Architect Per Öberg was educated at Lund University in 1974–1979. After several internships he began working at the Tengbom architectural firm, before founding Per Öberg Architects AB in 1983. He has created environments in the Liljevalchs art gallery, at the Grand Hotel and at Sturebadet in Stockholm, among others.
For Svenskt Tenn, Per Öberg has created two iron coffe tables; one round shaped where the tabletop rests on a stand inspired by antiquity’s meander form. The other table is rectangular (Nizza) which is a further development on a table he designed for his private apartment in Nice. His inspiration came from the wrought-iron furniture typically found in the south of France.
