Text of Teroforma Autumn/Winter 2010 Catalog

  • Autumn Winter 2010

  • Theres a furniture maker in the south of Sweden

    named Nirvan Richter whom we particularly admire.

    His style is clean and effortless and we like his

    sense of ethics just as much as his sense for color

    and form. He said something once that has been

    particularly useful to us at Teroforma over the past

    year and a half. He said, a slower pace in life is

    about accepting everything: who you are, what

    you feel. Learning to give up your dreams, creates

    the peace to see them through. When we first

    heard those words, especially from someone whose

    creativity and humanity we greatly admire, they

    were incomprehensible to us. At the time, we were

    starting our own business and pursuing our dream.

    How can you ever let go of your vision? How can you

    accept things as they are when by definition you are

    trying to change them? The answer is that sometimes

    you have no choice. Sometimes circumstances force

    you to consider that, perhaps, the things you have

    worked for and built may not be yours to keep.

    While we have been lucky to keep what we have

    worked for and built, and even luckier to see it grow,

    we have also seen enough recently to understand the

    alternative. And what we have learned for ourselves

    is what our favorite Swedish furniture maker left

    poignantly unsaid: the things you find a way to give

    up in pursuit of your dreams are the things you didnt

    really need in the first place. The distractions, the

    wrong turns, the noise. So, in our own small way we

    have taken our new-found wisdom to heart, clearing

    away the unnecessary and rediscovering the beauty

    in simplicity. And as you will see, we have been

    busy. Our new creations reflect some exciting new

    directions, many of which may seem both fresh and

    familiar all at once. And perhaps that is why we felt

    it was OK to stop, to put our pens down for now and

    to take stock of what we have created for this season:

    the feeling that we had reached a point of balance

    and that somehow none of it could have happened

    any other way.

    Heres what we know (right now)

    Wildflowers & PowerlinesLaminated Birchwood, Pure Cotton, 80# Cardstock, Hahnemuhle German Etching Paper

    Made by Teroforma with designer Leah Duncan (Texas), ry Trays (Sweden) and Nandini Fabrics (India)

    Austin, Texas-based graphic artist Leah Duncans Wildflowers & Powerlines is the inaugural pattern in Teroformas newly launched Artists Canvas Collection, where an artists vision is brought to life in a small selection of our products available just for the season. Leahs work for Teroforma explores the intersection between the manmade and the organic by challenging the roles that each plays in the definition of beauty in an urban landscape. Inspired as much by the haphazard geometry of broken glass on the side of the highway as by Ladybird Johnsons famous central Texas bluebonnets, Wildflowers & Powerlines mixes visual metaphors and hidden elements intended to foster a more personal connection between owner and object.

    Avva Bowls & Boards

    Handcrafted Vitreous Stoneware, Beechwood

    Made by Teroforma with designer Louisa Taylor (London) and Cermica

    Artstica Vale do Neiva (Portugal)

    Avva Pinch&Pour Bowls A small pitcher and a small bowl they stack in virtually any configuration and are the perfect size for any number of spices, herbs, condiments, sauces, syrups and dressings. They even accommodate a

    large tea light to become an impromptu votive. Whether on the table or by the

    stove, we have a sneaking suspicion they will become indispensable wherever you

    put them. Available in a range of soft neutrals in sets of 2 or a gift set of 4.

    Avva Large Bowl&Board One large stoneware serving bowl (perfect for salad) and one large cutting board

    with varied lateral grooves to catch crumbs (perfect for bread). Alone, they are pleasing and beautiful objects, but together they are more than the sum

    of their parts. The natural beech wood board works as a lid for the bowl, so

    they can be stored together or keep last nights leftovers fresh in the fridge for

    just a little while longer.

    Handcrafted Beechwood, Maplewood, and Cherrywood

    Made by Teroforma with designer Thea Mehl (Oslo), Drevotvar (Czech Republic), Bill Baumgartel (Pennsylvania) and J.K. Adams (Vermont)

    Avva S+P Mills Using the Avva shape like building blocks, Olso-based designer Thea Mehl sought to design pieces that would sit firmly and compactly in the hand, and be visually subtle so they could remain on the table at all times. Set of 2 mills with ceramic grinders for salt, pepper and spices.

    Avva Serving Boards The signature complementary angles of the Avva series allow these varied size serving boards to store compactly or to work in concert to create a larger serving area when snugly fit together on the table. Sold separately, these highly durable, Northeastern US maplewood boards are easily cared for.

    Loft Tools Working with Pennsylvania-based master woodcarver Bill Baumgartel, industrial designer Thea Mehl took inspiration from her childhood, when she watched her grandfather build model airplanes in his attic workshop, to craft these propeller-shaped spreaders, pickers and spoons. In a nod to her creative lineage, Loft means attic in Norwegian.
