Description

Ceramic art piece “Aladdin’s Lamp” is a game of form that intends to reveal the magical energy and bubbling structure it contains. It is inspired by oriental mysticism and Art Nouveau, which has finally taken the form of a dignified, but slightly worn-out antique shape. With its airy and transparent structure, “Aladdin’s Lamp” challenges the habitual approach to a vessel. Here, the initial function of the container has been set away – it contains a conceptual substance instead of tangible one.

About the designer


Kadi Hektor

Kadi Hektor´s work is characterized by a strong artistic approach - it is a mixture of natural objects that she has seen around her. Interpreting these objects in her own way,  her´s artistic style is balancing between abstract and figurative, functional and decorative. Kadi describes her creative process as follows: \" Nature fascinates and inspires me the most - nature, which has created so many charmingly bizarre forms, structures, textures, and systems. I prefer to observe and examine nature at close range, and if it is possible, on the inside too. I\'m not trying to copy nature; instead I let my subconscious impressions synthesize them. Only then will I turn to design and create my own organic sculptures.\" Kadi Hektor was born in Estonia, on 1976 and studied at the Estonian Academy of Arts (1998-2002). After that she has worked freelance in her own ceramics studio, where she has also organized and instructed ceramic courses and workshops. Since 2002, she has had some solo exhibitions, and she has participated in many group exhibitions in Estonia, Europe and Asia . Since 2015 Kadi Hektor has been selected for major exhibitions and has received several grants for her artistic practice. Her work can be found in public and private collections.

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.
