CSA × Svenskt Tenn

Svenskt Tenn, one of Sweden’s most well respected design producers, commissioned Carina to develop a series vases in glass which would reflect the values of the company. Following a deep exploration into the history of Svenskt Tenn, and the particular aesthetic of founder Estrid Ericson, with her special interest for the exotic from cultures the world over, Carina questioned what is exotic today. 

Nearly half a century later, when most of us travel frequently and have access to inspiration from many cultures, she considered that perhaps the exotic lies in nature after all. With this in mind, three vases were developed, Dagg, Stubbe and Kotte, three variations of forms, and three variations of surface patterns, with an idea to bring in Swedish nature on a large and small scale.
