Julien Renault’s design process usually starts with an inspiration from his environment. He treasures the beauty found in everyday objects and the traces of manufacturing processes, hence his fascination for industrial standards. Their shape can create a spark in Julien’s mind and might result in a new project. Image: Board Table for A&B Home
Karin Widnäs has spent a significant part of her long artistic career on designing and making architectural elements in ceramics. ”As a material, clay is both intriguing and inspiring. For me, an important starting point is a dialogue between architecture and the ceramic elements specifically designed for it. The right selections in clay, shape and firing create a harmonic final result.”
