W&S BOOKEND / Story
Inspired by the space where digital and physical forms meet, Wang & Söderström’s Boulder Bookend is a decorative and functional object that serves as a miniature piece of art. The organically shaped 3D model is first developed in the designers’ studio, before the bookend is 3D printed and moulded in porcelain at a ceramic factory. Boulder can be used for supporting books on shelves or desks in many different spaces and contexts.
Wang & Söderström is a Copenhagen-based transdisciplinary creative duo composed of Swedish designer Anny Wang and architect Tim Söderström. Anny Wang studied spatial and furniture design at the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Tim Söderström studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together, they founded Wang & Söderström in 2016. Their work, which focuses on digital/physical exploration, has been realized internationally, with commissions from renowned cultural institutions, leading fashion brands, and some of the largest media and communication platforms. For HAY, they have designed the Wang & Söderström Collection.
