A new members club and co-working space for creatives will open in Stockholm in the fall. As part of the house, Austere will open its first European outpost.

In 1890 cyclists across the country posed proudly with their bicycles. In doing so they declared a kind of independence and embrace of technology that enabled freedom, whilst reinforcing their identity as modern and forward-thinking. Over a century later, Biomega, the Copenhagen-based designer bicycle brand, evokes the same ethos in its riders.
Fifteen years after the inception of Hövding, the inflatable-helmet, Terese Alstin uses her experience as both entrepreneur and inventor to create a platform that encourages women designers to “keep kicking ass.”
It is easy to be overwhelmed by the far reaching diameter of Los Angeles. From the outskirts it seems brash and unbecoming, but beneath it is a host of inspiring individuals and endeavours. We asked six designers who participated in our current exhibition, Sight Unseen: Site Specific/L.A, to decipher LA by sharing their favorite local spots.
Austere is pleased to announce an exhibition of contemporary design from Los Angeles, curated by the influential online magazine Sight Unseen. The show, entitled Site Specific: L.A., will be on view from December 5, 2015 – February 14, 2016.
