Pinta

2 Feb

Pinta is a project I did in collaboration with my friend Ola Andersson. We’re exhibiting it at Stockholm Furniture Fair from 3-7 February 2015, as a part of Survival: The Craft of Adaption project.

Pinta is a playboat for kids of preschool and early school age. It offers various play possibilities on the inside, while being rich in imaginative powers on the outside.
Pleasant tactile experience of cork and textured wood, combined with gentle rocking movement, create a cosy womb-like enclosure. Its image is a visual reference of all the grand adventures: from pirates to early explorers like Columbus and Magellan. Pinta recalls boat on an open sea, boat as a shelter and boat as a product of woodcraft traditions.

Our friends Martin Horgan, Juan Cappa, Petter Olsson and Adrian Coen helped with the build.
