Unique jewelry made of goldplated copper

Malin Henningsson is yet another talented designer. Henningsson’s sculptural, minimalistic albeit maximalistic jewelry is unique in its design and in choice of material. Jewelry portrayed here is made of goldplated copper and pink quartz.

Each piece of jewelry is handmade by Henningsson in her Stocholm studio, thus after placing your order you’d have to wait a week or two while your unique piece of jewelry is being made.

Not that I’d mind.

Denmark in Japan

 

I have to admit I have a thing for Japan. I love the people, the food, the courteousness, the order, the attention to detail…the list can go on forever.

On a recent trip I was roaming around just looking at whatever caught my eye, and I enjoyed looking at the products at this shop in Kyoto… and then it occured to me that it was Danish design (!). Not that I should have been so surprised, I really enjoy Danish design as well. A lot. But I just didn’t expect to stumble across it just then and there.

By the way, if you are heading towards Kyoto, try to stay some nights in a ryokan, that is an experience that you shouldn’t miss, but if you want to save some $ you can stay really comfortably at a hostel. I stayed at Piece Hostel Kyoto. Awsome place! I totally loved it. It is a friendly, no fuss, squeaky clean place with oh-so-comfy-beds. With friendly and super helpful staff as the cherry on top.

Royal Copenhagen

Blue

 

Well, what can I say, but Royal Copenhagen keeps doing it. Since 1775 they have been adorning the world’s many homes, and tablelscapes have been so much prettier with their help for hundreds of years.

Which color do your prefer when it comes to this, their new line ‘Fluted’?

Hayonish sofa

Hayon1

Jaime Hayon designed this sofa, named Vico (after the designers son), for Cassina. After researching the heritage of Italian design and by studying Cassina’s archives from 1950’s and 60’s he designed this retro:ish sofa in a contemporary context.

The result is a sofa (and an armchair) with fluid lines that will grace any home.

Another Meltdown

If I ever am to have a meltdown, this is the one I want, need, am asking for…

Johan Lindsten has created new versions of his Meltdown lamp. I loved the original one. I love these. Lindsten is a talented designer whom I really admire. Check out more of his work here
