Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A pair of granite bookends for the launch of ‘Why Materials Matter’ by Seetal Solanki of Ma-tt-er for London Design Festival 2018

To celebrate, Seetal commissioned a few artist/designers to create bookends to support the book from one of their material driven projects. These bookends are closely linked to Theodora’s project "From The Ground Up" as they use the foundation of that project as their material. The shapes are strong as the material itself and let the material be the main feature of the object.

Material: Honed granite

Artist Profile

Born: 1986

Hometown: Reykjavík

Based in: London

Theodora Alfredsdottir is a product design studio based in London.

Theodora is an Icelandic product designer. She holds a bachelor’s degree in product design from the Iceland Academy of the Arts (2012) and a master’s degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London (2015).

Storytelling through objects; Theodora’s work revolves around the narrative an object can inhabit and exploring ways of objectifying that narrative. She's interested in the way an object can act as documentation of its manufacturing process; a record of what went on between the machine, tools, craftsman and material as well as it can communicate its origin and former life. In short, the object creates its own factual narrative. That often leads to the discovery of unexpected qualities as well as it gives the user a subtle opportunity to reconsider our material world and explore value in a different way.
