Remember the children’s game to draw a body by individually adding elements without seeing the previous player's creation?
1+1+1 is a Nordic design collaboration experimenting with a similar process to reimagine everyday objects. Hugdetta from Iceland, Petra Lilja from Sweden and Aalto+Aalto from Finland independently design their vision for the whole piece – with no communication across the team. The results are then jumbled in random combinations to re-create unexpected outcomes.
In spring 2015 the objects were lamps. Helsinki Design Week last autumn saw a mash up of cabinets. Next week in Stockholm 1+1+1 will present an unpredictable remake on the design of mirrors.
