Budo Bubo Owls

, , , , By Catherine

Talented Andreas Engesvik shared with us a new project he has been working on in collaboration with StokkeAustad, an Oslo-based design agency (Update 2019: The studio ceased its activities).

Bubo Bubo are two owls made out of solid wood. They were created for the fair Designblok in Prague, and their purpose is purely decorative:

“We wanted to work with sculpture – without any specific function other than the purely decorative. This is a genre that is unexplored in our disiplin and in our field. We find it interesting to exceed these limits, since it, in our opinion, are artificial divisions between these disciplines. A renewed interest in the field of craftsmanship, tradition and new categories – has brought us into an area and expressions that we want to explore further. Thus, reducing the gap between industrial design and what we know as arts and crafts.”

Two sizes are available:
Large: 29 x 23 cm
Small: 15 x 11 cm
