Cosy October

Winter has arrived in the north of Sweden and mountains and woods are covered in snow. In Stockholm Old Town we’re yet in a kind of Indian summer euphoria but wise urbanistas do prepare and update their stock of candles, tea, blankets and Swedish fika. The famous Swedish cinnamon bun was actually celebrated nationwide a few days ago, and we Swedes ate more than 7 million buns! In a few hours…Designers eat buns too, but they also are busy making our everyday beautiful. Here’s some top notch news on the subject of cosiness!

Monica Förster fpr Georg Jensen
Tunes candle holder by Monica Förster for Georg Jensen (2018). Mirror polished stainless steel. As usual Monica Förster add a small, almost invisible twist to her design; I love the dubble function of the candle stick foot/tray. Photo copyright Georg Jensen.

Pia Wallen 2018

The Mega Cross Blanket by Pia Wallén (2018). Organic cotton (from certified farms in Peru), woven in Sweden, size 150 x 250 cm. Here the designer has made a playful exaggeration in scale and abstraction of the cross pattern from the original Crux Blanket which Pia Wallén designed in 1991. Photo copyright Pia Wallén.

Brass delicate

We´ve seen a lot of brass during the last years. Like sculptural every-day objects by Ilse Crawford for Georg Jensen, or Claesson, Koivisto, Rune for Skultuna.
But during the end of 2014 new products appeared, indicating a more delicate look.
