​The Woods

The Woods is our second collaboration with design studios Andreas Engesvik, Oslo. We wanted to explore further the relationship between designers and decorative objects. Our ambition was, similar as with the Howdy Owl, to work sculpturally – without any specific function other than the purely decorative.

Craft and Design

A renewed interest in the field of craftsmanship, tradition and new categories - has brought us again into an area and expressions that we wanted to explore further. Thus, reducing the gap between industrial design and what we know as arts and crafts.

Forest

Our inspiration was found in the forests and the lights of the North. A tree changing colours and transparency through the seasons is a fascinating process that we wanted to capture in these glass objects. The unique, free standing glass sculpture The Woods, is a made out of hand blown glass. Each sculpture consists of seven trees – joined in two separate sections.
