I've been mad about the Copenhagen based design studio Frama ever since I first read about them in Rum. So when I saw their latest project which was done in collaboration with the architect Carl Kai Rand what else could I do but to share it with you!
Check out the the herringbone marble brick floor isn't it gorgeous?
I have been in love with graphic and typography posters for a very long time but until now haven't actually been selling any in the shop. All that changed when I got in touch with Tobias one of the creative people behind HOWAREYOUSWEDEN! They brought out "Aa", their first ever poster earlier this month and I immediately knew that it had to go on our shelves ....
I must be honest here.. my first love goes to Playtype! I've been an admirer for a long time and have often been swooning over their posters when reading Danish magazines. It would feel like a betrayal to stock the "Aa" poster without also bringing in Playtype so I'm very proud to say thatSkandivishas now become the first UK stockist of these posters too!
You may not have come across Playtype...but Playtype is an online type foundry started by the Copenhagen-based design agency, e-Types. Quite apart from their range of amazing typeface they sell these fabulous posters with blown up letters in a range of fonts.
The above roomshots are photos from as featured in the book Northern Delights as well as in Danish magazines Rum(top) and Bo Bedre (bottom)
I love beautiful packaging and will buy absolutely anything just to get my hands on a gorgeous jar or box! So Imagine my excitement when I learned that the Finnish design label Marimekko is launching beauty products in collaboration with the amazing Australian brand Aesop! The products are said to be inspired by the Scandinavian bathing culture are packaged in recyclable plastic jars and come in a cool cotton bag made from Marimekko's Vellamo print. Sadly my birthday isn't in a while but no guessing what's going right to the top of my wish list!
The Marimekko-Aesop beauty products will be available from the end of April from www.aesop.com
We all know that the cool Swedes are at the top of their game when it comes to designing furniture! Only this time I'm not thinking Ikea ... Check out some of the amazing Swedish designs that got me swooning lately! The "String" shelving by The architect Nisse Strinning, one of the designers who in the middle of the 20th century started what today referred to as Scandinavian design. String first came on the market 60 years ago, the white version is new though.
The minimalist "Frame" Table designed by Anya Sebton & Eva Lilja Lowenhielm. The filing cabinet is designed by Jessica Signell Knutsson.
Staffan Holm has created this unique shelving unit that concertinas flat for Scandinavian brand One Nordic.
The Mikado cupboard is designed by Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren the girls behind the Swedish design group Front.
I'm mad about posters especially those in monochrome! So of course I was very excited to discover these limited edition Danish prints. Each print has a personal statement from either Hulda, Tine and Allan the bloggers behind the successful Danish blog www.Bungalow5.dk.
I'm with Allan and hope that all bloggers go to heaven too!
