2022-02-07

Group show invited by Paola Bjaringer and Misschiefs at Linnégatan 4, together with Anna Nordström, ButchXFemme, Lotta Lampa, Isa Andersson, Maria Pita Guerreiro. The concept of Fine Dying was inspired from “Professions of a Woman” by Virgina Woolf written in 1931, wherein she writes about the conditions for female creativity.

Sara Szyber is showing a collection of unique glass pieces ranging from bottles, vases, drinking glasses, salt holders and a goblet in shape of an hourglass. The glass pieces are irregular, stained and have been marked with a special made skull stamp. “I have been working with the concept of Memento mori, with unbalance and decay. In this I see both the ephemeral and something absolutely solid – as death itself.” On display February 7-27.

 

The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund

2021-10-07

On 6 October 2021 Sara Szyber was honored The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund Scholarship.
The motivation: “The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund Scholarship is awarded in 2021 to furniture designer and interior architect Sara Szyber for a furniture design that is firmly rooted in the Swedish furniture tradition and at the same time takes a new direction through its own design language and new production techniques, as in the Check Mate armchair. An armchair with a strong presence through a decorative checkerboard pattern, coated directly on the armchair’s visible birch plywood frame, creating an interaction between the two-dimensional grid and the armchair’s three-dimensional spatiality. This is tradition and innovation at its best.” Many thanks indeed!
