The bastards have landed
As a craftsman and designer I have access to a design register. I work with glass, and in the world of glass there are standards and concepts regarding what things look like – sort of conventions as to how to create functional things such as bottles, vases and drinking glasses.
This register is not just an opportunity for me to produce beautiful, usable and sellable objects, but also – through the associations linked to this design language – a key to other people.
I use these conventions to bend reality and extend the objects so as to make them something more than merely practical, beautiful items. I see them rather as reflections of a design and material culture. Maybe this is my own design culture: a concentrate of impressions and experiences. The result of living in a world in which design is constantly with us as a kind of guide and choreography to our existence.
