Hanna Werning’s Interior Design for Biograf Ugglan

Exploring the portfolio of Swedish designer Hanna Werning is a real delight for anyone who is enamoured of colour. Her work encompasses just about every tone in the spectrum and is employed in gorgeous patterns on various surfaces. Quite understandably it was her recent interior design and identity for Biograf Ugglan that really caught my eye. Although I have been to my fair share of stunning art deco cinema houses, Werning’s concept for Ugglan (which means owl in Swedish – how perfect!) visually captures the idea of the film medium as a form composed of colour, light and movement. The kinetic wall display and brightly-coloured chairs make up one of the most dynamic uses of cinematic viewing space that I have seen. It’s so good I can imagine that design fans would be waiting for the house lights to come back on after the film so they could take another look at the interior. I would love to visit one day.
