KEEPSAKE consists of two wooden shells that can be used separately as small bowls, or together as a closed capsule. It is something in-between a sculpture and a product. Like a sculpture, it is pleasurable to the eye and hand, and can be appreciated with no other utility value. But it is also a container with room to hold other small treasures – a keepsake for keepsakes.

Keepsake’s shape is derived from a walnuts shell and is part of an ongoing project the designer works on with different objects inspired by the same form.

Keepsake will be shown in the exhibition Food Work in Designtide Tokyo. Food Work is an independent project initiated by Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll, two of the founders of Norway Says. 21 designs by 8 Norwegian designers are to be shown at Tokyo Midtown Hall during Designtide Tokyo 2012 from October 31st to November 4th.
