In a time when large scale production no longer takes place within the borders the city and has decreased within the country, designers tend to form small but strong units based on specific knowledge within materials, traditions and areas of application.
Örnsbergsauktionen wants to create a platform for the unique items and projects that form the basis for the design fields progression and specialization but is situated outside, in between or before the big producers where objects are reshaped to meet the demands of mass production and economic viability.
Örnsbergsauktionen is a self organized project that wants to open up the process between idea and finished product and reduce the distance between the designer and the user. The works all have in common that they are results of studio production without close connection to producers.
There is a space outside the global production processes and the exclusive antique trade. We want to show projects and voices that are initiated and realized in smaller cycles. In terms of time, economy and volume, says Simon Klenell, one of the persons behind this auction.
During Stockholm Design Week 2012 Örnsbergsauktionen will realize its first project, an auction of contemporary studioproduced design.
