Description

MORPHS is a family composed of five cubical objects. Each piece is of a different size and interacts with the impression of a sphere in different ways. Both the size of the cube and the sphere are morphing. The interaction between the cubes and the sphere is symbolic of the lasting impression humans leave on earth. The only difference is that we present an opposite scenario, where the sphere representing the earth has left a clear and lasting impression on objects in our daily life.

Sustainability and circularity are important aspects of the designs. We use bio-based composites in which cow-dung is the main ingredient. This material is available in large amounts around the world and is rather seen as waste instead of precious raw material.

Our pieces have a stony structure and resemble concrete and ceramics, but are lighter in weight. The production is handmade and no glazing is used. In this way, each piece can be reused as raw material after its intended usage period. All our pieces receive a thermal treatment during production. They are odor-free and safe for indoor use. We choose for simplicity and serenity, using basic shapes and giving space to the material characteristics.

The pieces can be used in different ways such as candle holders, key holders, etc. We encourage the imagination of users to determine the use according to their needs. We make art of natural materials to create joy in our daily life and leave a positive impression on our beloved planet

About the designer


Studio Lindey Cafsia + Studio Carbon

Studio Carbon is a design studio, based in the Netherlands and India, that works at the intersection of technology, systems thinking, and storytelling to build solutions for a better future. Our insight-driven process along with a diverse skill-set ensures effective translation of an idea into reality. We offer Product design and development, Interior designs, User Interface & User Experience Design, Branding, Brand Strategy Design, and Systems Design as part of our services. Studio Lindey Cafsia is a design studio, based in the Netherlands, that focuses on combining bioinspired design with material research, sustainability, and wellbeing of users in autonomous product design and development. In 2019 we started a collaboration between both studios, in a project called Dungse, where we use cow dung as our base ingredient for research and development of new materials and products for different markets. Cow dung is a material that is extensively used in Indian culture for different purposes in daily life. Each material has a different look and feel and stimulates the senses in ways you would not expect. The Dungse project arose from the desire to develop our own material, which is beneficial to people and the environment. With a material as versatile as this is we really think that we will accomplish our vision. Our goal by participating in the exhibition is to introduce the world to our material and stimulate the imagination for all that is still possible with this material.

Curated by

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
