches, in a rocky archipelago.

Inbal Pinto and Etgar Keret have joined forces for the first time and created a work that does not fit established categories –  film-story-illustrations-movement-game-music and above all – an exciting aesthetic.

Enter the film, and we have no doubt that by its end you will agree with us – Using words... can only do harm. Why?
