NEW SS15 CATALOGUE

SPRING SUMMER 2015 COLLECTION


Our Spring/Summer 2015 collection is further reflections from our life and we are driven by a true passion for well-crafted design and everyday aesthetics.

This season we proudly introduce more objects for green living. We have concrete pots in beautiful colours and significant plant walls with both a functional and sculptural objective. And for the flowers we love our collect vases, which can be used one by one or together as a modern object.

We are very happy with all the new textiles and want to highlight the canvas cushions with beautiful embroidery details and our collaboration with the talented designer Alyson Fox. Further, our popular handmade kelim rugs with graphic patterns now come in new versions.

For the kitchen we have more delicate items in brass and stoneware. For the bathroom we have timeless accessories in black and dusty blue. For the office we have ring binders with modern print and we believe that the petrol wire basket with oiled oak top will be a season must-have.

Soft quilted and knitted blankets and jersey cushions are great and cute news for the kids room, together with the graphic wooden blocks.

The eyes see our design language as graphic, strong and distinct. The hands feel the different textures of honest materials. All products are brought to life by real hands. We are proud of the story behind and the strong sense of belonging. Embrace the small and sincere moments in everyday life. We do.

ÆBLESKIVER

A little treat - here is a Christmas recipe for unconventional 'Æbleskiver' from one of our favorite chefs Mikkel Marschall:

“Brændende Kærlighed*” as “Æbleskiver**”

70 g of wheat flour
4 g of salt
70 g of cream
50 g of egg yolk
70 g of egg white
35 g of butter
40 g of finely chopped bacon
40 g of finely chopped onion

Fry the onion in the butter until they are transparent. Fry the finely chopped bacon. Whisk together flour, salt, cream and egg yolks.
Add the onion, butter and bacon to the mass. Whip the egg whites stiff and gently fold it into the mass. Pour the mass in to a baking bag.
Bake in an “æbleskive” iron pan in a little clarified butter.

* Brændende kærlighed (English: Burning love) is a traditional Danish dish consisting of mashed potatoes topped with fried bacon and onions.

In the spirit of Christmas, we asked the two Danish up-and-coming designers Elkeland and Freya Dalsjø to give their creative interpretation of this years Christmas table using only our products and their creative minds.The tables were presented to the Danish press at a lovely event last week, and now it's your turn to see the Christmas tables... We hope you like them.

ELKELAND
Elkeland is a visual workshop based in a small cottage in the countryside. Ida, who founded Elkeland, is fond of solitude and contemplation. Therefore, she spends time in an isolated cabin, where she produces prints and handcrafted interior objects. Ida's visual work moves in the abstract area between experiences and performances. The contours of Elkeland is unveiled, as they move through the area, discovering the visual constellations and digital irregularities that appears.
