This Emirati Clay x Italian Murano Glass collection from Emirati designer Fatima Al Zaabi and Italian designer Matteo Silverio explores the analogies between different materials, crafts, cultures and heritages. It aims to enhance the craft dialogue by merging hand- and machine-made techniques.

Each piece uses parametric design and digital fabrication tools to create moulds, while artisans directly manipulate the glass and clay in the moulds.

This collection aims to demonstrate how tradition and innovation can coexist in the same project, which is why the daring experiment highlights how glass and clay can be elements of the same object.

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.
