THE SIMPLISTIC ART OF COFFEE

thatscandinavianfeeling_puldefranck_coffee print

This beautiful simplistic poster caught my eye. Its by Swedish art director & graphic designer Tommy Olsson who goes by the artist name Puldefranck. Geometric shapes is a recurring element of his aestethics. The expression is sometimes clean & modern, and sometimes more playful but always with a nordic vibe.

The Orb Cafe is available in two different sizes and can be purchased from his website. The perfect poster for any coffee lover!

BLOSSA FRISK // FRESH FLARE

FRISK_etikett4_1330_886_90_s_c1

This beautiful bottle of Blossa Frisk containing Swedish gløgg, a traditional Christmas beverage similar to mulled wine, was designed by the Scandinavian Design Group. The elegant use of Scandinavian patterns paired with the gold and green captures the freshness of the product and the nordic feel perfectly.

“We designed a bottle that captivates the light and brightness of summer, communicating the fresh taste of elderflower and citrus – without loosing the cosy feeling of Christmas by adding a traditional pattern and using the original Blossa bottle. The result is a new Blossa, in a recongnizable costume, with a feel of Christmas and summer at the same time.” – Scandinavian Design Group

Since 2003 Blossa has launched an annual limited edition bottle with a new flavour and look, find all of the designs here as well as the new 2015 bottle!

I’m not a massive fan of gløgg in general, but this Christmas I might get one of these Blossa Frisk bottles to try. The fresh elderflower & citrus flavour sounds very tempting.. Plus the bottle would make a great centrepiece on the Christmas table.

SLING ARMCHAIR

I’m in love with this modern Scandinavian armchair designed by Swedish NOTE Design Studio for Fogia. The contrast between the hard metal frames and the upholstery in soft textile gives it a beautiful and gentle look.
