Bubo Bubo: Wooden Owl Sculptures

"Bubo Bubo" - the charming wooden owls are a result of a collaborative project of Norwegian designer duo Andreas Engesvik and Stokke Austad. They were created for the fair Designblok in Prague.

“We wanted to work with sculpture – without any specific function other than the purely decorative. This is a genre that is unexplored in our discipline and in our field. We find it interesting to exceed these limits, since it, in our opinion, are artificial divisions between these disciplines. A renewed interest in the field of craftsmanship, tradition and new categories – has brought us into an area and expressions that we want to explore further. Thus, reducing the gap between industrial design and what we know as arts and crafts.”
