Alexander Lervik, Li Pamp and Petter Thorne speak to Marcus Fairs about the line between art and design in this talk filmed by Dezeen for Aritco in Stockholm.
The speakers were gathered by lift manufacturer Aritco to discuss what distinguishes the disciplines of art and design, and to debate the importance of differentiating between the two.
The talk took place in an exhibition of Alexander Lervik’s artworks titled Imaginations at Sven Harrys art museum in Stockholm. Lervik is a Swedish product designer and artist, whose work is often concerned with questioning the line between art and design. His projects include a watch with a perforated metal face, and a chair made of wooden rods like a bed of nails.
Appearing alongside Lervik on the panel was Li Pamp, a Swedish television presenter and design expert known for hosting shows about antiques. Pamp’s career began as an art historian and curator of design artefacts at Swedish action houses Bukowskis and Stockholms Auktionsverk.
Also on the panel was Swedish product designer Petter Thörne. Thörne is co-founder of Swedish design collective Skaparkollektivet Forma. The collective won a Dezeen Award in 2019 for its installation 17,000, which consisted of a wooden superstructure that bears 17,000 individual artworks that represent minors at risk of deportation from Sweden. He studied at Konstfack in Stockholm and the Royal College of Art in London, and teaches craft and design at Grimslöv Folk High School in Sweden.
