Artificial Nature is a collaboration between the artist and design duo Josephine Andredottir and Emilie Bobek
We have in this project imitated landscape with artificial materials. We create an artificial scene of nature because art and design often find common ground here We ask ourselves, can we live in an artificial landscape without nature or can nature be found in the artificial materials?
The natural colours of rock, stone and moss are what first comes to the eye when looking at the scene from far away, but when moving in between the shapes you slowly feel the transformation from natural to artificial within the objects. Sculptural function as well as physical function is not an aim in itself but is instead replaced with a diverse landscape where the object floats together as a whole.
Here you are allowed to explore the materials and explore moss and stone in a new way. The many handcrafted shapes give a natural rough looking surface that allows the eyes to wander and find new places to investigate.
Stool, side table, wall pieces and sculptures are all handcrafted and are materials as mattress, jesmonite, epoxy and ash tree. Not only is the main product mattress turned into nature, but the works also contributes to recycling and makes focus on creating less waste.
Stay up to date on the world of contemporary collectible design through opinion leaders and key players from the global design scene.

Designer Josephine Andredottir and artist Emilie Bobek work together with different mediums as ceramic, wood, plaster, metals, jesmonite and epoxy to create their work. Through and intuitive collaboration they explore different unconventional materials and methods to expand the limits of sculpture and furniture.
\"We find great interest in exploring materials and it is for both of us, base for imagination. We have a passion for the handcrafted and therefore, is learning, investigating, and understanding a big part of our work. With both of our backgrounds in arts and design, this comes naturally. Whether it is on-off, functional design concepts, or sculptural artworks\" - Josephine Andredottir & Emilie Bobek
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.
