Traces of passionate collectors at Furniture Fair
Change focus from consumption and instead leave your objects in the hands of a passionate collector. Then you can get a cosy, hand knitted space out of wool, a living shelf, traces of our religious heritage and left-overs from aliens. Students from HDK exhibit at Stockholm Furniture Fair in Sweden 8-12 February.
Welcome to mingle with us on Tuesday 8/2 at 1 pm in the HDK stand V04:38 in the section ”Green House”.
A passionate collector, carefully categorizing traces of memories, stories and origin has inspired design students from HDK – School of Design and Crafts, University of Gothenburg. At Stockholm Furniture Fair in Sweden this year they have ”Traces ” as a theme.
The exhibited objects bear traces of furniture eaten by bugs, of our religious heritage, sea breezes and spilled wine. Historical traces lead you to woven birch bark, but also to left-overs from aliens.
Archive furniture let stories unfold, light and tools show traces of time and table tops encourage written messages. Inspiration is found from things like the classical bead mosaics, the shapes of lava and the fantasies from childhood.
Twenty two students represent the programme Design –Individual
Specialization at HDK. Together, they have chosen the theme and based
on this planned, designed objects, stand, printed materials and the
project blog “The Collector” .
Tuesday February 8 at 1 pm is the opening of the HDK stand V04:38 in ”Greenhouse” at Stockholm furniture Fair. Visitors are welcome during the period 8-12 February 2011.
