Description

All of the vessels Tom von Kaenel makes are unique and handcrafted. The stones come from the surrounding marble quarries of the island. The Naxian marble is of white, grey, or yellow-brown colour, and its structure is crystalline. No measuring instruments other than compasses and scales are used in the production of an object – the eye decides on the final shape. This small deviation in symmetry gives the form its individual tension.

The sculptures are kept raw, with surfaces deliberately not polished so that the traces of the craft are visible. The crystalline surfaces shimmer, giving the object a unique liveliness.

100% natural stone not sealed, not protected against acid. Beautiful imperfect!

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.
