Danish design hot off the press: The original Grand Prix Chair designed by the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1957 is back. Originally know as Model 3130, the chair got it’s Grand Prix name after winning the Grand Prix at the XI. Triennale di Milano in … well, 1957! It was designed with chromed steel tubes (stackable). 

Now it’s back in business thanks to new production methods. New detail is the wooden legs and new colors. The new wooden edition is non-stackable. Produced by Fritz Hansen.

Danish design: Recycled leather from LIND DNA - used for mats, bags and interior. LIND DNA was established in the spring of 2012 by after the founders (a father and two daughters) had experimented with the potential of optimized recycled leather. They found that it was both heat resistant as well as water and dirt repellant. All materials used in their products are 100% natural, and recycling is prioritized wherever it’s possible. On top of that, all of LIND DNA’s products are handmade locally by experienced, Danish craftsmen. This not only ensures that they live up to the legacy of Danish design and craftsmanship in terms of quality; the elimination of freight also reduces the strain on the environment dramatically.

Hot off the press - I am proud to be the first design blog to announce the latest design from Nordic Tales. The talented upcoming Danish brand with strong Scandinavian design traditions!

Meet Collar Lamp, Flip and Snowflakes. A lamp, a bookshelf and a bowl.

Collar Lamp: Designed by Jordi López Aquiló (Spain). Unites Scandinavian design with Spanish elegance. The lampshade made from powder painted steel is mounted on an oak wood base, that rotates 180 degrees allowing the light to be directed in any desired angle. Collar Lamp is produced as an up-light and as a wall lamp. Materials: Oak wood and steel. LED-bulp.

Flip. Bookshelf designed by Jonas Hoejgaard. Based on the idea of using the binding of books in the overall impression of the shelf as opposed to covering them. Flip is composed of two identical parts. Each part is pro- duced in either powder coated metal or walnut and is sold separately. Materials: Walnut and steel.

Finally, Snowflake! Designed by Jonas Hoejgaard. A decorative bowl inspired by the photographer, James Balog’s work which pictures the climate changes of the Earth. Snowflake is made from two types of glass, the inner side of the bowl is produced in opal glass while the outer is in frosted. When light hits the bowl the geometric shapes are reflected through the two layers of glass. In that way Snowflake turns into a luminaire which character changes according to its surroundings.

If you haven’t heard of Danish Heidi Zilmer from Zilmers.com, then let me introduce you to a world of luxury wallpapers. Heidi’s passion for “ancient craftsmanship revitalised” is rooted in Nordic esthetics through the ages from the Scandinavian Arts and Craft movement to the simplicity of modern Danish Design era. She designs and manufactures wallpapers by hand - from start to finish, which means that your wallpaper can be customised to match every taste, space and interest. 

Zilmer’s work springs from a deep desire to keep the finest traditions of craftsmanship alive - and to use age-old techniques to create objects of beauty with contemporary relevance.

This collection “Nordic Antigues” is a collection of contemporary wallpapers with roots in traditional Scandinavian knitting patterns. The patterns are designed as antique tiles.

Zilmer was recently in Japan to promote the luxury wallpapers and besides doing castles, theaters and extraordinary scenes, she offers her handpainted luxury wallpapers to private homes. 

If you are going to Design Trade 2013 in Copenhagen, 28-30 August, do visit Zilmers stand: C1-016C.

This tiny shop in Gamla Stan, Stockholm, E. Torndahl, sells great Scandinavian design, e.g. from Danish Muuto, Rie Elise Larsen ApS, ARCHITECTMADE etc. Amongst many (in my eyes) horrible tourist shops, this is a cozy and nice little must see.
