TLmag 32 Extended: Contemporary Applied

This extended edition of TLmag’s 32nd printed edition highlights the energy and daring of the designers who throw themselves body and soul into the challenge of hand and material.

As their exhibition, Next of Europe, part of the 2022 Venice edition of Homo Faber was getting underway, Stefano Boeri and Jean Blanchaert spoke with TLmag about their vision on craft and the importance of supporting master artisans around the world.

Anders Herwald Ruhwald on what drew him to the work of Swedish modernist ceramicist, Carl-Harry Stålhane, and how his current exhibition, “Ruhwald vs. Stålhane”, explores this relationship through clay and glazing. The exhibition, curated by Love Jönsson, is on view at the Rian Design Museum through April 24th.

Ernst Gamperl creates large-scale wooden vessels, expertly crafting the material to reveal and express natural details and textures. In this careful and considered process, knots, bulges, splits, indentations, and scars are elevated, shown to be integral parts of the material’s history and lifespan.

Contemporary Czech glass art has created a major imprint in the world, and today is pulsating, full of life, and a vibrant component of the global scene. This new generation of glass artists is defined by a sense of artistic restlessness – a generation searching and experimenting.
