Luminous Shapes is an ongoing collection investigating how people understand and interpret experimental product design. When presenting sculptural furniture, people often ask for the function of the objects. In this collection, the first phase is to make sculptures. After finding the right shapes, light sources are placed. Some objects will have a clear reference to already known types of lamps, while others will be more experimental and question if the object is a lamp, only based on the presence of the bulb.
The lighting objects are made in a composite material developed by the studio, based on crushed granite and fish glue.
Stine Mikkelsen is a Copenhagen-based material researcher and manipulatorworking within the field of experimental product design.
With a background in textile design, materials have a primary role for her in boththe process as well as the final objects. Through challenging and refining methodsfrom this field, unexpected things occur which lead to new ways of making and producing.
Through this, she not only challenges the way we understand textile andproduct design, she also modernises the notion of crafts.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
