The new stars in history's figures


The time we live in is characterized by an increasing interest in spirituality and energy, which is also expressed in what we surround ourselves with in our homes. Many people explore how to use astrology in their daily lives, and the interest in astrology, horoscopes, and the signs of the zodiac is increasing and doesn’t seem to fade anytime soon.

Spiritual focus

Each sign of the zodiac represent inherent characteristics of humans, and when we are aware of these traits, it can help support our intuition, provide a sense of peace, and make us trust in our ability to shape our future and happiness with our unique qualities serving as a guide.

With the new Astro sculptures by Kähler, the Danish sculptress Malene Bjelke is inspired by the symbolism and ideas from past Kähler work related to sculptures and figurines. The result is 12 sculptures representing each sign of the zodiac; beautifully moving the historic Kähler design heritage into the modern world with a spiritual outlook.

Open to interpretation

The sculptures are genderless, minimalistic, and can be interpreted in many ways. It’s important to Malene Bjelke that everyone can identify with the values of the figurines – even if you have a different sign of the zodiac.

She wanted the traits and the situation to be recognizable. Therefore, it's not the faces, but the composition of the sculptures that communicate the feelings and characteristics of each sign of the zodiac providing a dynamic interaction between the sculptures.

Each sign has a descriptive word attached to it, which is linked to the design of the individual sculpture. In this way, words and sculpture meet each other – and the energy is added by the human viewer via a unique situation.
