Petra Lilja Design Gallery fall program

The seminar series Design Research in the Gallery will explore this, materially, verbally and in action during 2016. The invited design researchers will do talks, workshops, installations or activist-events open to the public. By facilitating these meetings the aim is knowledge making and creative exchange between the participants / visitors.

Going into the second part of the seminar series Design Research in the Gallery, it can be confirmed that the aim of knowledge-making and creative exchange have been successfully met in the first five seminars. During the fall of 2016 the series will continue to explore the junction between design research,  the gallery and the home – materially, verbally and in action, through the work of four new researchers.

The series starts on September 4th with Gunnel Pettersson, artist and senior lecturer at the School of arts and Communication (K3) at Malmö University. Link for more detailed information.

Exhibition during Stockholm Design Week 2016

1+1+1 is an experimental collaboration between established designers from three Nordic countries – Hugdetta from Iceland, Petra Lilja from Sweden and Aalto+Aalto from Finland.
During Stockholm Design Week the group launched their third volume – a collection of mirrors at Il Caffe Söder, February 9-13, Tue-Fri 8-10, Sat 9-19.
The 1+1+1 project examines and re-imagines objects by having each studio design an object consisting of three distinct parts and then mixing the parts up into unpredictable combinations.
1+1+1 is a rare kind of collaboration with no compromises as each studio designs their objects according to their own philosophy. Combining the different parts into new combinations is an almost brutally concrete form of cooperation.
