'Kerameikos' vessels by Siba Sahabi

Young Amsterdam-based designer Siba Sahabi has created a collection of handcrafted vases which reference the ‘aesthetic that was originally established by ancient Greek ceramicists.’ Named after the potters’ quarter in Athens, ‘Kerameikos’ is made entirely out of paper and ‘the series conforms to the present day value placed on antique Greek ceramics where the artistic skills and characteristics determine the price of the object rather than the material.’

Made from reinforced paper pulp: 'A piece of forest' by Modern Times

DuraPulp is a bio-degradable, composite material invented by the Swedish manufacturer Södra. It is made from wood pulp and PLA (polyactic acid, a biologically degradable polymer produced from corn starch) and can be moulded or pressed into any thinkable shape. After being heated the material becomes stiff and durable. The Swedish manufacturer Wästberg already developed a lamp with this promising material and at this year’s Salone Satellite the young Swedish designers Rasmus Malbert and Johannes Tjernberg from Modern Times presented this series of lamps made from DuraPulp. ‘A piece of forest’ is composed of a variable number of hexagonal shingles which are mounted on the wall or on screen or set together to a collar of small lamps. The light source is a short LED strip, glued into the shells.


The Swedish design and architectural practice Claesson Koivisto Rune realised, in close cooperation with the wood pulp producer Södra, this new table lamp for the young lighting label Wästberg. We met Ola Rune, co-founder of Claesson Koivisto Rune and Henrik Wettergren from Södra at tis year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair and talked about the intresting processing of this piece. Enjoy!
