We have a greenhouse in our garden
Valvet is our sensory space, our playground for creativity and a blank canvas to fill. It's a a carefully curated, yet forever changing exhibition, filled with all things that we love. See, feel and experience the symbiotic relationship between the artists, enjoy the carefully curated context this space enhance and devour the hand picked selection. All pieces at Valvet including art, interior and decor are available to purchase.
The Piano and the Greenhouse
The dilapidated glass shell is a shelter, of sorts, to two more guests, in the form of grapevines. The piano came here to rest and the vines to bear fruit. We have a mutual understanding; we do not interfere with their existence and they do not demand any unnecessary care or special treatment. As such, the piano has settled down to a carefree life in the company of the vines.
- Andrew Cowie
Shadow play is an ancient form of storytelling
yet to us it's a form of artistic enhancement
born from the mesmerising
connection between a source of light
and the object itself.
The powerful yet insignificant shapes
produced by a body coming between rays of light
and a surface creates the magic in the image.
The shadows miss interpreted reference as
proximity, ominous oppressiveness is to us the contrary,
– soft, understated and beautiful
Our Walls, Your Imagination
At Valvet in the heart of Old Gothenburg, placed in Radheska huset since 1669, the vaulted ceiling and original stone floor creates an astonishing backdrop for photographic shoots. The space lends itself as a blank canvas to use for photographic shoots.
The name Oblure is a union between the words object and allure, which is the core of the brand – to make alluring objects. Oblure was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden with the desire to make innovative products that add something new to the field of lighting. With our roots in the Scandinavian design tradition we love the simplistic, minimalistic and functional – but we wanted something more. Therefore, we work with international designers with the aim to build a collection with a lot of character and innovative elements that surprise and intrigue the beholder. Our vision is to curate the original, bold and beautiful.
Handpicked with a purpose –
To bring beauty, soul and love to your home
