Centaur by Anders Ljungberg

Object
 

Because of the functionalism movement of the 1900s, function as a concept, has until present, nearly always been about the practical aspects of an object. This is in contrast to the Baroque period, when emphasis was placed upon an object’s social function. This was particularly true for silver objects.

In this piece, two objects have become one. Together, they must completely depend upon one another in order to stand, and to be that which it is intended for them individually to be – table and bowl. Social and practical function.
