#EXHIBITION #ORREFORS #INGEBORGLUNDIN

    There was an informative and nicely curated exhibition in Stockholm earlier this year focusing on women designers of decorative arts in the early 20th century: Anna Petrus, Sylvia Stave, Tyra Lundgren, Gerda Strömberg. This similar exhibition in Malmö covered a much wider range of disciplines, all the way from fashion to architecture, though most of it was a survey of post war design by women. I was surprisingly most excited to see the beautifully displayed glass by Ingeborg Lundin who worked at Orrefors. She had a unique and very poetic approach to the material and breathed fresh air into Orrefors during the 1950's and 60's. The much adored  Äpplet ( apple) was first shown at the Milan Triennale in 1957 and became an instant classic.  Personally I'm also very fond of her best abstract Ariel vases.
