Holmen Industrial Area, Vesterålen, Norway

Industry, weather, landscape, architecture & graphics combined:

4 rectangular structures housing a modern fishing facility – farming, trawling, processing and corporate HQ – arranged to camouflage industrial traffic, protect from a severe winter climate and safeguard the landscape. The composition of necessarily functional, durable materials in surprisingly strong colours make this a beautiful addition rather than an interruption.

Michèle Oberdieck RCA Work in Progress

Jan 25 - 2016

Had an interesting couple of hours at the Haworth Tompkins RCA Dyson Building in Battersea where visitors had (very trusting) free rein to wander the studios and get a bird's eye view of the workshops from glazed galleries – a glimpse into a particular working world. 

Among the exhibitors Michèle Oberdieck showed her glass objects resting on their sides, open-mouthed, cut polished edges, smooth, stretched and pinched-in forms and stand-out use of dazzling yellow, brown and pink: a wake-up combination. Looking forward to the end of year show.

Berlin designers Kolors are interested in colour, presumably, and have fluorescent cables, bags and jewellery in their portfolio as well as plain and beautiful porcelain flatware and off-white/neutral interiors with found objects and materials. Nice combo.
