All the sculptures Tom von Kaenel makes are unique, handcrafted. The stones all come from the surrounding marble quarries of the island. The Naxian marble is of white, grey, or yellow-brown colour, its structure is crystalline. No measuring instruments other than compasses and scales are used in the production of an object. The eye decides on the final shape. This small deviation in symmetry gives the form its individual tension.
The sculptures are kept raw, the surfaces are deliberately not polished so that the traces of the craft are visible. The crystalline surfaces are shimmering, giving the object a unique liveliness.
100% natural stone not sealed, not protected against acid. Beautiful imperfect!

Tom von Kaenel, sculptor and painter, was born in Switzerland in 1961. Already in his early childhood he was deeply devoted to art. His desire to bring beauty to the world is Tom von Kaenel\'s inspiration, drive and source for the creation of his works.
Already during his training as a technical draughtsman and later as a teacher of pictorial design, he devoted himself to painting and three-dimensional work. Tom von Kaenel has exhibited his work in various solo and group exhibitions. For seven years he was represented by Galerie Ute Barth in Zurich.
Today Tom von Kaenel lives and works on the island of Naxos. Everything in his environment inspires and shapes his work. He creates objects and sculptures out of Naxian marble in craftsmanship liveliness and timeless beauty.
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.
