Petrus Palmér is CEO and Founder of Hem. Petrus conceived the brand in 2014 with the aim of democratizing quality design. Hem works with some of the world’s leading designers to conceive and manufacture high quality, original works, making it available to a greater public for a good price by cutting out the middleman.
Petrus began his career as a designer as one of three founding members of Form Us With Love, a Stockholm-based design studio that quickly made a name for itself through its striking designs. Next, he turned his attention to the creating of TID, a brand with a line of durable and timeless watches, and BAUX, a design-oriented line of acoustic panels and tiles – two companies he’s still involved with to this day. In addition to managing Hem, he is also chairman of the board of Design Sweden, an organization set up with the purpose to support, nurture and enable Swedish designers all across the globe.
Join Petrus in a conversation exploring the future of furniture on June 9 at ROW DTLA. Spaces are limited. This event is free, but RSVP is required.
