Friend or foe?
In October 2009 I told about this wonderful line of every day products. Designer Gustav Kristensson makes these under his design company Vardagsbruk. I loved it in 2009. I loved in in 2010. And I still love it in 2011. Specially the tea cup/mug. In white.
And now it has received an award from the magazine Residence for great design. På tiden!

But the surface “lathe stripes” and the little square handles give a subtle touch of high tech. Nice.
