> 2011 / installation / Gaarmann & Arhoj
4 day ceramic workshop installation at FORMLAND Spring 2011 interior trade show in Denmark.
Gaarmann & Arhøj is a collaboration between ceramic artist Louise Gaarmann and Anders Arhoj. In a rainbow coloured zone between art and design new products for the kitchen and livingroom are researched and developed. - Everything with a streak of joy, humour and a healthy serving of acid.
Cups, plates, bowls, moneybanks, candle holders and porcelain creatures are all pointing towards Japanese popculture and Scandinavian aesthetics in shapes and colours.
The workshop installation featured live clay throwing, glazing and painting and had a primary purpose of presenting the collaboration to the public, but also to add a feeling of craftmanship, studio atmosphere and tactile sense to the trade show.
