Eye candy…

Normann_Copenhagen_Daily_Fiction_23Friday I took Ava on a trip to Normann Copenhagen to celebrate the launch of a new collection of designs for day-to-day use such as notebooks, gift wrapping, stickers, pencil sharpeners, scissors and much more. There are actually more than 200 small designs to choose from and it all goes under the name Daily Fiction. Normann has teamed up with the Copenhagen-based design agency Femmes Régionales to create a conceptual universe where all aspects down to the last detail are thought through. Maybe I don’t need another notebook or pencil but I really like the cool paterns, colors and style this serie brings into the world of design.

I fredags tog jeg Ava med en tur ind til Normann Copenhagen for at være med til fejringen af en ny serie af små hverdagsdesigns fra notesbøger til gavepapir og blyanter. Der er faktisk mere end 200 designs at vælge imellem i Daily Fiction serien, der er resultatet af et samarbejde mellem Normann og designbureauet Femmes Régionales. Daily Fiction er lige så meget et gennemtænkt designkoncept som det er en decideret kollektion, og det bliver da også kun udvalgte butikker, der kommer til at forhandle den. Måske har jeg ikke lige brug for endnu en papirklips eller en notesbog, men jeg er ret vild med mønstrene, farverne og stilen på Daily Fiction, og så er der jo ikke nogen vej tilbage. Normann kalder det en slikbutik for voksne, og det er jeg tilbøjelig til at give dem ret i.

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.

I have a handfull of favoerites when it comes to cloth racks. When Martin moved in he brought his Hay Loop Stand Wardrobe that does the job perfectly all right with its simple expression that dosen’t make too much noise in the our bedroom. However we might replace it if we move so here are some I definitely would consider. Have a great weekend!

——————–

Jeg har en håndfuld favoritter, når det handler om tøjstativer. Da Martin flyttede ind hos mig tog han sin Hay Loop Stand Wardrobe med sig, hvilket har fungeret godt i soveværelset med det simple udtryk, der på ingen måde råber op og forstyrrer i rummet. Vi overvejer dog, om vi burde skifte det ud, når/hvis vi flytter. Måske bliver det et af de her…ha’ en fantastisk weekend!

My home office means everything to me and as you know i’m a sucker for nice containers and pots you can use for storage. I also like when things are multifunctional like Holmegaard’s beautiful blown glass containers designed by Maria Berntsen. The series, Design With Light, has a cool expression where glas and leather are combined and the containers, that comes in three different sizes, are perfect for my pens, scissors and other stuff or they can be used as vases for flowers, for small candles or just as decoration.

Hall way up

Our house is from the 1930’s and there are constantly projects that can be done. At the moment we are redecorating the bathroom and next will be the kitchen. In the meantime we have done some simple things to upgrade our hall way with new coat-  and shoe racks and a little bit of fresh paint!

I have looked forever for a nice shoe rack. Of course you can buy one at Ikea but to be honest I think they are too plain. Finally I found one that is stylish with a little twist of something raw and industrial. Sko shoe rack is designed by Simon Legald for Normann Copenhagen. It has a frame in ash with white or grey shelves. For jackets and coats we wanted something that was decorative as much as it was functional and found Gubi’s Matégot Coatrack. It is so nice that I’m actually having a hard time covering it with jackets! Other than that we have just painted the walls and stair case in its original colors and brought a little bit of Spring and Summertime inside with a lemon tree.

Vi bor i et gammelt hus fra 1930’erne, og der er konstant boligprojekter at kaste sig over. Lige nu er vi i gang med badeværelset, og næste store projekt er et nyt køkken. I mellemtiden har vi opgraderet vores opgang med nogle simple forandringer ved hjælp af ny knagerække, skoreol og en masse frisk maling.

Jeg har virkelig ledt længe efter en flot skoreol. Ikea har fine bud, men for at være ærlig synes jeg, de er for kedelige. Jeg er faldet over Sko shoe rack som Simon Legald  har designet for Normann Copenhagen. Den er enkel, men stadig udtryksfuld med et tvist af noget råt og industrielt. Til overtøjet ville vi gerne have noget, der var lige så dekorativt som det var funktionelt, og her var Gubi’s Matégot Coatrack et ret godt bud. Den er faktisk så fin, at jeg næsten ikke har lyst til at dække den til med tøj! Derudover har vi malet på livet løs og har bragt lidt forår og sommer indenfor i form af et lemontræ.

New dots in ash

Creativ Boards

Dots_Ash

My love for wood is no exception when it comes to Muuto‘s Dots that now comes in natural ash wood. The hooks, designed by Lars Tornøe, were launched some years ago in different colors but I like it all natural. The feel of them is great with the round edges and they look nice both alone or in a pattern with different sizes.

Min forkærlighed for træ er ingen undtagelse, når det kommer til Muutos Dots knager, der nu kommer i naturlig ask. Knagerne, der er designet af Lars Tornøe, blev lanceret for nogle år siden i forskellige farver, men jeg er virkelig en fan af den helt naturlige version, hvor du kan se træet årer og kan mærke strukturen, når du glider fingrene henover de runde kanter. Dots ser flot ud alene, men især sammen i et mønster af flere størrelser.
