“I look forward to inspire and be inspired, meeting new people in another culture”, says Åsa Holmén founder of åh! Betong och Återbruksdesign. Her company started in February 2014 after leaving another career behind. She now follows her passion and designs, produces and sells interior products for home & gardens in concrete and recycling materials. Åsa started using Moroccan tiles in some of her work and will partner with artisans in Akerate, Morocco.

Together we will include design & manufacture products that combine Moroccan artisan crafts with the Nordic style as one part of our project Common Ground. “I do what I love and I am happy to share the knowledge. Together we can build a sustainable society and lifestyle that I cherish,” says Åsa.
