THETRAY.SHOP began with a random comment from my mother, Viola, during a weekly FaceTime call.
I live in Australia where I’m now a citizen. Mum lives in Sweden. We’re hemispheres apart, but now use modern technology to work on product design.
My name is Rickard Vikström. I grew up near the Arctic Circle in Sweden, working with my parents in our home decorating shop.
Mum was always very creative, something my father jokingly said made more work for him. When she suggested we make some trays together, it was very random! But — not at all unlike her, so I wasn’t surprised. She’s full of good ideas like this.
