COFFEE CUP REALISM

Invited designer to CUP exhibition

2021

Finding humor in a bad morning mood

Swedish designer Kajsa Willner is one of 38 international artists and designers invited to take part in the exhibition CUP, initiated and curated by danish design duo Pettersen & Hein and art historian Camilla Schmidt during the pandemic.

 

Willner’s project, Coffee Cup Realism, is a personal and humoristic interpretation of the drama that all too often unfolds during the designer’s own morning routine. Rather than being a peaceful pause with time for reflection, the tedious morning chores frequently result in a time of stress and frustration with coffee spilled everywhere. A kitchen sink realistic scene staged in a domestic setting as an unpolished, naturalistic representation of ordinary life.
