The design for the 19th century church in Stockholm included furniture and lighting. It was important for the existing church, with its history and neo-Gothic features, to remain as faithful to the architecture as possible, and that the new elements should be linked to the present, while retaining a connection with corresponding elements in older churches.
The Öland limestone altar - a guiding principle - was inspired by historic altars, renaissance style in particular. The limestone font mirrors the octagonal footprint of the church. Indirect lighting emphasizes the domed roof. The grey and white palette reflects the original interior. The project was initiated by Ann Magnusson of AM Public, the project's art consultant.
