BY DOING SO SHE AIMED TO CREATE A CEREMONY THAT CELEBRATES THE TENSION BETWEEN ROUGH AND FINE, MACHINE MADE AND HANDMADE, INDUSTRY AND HUMAN.

SHE HAS ALWAYS HAD A HUGE FASCINATION WITH TIE PLATES AND STEAL BRACKETS – SIMPLE CONSTRUCTION ELEMENTS THAT HOLDS MOST OF OUR BUILDINGS TOGETHER. THEY ARE USUALLY HIDDEN, NOT MEANT TO BE SEEN, THEY ARE MADE OUT OF FUNCTION RATHER THAN FORM – THEY CONTAIN AN UNINTENDED BEAUTY. FOR THE EXHIBITION SHE WISHED TO APPLAUD THESE STANDARDIZED METAL ELEMENTS IN HER FURNITURE PIECES, NOT AS DECORATION, BUT AS FUNCTIONAL ELEMENTS, TYING TOGETHER EACH PIECE.

HYSTERIA IS A COPENHAGEN-BASED WORKSHOP AND DESIGN STUDIO FOUNDED BY ARCHITECT PIL WHITTA. SHE IS DRIVEN BY THE URGE TO CREATE, SENSE AND GIVE FORM WITH HER OWN HANDS, MAKING BOTH SCULPTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL OBJECTS. SHE’S DEVOTED TO SIMPLICITY AND HONESTY – BOTH IN AN AESTHETIC PERSPECTIVE AND IN HOW SHE WORKS. HER FASCINATION OF JOINERY AND CONSTRUCTION IS AN EVER-PRESENT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION, CREATING FRANK AND QUIRKY OBJECTS WITH VISIBLE DETAILS AND A MINIMALISTIC EXPRESSION.

ALL THE PIECES ARE HANDMADE BY PIL WHITTA AT HER STUDIO IN COPENHAGEN.
