Description

The “Abstract Form Studies” series is a collection of objects which are intrinsically linked through their process, involving a unique forming technique which allows for the generation of abstract form shapes. Thus, inviting the material to define its own perimeters through the opposing forces of expansion from within and the natural cooling process of glass. The resultant forms are the expression of a unique set of circumstances made permanent.

About the designer


George William Bell

George William Bell’s work stands on the fine line between fine art, craft and design with material investigation and innovation at its core. His personal artistic exploration has entered a paradoxical paradigm in which craftsmanship and artistic intent work in collaboration with the possibilities inherent in self-governing form. Exploring autonomous, self-generative aesthetics, material possibilities come into being which hold the power of tactical form in flux. G. William Bell’s work looks to the future of the handmade object, a future in which boundaries are blurred, and ingrained belief systems are challenged. Bell’s work has been exhibited widely, featuring in several high profile international exhibitions including New Glass Now, at Corning Museum of Glass (New York), The European Award for Applied Arts (Mons, Belgium) as well as Glass is Tomorrows touring exhibition (Stockholm, Milan, London) amongst others. He has received awards from Danske Kunsthåndværkere & Designere, Ung Svensk Form, and the Stanislav Libensky Award.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
