this year’s designtide tokyo 2012 included the food work exhibition curated by torbjørn anderssen and espen voll which featured 21 designs by eight individual norwegian designers, including two pieces from kristine five melvær‘s still life series that reinterprets the traditional role of the still life especially in terms of its representation.

the ‘liquid light’ project is a table top environment-creating accessory made of a birch wood plate with a glass carafe and candle embedded into the solid foundation. the light from the candle is amplified in the convex nature of the glass bowl, illuminating its contents and creating a warm atmosphere during dark winter nights. the ‘soft bowls’ are also made of birch and look like inverted ideas of each other. where one contains lower walls and a central mountain, the other conceals the contents inside allowing them to peek out over the top. both create undulating landscapes in which to present food.
