The “Le Giare” Jug is made of red terracotta and is worked by hand on the lathe. With this project, we want to bring this type of artifact back to its original function for wine or water and pay homage to the ancient gestures of the Mediterranean table.

“Le Giare” are amphorae inspired by the ancient world, composed in the lower part by a classical form, while a more squared and contemporary form is taken in the upper part. To develop this characteristic form, “Le Giare” must be shaped in several pieces and joined together when the clay begins to dry, requiring great artisan skill.

About the designer

Domenico Orefice

Domenico Orefice’s work is based on respecting matter and its history, transcending the traditional distinctions between design, craftsmanship, and art. He seeks a distinctive form in the object, communicating the project in a clear and immediate way, and playfully re-examines the form and function of the object giving it new meanings. Passionate about Italian design icons, and with a graffiti and street art background, the designer creates his products as an outcome of a path that goes from the mind to the hands and, at last, to the eyes. All of this can be seen in pictures of his works, photo shoots which Domenico Orefice himself, as an art director, takes care of and through which he depicts the origin and imaginary of such works. His latest projects range from self-productions to limited editions which rediscover archaic materials, such as raw earth or cotton rag. These materials are used working side by side with artisans and changing them with new technologies and languages in order to create primitive-contemporary objects.

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.
