Christmas with Georg Jensen Collectibles

December 16, 2019


This year I started my collection of Georg Jensen’s Christmas Collectibles , a limited edition series of festive decorations created by a different designer every year for Georg Jensen. For more than 100 years Georg Jensen has pioneered the field of Scandinavian design by constantly delivering products and experiences that elevate the everyday. This season the collectibles are based on the classic Christmas symbols of love, togetherness and tradition: hearts, stars and trees all plated in gold and palladium.

“Jul” is the Scandinavian word for Christmas, and up here it is one of the most popular words in the vocabulary. Because in Scandinavia “jul” is not just a single evening of gift exchanges, it is a whole season of having a good time. It is that part of the year when you go out of your way to make others feel happy and loved.

The 2019 Christmas Collectible collection is designed by longtime Georg jensen collaborator Sanne Lund Traberg using the graphic lines and shapes often seen in both cubist and art deco pieces. Her work is both contemporary and timeless.

Christmas is a time for showing love to your family and friends so what better symbol to use on a tree decoration than a heart? This gold-plated Christmas ornament features a beautifully crafted heart suspended inside a delicate frame which features graphic patterns inspired by Cubism and Art Deco, the designer says.

I have been in Norway for a couple of years now and every year there has been an excuse to not decorate for Christmas. Moving houses, spending christmas abroad, and other reasons. This year I made a promise to myself to not only celebrate Christmas, but to start with a new tradition as well. Being very much on the minimal side I do not want to overwhelm my house with baubles and decorations, but with ornaments that will mean something to me for years to come as well. Adding my Georg Jensen collectibles collection every year seems like the best way to also look forwards to the next festive season as well! Win win!

Old favorites, new colors.

December 5, 2019


Old favorites in new colors for Stelton and their award-winning and timeless EM77 thermos with the unique, patented rocker stopper was created by Erik Magnussen in 1977 which is one of Stelton’s best-selling designs of all time and for a good reason. A classic can almost never be out of style and it will fit in any kitchen or environment. I shot a small editorial for the new colors and the beautiful light grey popped out to me.  In the same line now can also be found an electrical kettle ( as shown above) , a tea maker and a french press ( as shown below), again in the same light grey color. In the same simple idiom as EM77 vacuum jug, the EM77 press coffee maker holds eight cups, and its double walls keeps the coffee warm for longer. Perfect for gifts this season, I have often times find it hard to choose a color. I already have 3 different colors throughout the years in my cabinets and I usually change them around according to the season or the occasion. In all honesty I was mostly excited for their electrical kettle, the design is simply fantastic. The electrical part goes completely under so when it is plugged in and in use you only see a small cord and nothing else (observe photo below). I have trouble thinking of an electric kettle I would prefer having , and that I can say wholeheartedly.

Favorite beach towels from Greece : Sea You Soon

July 19, 2018


The last time I was in Greece a couple of weeks ago, I discovered a Greek brand with the most beautiful beach towels. Sea you Soon, founded by two Greek brothers Grigoris and Konstantinos , has a lot to be proud about, the collections are filled with elegant lines that give out minimalistic vibes and a sense of nomadic touch, but equally importantly the quality is outstanding. I was not surprised to find out that each towel is going through extensive quality control, although I did not expect that every single towel is looked thoroughly for any imperfections, something I find quite impressive. The guys are very proud of their product line and they have every reason to be. I am also proud being Greek myself to see such beautifully locally made products going out into the world. They look even better after a few washes, yet another quality tick on my box. I use them as beach towels, lay them down on grass to sit, drape them around me when cold, after shower, as tablecloths for outside (they are so soft they drape so nicely over the table), sarong around the body after having a swim, blankets, the list can go on. I know you can find them in various resellers al around Scandinavia, if you want to support a company that makes amazing towels, I highly recommend them! They come in so many beautiful colors as well, if you visit the online store make sure to check some of them out. The one you can see in this post that I used to sit on the pier, is the Capraia towel, in Black color. They ship in any country by the way, if you need great quality, truly beautiful photogenic towels ( just a tip for all content creators out there 😉 these products are my tip for the summer. Take them with you to that vacation, use them at home, they are lightweight and will fit even in the smallest beach bag!

Abate

June 16, 2018


Amidst the summer days we are having in Oslo, there are some local news that should help take some of the heat off..literally! Abate is relatively a new brand on the scene , but the quality is what for me sets them apart. With a 400 thread count, made of Egyptian hand picked cotton, you are guaranteed a good nights sleep. 

And this is how it all started, Kristian and Leo, two friends who discovered how difficult it was to find good bedding for a good price. They mean high quality, high comfort and good design should not cost a fortune and they have done exactly so. Do read on their quality, it is quite impressive!Their weaving and stitching is carried out in a family-run factory, almost one hundred years back, in the Guimarães district of northern Portugal. They manufacture consciously at this factory specifically to ensure the quality of production, the conditions of textile workers and the environment. In their words : 

The strength of the threads and durability of the fabric allows you to get a product that lasts and lasts quality over time. Then you do not have to swap as often. We wish that it will give both you and the environment long-term value.

I already have a pair of sheets in white but now Abate has launched 2 different shades of grey to choose from, with the latest addition a dark grey. And how is this related with the summer days? Take my word for it, you wont sweat it, pun intended 😉
