Description

“Obreras” (Spanish word for female construction workers) is a collection of vases made out of construction waste found on the streets.

The plant that is born out of rubble. The apparently fragile overcomes the unbreakable. Why is a vase associated with the feminine? Why is the construction work to the masculine? From this context, we bring materials and objects from the construction sites, cold and anodyne, to the opposite, the warm and affectionate world of the vase. We propose a turn of the screw by completely changing the default use of construction materials.

About the designer


todo to do

Todo to do is a common project from Elena and Selina Feduchi. We are sisters and have been working together in this project since 2018. Todo to do reflects our way of thinking and what we believe in. \"Todo\" in Spanish means \"everything\", combined with the verb \"to do\" we make a pun (wordplay) since we defend the idea that: \"everything is done, but at the same time everything remains to be done.\" When we talk about todo to do, we talk about sustainability and reuse of materials. We work mainly through the observation of things that are interesting for us. Rather than focusing on its design, we are interested in the everyday life of the objects and the people around them.

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.
