Arje's world by Matter and Shape

Griegst is pleased to announce a new archive installation titled Arje’s World, opening at the Griegst gallery, atelier and boutique in Copenhagen. In partnership with Paris based MATTER and SHAPE, Griegst presents the exhibition Arje’s World in homage to the founder Arje Griegst (1938 – 2016). 

Merman (2006)

A self-portrait in patinated bronze intended for a fountain. Made in Pietrasanta. Pictured side by side with a unique Merman ring (1978), also in patinated bronze.

Xanadu Vases

A line-up of the swirling, almost liquid Xanadu glass vessels intended for the scarce.

Candelstick No. 1

The organically shaped candlesticks can partly be seen as the beginning of the dynamic and sculptural large scale work that followed Arje's occupation later in his life.

Spiral Bracelet No. 7

 At once organic and stylized, the Spiral collection is hypnotic in its fluidity and warm glow, like locks of golden hair.

XANADU VASE

The word Xanadu, derived from the poem Kubla Khan by Samuel Coleridge, symbolizes a utopian realm of beauty and serenity.

XANADU VASES

The second edition of the Xanadu vase is now available in our showroom in Copenhagen and online.

AN OTHERWORDLY TABLESETTING

"The Xanadu vase is an art object in its own right, writhing with the extravagance and sense of movement that characterises my father’s work. Not only did we return to their storied glass factory, but we were also incredibly fortunate to be able to bring the vase to life with the invaluable help of the last living member of the product designer from the original Xanadu team.” - Noam Griegst
