Johan Carlsson
Johan Carlsson architect, designer and principal founder of the award-winning exhibition design studio JAC Studios.
With an extensive scale and range of projects across both the public and private sphere, the work challenges the way we view interiors and exhibition design. With a consistent emphasis on storytelling across projects, the work strives to promote a fresh approach to the way design is curated and imagined.
Johan’s work stems from a focus of hand-craft and deep understanding of how things are made and produced. This is evident in the design of ‘House of Sweden’ where skilful detailing allows for a seamless integration of technology into bespoke furniture that celebrate Swedish craft heritage.
The recently completed Wadden Sea Centre, a permanent UNESCO exhibition invokes the sense of wonder and exploration in a unique site on the west coast of Denmark. The exhibition utilises a calm ‘uncluttered’ approach yet provides a clear and poignant message and dialogue with guests.
In the years 2002 - 2010 Johan Carlsson ran, together with graphic designer Pulsk Ravn, the gallery and design group RACA, which carried out several exhibitions in Denmark and participated actively in the international art scene.
The core aspect to developing a project is rooted in context, relationship to the site, history, user preferences and clients ambitions. This is coupled with respect and sensitivity for the existing, valued ethics and aesthetics. Johan has, through his work as a creative entrepreneur, practicing architect, teacher and lecturer, gained fluency in leadership and project management.
