The Norns

Chair 19 of 19

The Norns by Es Devlin

All stories are woven from the fabric of ones that have come before. The Norns celebrates the intergenerational transmission of stories. Putting the material traces of the object’s past life on display on each of its patterned faces, the revolving lamp invokes the telling of bedtime stories – the ritual of passing meaning from one generation to the next.”
