Salone-2011 / Elena Sommariva
We had already seen the 365 Knitting clock by Norwegian designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen, a sort of cuckoo clock that makes the passage of time tangible by creating a long knitted scarf day after day. This piece is a fine example of the philosophy of this designer, who last year opened a design studio in Bergen and Berlin to develop projects centred on function, interaction and sustainability but with an added personal and ironic bent.
Siren Elise brought two new equally ingenious products to the SaloneSatellite—the You+Me lamp (designed with Elisabeth Warkus), a wood and glass lantern that is recharged by a dynamo, you simply pull a cord, and Parasitz, a mobile and versatile chair that can be hung onto the trunk of a tree and conceived as an emergency seat when away from home.
