First stop was last night's opening of the 20Designers@Biologiska exhibition on show, somewhat bizarrely, at the city's biological museum. Normally the reserve of taxidermalogical dioramas, the ever-so quaint Biologiska Museum has been invaded by designers setting their works free amongst the wildlife (above "Flair" teaspoon by Swedish designer Jessica Kalleskog).The curation of the works—from emerging designers from across the globe—was intended to remove design from the "white box" of the gallery space, whilst the theme of nature's influence on design, that seemed to run throughout—the young curators admitted to us—was something of a happy accident.
The "MWC" (Minimal Wood Chair) by Swiss designer Florian Housewirth—with Siga Meimis's glass "Eye" lurking a little creepily in the brush.
Karin Auran Frankenstein's crab-like clock—seemingly set to pounce on an unsuspecting stuffed duck.
