MINIMAL LOVE FROM STELTON

If you need a new water pitcher, kettle, water bottle or other homeware items look no further. Stelton, the Danish design company with strong roots in the Scandinavian design tradition, has a great selection of minimalist products with a retro vibe. I am especially loving the new pastel colours seen in their Spring collection.

Stelton is a brand with long traditions in Scandinavian homes and has managed to capture the hearts of design lovers since the late 1960s. Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Cylinda-line in stainless steel for Stelton launched in 1967 was based on his philosophy that ”good design should be available for everyone”. Today five decades later, the series has become the essence of Stelton’s design DNA. The Cylinda-line features selected items coated in beautifully coloured enamel to celebrate its 50th Anniversary with an array of soft colours; ocean blue, dusty teal, powder and smokey blue.

The Emma pitcher reminds us of the classic Danish steel pitchers of the 1950s, reinterpreted for today in a sculptural and classic design. This beautiful pitcher is an addition to the Emma collection. How pretty is the Emma electric cordless kettle with the same retro style?

The Circle water bottle is a handy reusable bottle in glass, with a pure and unique design. With a unique open/close function in form of a beautiful circular stopper, the bottle is easy to hold and to drink from.

The To Go Click cup has a ”smart click” function that lets you open and close it easily, and you can drink from the full 360 degrees of the cup as if there were no lid. A great way to enjoy hot or cold drinks without spills when you’re on the move or while traveling.

This year we can find the iconic EM77 vacuum jug designed by Erik Magnussen in 1977 in new bright colours sand, dusty green and light grey. The colours are inspired by Scandinavian evenings by the sea and sandy beaches with gentle summer breezes.

NEW DANISH DESIGN // AMANDA LILHOLT

My absolute favorite discovery from Milan Design Week was this little space in the Lambrate district, located right next to the Norwegian exhibition ‘Everything is Connected’ (look out for a blogpost on that one soon!).

Studio Amanda Lilholt is a furniture and interior design studio based in Copenhagen with the slogan “We don’t believe in perfect. We believe in taking things a bit further.” The first thing I noticed and loved was her creative concrete flower vases. They come in 4 different colours; pink, dark blue, grey & white and two sizes. Others items to look out for are the gorgeous new daybed ‘HER’ and the cool liquor cabinet with a rotatable circle.

I am sure we will see more from this great new designer, so mark the name!

What is your advent tradition? In Scandinavia we have a lovely tradition of lighting one candle each of the four Sundays of advent. This Kubus candle holder from by Lassen is just as nice to use all year long, but fits perfectly for advent time too! I especially love the idea of giving it an extra festive vibe by wrapping fresh rosemary around it.
