the ‘ivory’ exhibition will open during the berlin gallery weekend

Organized by the design gallery hvíla editions, the ‘IVORY’ Pin up invites twelve local and international designers to showcase limited-edition pieces, each with their own creative story. Gallery founder Anita Hansen curated the collection to celebrate ancient craft techniques envisioned with a contemporary and artistic sensibility. She notes: ‘The goal is to place ancient skills and knowledge into valuable contexts that can encourage future generations to advance their cultural significance.

explore tradition, cultural origins and cooperation

The exhibition opens a discourse around ivory as a metaphor and its projection on the practice of contemporary design. In new contexts, the limited-edition pieces reveal their stories and invite viewers to consider each object’s cultural origins, the global exchange of ideas, skills, raw materials, and the potential for cross-disciplinary cooperation.

The selection of works includes home accessories, kitchenware and furniture, fashion items and jewelry, most of them specially made for the exhibition. Each object was created through a hands-on approach that determines the final shape of the object. In addition, short films, photos and interviews document the production process, culture and mastery of each creator,
