Kristine Five Melvær has quickly established herself as one of Scandinavia’s most promising designers. With master's degrees in industrial design and graphic design, she builds a bridge between the two disciplines and focuses on communication of objects as a means of creating an emotional bond between object and user. Melvær has been awarded Newcomer of the Year and nominated for a number of awards sincluding Nordic Designer of the Year, Accessory of the Year and Young Designer of the Year. Her works have represented Norway in exhibitions worldwide. For Magnor, she has designed the art glass vases Seasons, Dew, Else, Marie and Liv as well as the candleholders Multi.
MULTI is a beautiful and innovative object with multiple functions, designed
by Kristine Five Melvær. Multi consists of two-coloured glass bubbles inside
the other, the interior of opaque glass and the outer transparent glass. It can
be used both as a candle lantern and as a vase. When the sunlight hits the
object, it will act as a light sculpture that forms coloured rings on the surface
where it is placed. The two bubbles can also be used individually as lamps,
vases or containers as jewellery. Multi is blown by experienced glass blowers
and is delivered in three colour combinations.
DEW is a series of art glass vases designed by Kristine Five Melvær. The vases are blown by proud glassblowers in sober colours with matte sandblasted stripes. The stripes on the outside of the glass and the colour of the inside create shadows that give a unique depth and texture to the otherwise monochrome volume. These sculptural vases can be used both with or without flowers and their assorted heights make sure they form a beautiful group when arranged together. Mouth blown and handcrafted in Magnor’s glass hut, each DEW vase is unique and they are currently available in four new colours.
