Description

The starting point of this project is rooted in the designers’ interest in old stucco materials and moulding techniques. It has grown into a fascination with the two-dimensional line of the running mould technique being transformed through a specifically created turning machine into a three-dimensional object.

Every piece begins with a line and through the building up of material, the three-dimensional manifestation of that line is created. The objects are simultaneously built and decorated through the process of their making. The process of building up the layers to create the form is emphasized by using different pigments in each layer of the stucco material, making their creation very present in the finished object. The resulting objects are ambiguous pieces that exist somewhere in between function and sculpture.

About the designer


Flensted Mouritzen

Flensted Mouritzen was founded by Troels Flensted (DK) and Ragna Mouritzen (DK), with the vision to explore materials, colours and ways of making. They create gallery pieces that balances in between function and sculpture. They both studied at University of the Arts London (Central Saint Martins & Camberwell) and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, and are now based in Copenhagen, Denmark where they continue their individual practices as well as their collaboration.

Curated by

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
