Description

The “Lichen Leftover Light” is part of a project where Louise Hederström investigates and shapes discarded lichen from Nordgröna’s production of sound absorbers. She pushes the boundaries of what is considered junk or product in a series of handmade unique mirrors and now 2022 also a lamp.

It can be used both as wall lamp and table lamp, hanging on the wall or as a landscape on a table or sideboard.

“Through the years I have been looking at so many trees, zooming in on moss, lichen and tubers. It looks like miniature landscapes, so fascinating and expressive. The design language came out of that.”

The material is very tactile and natural. Lichen (reindeer moss) is picked under strict restrictions in the Nordic countries and the production only use natural colouring and preservation. It’s a material have been used for ages because of its qualities. The structure is built of waste wood from Byggfabriken. Both Byggfabriken and Nordgröna have their production in Malmö so everything comes from local workshops. Since lichen is a natural product, it has a faint fragrance. Measure without bulb.

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.
