Hiroshi Sambuichi at the Cistern

Cisterne, Søndermarken, Roskildevej, Frederiksberg

The installation, designed by the Japanese architect Hiroshi Sambuichi, brings water back into the subterranean space of The Cistern and uses natural light from above, controlled and directed by giant mirrors, to create a wonderful and disorientating experience with the space explored in deep gloom on broad walkways that have been constructed just above the water by Japanese craftsmen using timber from Japan.

MINDCRAFT15 - In Between

Designmuseum Danemark, Bredgade, Copenhagen

 

 ... the exhibition was first shown in Milan in the Spring and was designed and curated by the Danish-Italian partnership GamFratesi - Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi. Fourteen works of craft by nineteen leading Danish designers and craftspeople were chosen ....

The exhibition aims to move into the realm of conceptual art … an area where, using imagination - the mind of the title - GamFratesi challenges and blurs our view of what we might assume to be art and what we define as craft.

superobjekt gallery, Borgegade 15E, 1300 Copenhagen

By convention, design, architecture and crafts are absolute and physical manifestations, typically reflecting the time of their creation. At a point, when a building, a typeface, a teapot or a chair is finished, no part will be changed, removed or added. The design will manifest itself as a benchmark in time.

However, time as an abstract and relative concept is to most of us a somewhat disquieting and challenging realm to enter, hard to grasp and even harder to materialize.

Superobjekt gallery has challenged the established design scene and asked 7 experienced designers to create a physical comment to what time means to them and by that revealing inspiration, thoughts, doubts and references normally hidden in their final work.

Den Nya Kartan

Form Design Center, Malmö

 

An initial report by Jenny Nordberg, begun in 2013 and completed through 2014, looked at how small-scale production of furniture, ‘gadgets’ and other design objects could be part of a sustainable community within Skåne, a clearly defined and relatively small region. The report considered ethical values in consumption and looked generally at production and at manufacturing skills surviving in southern Sweden. A number of designers were then paired with manufacturers and the work shown here in the exhibition were the product of the collaboration.

This is an exhibition from a competition that has been staged ten times by Svensk Form since 1998. Many previous exhibitors are now well established either within the Swedish design professions or internationally. It is open to students and to young designers under 36.
