Description

This hyperbolic prototype, inspired by the concrete experiments of Roni Horn’s chair, is the first adaptation of kutleh, as it explores the wild and boundless possibilities of this material.

Blocks of kutleh draw from selective color spectra that evoke the natural stones in the Levant and the Mediterranean. kutleh presents itself as a redefined raw material, which designers can carve out their limitless creations from, to introduce innovative forms.

While it is important for kutleh to reflect the local feel of their region, they think of the project as one that extends beyond boundaries. Stone waste is produced all over the world, and they see themselves producing localized collections that reflect the lands of the raw materials. The variation of colors and forms that spring from different locations is where the beauty lies.

About the designer


kutleh

kutleh (arabic: block, mass) is a project that repurposes the surplus produced from cladding tiles used in everyday construction projects and attempts to create blocks out of the discarded. These new kutleh blocks emerge as a new medium. In its essence, kutleh aspires to create multiple unique blocks of various forms and colors, offering designers around the world a new medium to carve out and realize their own designs. This project was conceptualized and established by Architect Rula Yaghmour, who has an interest in various design disciplines. Her appreciation and understanding of materiality has ushered in a fruitful collaboration with stone and marble fabricators A.W. Yasin & Sons Co. The family business has been in this industry since the early 1960s, contributing with their valuable expertise to Rula\'s designs.

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.
