Each piece in the Fold collection showcases the natural fluid qualities of handblown glass, with folds and dents blown into the form as a visual rebellion against uniform factory moulds. The bold colours are set against contrasting flexes and can be used as both table and pendant lights.

PAST & PRESENT / OLD & NEW

  

Some Wonderland from Scandinavia, courtesy of Norwegian designer, Cathrine Kullberg. Here comes ‘Land In Between’. A sweep across the tangled landscapes sprawling from the edges of our big cities to the green rim of the uncultivated forest. An iconographical investigation in five layers.

The Land In Between strives to hold both Nature and Culture – recklessly mixing infrastructure, transport, traffic, housing, industry and trade – and people living their various Nordic Welfare State lives – while Nature intersects unyieldingly. The Land In Between has it’s own aesthetic distinctiveness, iconography, often ignored or de-romanticised. Birch veneer, leather lace and led lighting. 70x40x30 cm

On display at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art until Ocotber 21st 2012 (in Zealand near Copenhagen, Denmark).
