Mormor Porcelain by Normann Copenhagen is a sweet and nostalgic homeware series for the modern kitchen with clear references to the traditional Scandinavian style. Structures and patterns from well-known kitchen items such as table-cloths and tea towels creates the visual expression. It was designed by Danish Gry Fager who says:
”I really like combining different things. What motivates me is developing good ideas for everyday things which people enjoy using and having in their homes. To me the aesthetic is a matter of course and its function is a must. With Mormor, the kitchen is the place where everything starts, the central nervous system of the house where people all gather. I have been inspired by the atmosphere and the character of the kitchen, particularly older kitchens from my grandmother’s time and I have transferred the kitchen clichés into a modern context.”
Have you seen the beautiful new shelving system by Danish Skagerak? It’s called Vivlio and is designed in collaboration with Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm & Margarethe Odgaard.
“Vivlio Shelf System is a flexible shelving unit that both showcases and conceals. The shelves come in three different heights and colours and may either present their open front to the room or face away to conceal their content. Vivlio’s colour options for shelves and frame create a wide range of options in a celebration of the flexibility and aesthetic of simplicity.” – Skagerak
Danish brand Kähler has come out with a new series called Unico. It is designed by Anders Arhøj, who is famous for creating these fun little ceramic ghosts amongst many other things, and is a series of completely unique ceramic design products with a beautiful colour range. The pieces are characterised by a special glazing which makes every ceramics different, and the collection consists of a bowl, a dish, a flowerpot & three vases in different sizes.
My favourite item from the range is the round yellow Orcher vase (surprise surprise). It is so pretty both with or without something inside, a nice way to add a splash of colour to your home.
