Open Rust – manually rusted work of art

Open Rust

This exclusive edition of the Open series is hand rusted by the designer Jenny Nordberg in her studio, using a saline solution. When the process is finished, the surface is sealed by a topcoat of clear lacquer. The Open rust is available as bowl, wall bowl and hanger. 

When developing the Open series designer Jenny Nordberg looked for manufacturers who were willing to work with pre-existing tools instead of making new ones for these particular objects. This approach was a deliberate strategy to contribute to a more open-source-like mindset within manufacturing where tools usually are locked to one client only. Working with pre-existing tools also means that external and predetermined factors become part of the design process and final expression, something Nordberg appreciates.
