Description

“Stillness is the only thing in this world that has no form. But then, it is not really a thing, and it is not of this world.”

At a time when the world came to a halt, marble atelier on.entropy tapped inwardly for sources of creativity and ways of continuing the making process. The result is a collection of objects made out of marble and blown glass, articles that had been lying dormant at workshops for decades – “Stillness”. Bringing new light into what is already there.

Re-envisaging form, function, and ways of being, with this collection on.entropy aims to explore the analogy between different cultures, materials, and their making process. Certain glass parts were blown in a family furnace in the 50s, marble items have been hand-sculpted as ornaments for religious reliefs, while some others are remains of a CNC method of carving.

With craftsmanship at heart and stillness as a condition, the collection ultimately wishes to highlight that their co-existence is not just a matter of mere chance, but a conscious attempt to sustain their heritage.

Set of 3 unique pieces.

About the designer


on ∙ entropy

on∙entropy is a marble atelier established in 2009 in Athens and London. Marble, an archetypal Greek material, takes on an unconventional role in on∙entropy\'s designs; they encapsulate the contradiction of being heavy and compact and at the same time vulnerable, fragile and translucent.Its diverse character is the core of the atelier’s founding mission: to experiment with marble and its entropy; its transformation potential & inherent limitations. The result is the craftsmanship of intricate and delicate creations, evolving its diachronic qualities in an imaginative & contemporary way. Created and run by sisters Niki and Zoe Moskofoglou, on• entropy is the fruit of 40 year family affair with marble in Greece. Niki Moskofoglou is an architect with an academic training in Design. Her work demonstrates an architectural detailing and instinct of how Space and Object can surpass mere function. Zoe Moskofoglou is a civil engineer with expertise in Sustainable Heritage. She cultivates her passion in the marriage of cultural and natural environment through academic research in Cultural Landscapes.

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.
