Description

The KUKKII (“Blossom”) floor sculpture composes of slender-stemmed wooden flowers, which variously grouped, capture the moment of calm and freedom sometimes experienced in nature. each flower is handcrafted using a variety of techniques. The sculpture can perform many roles: a sole sculpture tenderly comfortable in its loneliness or a group of sculptures growing into a striking group as a eyecatcher in a space. It lives with the changing demands of its environment.

From the maple wood baseplate is rising three long stem sculptures and every of them are uniquely hand carved from one block of linden wood. Flowers are freely attached to the baseplate, making the sculpture piece easy to flat-pack for the shipment.

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.
