More About This Product

The Home Project’s objects originate from the relationship of people to their places and this can be felt in their use. This unusual design studio, based between Berlin and Faro, Portugal, is dedicated to making objects— exquisitely simple glassware, basketry and ceramics—informed by vernacular cultural research. The INTENSIVE CULTURE series is the result of a month-long exploration of crafts practiced in the southern Algarve and Alentejo regions. Albio Nascimento, curator of the four-year series DesignForFuture, an exhibition on sustainable design, and Kathi Stertzig, a Design Academy Eindhoven alumna who has taught at the Bauhaus in Weimar, observed how objects are made by local artisans, like Senhor Manuel and Dona Adélia in the Serra or a basketweaver living on the banks of the Odelouca River. They also watch to see how they are used by local inhabitants. These observations then serve as a guideline, focusing the design process on development of the object instead of its co-opting by the modernizers of the world.
