Description

Nordic Mood collection is the result of an experimental design project and an extensive material research, which focuses on aesthetic and functional possibilities of bringing together ceramics and glass during the glassblowing process. The project involves the development of new specialised ceramic clays from raw materials, with thermal shock resistance and durability required for glassblowing and experimentation with glassblowing methods along with techniques for exploring the relationship between two materials.

Using ceramics directly in the the glassblowing process opened up many possibilities in the creative process. This project utilizes the outcomes of the extensive research the designer has undertaken while developing his master’s thesis project in terms of material research and technical knowledge. This displays various ways of joining two materials together while exploring the aesthetic and functional potential of this combination in terms of texture, form, colour and finishes.

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.
