    How is this defined? A singular and unparalleled creation, existing in only one instance with no intention of replication. It may also refer to an original prototype. Conversely, a set of pieces displaying variations in attributes, such as shape or color, within the same collection, falls under the category of an open or limited edition.

The ‘Shape’ collection is a series of objects created over the course of two years. They have no common theme or inspiration. Each of the objects has a completely different genesis. They share the abstract name ‘Shape’ which does not mean anything.

The design of the ‘Shape N.1’ screen is based on a small model made of plasticine by Mela, the artist’s six-year-old niece. The girl was playing with plasticine while the designer was creating her models. Anna got intrigued by the way Mela had produced her object. It was pure expression, with no hesitation, no intention, no justification or explanation. The artist has been working with children for a long time and is fascinated by their approach to creation: ‘Children are uncompromising (…) when creating, they rarely hesitate; they do not reflect or analyse. They don’t try, they just do.’ The designer decided she would not only produce an object based on her niece’s idea, but also try to adopt her method of creation. The screen was thus created without a design prepared beforehand. Anna was making all design decisions on an ongoing basis, working on the material right away. ‘Shape N.1’ is the result of a struggle, a record of numerous attempts, changes, corrections, hesitations; it is also an ‘exercise in the freedom of creation’.

The screen has been entirely hand-carved in alder wood.

About Anna Bera Visit Showroom →

Anna Bera's studio and wood workshop is based in Warsaw, Poland. Dedicated to creating furniture pieces, crafted by hand from wood, the brand is notable for its bridging of art and design, with inspiration coming from Bera's observations of the relationship between humans and nature — from a biological, spiritual and cultural perspective. As an artist, woodcarver and carpenter, Anna creates mainly functional sculptures crafted by hand in limited edition runs, as well as one-of-a-kind pieces. Her designs refer to forms drawn from the world of nature. The artist focuses on the ways the objects are used, as well as on their ritualistic significance in everyday life. She creates sculptural furniture, the form of which does not reveal the functionality, instead encouraging the users to explore and give them their own meaning.
