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).

THE NEW ARTISANS HAS ARRIVED!

After a year in the making, I am thrilled to announce the release of my first book!

It is a labor of love, it comes from a passion of mine (as you have all seen through Dossier37) and what I wish will be a long term commitment for all things creative and hand-made.

The new Artisans - 320 pages, 850 illustrations - features 75 artisans/artists/designers across 19 countries and is a great resource for contemporary living.

The 75 talents reinvigorate traditional techniques (glass, textile, wood, metal, ceramics, paper) through the creation of unique or limited edition, functional or purely decorative, inspiring, desirable, meaningful objects. The antithesis of uniformized, mass-produced, disposable, anonymous and low quality goods we are saturated with.

Please visit and ideally join the Facebook page, where regular updates are posted (interviews, comments, reviews..etc), and if you like it, please ‘like’ it!

It is published by Thames & Hudson in Australia, the UK and USA, but is also available in English language in a number of other countries (Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, Japan, Brazil, Spain…)
