A62 Claesson Koivisto Rune is a Swedish architecture firm founded in 1995 by Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune – all of whom studied at the University of Arts, Crafts & Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm. Over time, they have come to work broadly with architecture and design, and have created buildings, interior design, furniture and more. They have designed products for more than 80 international brands. In 2004, Claesson Koivisto Rune became the first Swedish architecture firm to exhibit in the international department of the Venice Biennale of Architecture.
