Description

The “Sphynx” cups are made by scans of details of the iconic “Sphynx” benches located alongside the Victoria Embankment in London. The scanned models of the Sphynxes were digitally edited resulting the shape of the cup’s base. The same parts were then simplified in order to create the negative mold that was used in the slipcasting process, resulting the top part of the cup.

The piece is part of the “Chimeras of a High Tide”, a collection of artifacts created using traditional ceramic techniques and rapid prototyping mediums (3D printing, photogrammetry) leading to a result where the original can be hardly distinguished from its reproduction.

”The project started from my walks around the city of London, where with the eyes of a foreigner, I developed a particular fascination with the ornate Elements of Victorian mass-produced furniture. As a Greek person, I am used to living amongst the ruins of past grandeur, so I was intrigued by the paradox of the Victoriana, where the latest means of industrial production were expressed through revivalism.”

About the designer


Natalia Triantafylli

Natalia Triantafylli is a Greek designer and maker based in London. She holds an MA from the Royal College of Art in Design Products (class of 2021), where she was awarded with a full scholarship by the Burberry Design Foundation. With a background in design and ceramics her work is characterized by an animistic perspective towards \'things\'. She explores schemas such as luxury, fetish and wonder for their power to create gateways to imaginary worlds. She uses these constructions to point to the rarity of the mundane, concluding that there is no need for a new reality but for a fresh pair of eyes.

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.
