A great amount of people are forced to leave their homeland because of social, political and economical reasons. Anke Dold believes the way to help immigrants integrate into society is to open up to other cultures and improve exchange with locals. Therefore she designed a “Crokinole” board game and matching lamp with the help of “Café Schukert”: a language café in Dals Långed where refugees can meet inhabitants of the village around a cup of coffee. Using modern techniques such as CNC and laser cutting to work with the Desktop linoleum, Anke brought back to life an intuitive game, that doesn’t need any rules or common language for people from different countries to play together.
We believe the designer’s role is about looking beyond the surface – to make responsible decisions and to understand the ethical implications of one’s choices.
In partnership with Forbo, we have investigated the ethical implications of design through material, form and function. We have designed artifacts that embody various kinds of gatherings; the gathering of materials and the gathering of people – all about stimulating interaction through design.
Let’s talk, share and play!
