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

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

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.
