Description

Blend vases
by Moving Mountains and Runa Klock

The vase has a strong, visual character, not depending on flowers to be experienced as a complete object. The inner shape of the vase is highlighted by two colors blended, creating a unique look to each vase.

Blend is the first collaborative work by designers Syrette Lew (US) from Moving Mountains and Runa Klock (N). Through their initial conversations, they discussed a mutual interest in working with a to them, unfamiliar material that highlighted a skilled craft. Glassblowing has remained un-mechanized since ancient times and there was a mystique surrounding the whole process which they wanted to unlock. The designers were also drawn to glass for its visually mystifying nature and exceptional properties. Glass can take on many different qualities, so they wanted the design to consider oppositional relationships like transparent vs. opaque, smooth vs. textured, and loose vs. rigid within the actual object. The designers experienced the range of what glass might do whether you want it to or not: bubble, crack, slump that they had to troubleshoot along the way. They also spent quite a lot of time doing color samples, as blending glass colors is not as straightforward as many may think.
For this project, the designers sought out local glassblower Andrew O. Hughes who practices at UrbanGlass. Without Hughes’ expertise and the resources and facilities that UrbanGlass provided, the project would not have been possible.

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.
