Description

These storage containers are part of the “Extraordinary Objects” collection and were presented in the Nationale Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon. The jars are made from handblown glass and the lids are 3D printed in multi-jet fusion material.

The “Extraordinary Objects” collection is the result of research work on form and function while questioning our relationship and interaction with everyday objects. These results are not ordinary shapes, but they are ordinary through their function and they have to be understood before being used.

Each collection is sculptural and has a different material and fabrication method. For this project, designer Irina Flore explored various techniques and materials, from handcrafted glass to laser-cutting metal and 3D printed ceramics. Flore intends to make viewers curious, while inviting them to analyze, question, and interact with these sculptures differently and try to understand their functions.

Available in two sizes (small: 7.6×7.6×17.8 / large: 12.7×12.7×17.8) and four colours (Blood Red / Blue / Orange / Purple).

About the designer


Irina Flore

Irina\'s design practice focuses on functional art -everyday objects. The statement pieces that Irina likes to design are objects that tell a story. Each design has an elaborated process with research on material, form, and function. The fabrication and the process is essential aspect of the narrative of her designs. She collaborates with artisans, and this is a significant part of her practice because she grew up in a family of craftspeople in a small town in Romania. Her design practice focuses on advanced technologies but also on old traditions and crafts.

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.
