Wall art?

front-large1

I have never really considered wall art for my home, but a few weeks ago I received an e-mail from a new Danish designduo making wall sculptures from different materials. WULFFWINDING wall design creates vivid, exclusive, dynamic and inspiring walls and draw their inspiration from nature in a simple, unadorned and Nordic style. I think it’s worth taking a look at…what do you think?

Jeg har aldrig overvejet vægudsmykning i hjemmet, men for et par uger siden fik jeg en mail fra en ny dansk designduo, der laver skulpturer til hjemmet af forskellig materiale. WULFFWINDING designer i bund og grund dine vægge, og udsmykningerne er håndlavede, inspirerede af naturen og den simple nordiske stil. De falder helt sikkert i manges smag, og jeg synes også, at de er smukke og værd at tage et kig på. Hvad synes du?

Relaunch at HAY

result-09

Have you seen the new relaunch from HAY? It’s the Result Chair & Pyramid Collection originally designed by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld for Ahrend.

Having worked together for many years the starting point of the HAY and Ahrend cooperation did not begin until 2014. After a spontaneous visit to Ahrend’s CEO, Eugène Sterken, Rolf Hay mentioned his admiration for the Result Chair and how he felt it would work well with HAY. Not long after this visit HAY acquired a license to produce the Result and Pyramid Collections internationally.

“We are mainly known as a company who collaborates with designers from our own time, but for me the link between these products and what we have been doing, is the approach to industrial design they employed to make them. The idea of working with materials and construction in an intelligent and reliable way, creating as much value for clients at a reasonable price; the Result Chair and Pyramid Table were originally about just this.” says Rolf Hay.

Created to be adaptable, light and strong, the Result Chair (1958) and Pyramid Collection (1959) are two examples of products that utilise the cutout sheet steel construction method of manufacture. The Result Chair was originally designed by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld and the Pyramid Collection by Wim Rietveld in the middle of the 20th century, while they worked at Ahrend. Produced predominately for schools in the 1960s and 1970s throughout the Netherlands, the Result Chair has a particularly strong relationship with Dutch residents as it was a daily part of their lives growing up. Combining functional excellence with aesthetic lightness and adaptability, both designs are exceptionally sparing in their use of materials, are simple to construct and organic in their shape. They remain as relevant and useful today as the first day they came into being.

The Result Chair & Pyramid Collection are designs that have endured, proving the worth of the ideas that were initially put into their creation. For the initial relaunch collection, the designs are available in authentic finishes and configurations. The cutout steel bases are in black or light grey powder coating, with either an oak or smoked oak seat, back or tabletop. The Pyramid Collection features a number of different configurations of the design, including tables, a desk and a bench all of which are visually linked together by the elegant base frame.

Design til børneværelset hos Avaville

tellkiddo-striped-1

Siden jeg blev gravid med Ava har indretning af børneværelset interesseret mig mere og mere. Jeg nyder denne tid, hvor jeg bestemmer, hvordan værelset skal tage sig ud, for hun skal nok have en mening om netop det på et senere tidspunkt. Det må hun også meget gerne, men indtil nu er det altså mor og far, der vælger, hvordan børneværelset skal se ud.  Her er fem fine sager til drenge- og pigeværelset som jeg personligt er ret vild med. Rigtig god weekend!

The definition of “hygge”

IMG_3766

Hygge’ is a Danish import and one of 2016’s hottest buzzwords, having caught on quickly after Helen Russell, journalist and Londoner expat in Denmark, published her best-selling debut novel, The Year of Living Danishly: Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country, in 2015. Though the word has been around in Denmark since the 18th century, it has only recently begun to spark interest worldwide with a slew of books being published on the subject in the last year alone.

This is from the a new article in American Express Essentials where I have written my definition of the word among 7 other so called life style experts (I’m quite flattered).

 

“Hygge is a state of mind rather than a situation or activity. The word describes a feeling within me when I sit around a table laughing and talking to good friends, or when I play with my daughter and we’re both having fun and enjoying every miniscule moment. The good feeling can’t be forced and only appears when you’re doing something enjoyable. Spending a Friday night on the couch with my favourite candy, wine and movie is also hygge.

