Description

“Cave In Time” is a contemporary vase in mouth blown glass in black from the collection, ‘Mother Creation’. Contrasting matte-coated, hollow sphere and intense black surfaces of highly polished glass. Marble base in polished Portoro Nero. Design, philosophy, and development by Experimental. A unique piece, signed.

For striking flower arrangements, the large glass sphere can be freely angled or removed for filling with water or cleaning.

Classified as ‘art with function’, glass art objects by Experimental are art pieces that embody both qualities of art and design. Offering a viewer an aesthetical and philosophical spectrum embedded in these works as well as functional setting, these glass art objects are intended to add beauty and practicality to everyday routine. Showcased at the exhibition venue ‘Cave In Time’ during The Venice Glass Week 2019 in San Marco, Venice, Italy. Objects from the collection Experimental are already in private collections in Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Belgium, Russia, and others.

Story: “Cave In Time” is a poetically frozen moment. Here, three mythical yet constant elements surround a viewer: Mother Creation, Eternity, and their child Experience. Each serves a purpose in the process of self-realization as we enter the realm of self-reflection called ‘life’. Through certain expression of vanity and seeming trivia expressed in boldly presented glass objects, the surrounding atmosphere created is pointing our wandering focus towards the depths of our existence.

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.
