On the 9th floor of the factory is the Arabia Art Department and gallery. The factory offers an artist-in-residence program — with no expiration date — where artists get discounted studio space and access to Arabia's facilities in exchange for freelance work within the company. The current department includes famed ceramicist Kim Simonsson, Kristina Riska (whose amazing, nearly 5-feet-high sculptures are shown here), and Fujiwo Ishimoto. At the time of our visit, Riska had sent much of her work to Design/Miami, but she'll also be having an exhibition at the New York gallery Hostler Burrows this spring. We can't wait to see some more of these beauties in person!
