Cut in Number

With Cut In Number, Ingegerd Råman has applied Orrefors’ extensive tradition of cut glass as starting point. She has stepped away from the tradition of polished cuts, leaving the cuts matte instead, which emphasizes the geometrical surface of the clear glass. Cut In Number consists of four cylindrical objects: two bowls and two vases, which all come with two different cut patterns. When the light meets the crystal and those carefully positioned lines, it becomes clear that mathematics also can be poetic. The collection launched in 2021

My design is distinct - with the material in focus and everything redundantly stripped away. What remains is self-evident function and simplicity. In usable things there is a complexity. What is not done well is revealed immediately.
