From The Fifty Fifty Projects:

Mia works as a ceramic artist and during several years she has worked with the theme “New Nature” where she finds, borrows and steals shapes from nature, be it moss, rocks, sticks or leaves. She casts abstracts and place them in non-natural surroundings – shapes in strict geometrical character. The results have until now ended up as ceramic materials, mostly porcelain. The step into other kinds of objects and products she reflects are following.

“My work, a kind of depiction of nature, has increasingly come to be characterized by anxiety and threat. Through the years, my courage to let myself be led by gut instinct and intuition has increased, which has made ​​my design more abstract.

The results are not always beautiful, often quite ambiguous, sometimes a bit dirty, something both the rub and seductive. That is also what I want to convey with this lamp, with its function, shape and choice of materials.

When I made ​​the model of what has come to evolve into a lamp, ashes from the volcanic eruption in Iceland dominated the news and that made ​​an impression in my design. It was the air, the oxygen in the bubble, the pure form versus the organic unidentifiable smoky and a bit uneasy derivative of a geometric shape, the base. I constantly want to keep moving, find new ways and shapes for my art but with a strong faith in the material possibilities and significance of the season.”

Taíde House by @ruivieiraoliveira – “The proposal should dialog with its surroundings in a friendly way and even if we would assume something new, the concept was not to disrupt completely with past… We felt that we could create something dynamic without hurting the surrounding environment. From this moment forward, the look for stimuli was inevitable. Looking around, to a sometimes marked terrain, we understand that the surroundings work as an amphitheater, in which the gaze of the neighbors, inhabitants of those unique shaped, inclined roof houses, is very proximate. Over there, streets are narrow, backyards are almost public and every word is listened. The scale of the house was a concern.” #architecture #house #minimal #villa #geometric