“Hygge is where the heart is, so if you’re at a place where you feel comfortable, it can appear. My boyfriend and I love to spend time at home, so we’ve created a home with things that makes us feel good and happy. For instance, we’ve painted our walls in dark colours; we’ve decorated it with inviting furniture, wall art and green plants. And when we have guests over, they can feel the atmosphere as well.

“To create hygge, do things you enjoy the most and create an environment that’s conducive to pleasure and togetherness. Candlelight, fine wine and good food on a dark and stormy night can all help.”

Read the whole article here.

Som dansker ved jeg godt, hvad hygge er, men det er der mange udlændinge, der ikke helt forstår – altså hvad betyder ordet, og hvordan skaber man hygge. Jeg er blevet interviewet af American Express Essentials, der ville høre min opskrft på hygge. Læs artiklen her.

 

Finn Juel hotel in Japan

46-sofa

Danish design hotel opens in Nagano – one of Asia’s most popular destinations for skiing. The House of Finn Juhl Hotel Hakuba has just opened on December 1st. The hotel is the first of its kind and will focus on combining inspiring Danish interior, organic local products, and the raw Japanese nature. The small town of Hakuba in Nagano, located in a valley surrounded by the Japanese alps, houses the newly renovated Danish/Japanese design hotel. The hotel is decorated entirely with Finn Juhl furniture and offers a unique design experience of the highest quality in the midst of beautiful surroundings and breathtaking nature.

When entering the hotel you will be met by Finn Juhl’s organic furniture that takes up the space in every room. The well-known designs are beautifully “framed” by the black windows and exposed beams which stand in fine contrast to the light, wooden floors, and white walls. The hotel consists of six double-rooms, a dining hall, several shared lounge areas, and an accompanying bar.

Every detail is well thought trough and each room is decorated differently from the others. Each double room is named after the furniture – The Chieftain room, The Poet room, The Japan room, The Pelican room, The 46-room and The France room.

The founders of Onecollection, Ivan Hansen and Hans Henrik Sørensen, have always focused on good relationships. This hotel will be no different. The lounge invites you to enjoy a drink in good company and relax in Finn Juhl’s iconic furniture, after a day of exploring the magnificent nature.

Dansk designhotel åbner i Nagano – et af Asiens mest populære skiområder. House of Finn Juhl er lige åbnet den 1. december og er det første af sin slags, der byder på eksklusiv dansk indretning, lokale produkter og rå japansk natur. I den lille by Hakuba i Nagano, der er placeret i en dal omkranset af de imponerende Japanske alper, ligger det nyrenoverede dansk/japanske designhotel House of Finn Juhl. Hotellet er totalindrettet med Finn Juhls møbler og danner udgangspunkt for en helt særlig design- og naturoplevelse i Japan.

Når man træder ind af døren på hotellet bliver man mødt af Finn Juhls skulpturelle møbler, der fylder alle rummene. De velkendte designs indrammes skarpt af de sorte sprossede vinduer, frilagte bjælker og gerækter, der står i elegant kontrast til de lyse trægulve og hvide vægge. Hotellet består af flere åbne loungeområder, en spisestue og en bar, hvor Finn Juhls karakteristiske formsprog alle steder får plads til at udfolde sig og komme til sin ret.

På hotellets 6 dobbeltværelser er der kælet for detaljerne, og hvert enkelt værelse er opkaldt efter de møbler, som det er indrettet med – Høvdingeværelset, Poetværelset, Japanværelset, Pelikanværelset, 46-værelset og Franceværelset.

Ivan Hansen og Hans Henrik Sørensen, der i 1990 grundlagde Onecollection, har altid fokuseret på de gode relationer, og hotelkonceptet er ingen undtagelse. Hotellet indbyder til, at man i fællesskab slapper af i Finn Juhls ikoniske møbler efter en dag i naturen.
