Description

Since the Industrial Revolution, ignorance and negligence have generated overloaded landfills in our throw-away culture. Metals are crucial to our world, and, unfortunately, a non-renewable resource. “Ignorance is Bliss” is an ongoing project about reincorporating the value of metal waste by applying it as a pigment from industries such as drinking water supply and soil remediation companies into new valuable products and methods. The colors are retrieved purely by using pigments from waste. In this project, surprisingly, the more contaminated the raw material, the more vibrant the designed objects are.

Each piece is hand-crafted and fired in a unique reduction gas oven, comes with its own charming irregularities. All ceramic pieces are food safe.

Agne Kucerenkaite

Agne enjoys working with raw materials, transforming them into valuable products, methods, and systems, seeking interaction between design, society, industry, and environment. Her design process is characterized by in-depth research, experimental approach, and hands-on practice, motivated by historical and sociocultural contexts. Technical investigation of seemingly unattractive and industrially driven processes that she finds to be the most interesting source of unexpected links and associations, drive her design work.

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.
