An immense amount of crates travel all over the world each day. Things are packed and unpacked, into larger and smaller units. A logistical machine that drains the Earth. Relocation. Systematisation. Organizing. Doubt. What and where?

I have been interested in the feelings that crates with different sizes and shapes arouse in us: removal crate, casket, trunk, ballot box, display cabinet, shoe box, jewellery casket, etc. Enticing? Dangerous? Exciting? They can either hide something horrible or something wonderful.

The more finitely and securely the crates are closed, the more forcefully does the encased want to emerge. A system appealing to transparency might not be translucent. Something important will forever be hidden in reflections or obscure corners. We see deformations, desires and self-reflections.

The most compelling segment of these case studies is associated with space, light, and glass, at the intersection of ethics and aesthetics.

About the designer

Tiina Sarapu

I studied glass art in Estonian Academy of Arts in 1990–1996. I have been working for the Department of Glass Art at the Estonian Academy of Arts as a teacher and technician, from 2003 to 2017 as an associate professor. I have taken part in several exhibitions, conferences, symposiums and workshops since 1994 both in Estonia and abroad. I have earned attention at several international contests of glass art. My works are owned by several institutions and collectors. Today I work as a freelancer in Tallinn, Estonia. Tiina Sarapu – glass artist with a bold vision, her installations and sculptures place glass in the role of clearly organised space or emptiness, not merely reducing it to its material characteristics.

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.
