Description

A celebrational totem of everyday objects, stool, plate, jug and a lamp. Made out of aluminum, produced in smelters in Iceland utilizing the hydroelectric powers of rivers in the islands highlands.

The work is a thought experiment on the seemingly strangle hierarchical division between objects in our homes, ornament and function. We have objects that we show proudly in homes, still there are other more mundane, everyday objects that we keep hidden away in cupboards and drawers. The work is a celebration of the everyday, linking together the functional with the decorative. Once assembled a collection of mundane objects becomes a decorative totem of the everyday.

Utilising the only company using Icelandic aluminium for their production. The objects are labour intensive, hand crafted objects. Sand casted in Málmsteypan Hella Iceland. (Metal Casting Workshop).

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.
