Evolution in Glass, Konstfack University College of Arts, Craft and Design

At Spazio Rossana Orlandi this week, nine students from the Konstfack University College of Arts, Craft and Design, Stockholm will be showcasing Evolution in Glass, a tribute to the unending versitility of the medium.

Ivar Björkman, Konstfack President explains the concept: ‘The Nobel Laureate in literature, Joseph Brodsky, once said; “The purpose of evolution, believe it or not, is beauty. For it is beauty that survives it all and generates truth simply by being a fusion of the mental and the sensual”. Glass is a material that in different ways represents evolution. It survives no matter what happens. We encounter it everywhere in our daily lives and throughout Swedish design history we have been making use of it in different ways: Swedish grace, Swedish modern, Scandinavian design.’
