Travel Photography Guide: Stockholm, Sweden

Travel Photography Guide: Stockholm, Sweden

Back in February, ABDZ was traveling to Stockholm, Sweden to cover the launch of the new Volvo V60. After all the eventful-fun jazz, it's always a must for me to find time to explore the city, especially when it's your first time ever traveling to Stockholm. What can I say about this city? Well, every place we went whatever it was a restaurant, coffee shop or a tourist attraction; Stockholm is very pretty and this city owns the term "Beautiful Design". You wouldn't understand this term until you start exploring and after a few blocks, you already in awe. So I have put together a Google Map and added the locations through a photo gallery via Instagram, I wasn't able to visit all the places (short trip!) from my Google Map or people who took way better shots than me. Hah! Please enjoy and make your own memories! Here's the Map Short Disclaimer: I have created this map for my own travel and also based on my own photo style of what are the things that I wanted to see and visit. Use this as a reference OR a foundation to create yours. Have fun in Stockholm!

The new Volvo V60: the Unveiling Experience purely in Swedish Family Lifestyle

The new Volvo V60: the Unveiling Experience purely in Swedish Family Lifestyle

Currently in Sweden, I had the honour to assist earlier today to the World Premiere of the new Volvo V60, right in the heart of Suburbia of Stockholm. I was part with many others in participation of a non-traditional way to unveil a new car. If you think about the traditional way of a conference hall or a motor show. It wasn't the case at all. We had a really warm welcome in a beautiful house where you were able to walk around and see first hands the diverse needs and realities of modern family life. After a quick lunch and being served fika, we took "stage" outside the house in the parking area where the snow (real snow!) was slowly falling down. It was the perfect set. We even had some neighbours from houses all around that was looking through their own household windows, it felt really like an intimate experience. After a little while, the new Volvo V60 was revealed to us. A stunning design packed with the new T6 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that generates a combined 340hp or the T8 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that delivers 390hp. That's not all, Volvo is standing tall as the industry leader in safety, with a comprehensive list of safety features including advanced driver support systems known from the 90 Series and XC60, making the new V60 one of the safest cars on the road. In their words The car was launched in its natural habitat – the driveway of a family home in Stockholm – highlighting Volvo Cars’ pedigree in family estates and pinpointing how the V60’s versatile design caters to the diverse needs and realities of modern family life. Few car makers can match Volvo Cars’ history and credibility in making well-designed, practical and versatile estate cars. The family estate driver is an important customer for our business and has been for generations,” said HĂ„kan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. “The new V60 honours that tradition, but also takes it much further.” HĂ„kan Samuelsson on the Volvo V60 Your browser does not support the video tag.

Sweden Design Inspiration

Sweden Design Inspiration

Kicking off my first journey to Sweden today! For the occasion, I have put a collection of inspiring work from designers from Sweden, whatever it is an illustration, graphic design, UI design and more. It's quite interesting to discover designers from another country, mostly because their background is different. How will it affect their work? I would say it depends on the type of work but there will be a resemblance in the choice of color palette and the choice of scenery for inspiration. Hope you will enjoy!

Architecture Photography: ARCHIISERIES II by Calle Artmark

There is always this excitement to discover new places especially through the medium of photography. In my case, it's a combination of architecture and the thrill of finding the right perspective. That being said, we are taking a look at the stunning work of Calle Artmark who is a Photographer/Retoucher based in Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is commonly known for their beautiful underground system where you would practically need an admission but today we are all about the architecture through the lens of Calle. I would like to mention that are also buildings from Copenhagen and NYC too. Enjoy! Long overdue to publish more of my architectural series in here. All these buildings are photographed either in Stockholm Sweden or in Copenhagen, Denmark + Guggenheim in NYC.

Interior Design: Volvo Get Away Lodge in Sweden

Interior Design: Volvo Get Away Lodge in Sweden

We would like to share this Interior Design of a stunning lodge called the Get Away Lodge located just outside of village of Åre in JĂ€mtland County, Northern Sweden. It’s a collaboration between renowned car brand Volvo  and an online hotel curator Tablet Hotels . Inside the lodge, you’ll be charmed with a wood burning fireplace, lounge, free wi-fi/parking, 24 hours concierge and on top of that; access to access to Volvo’s newly launched all-weather V90 Cross Country wagon car! According to the Global Consumer Experience at Volvo Car Group, six out of ten people want to spend more time outdoors, not at the office. It’s not hard to think otherwise, this lodge is the perfect location for anyone who wants to escape for a few days to discover the elusive work-life balance we have all heard of. Launched in conjunction with Volvo Cars’ all-weather premium estate, the V90 Cross Country, and part of a bigger campaign promoting work-life balance, the Swedish automaker has teamed up with Tablet Hotels, the original online hotel curator, to offer a one-of–a-kind experience in the snowy serenity of the Swedish mountains.   Cars and hospitality are a great match, as both involve working hard to make the result look easy — and this is an illustration of when the magic happens,” says Laurent Vernhes, Tablet co-founder and CEO. “Volvo has created the kind of truly special hotel experience that our fans crave. I’m going to work on making sure that the Get Away Lodge is only the first of many!” More Information at https://www.tablethotels.com/en/are-hotels/volvo-getaway-lodge
