The Black Box party at Sven-Harry's art museum in Stockholm. Nice food, huh?

Just in time for helping me forget my winter blah’s, I went to a party at a new art museum in Stockholm: Sven-Harry’s. First of all, don’t you love the name? Sven-Harry’s sounds like a great bar or cafe name, not like the konstmuseum or art museum that it is. It was opened last year by architect Sven-Harry Karlsson and houses his own collection of art that was 30 years in the making.


A little champagne, anyone?

The museum also features a gallery and restaurant and interestingly, the permanent collection is on the top floor in a space that recreates rooms in Sven-Harry’s classic 1700s manor house, thus making you somehow feel like you are right at home. The exterior and other floors of the museum are uniquely modern with lots of glass and brass.

Sven-Harry's permanent collection is displayed in his "home."

By the way, I was at the museum on Monday night for an equally cool purpose: a party to celebrate creativity and thinking inside the box for inspiration. The event was put on by Iggesund paper company for their Black Box Project.  It was a wonderful combination of art, food and champagne. And it was definitely a good way to spend a winter night.

Sven-Harry’s is located in Vasaparken in central Stockholm. I will share a few cool photos of the rooftop terrace tomorrow.
