The work “100 Goblins” is the first Master’s studies project focussing on design. The assignment was somewhat intimidating also for experienced designers or landscape architects – the task was to design a series of small objects and a respective landscape design solution inspired by the traditional Estonian elements.
As the author wished to pay homage to one of the best-known Estonian folk tales, the series came to be based on the goblin. It is a combination of Estonian defiance and stubborn silence. The objects of the series ooze with both discomfort and pain, fun and cunning. The Goblin family includes a bench with twelve legs almost each of them as a separate element, a lamp bending over people’s head as if a goblin’s bony hand, a railing reminiscent of a row of broken twigs stuck in the ground, and a metal triangle resting on three legs turning into a natural shelter covered with plants in the summer.
