Den svenske designskole Konstfack har netop haft 3 studerende på ICFF i New York, hvor de har udstillet en serie lamper med undertitlen Potentiel Energi.

John Astbury, Bengt Brummer og Karin Wallenbeck, går under navnet whatswhatcollective, og deres projekt er inspireret af grænseområdet mellem bevægelse og stilstand. Konceptet tager udgangspunkt i et billede af en sten, som balancerer på en bjergtop. Antydningen af bevægelse mod den faktiske stilstand af objektet, er det centrale emne i lamperne, og deraf navnet Potentiel Energi.

WhatsWhatCollective - in english

Konstfack at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York: From Stockholm to New York, from potential energy to light. Don't miss the release of potential energy! Konstfack was represented by three first-year master's students from the Master Group Formgiving Intelligence at this years 2010 ICFF in New York. Initiated by John Astbury, Bengt Brummer and Karin Wallenbeck, “Potential Energy” is a collection of lighting that explores this concept. The first project from the whatswhat collective, the exhibition will demonstrate the coexistence of movement and rest, providing a fluid dialogue that affects both space and light. Intrigued by the visual image of a rock perched on top of a mountain, the presence of both suggested and actual movement became the central theme for the work to follow, and it is from this that the concepts evolved. Each piece an exploration of how interaction can be encouraged to create movement and evoke transformation. To set the potential energy in motion. Supervised by Teo Enlund, professor leading the Master Group Formgiving Intelligence at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design the project was conceived specifically for the ICFF exhibition. www.whatswhatcollective.com
