Willow glass is a collection of mouth blown glass vessels. - We have used locally grown willow to weave the moulds, as basket weaving is common in the region in southern Sweden, Skåne. With our mould-making technique, we can produce small blown glass series. The shape of the moulds is changing after each glass object because the willow branches change their angle or burn away. A serie production but each vase is unique.
Willow Glas has been produced for "Den Nya Kartan", the result of a collaboration between 24 designers and producers in Skåne at Form/Design Center in Malmö. The exhibition is curated by Jenny Nordberg and traveled to Kulturhuset in Stockholm in December 2015 and then to Vandalorum, in Värnamo in March 2016.
The project developed further for the exhibition, Welcome to Weden, Sweden’s contribution to London Design Biennale at Sommarset house in London in September 2016 and then was exhibited at Midori-so during Tokyo Design week in October 2016. The project has collaborated with Jonas Larsen.
このコレクションは、The new map（新しい地図）という展示会のためにデザインされました。展示会は、キュレーターであるJenny Norgbergによるもので、南スウェーデン・スコーネ地方を主に拠点とする２４組のデザイナーと生産者がコラボレーションし、その結果となった２４作品が展示されました。展覧会は、マルメのフォーム・デザイン・センターで始まり、ストックホルムのカルチャーハウスとヴェルナモのヴァンダロルムを経て、Welcome to Wedenという名の展覧会へと発展し、ロンドン・デザイン・ビエンナーレ、そして、東京デザインウィークで開催されました。この作品は、Jonas Larsenとのコラボによるものです。

Fisk Platta, 2016
The project began with a workshop that Disk, designed in Skåne, organized together with EXPO Limhamn and St. Eriks, a concrete contractor, in Staffanstorp. The aim of the workshop was to develop ideas for Limhamn’s public environment and to have an exhibition during EXPO Limhamnsvägen on 10th to 13th of March, 2016.
The history of Limhamn in Skåne is strongly associated with fishing and cement. In 1825 they already began to fish in Limhamn and in 1889 they started the cement plant operations. The concrete tiles can be used for sidewalks and squares, but also for private gardens. The idea is that the tiles can create an identity for the new Limhamn with reference to history.
