Description

Artefacts are sculptures and center pieces made of scraps, leftovers from the various projects of the workshop, sometimes found materials, but also scraps of the intuition, instant inspiration, accidents turned into valuable pieces. Made of various woods, using only sustainable and traditional techniques, they are unique pieces. They explore their creators’ thought of the time over our relationship to wood, objects, craft, and what we consider to be our civilization, searching to capture the genuine human ability to create beauty from humble, yet rich materials.

Artefact 102 is made of Ash and French Oak.

About the designer


Benjamin Foucaud

After years as creative Director & designer for major brands, Benjamin found peace in his own studio as a woodworker and cabinet maker. Primary using hand tools and ancient techniques, he focuses on his trade as high end builder, mastering a large set of skills, as well as defining his \"non industrial designer\" role, interrogating processes, technics, and valuation of wood towards our contemporary problematics and desires. This is why aside from furniture, he produces and build himself objects and sculptures, mainly unique pieces available trough Adorno. Inspired by the form of the wood pieces he finds in the workshop, cultural testimony and interrogation about what our civilization consider as being human. He delivers unique and sculptural pieces where wood becomes rich or humble, rough or sophisticated, simple or surprising.

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.
