Mattias Adolfsson – The illustrator behind Atelier Choux aesthetic

Atelier Choux is privileged to work with this acclaimed Swedish illustrator, Mattias Adolfsson, who is recognized around the world for his whimsical landscapes, with more than 500,000 fans across social networks. From his studio in Sigtuna across from Lake Mälaren that borders Stockholm, Mattias fills the pages of his Moleskine journals with kind robots, gentle animals and elaborate architecture, often in pastels and always with a touch of humor and fantasy.

As design and illustration enthusiasts, the founders of Atelier Choux had been following Mattias’ work for many years. When it finally came time to decorate their own petite choux’s nursery, they dreamed of having Mattias’ prints on luxurious bedding and clothing. The Atelier Choux aesthetic was born, with the possibilities of a collaboration rendering them giddy with excitement, with visions of Mattias’ prints from floor to ceiling in their home.

Today, Atelier Choux’s products, signature packaging (designed in the style of a hôtel particulier) the logo and the website icons − are all illustrated by Mattias.
