Description

Based on her graduation project, Stine Mikkelsen has created a collection of objects inspired by the rough harbour environment on the Danish island where she grew up. The project is based on the concept of how one can use textile design methods, to produce a collection of sculptural objects, which has a reference to the use of function.

Many traditional crafts are disappearing from the maritime community. Knowledge is on the brink of being lost forever. Through these objects, Stine Mikkelsen wants to visualize the importance and the qualities of such craft so that people might reflect on their cultural and historical identity. This is why each object is handmade while remaining true to the raw material and with the making process apparent in the final object.

”I am fascinated by objects I can keep on having a dialogue with; objects that make me wonder. If the meaning of an object is not clear I feel invited to explore and use my imagination.”

Stine Mikkelsen’s universe is very intuitive and speaks to human curiosity. Through creating surfaces that do not allow for immediate determination of the material or production method and through creating objects that do not have an easy-to-guess practical function, she wants to evoke wonder in us all and provide us with an opportunity to enter into a dialogue with the objects.

About the designer


Stine Mikkelsen is a Copenhagen-based material researcher and manipulatorworking within the field of experimental product design. With a background in textile design, materials have a primary role for her in boththe process as well as the final objects. Through challenging and refining methodsfrom this field, unexpected things occur which lead to new ways of making and producing. Through this, she not only challenges the way we understand textile andproduct design, she also modernises the notion of crafts.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
