Design | Saana ja Olli

In my search for new carpet inspiration I found the Koko iäksi (For the Whole Life) designed by Saana ja Olli for Mum’s. Saana ja Olli is a designer couple and company from Turku, Finland. In their work they value rectitude, timelessness and a human touch.

The idea was to design a carpet that would accompany it’s owner in all changing situations and environments in life. The production takes place at the Bhadohi area of India and is simply fair: the weaver receives 50% of the wholesale price of every carpet and other 50% goes to running the weaving co-op.

I was already a fan of their print pillow Maailman, inspired by old myths and the rich Finnish wall rug tradition. This woolen black and white carpet would fit in beautifully.

Mood | Fall

Fall means dressing in layers

Leaves in various shades of brown and orange

Cosiness inside

And one of my favorite vegetables: pumpkins

On Pratos e Travessas I found a recipe for spelt pumpkins muffins

Beautifully photographed

It looks delicious!

My Home | Hagedornhagen S13

The artprints of Hagedornhagen need no introduction. Photographers Mads Hagedorn-Olsen and Anders Morell from Copenhagen have among others a passion for tiny winged creatures. I love how they captured the colors and details of the butterfly in print S13. Part of a range of insect posters, the collection offers several delicate butterflies, a glowing green beetle and a particularly leaf insect. The insects are depicted clearly and brighten up on a white background. 

A hagedornhagen artprint is a product that has been carefully prepared and carried through down to the minutest details.

Architecture | Ridge Road Residence

Especially the exterior of this residence by Studio Four caught my attention. The minimal clean lines and varying levels. The matte black wood fits very well with the rough environment. I also like the idea behind the art work in de living room. The perspex strips increase the reflections of the daylight and surrounding landscape, it creates a play of light and shadow in the room.

Varying levels of interaction and connection with the landscape, both real and perceived, drive all aspects of the design, from the channelled views of the horizon upon entry, through to the double height picture window that captures the full proportion of the tea tree, and the direct and intimate connection provided by the low level decks.

Saturday Love | Diva Sound

 We know that the Danes are good at functional designs and beautiful details. Not only when it comes to interior and home accessories. That proves Danish audio company Libratone. I have a thing with electronic equipment and gadgets. But I dislike large square speakers, ugly cords and plugs. The DIVA is a slim and organic design and relatively small. It’s a combined TV soundbar and wireless music system. Soft and curved, it would fitt my Scandinavian interior very well..

Ejoy your weekend!

Giveaway | Skandinavisk Ceramics

Skandinavisk is best known for their beautiful candles. But they also have a lovely ceramics collection. It’s designed by ceramicist Jeanette Hiiri., who designs and creates from her atelier located in Copenhagen.

Our handmade porcelain collection celebrates fika, a social institution in Sweden. An essential daily ritual with friends, family or colleagues. Fika originated in the 19th century as a play on the old Swedish word for coffee - kaffi - and is a small moment of calm and time together. Most often enjoyed with something sweet and tasty.

 

Ska vi fika

Our fika moment begins with a cup available in 6 playful designs. Light to hold and gently rounded to match the palms of both hands. Extra large to protect the warming coffee, tea, or soup inside. The ‘kopp’ is complemented by a side plate designed to accommodate those small indulgences for that perfect everyday moment.

I’m happy to announce that I can give away two fika sets, each set consisting of a plate and a cup!

 

How to win?

What’s your favorite fika moment? Leave a comment in the section below. It would be nice if you follow Skandinavisk and beeldSTEIL on Facebook. And be sure we can easily reach you through your email. Within 10 days we will choose two winners.

Interior | &Tradition

Hope to visit the &Tradition brand new showroom The Village in Copenhagen some day. It looks very promising! As well as the new releases for 2014. I like the minimal styling and nearly gloomy way of shooting. The way in which the photographer played with the light and shadows. Very beautiful ..
