Description

These functional sculptures are born from simple three-dimensional sketches out of paper, that then were translated into experimentation with the properties of stainless steel sheets.

The first mirror to be developed in the series was the square, which started off as a challenge to transform a mirror-polished sheet into something with a bit more character, without adding or subtracting from its original form – therefore creating no waste. The design utilises how easily these sheets can be bent and manipulated and how different surface treatment changes their appearance and function.

Each of the mirrors is laser cut and folded twice, and then the brushed section is finished off by hand.

The project aims to increase general interest in the production of objects, make the understanding of materials and their transformation more accessible and increase knowledge of our immediate environment. This connection to the production of everyday objects aims to raise awareness and respect for resources and be reflected in increased consumer responsibility.

About the designer


Theodora Alfredsdottir

Theodora is an Icelandic product designer based in London. She holds a bachelor’s degree in product design from the Iceland Academy of the Arts and a master’s degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London in 2015.

Theodora’s work revolves around the narrative an object can inhabit and exploring ways of objectifying that narrative. She\'s interested in the way an object can act as documentation of it’s manufacturing process; a record of what went on between the machine, tools, craftsman and material as well as it can communicate it’s origin and former life. That often leads to discovery of unexpected qualities as well as it gives the user a subtle opportunity to reconsider our material world and explore value in a different way.

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.
