Erik Olovsson (Uppsala, b.1982) founded Studio E.O in 2013. The studio is based in Stockholm and works within the fields of furniture, product, and graphic design. After graduating in 2012 from the Konstfacks MA in the Storytelling program, he originally studied Fine Art and Photography and then Graphic Design. He worked then as an art director at the creative collective ACNE for 3 years.
The studio’s objective is to be recognized for its intuitive and experimental approach by encouraging mixed fields and techniques.
The project Indefinite Vases (2016), is an analysis of the solid and organic shapes, the transparency and the opaque. The indefinite melting material will interact with the geometric solid forms to deepen the relationship between space and object or better, between a fragile material and a solid one. The pieces are functional or decorative, they serve as sculptures or containers and the materials used are Portoro Marble, Amarillo Macael marble, Pink Onyx, Azul Bahia granite, Rosa Norvegia marble & hand blown glass.
“I am fascinated by the material’s weight, geological history, and permanence,”, says Olavsson. “Since glass is a new material for me to work with it gives an extra element of letting go of control that I like. At the time the glass is solidified in a specific form you’ve captured a moment of time.”
