Description

Furniture for the self-proclaimed royals.

”At this very desk, the Countess of Sorgenfri wrote her famous sonnets and thirst traps. Like the young nobilities of her time, she was schooled in the art of texting. Rumour has it that her ghost still hides in between the fibers, awaiting the perfect moment to resurface and reply.”

The “Really Rococo” desk and stool are loosely based on the asymmetrical and nature-inspired rococo style. A workplace for emotional labor and social maintenance. Inspired by the ”Bonheur-Du-Jour”, a type of letter-writing desk that was popular among women in the 1700s. The objects are made out of “Really Board”, a textile waste fibreboard with a core of discarded hotel bedlinen and a coating of shredded textile off-cuts.

Originally commissioned by M.U.S. (Malmö Upcycling Service) for the collective exhibition “Last Minute” at the Swedish Embassy in Denmark during 3daysofdesign.

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.
