Description

“Point of View” is a collaboration between product designer Hanna Dís Whitehead and type designer Guðmundur Úlfarsson where they explore their joint interest in the journey between the digital and the handmade. In the process, they make independent work based on a visual conversation between the two artists, from two-dimensional to three-dimensional and vice-versa. Both Hanna and Guðmundur have a personal approach to their work, which is on the border between design, craft, and art. In his font design, Guðmundur works with the language and textual art, while Hanna weaves materials, colours, forms, and stories together in her creation of sculptures, household objects, textiles, carpets, and other products.

Hanna started by making extruded ceramic sculptures developed from looking at details and elements from Guðmundur’s type fonts. Depending on where you look at the sculptures, you perceive their colour and shape differently. She then evolved the sculptures into objects for the home.

The “Point of View” Table Lamp has a very different shape and colour expression depending which point of view you have while viewing it in a space. Going from blue, yellow, and green to red, green, and yellow.

Made from extruded earthenware and underglaze. LED neon flex light source, 24V/20W. LED driver..

Prototype/exhibition piece, handmade and hand glazed in Hanna´s studio in the South East of Iceland.

Curated by

Belgian design is traditionally connected with its territory, both in terms of the use of natural materials and their corresponding colour palette. In addition, the international design scene was overwhelmed by the completely white minimalistic interiors in the nineties and the Scandinavian design trend with lots of light coloured wood and soft tones during the past decade. To conquer the monotonous globalised, Instagram-driven interior design trends and to bring some optimism in these rather dark times, the international and Belgian design scenes nowadays fully embrace a vibrant colour scheme. Moreover colours are not only fun, but they also affect both our emotions and physical wellbeing. Or as Le Corbusier said: “Colour is an element as necessary as water and fire.” Faithful to the Belgian context, most designers work with natural materials, which they manually transform into perfectly imperfect, tactile eye-catchers. These qualities can be found in ceramics and textile, but also in pieces from reclaimed materials that had a previous life. By integrating these unique or small-scale production pieces from independent designer-makers in an interior, you’ll bring their personal quests together into the unique story of your home.
