Description

The OKO family is a collection of pieces made of ceramic with an unmistakable artistic panache. Each of the collections to date has made full use of the richness of illustration and its fine lines, the broad strokes of a paintbrush and the depths of multicoloured ceramic glazes. OKO Vase came first and lent the name to the whole collection. It was first presented in 2014 as part of Tokyo Designers Week and has since had numerous re-editions and collection launches, all decorated and hand-painted by the artist. Its organic spindle-shaped form and trademark spherical depressions together with graphic patterns and colours pay tribute to history and craftsmanship while maintaining a distinct contemporary character. The OKO vase features in polish art and history of art textbook as an example of 21st century design.

FORMS is Malwina Konopacka’s latest project (2020). Stylistically it sets itself apart from the graphic decorations and painting-like expression of the previous collections. The walls of the vessels are covered entirely in saturated colours and their gradients in order to, as the name suggests, bring the form into focus.

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.
