TAS is a visionary Award winning Art and Design practice based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Closely collaborating with JAC Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark.

With more than 20 years of experiences we create work at the intersection of Design / Architecture, Art and the Performative arts. Projects range from spatial commissions for Museums, Private and Public spaces such as Exhibitions, Scenic works and Artistic assignments to Curation, Project management, Feasibility studies and educational Workshops. The projects spans from permanent works to temporary and exploratory.

Tove Alderin Studio is renowned for creating memorable, engaging and meaningful experiences, blending the qualities of Design, Art and the Performative arts. TAS embrace transdisciplinary junctions that allows for meetings between unexpected fields of knowledge and materiality. Looking for new encounters that can nurture and extend perceptions, create colliding, luminous and elaborating experiences - enabling new perspectives. Our work is founded upon artistic research and exploratory methods, practical and theoretical.  TAS create meaningful and informed design experiences based on the spatial prerequisites, data, facts, movements and artifacts.
