Bricks…

Bricks by DESIGNA_Lusso_Mørk blå køkken

Well, our all white kitchen is okay, but oh boy I would love to have a brand new one like the new series Bricks from Designa. It is designed by Malene Ejsing Nørgård, who is a furniture designer, but has been working for Designa for some years now. I like the way the design makes it possible to place the bricks differently. In that way it becomes visually beautiful.

Jeg er okay tilfreds med vores hvidt i hvidt køkken, men hvor ville jeg dog gerne have et helt nyt af slagsen som f.eks. den nye serie Bricks fra Designa . Serien er lige lanceret, og er designet af Malene Ejsing Nørgård, der er uddannet møbeldesigner, men har arbejdet for Designa i nogle år. Jeg er vild med muligheden for at sammensætte forskellige brikker eller “mursten” efter eget valg, så du får præcis det mønster og funktionalitet, der passer dig. Så er det ikke bare lige skuffe og skabe, men mere visuelt lækkert.

Classic…

2016_Normann_Catalogue_Acc_35

Do you remember the Krenit bowl? I have quite a few of them in my home and love the iconic shape. What I didn’t know was that Herbert Krenchel in 1966 designed a natural extension of Krenit range of bowls – a jug. Normann Copenhagen has launched the jug in 2 sizes and 8 colors so there is a chance you will find a favorite. Have a great weeekend!

Kan du huske Krenit skålen? Jeg har i hvert fald et par stykker derhjemme, og jeg er vild med det ikoniske og tidsløse design. Hvad jeg ikke vidste var, at Herbert Krenchel i 1966 designede en naturlig forlængelse af den populære salatskål, nemlig en kande som Normann Copenhagen nu har sat i produktion. Den kommer i to størrelser og otte farver, så mon ikke du kan finde en favorit. Ha’ en dejlig weekend!

”I’ve always been engrossed, almost in love with objects and materials of a high quality. As a counterpoint to the soft and curved forms of the time, I gave the Krenit jug a razor sharp feel, which is expressed by its refined lines,” Herbert Krenchel

Living space

Brinklercph 3

Living space is the perfect word for our dinning-, kitchen and tv room which are three rooms all brought together. The open kitchen and dinning room space is especially nice when we have company because you can prepare dinner while still being a part of the conversion. The renovation of these three rooms hasn’t been extensive. We removed an old built-in book case and had the wall rebuilt. Otherwise we just painted the walls and sanded the 60 year old oak floors. Because the room where we wanted to place our sofa had a pinewood floor, we decided to place a wall to wall carpet to reduce the diference between the very beautiful oak hiring bone floors and the pinewood.

Now we just need a little bit more on the walls, but I’m already pretty happy about the result. Here are some pics to give you an idea of what I’m talking about…

——————–

Ordet Living space er ret så passede for vores nye spise-, køkken og tv-stue, der er tre rum, der i fin harmoni hænger sammen. Det åbne køkken i forlængelse af spisestuen er særligt rart at have, når vi har gæster, fordi du kan lave mad uden at være afskåret fra selskabet. Renoveringen af de tre rum har ikke været så omfattende, for køkkenet var der allerede, og standen var generel god overalt. I tv-stuen fjernede vi en indbygget bogreol, hvorefter vi fik væggen genopbygget.  Derudover har vi malet væggene og fået slebet og olieret de 60 år gamle egetræsgulve. I tv-stuen var der fyrtræsgulv, hvilket stod i ret stor kontrast til den flotte sildebensparket i de resterende rum. Derfor besluttede vi at få lagt et sort gulvtæppe for at udligne forskellen.

Nu mangler vi bare lidt mere på de hvide vægge, men jeg føler mig allerede godt tilpas og er tilfreds med resultatet so far. Her er lidt billeder, så du kan få en idé om, hvad jeg taler om

5 from Hay

Paper Porcelain

It’s time for fall news 2014 and there are a lot of great news about the hit the stores. I have picked 5 favorites from Hay’s accessory line. I especially like the service in porcelain (above) that looks like coarse paper. The collection is made by Scholten & Baijing who created the service for an exhibition. Now, the paper model has been realized in a specially developed porcelain material that lets the tiny iron specks in the porcelain show, in imitation of the matt and tactile quality of recycled paper. The series includes an espresso cup, a coffee cup, a mug and a tea plate.

Colour Tray

Another product from Scholten & Baijings is Colour Tray that combines the hardness of bamboo and the natural ornamentation of the grain with an iconic fluorescent touch on edges and surfaces. The Tray comes in three versions.

Cord Hanger Fade yellow

Cord hanger has hardwearing and colourful polyester string wrapped around a metal hanger to add a little friction to a practical everyday item. I like the soft colors.

Lup Wall

Lup Wall is the classic candle holder transformed into a physical line drawing in black painted metal or copper wire. It has a playful narrative character and blend into the existing family of Lup candle holders.

Analog

I love clocks! This Analog clock is inspired by the classic barometer. Designer Shane Schneck has made watch that are three-dimensional rather than flat and is a tribute to an old school analog watch as a contrast to our digital world.

Yesterday on my day off from work I took a trip to Bella Center where this years DesignTrade took place. It is the largest design and furniture trade fair in Copenhagen, hosting more than 380 leading exhibitors from Denmark and abroad. I took my camera (and my new Ona bag) and spent most of the day talking to creative and dedicated designers and retailers and seeing amazing new designs. So – of course I want to share this experience with you. Take a look at my favorite products from the fair.

Basic & Honest

Dark grey wool carpet and bed linen

One new interior brand you should keep an eye on is Danish Semi Basic by Mathilde Thomsen and Vivian Hensrik – two positive, talented and dedicated women who in 2013 decided to create a new design concept based on high quality designs for your home and fair prices. Semi Basic develops, import and sell all products via the webshop so all expensive intermediary and retailers are cut out. Who doesn’t want quality products without paying a fortune? Altso I like the style. Simple lines, little color details and most of all a nice feel to it.

——————–

Et nyt, lækkert interiør brand, du bør holde øje med, er Semi Basic, som de to talentfulde og topdedikerede kvinder, Mathilde Thomsen og Vivian Hensrik, står bag. Semi Basic blev etableret i 2013 med en mission om at producere kvalitetsprodukter til fair priser. Pigerne har derfor været verden rundt for at finde de bedste producenter til kollektionen, der består af sengetøj, plaider, gulvtæppe, håndklæder, viskestykker og karklude. Altså basis produkter til hjemmet, men med et lækkert og stilfuldt udtryk, der lige giver det der ekstra til badeværelset, soveværelset eller køkkenet. Udgifter til forhandlere er skåret væk, og produkterne sælges kun via webshoppen. Jeg er vild med den nuværende kollektion, som du kan tjekke ud her og er spændt på at se, hvad der bliver det næste.
