ELIN EPLET SANDSTRÖM

MY TALENTED FRIENDS: I've said it before, my dear friend Elin Eplet Sandström is amazingly talented in illustrations, art and animations, everything she does is inspiring, and every time I look at her work I envy her skills and patience in drawing. Some part of me wish I spent all this time with drawings, and less with other stuff. I'm not saying I want to become an illustrator, I just want to have little more skills of hers. I'm pretty satisfied with my future in interior architecture, I just like to get inspirered and see other works by talented people, here is one. See more of her work here. This is a self-portrait of hers. 

With my talented friends I will show and highlight works of my dear friends. Elin is my startpoint as we have been friends since high school, and that we now both graduate this spring together, but in different orientations.

PETTERSEN&HEIN

Pettersen & Hein a collaboration between Danish Lea Hein and Norwegian Pettersen has been around, at least over at instagram from the Stockholm Furniture Fair. When I realized that the blocks/stool/or what ever it was I found interesting below where I showed the vases by Lex Pott (the vases standing on blocks). I found out it also was Pettersen & Hein's work. And I agree with their thoughts about design / art. And in my own work I think about when does it become art or architecture. It's big questions, and it might be hard to answer them, and it also might be a very personal opinion. And I think the combination makes the designs more interesting some how, when a chair isn't just a chair, or when an object can be different things. 

Design or art? 

What happens when design is no longer comprised by function, but longs for the aesthetic and ethical freedom of art? American artist Richard Artschwager once said, “If you sit on it, it’s a chair. If you walk around it and look at it, it’s a sculpture”. Some objects invite for different ways of living and using a space by paying homage to materials, color and form rather than functional use, thereby taking on a clear unique, bold position, the end-result often being intriguing and extraordinary. When boundaries between design and art are effaced potential for magic occurs.” - Pettersen & Hein.

25

Lamp 25 by Kovac Family. 

We had this idea for a locally produced product using as eco friendly materials as possible. This wooden lamp is handmade in Sweden. To minimize CO2 emissions we wanted to make as small packaging as possible, this is the result, we call it “25” because it's made of 25 pieces, as simple as that.”

DARK BROWN

As it is almost three years ago I introduced the hanger for the world I felt I needed to update the colors a bit by adding a new, a beautiful dark brown that I think will go very well together with the other colors. Shop yours and have a look at it more here

I got a bit sad and disappointed when I walked by a stand at the furniture fair this tuesday. I'm really tired of large companies trying to copy or taking ideas from people, like us students. They claim they didn't know, but what a good research then, not. And it was also very similar to another product with another function. Oh well, I might not be able to do anything about it, just tell how I feel. Please don't steal a good idea just because you can.

DREAMING OF BERLIN

Dreaming away to Berlin. (Photo by Sanna Trotsman from our trip with our classmates two years ago) 

Turned out to be a slow week for me, as I didn't felt that well in the beginning of the week, and yesterday I ended up with a migraine. And today feeling totally groggy or as I'm having a bad hangover. Maybe a result of all stress I've been exposed to. Hopefully feeling better tomorrow, trying to find inspiration from nice technical drawings. Having Carlo Scarpa, Louis Khan, Lina Bo Bardi, Tadao Ando on my mind, if anyone knows where to look, let me know. Maybe a trip to the architecture and design museum would be good for me.

AIRSPACE

Solo exhibition Airspace by Robert Stadler at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris. Open until 4th of April. Read more here

“Throughout the work of the groundbreaking designer Robert Stadler there is an underlying experimental vein. He questions the status of the object, its function and its presence. Through a subtle shift of the frame, he accentuates the perception of the profession.” 

Also what my aim is in many ways when I think of objects and space in my own work. I like to think about obejcts/furniture more like sculptures. I like the idea of an object being something more, or being something you actually can't tell what it is for. I like to think the same about spaces, to question what it is, and what it could be. If art can be some kind of space, in my meaning it absolutely can. Why do we have to put lables on everything? I would like to make people aware of the space, and their own bodies. Create a room you just don't pass by, or ignore, or doesn't remember. That is my true vision, hopefully I can stay with those thoughts in the future. That's why the relation between space, body and object is so important and interesting.
