Editions in Craft at Konst-ig Books – Stockholm Design Week 2011

 

February 8th – 13th

At Konst-ig Books / Åsögatan 124
At Konst-ig Books / Stockholm Furniture Fair 2011 Stand AG:35B

Editions in Craft is pleased to present Coiled by BCXSY and the Siyazama Project for the first time in Sweden at Konst-ig Books during the Stockholm Design Week.

Coiled is a series of three different sized vases. Covered with strands of colored glass beads, the bases of the vases are made of recycled pet bottles and left over fabric.

The vases are the outcome of a ten day workshop set up by Editions in Craft in March 2010 in which the young design cooperative BCXSY (Boaz Cohen and Sayaka Yamamoto) were invited to collaborate with Siyazama Project, a collective of women from the rural province of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa who work with traditional beadwork. BCXSY are recent graduates of The Design Academy in Eindhoven and are based in the Netherlands.

Coiled is now an ongoing series. Each vase is handmade and different in shape, colors and patterns, determined by the Siyazama Project.

Coiled has since been exhibited at Spazio Rossana Orlandi at the Milan Design Week, Design Act in Moscow, Eindhoven Design Week and Tokyo Design Tide amongst others.
