Röhsska´s café is a meetingplace where design, crafts and fashion are natural topics of conversation and we serve sandwiches and pastries.
The Café Interior
The room where the café is housed is unique in the sense that it is the only place in the museum building where the house’s characteristic brick make part of the indoor environment. According to the legend, the museum architect Carl Westman and the first museum director Axel Nilsson personally visited the mill where the bricks were manufactured, and participated in efforts to carve designs into the clay.The pattern you can find on the cafe dishes, napkins, takaway cups etc. has been inspired by one of the brick´s inscriptions on the building facade.
Since the Röhsska Museum opened in 1916 the room has had many different functions. Just like in the beginning we now display a selection of ironwork from the museum collections. In the 1910s, the museum acquired a large number of locks, keys, fittings and other historic ironwork. Also on the museum’s facade and in the fixtures and fittings you can see several examples of wrought iron.
The designer trio Claesson Koivisto Rune has created the chair that is designed specifically to the café in collaboration with the Swedish furniture manufacturer Swedese.
