Stockholm 2013: Oslo designers StokkeAustad and Andreas Engesvik will present blown-glass trees as part of Stockholm Design Week, which begins on Monday.
The Woods comprises clusters of glass bubbles with differing proportions and coloured tints, supported on solid glass stems.
"The inspiration was found in the forests and the lights of the North," says Engesvik. "A tree changing colours and transparency through the seasons is a fascinating process which was captured in this glass object."
Each set comprises seven trees in two clusters. One represents spring with a mixture of greens and the other represents autumn with a combination of pinks, oranges and greys.
They'll be on show at Designgalleriet, Odengatan 21, 114 24 Stockholm, from 5 to 9 February.
Andreas Engesvik was co-founder of Norway Says and founded his own studio in Oslo in 2009. His previous work includes coloured screens in collaboration with Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken and Bunad Blankets inspired by the textiles of Norwegian folk costumes.
