The Empaths

The Empaths is a collaborative project between Ralston & Bau and the ceramic artist Cecilie Haaland, that considers the relationship between the artistic, the artisanal and the designed, in a range of domestic objects that demonstrate empathic qualities by making life easier through simplicity, single-purpose functionality and a sense of welcome. The Empaths was selected to represent the best of Norwegian design in 2015, showing at Tent London  in the 100% Norway exhibition.
