Per’s restlessness as a designer Per Brickstad’s design ethic can be neatly summed up as: simply push a button and play. As the force behind the creative direction of Transparent, constantly working on the overall lifetime value of his products, evolving the look and feel of Transparent audio. Natural beauty and functionality are subtly integrated into all of his creations. When your speaker blends in, the sound jumps out.
Per met Martin at university, and it was here that their dynamic crystallised. Martin would sleep on his couch a lot because he lived further away from the city, but Per soon realised that he had dreams to match his own. In a nutshell, Martin’s big ambitions would be the perfect compliment to Per’s impeccable design knowhow. Per’s own passion for design started with an interest in Swedish functionalism and product/furniture designer Naoto Fukusawa, but now encompasses Norm Architects and British sculptor/fashion artist Faye Toogood. After all, it’s pretty useful to keep an eye on key movements in architecture and fashion, if you want your products to blend in naturally with the home.
