WONDERCABINETS OF EUROPE IN AMERICA
Wonder Cabinets of Europe
“Wonder Cabinets of Europe in America” investigates Europe’s wealth of cultural diversity. A Project curated by Maria Jeglinska and Livia Lauber.The cabinet focuses on the design duo’s collaboration with a local glassmaker with whom they have been working over the past two years. The collaboration began whilst developing the Tipsy glasses for DesignMarketo, which later led to a commission from Swedish brand, Acne, to develop a series of amorphous vases and carafes. Many tests were necessary to find the perfect balance between temperature and time for producing interesting shapes. The project enabled the duo to extend their knowledge of glass, refine their collaboration and most importantly evolve with the glassmaker. The merging of skills was an essential part of the process.
Curated in collaboration with Maria Jeglinska.
