Designers: Mia Lagerman & Ehlén Johansson
Delivery (weeks): 1
With Bowl, designers Mia Lagerman and Ehlén Johansson set out to achieve the seemingly impossible. How, they asked, can you balance a sphere on a flat surface? Because Bowl is glass, you can see the ingenuity of their solution: to nestle the sphere inside a ring. Bowl almost hovers above a table. This ethereal piece comes in three rich colors: brown, green, and pink.
Pile an orchard’s worth of fruit or an armful of flowers into Bowl and easily carry it to the table. The sloping sides fit Bowl snugly into your hands and the hollow underside keeps it from getting too heavy.
Mouthblown and hand-finished, Bowl is anything but run of the mill.
Winners of numerous design awards, Mia Lagerman and Ehlén Johansson met while on staff at Ikea. Lagerman had studied at Stockholm’s Konstfackskolan and at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, while Johansson graduated from the HDK-School of Design and Craft at Gothenburg University. The two maintain their own practices but collaborate frequently, creating playful yet spare furniture, lighting, accessories, and bathroom fixtures for wide range of manufacturers.
