    The future of light is LED! And how can LED, design and office interior go hand in hand? Meet Danish designer Henning Solfeldt of PLH Design in Copenhagen. In this video he explains how his design collaboration with Philips Lighting resulted in LumiStone - a new suspended, office compliant LED design luminaire from Philips. #allgoodthings #danish spotted by missdesignsays.

    Came across this Invisible Garden House - by Danish Simon Hjermind Jensen. It’s a pilot project built North of Copenhagen in a private garden, where it extends the summer - just like every oldfashioned greenhouse would do (or does, I have one in my garden, and we love it!). The three connected domes functions as a garden house/green house - the middle dome with wooden floor. How would you want it? The size and shape of the domes can be designed individually for both private and public spaces. Personally, I do hope, that Simon Hjermind Jensen’s pilot project will develope and grow strong. Could easily imagine these domes as public spaces, for urban gardening, in parks, on flat roof terraces etc. Danish design at it’s best.

    #paulprivat reception today to celebrate the new cookbook from Paul Cunningham.

    Paul Cunningham Privat. Or #paulprivat as the hashtag at the reception today said. The latest cookbook from the British star-chef Paul Cunningham, considered to be more than half-Danish because of his more than 15 years in Denmark. Paul’s latest book was officially launched today at the studio of talented Line Thit Klein, photographer, at Frederiksberg in Copenhagen. 

    Invited were friends of Paul, Paulfood (Paul’s brand) and Henne Kirkeby Kro on social media. E.g. via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. A great group of “not-so-many-old-journalists” - and we all heard Paul honored as always - blessed with this ‘new’ life at Henne Kirkeby Kro on Denmark’s West coast. “I don’t miss my life in Copenhagen, sorry to say!”, he said - and that’s quite okay, Paul! We don’t want you back as you were when times in Tivoli were busy - too busy. We want you, as you are now - happy, delighted, privileged, humble and most of all: just Paul Cunningham.

    If you want to see the great shots from today, search Instagram for #paulprivat - you might end up finding new instagrammers to follow! The book is on sale online - see Paulfood.com.

    How can design help homeless people? In Denmark the t-shirt “Tee is for charity” supports homeless people with 80 DKK from every sale. Made from Fairtrade and Organic cotton tee with print designed by one of my favorites, Phucisme, the t-shirt is a part of Moth’s “Tee is for charity” collection. Moth sells limited edition mens and womens wear, bags, jewelry and art.  When you purchase the tee, 80 DKK goes directly to support the Danish charity 'PROJEKT HJEMLØS’, which is a non-profit organisation based alone on voluntary work from nurses, doctors, chefs etc.

    The new Riccos Kaffebar at Tåsinge Plads, Ourøgade, Østerbro in Copenhagen opened today. The local area is developing as the first “Climate District” in Copenhagen with green design, urban exploration, focus on sustainability etc.

    I know that the Danish designer Tine Mouritsen (check her studio in nr. 38) welcomes Riccos with great expectations. I visited the area yesterday, when Riccos was ‘getting ready’ - now Tine just came back from her first coffee at Lars’s new place and as you can see, it’s worth a visit.

    I have always been a fan of the Danish ceramist and designer Ole Jensen - actually I once stumbled into him in Milan, without knowing who he was (until he introduced himself to me). I own a few of his designs - known for the characteristic shapes e.g. the Washing-Up Bowl for Normann Copenhagen. 

    This time he has designed a new iconic collection, “Ole Jensen for Room Copenhagen" and to me it’s very much an Ole Jensen-design. It could be from the 70s. 80s. 90s. It could be from 2013, which it is. it is both classic and contemporary. Both out of fashion - and fashion. What do you think?

    Danish architecture in Kiruna, Sweden. The New City Hall in Kiruna by Henning Larsen Architects will open in 2016. “The Crystal” is inspired by the culture, the history and the character of the city. Kiruna’s existing city hall is a unique piece of architecture from 1958, which was designed by Artur von Schmalensee. The new city hall refers to the old one in several ways. The bell tower from the listed city hall will be re-used in the square, just as materials and building parts will be re-used to the extent possible.

    Wanna come for tea? The new Tea Strainer designed by the German design-duo Böttcher+Henssler for Normann Copenhagen, Denmark, is actually the best idea I have seen in a long time - from the world of tea. I saw it at the impressive Normann Copenhagen showroom and store at Trianglen in Copenhagen (a fantastic location, by the way) and was impressed by the simplicity and functionality. It serves both as a tea strainer and a small bowl that collects the excess water and prevents spills - and is suitable for both cups, mugs and teapots. Now, that’s design that makes good sense. Now I finally know where to put the strainer after having brewed my cup of tea. 

    The Normann Copenhagen Tea Strainer comes in six different colors: Grey, black, blue, mint, burgundy and red. Which one is your favorite?

    The Tongue Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1955 is now relaunched in a modern up-to-date 2013-version with a little help and love from his grandson Tobias Jacobsen and HOWE. I was lucky to meet Tobias and join the #TourDeArneJacobsen with HOWE in and around Copenhagen today and saw not only the new chair but also some of the iconic buildings and designs by Arne Jacobsen. It was a 4 hour drive in an old SAS bus taking us from SAS Royal Hotel to Munkegård Skolen in Gentofte, to Bellevue Theatre and the classic gas station on Strandvejen. A great way to follow the footsteps of a great designer and architect - and a great way to ‘walk the talk’ from HOWE. 

    I am excited to see how the chair will find new markets. It’s launched now in Denmark, but I believe in interest from markets outside Europe. What would the US say to this new classic - or Australia? Let me know what you think?

    The Tongue Chair (known as AJ 3102) designed by Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was Arne Jacobsen’s second completed chair design right after the Ant Chair in 1955. The chair was designed for Munkegård Skolen in Gentofte and is now restored by HOWE and Tobias Jacobsen, the grandson of the great Danish designer and architect. Later the chair was placed in the rooms at the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.

    Now The Tongue Chair is back - still with the classic design by Arne Jacobsen, but with improved strength thanks to the engineering expertise and modern construction techniques applied by HOWE - who normally does chairs and furniture for business segment.
