In the spring we took at look at Fritz Hansen's launch of their new collection of objects, but there is so much more to see. A personal favourite of mine, iconic Danish furniture brand, Fritz Hansen, presents with these decor accessories something functional, something decorative, something from the archives and something special. They all make extraordinary gifts for the design lover in your life, but it may be a challenge to resist picking up a second piece for yourself!
The GEO series of wooden sculptures by Jaime Hayon adds an artistic dimension to the living room, the windowsill and the Fritz Hansen Objects collection. Jaime Hayon is known for bringing playfulness to everything he creates, whether it be art, furniture design or decorative objects. The GEO sculptures #1 and #2 are the first wooden sculptures ever produced by the Spanish designer, each telling their own story.
Cecilie Manz’s series of Japanese handmade earthenware for Fritz Hansen Objects introduces a special glaze, new colours and a new Round vase. The unique glaze and colours truly underline the craftsmanship that defines Fritz Hansen quality as well as the fascination of and respect for the Japanese ceramics tradition. Like the existing Cecilie Manz earthenware, the new vases are handmade at small potteries in Seto, Japan. They express simple Scandinavian design at its best whilst coming across warm and welcoming.
Very few people know that Arne Jacobsen also designed patterns for textiles, and this new Tassel pattern is a perfect example. Irregularities meet beauty in ochre yellow - fit for autumn and for styling the modern living room at home. This graphic cushion is the successor to the Objects collection's existing cushions in the patterns Vertigo and Trapez.
The Louise candleholders are small but significant – much like Grethe Meyer’s many other designs. The Danish architect and designer named the candleholders after Louisiana, the museum of modern art located north of Copenhagen, Denmark. Originally the candleholders were made in aluminium, but for this relaunch they come in mirror-polished solid stainless steel with a silver-plated surface. The candleholders can be stacked or styled individually – and they fit both regular candles and tea-light candles.
