Family Portrait

Extracurricular project with product designer Björn Bernt

Rosenthal Design Award – Young Designers meet Rosenthal 2007/2008: Honorary Mention

Great-grandmother's tea set and granny's hobby merge into one, daddy's old socks find a new purpose: a loving portrait of an absurd family, cast with senselessness and sensuality. Structural remnants and rudimental artefacts melt into haptic ornaments of a family tradition, beautifully absurd and absurdly beautiful.

Crochet structures once soft to touch are now solidified, capturing moments, a clichéd version of a cliché. Touch and explore these family members and the traditions they represent, musingly and tongue in cheek.

Everything you see in the design section can be created to your individual taste. Just send me a message to enquire.
