As each of us seeks physical perfection, the cult of the body and the will to make it attractive to all has become one of the challenges of our time. In the near future, our progress in genetics will make these physical efforts superfluous. To highlight this idea, we offer a trio of free weights, a pair of push-up bars and a two-hand dumbbell. Their formal language close to the architectural challenge is made of lacquered steel. Left to rest, these dumbbells become genuine sculptures for your home.

The Olympia collection was designed by Ulysse Martel & Candice Joyce Blanc for the Future Artefacts exhibition in Milan by NOV Gallery.

Unique handcrafted collection of nine pieces.

About the designer

Ulysse Martel & Candice Joyce Blanc

Candice Blanc and Ulysse Martel, respectively architect and product designer, want to merge their knowledge in their practice to propose relevant projects. They aim to initiate a new dialogue through their collaboration, challenge their achievements and create new learning paths in their creative fields. The Future Artefacts project represents in their eyes the perfect opportunity to express themselves as a duo on themes that they particularly like; space, innovation, sport and antiquity.

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.
