Common Effort consist of a coffee table and a side table designed and crafted by Sanna Völker for the all-female exhibition ‘Sisters’ which was inaugurated on International Women’s Day in Barcelona.

What really matters is not the sculptures, but the spirit of fellowship which one tries to express. The value of the pieces lies in the moment when they have a direct bearing on life, when they help us to see more clearly, give us heart, help us to get to grips with life. But the pieces are not life. They are a reflection of life.
— Sonja Ferlov Mancoba

Struck by the sculptor’s words, hearing within them the core of female friendship, Völker longed to materialize this philosophy in her own work. By inviting her friends to join her in the workshop and in the crafting of the tables, the pieces become an expression of female community and an unforgettable memory.
