Three bowls designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Skultuna

Swedish architects and designers Claesson Koivisto Rune have made a new design called “Ballerina” for the Swedish brass manufacturer Skultuna. It’s a set of small polished brass bowls with a playful feature, when touched the convex bottom makes the bowls dance, projecting golden light reflexions.

The ballerinas are perfect to collect your keys, small change etcetera. Or to serve nuts, wrapped candies and such, says Eero Koivisto.

The bowls are also beautiful as they are, stacked together.

When looking into a bowl, the polished concave inside distorts the reflection so that the actual shape appears flat. In reality, their convex bottoms make the bowls rock, shiver – yes, dance – when touched. A playful feature. When in movement, they also project “dancing” golden glimmering light reflections around and on the ceiling. We like to think of them as jewellery for the table, says Mårten Claesson.



Ballerina will be launched at the coming Stockholm Furniture Fair in February.
