“Serotonin-Sertraline” floor lamp is inspired by the artistic form of classical Chinese ceremonial objects such as the Buddhist parasol. It is covered in fine silk, hand-embroidered with the molecular geometry of Serotonin (the hormone that makes us feel happiness), Sertraline (a medicine that reduces depression), and text of ten questions that a therapist would ask.

As part of Duyi Han’s “Ordinance of the Subconscious Treatment” collection, this piece is considered a device that records human cultural history. It updates the decorative content of classical Chinese furniture and reflects a contemporary belief in the modern scientific side of mental health.

The embroidery is done by highly experienced craftspeople in Suzhou, China. The lamp is made by experienced professionals at Duyi Han’s collaborative workshop in Shanghai.

About the designer

Duyi Han

Duyi Han (1994) is an artist and designer who creates digital and physical environments and objects as perceptual experiences that evoke rich feelings of beauty. His work is based on extensive research on the evolution process of design and aesthetics, with a focus on the “ingredients of beauty” as they relate to society, culture, history, geography, and biology. Using these “ingredients of beauty,” Duyi Han’s experimental practice operates beyond the limitation of fixed style and time period, creating poetic and moving work that is able to respond to diverse time and cultural contexts. His past work has appeared on numerous international platforms, from Vogue to American National Academy of Sciences. Duyi Han holds a B. Arch (2019) from Cornell University in New York and has worked at the architecture office Herzog & de Meuron in Basel, Switzerland.

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.
