Anna Elzer Oscarson is a graduate of HDK – School of Design and Crafts, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. After receiving her degree, she has spent most of her time as a freelance, specialising in patterns and utility goods. From 2007 to 2008, Anna was employed at the wallpaper design studio at Boråstapeter.

Sample design work:

The wallpaper LUST was created in connection with Anna’s graduate thesis at HDK, where the theme was to explore if a designer can base their work on emotional needs. The need for playfulness and security in a committed relationship resulted in this wallpaper, with its lush theme of flowers and semi-hidden images of lovemaking was meant to evoke love, desire and communication.

What inspires Anna Elzer Oscarson?

I seek a certain balance between being grounded without ever stagnating. I’m not into owning a lot of “stuff”, but I do believe in beauty and quality. Attractive and functional surroundings are a real energy boost. We’re affected by our environment much more than we know. Surrounding ourselves with beautiful and significant items charges our batteries. I thrive on challenge. Not that I don’t need some peace and quiet, too, but my full potential comes to the fore when life is dynamic.
