cup and glass
The real challenge of design is to make useful and beautiful tools for everyday use. Smeeing was invited to create new work for Habitare, the furniture fair in Helsinki. For the exhibition Table, Cup and Glass - basic everyday tools he was asked to examine once again the idea, shape and use of everyday objects. Influenced by the design and thinking of Kaj Franck, Smeeing believes that an everyday cup and glass should have a subtle and friendly presence. Inspired by the traditional Korean storage jars, the shapes of Onggi invite your attention to what they contain. As characters on the table or shelf they will hopefully stimulate a long-lasting relationship with their users.
