What defines a home?
We want to look at the similarities and differences between items from homes all over the world. What happens with products after they have left the store? Objects tell stories of moments in our lives, people we have met and places we have been to.
We have collected personal stories about objects. Some of these objects are reproduced in red plastic with the owners story prined on the surface. At the Milan fair 2005 The objects were spread to different places all over the world and we asked the new owners to send us images and stories from their homes. This is a long time survey where we collect stories and explore what makes people love or hate an object.
I first saw it this summer and I was totally determined to buy it, 'cause it was something that I really wanted. I thought it was nice because it is napkins. But I never bought it then. I think it's adorable, and then I often have a bit of a cold. I've also been rather sad during this past year. So then it's nice to do something nice out of crying. So that crying becomes something positive.
