Lland is the multidisciplinary art and design studio practice of Rachel Shillander.
Rachel comes from a background and formal training in architecture and fabrication. She has focused her career on blurring the boundaries between art and design, using sculpture as a way to develop her ideas about quality, space, place, and purpose. She has spent the past decade developing the concept, style, and aesthetic principals of “Organic Postmodernism,” a term she feels describes current thoughts and themes in art, architecture, and design.
Along with the studios in house and manufactured collections, the studio offers the below services.

"Things are either devolving toward, or evolving from nothingness"

"So, here I stand before you preaching organic architecture: declaring organic architecture to be the modern ideal and the teaching so much needed if we are to see the whole of life, and to now serve the whole of life, holding no traditions essential to the great TRADITION. Nor cherishing any preconceived form fixing upon us either past, present or future, but instead exalting the simple laws of common sense or of super-sense if you prefer determining form by way of the nature of materials -Frank LLoyd Wright on “Organic Architecture” or Organic Modernism, a coin termed by him, 1954, The Natural House
