The collection includes PEACE DOVES, made of Parian china, a material that is seldom used in lighting. Parian is a china that contains a lot of glass and has a shiny, tactile surface. In daylight the material is opaque and has an almost sculptural character. In twilight, the thin Parian china develops glass-like qualities and lets through a warm light. PEACE DOVES have previously featured in the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, New York, the INDEX Interior Design Show, Dubai and in Sweden. Production is located in Sweden.
Olga Popyrina goes her own way, relying on the centuries-old expertise in industry and craftsmanship at the Rörstrand Center in Lidköping. “If we do not make use of the knowledge we have acquired and the traditions we have built up for generations, in the end we will not have any high-quality art or commercial objects quality to offer. We will not have anything to trade with… I have met many wonderful, knowledgeable and clever people in Lidköping who have not given up, despite industrial and economic crises. They have given me the strength and courage to continue working.”
At the Rörstrand Center Olga Popyrina works intimately with, among others, colleagues from the PrintDesign company, renowned for their work with the Nobel dinnerware and the official royal dining ware in porcelain.
