"Patterns of the Biosphere" is a joint production by Centre partner the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics and the classical Swedish interior design company Svenskt Tenn. The exhibition features artwork where four Swedish illustrators, Eric Ericson, Liselotte Watkins, Stina Wirsén and Jesper Waldersten, have interpreted key concepts and insights from the transdisciplinary research done at the Beijer Institute, often together with the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
The exhibition, which is open 15 April - 15 June 2015 and is free of charge, is located in Svenskt Tenn's store on Strandvägen 5 in Stockholm.

Svenskt Tenn was founded in 1924 by Estrid Ericson, in 1975 she sold it to the Kjell and Märtha Beijer Foundation chaired by Anders Wall. Today the profit from Svenskt Tenn, via the Beijer foundation, provides important core funding for the Beijer Institute at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
The designer Josef Frank's classic cabinet has been re-shaped for the exhibition, by the design and communications studio Guringo, as a sculpture that interprets the adaptive cycle model, the "Holling eight," of resilience thinking (photo: Svenskt Tenn).
