Studio Stine Mikkelsen Presents Solid Formations
Stine Mikkelsen is a Copenhagen-based material researcher and manipulator working within the field of experimental product design. With a background in textile design, materials have a primary role for her in both the process as well as in the final objects. By challenging and refining methods from this field, unexpected things occur which lead to new ways of making and producing.
Inspired by Italian geology, Stine Mikkelsen presents Solid Formations, a collection of sculptural objects with two newly developed composite materials. Composites where respectively marble and volcanic ash are the primary materials.
The shapes of the objects are inspired by the forces of nature and the contrast between the natural landscape and the geometric formations created by humans in for instance quarries where natural resources are excavated.
The universe of Stine Mikkelsen is very intuitive and speaks to human curiosity. Through creating textures that do not allow for immediate determination of the material or production method, she wants to evoke wondering in us all and provide us with an opportunity to enter into a dialogue with the objects.
