1+1+1: Mirrors

Three designers from three Nordic countries and three mirrors: those ingredients originates twenty-seven unpredictables combinations on view during Stockholm Design Week.

1+1+1, Mirrors
1+1+1 is an experimental collaboration between established designers from three Nordic countries – Hugdetta from Iceland, Petra Lilja from Sweden and Aalto+Aalto from Finland.
The project examines and reimagines objects by having each studio design an object consisting of three distinct parts and then mixing the parts up into unpredictable combinations.

The project started in March 2015 at Design March in Reykjavik where each studio designed a floor lamp. The end-results – twenty-seven different lamp compilations were totally unpredictable, ranging from strange to exhilarating. Forms and material combinations emerged that would not have otherwise come to life.

For Helsinki Design week in September 2015 the group took on a new object – the cabinet, which was designed with the same three-part method. For both exhibitions, a set of rules were agreed upon but no information was shared during the process in order not to influence the design work.

During Stockholm Design Week the group launches the third volume: a collection of mirrors.
