The geometry of Cubism, bounded by rigor and emotions
The celebrated Italian writer Luigi Pirandello claimed that objective truth does not exist, but rather there are as many truths as there are people living them. Therefore, everything is relative, just like Einstein theorized and Cubism depicted. By destroying perspective and incorporating the variable of time, artists behind the Cubism movement simultaneously represented objects from several points of view, transforming them into fragments of a suspended and indecipherable reality. Take the still lifes by Georges Braque, for example.
Or consider the works by the Danish artist Vilhelm Lundstrøm, who introduced Cubism to Denmark with an almost metaphysical approach, in which the reconstructed object, combined with a play of mirrors, transforms the environment and the perception of time.
Inspired by the principles of Cubism and the work of Lundstrøm, Raawii — a Danish design brand founded in 2017 by Bo Raahauge and Nicholai Wiig Hansen — gave birth to the Strøm collection.
Raawii ceramics have an archetypal form that renders them powerful and evocative. They transform their surroundings into a work of art,
transfiguring the standard perception of reality into a completely new form. Plus, they are crafted with a modern approach to sustainability that fully respects human rights and the environment. Made in Portugal, Raawii's objects are built to last and are sold worldwide in the best museum shops. As well as, of course, on YOOX.
