I´m off to Louisiana and the exhibition Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
With the option of either a Carrara or Marquina marble base, the Torch Lamp by Dan Yeffet is a beautiful tabletop lamp and the first piece in a new series of objects he’s developing with the same design story. The Torch has a white opaline or smoky gray glass top and opaline glass diffuser. I´m in love.
For the past 25 years, Susanne Rützou’s name has been synonymous with on-trend fashion design. When Georg Jensen Damask contacted her, she leapt at the chance. Now, in cooperation with Georg Jensen Damask, Rützou has explored new career terrain by creating FEATHER FOREST and LIQUID STRIPE: two new bed linen designs for the Georg Jensen Damask autumn collection.
It´s this kind of a day today – more hours please!
Hello Monday. After an extended weekend in Copenhagen I feel very much alive and kickin´. My vains are pumping inspiration and I´m still sorting the impressions back in my head. T h e most inspiring experience was the evening at The Apartment. That interior shop play in a completely different league! Sitting in their kitchen around Studio Ilse´s beautiful, beautiful new table, eating lovely food (how about the dessert with beetroot and plums!) was a real treat I tell you. Now I´m really regretting not painting my livingroom wall dark grey as I first planned.
This week is full speed ahead having presentations on two of my projects this wednesday and friday. Before going back to work and all the textiles I´m choosing for my customers new flat, I´ll leave you with my interpretation on the exhibition at The Apartment.
Off again for a long weekend with my husband this thursday. Don´t really have the time right now with all the work that is going on but it´s been planned for a long time. It will be most inspiring though; we will stay at a lovely Behomme home in the middle of Copenhagen and I have booked two seats at Atelier Septembers pop-up restaurant at The Apartment where Ilse Crawford has redesigned the interior and has created a homely space where design is experienced rather than exhibited. I´m so looking forward spending a few hours in this atmosphere!
The roadtrip we made last weekend was a real cultural boost. Dalarna is soo pretty and has a very strong cultural due to the longlasting poor era. Among a lot of thing we went to two world famous houses that are left as when the artists lived there. The homes of Anders & Emma Zorn and Carl & Karin Larsson, whose families were close friends, were totaly different and yet very much alike. The Zorn house was dark while the Larsson´s home, Lilla Hyttnäs, was bright and colourful (with a few rooms as an exception). Still, both families had a sharp eye for interior decoration and had homes that are more modern today then at the time! Zorn, who made a fortune early in his career, could afford all the latest inventions and was mixing this with the local crafts that was frown upon during the industrialisation. The Larsson’s were also way ahead of their time, creating ”The Swedish Style”! The home was light, airy, informal, and lived-in with a mix of old and new, including DIY’d textiles; a far cry from the typical dark end heavyVictorian-era home. Carl even put his bed in the middle of the room, being Feng-Shui before the word even hit the west! I could go on forever talking about these two truly inspiring homes but you really have to visit them to appriciate their uniqueness. The trip will certainly be worth while!
