About the designer


Oana Tudose

Oana Tudose (b. 1987, Romania) graduated Piet Zwart Institute interior architecture and retail design master’s degree and has worked independently at the intersection of space, design, and visual art since 2014. Her works explore different mediums such as textiles, painting, drawing, and poetry while researching themes of mysticism, mythology, and identity. Her current textile paintings stem from ongoing research of the place where she grew up: Gorj region of Romania. By using a discarded biodegradable material, she creates images and personifications of her childhood forest as they existed in her memory but also in the local archaic rituals and mythological characters. The childhood forest becomes a sacred place where memory and imagination could co-exist.

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.
