The grand daughter of Gino Sarfatti (founder of Arteluce) and daughter of Riccardo Sarfatti (founder of Luceplan) has now started her own company, Astep. Astep will sell the collection of lamps that her father and grand father once designed and also taking over the collection that the Sarfattis onced designed for Flos. These are all my long time favourites and now I am obsessing with them even more then ever.
I have this kitchen pinned in so many moodboards but now is the first time a see some more glimpses from this amazing 18th century apartment in Varese renovated by the Italian studio Duearchitetti. Read more here.
Ann Ringstrand, one of the founders of Swedish fashion brand Hope is now launching her own label. The new perfume label under her own name includes jewellery, scented oils, perfumes, candles and the most amazing one of a kind ceramics fragrance diffusers by ceramist Maria Moyer. I love it all!
I am so sorry for the blog silence, I think it is my first almost total drop out since I started bloggng 8 years ago. But this has also been the most hectic spring for me. Ever. So many exciting and fun projects so I am not complaining but it has just been crazy much to do and no time for anything but work..
However, I have been curious for H&M s new project Arket since I first heard about it about two years ago. But now since I have started to see glimpses I am obsessing about it. This old Carl Malmsten chair Skedblad has been listed on my search engines on the auction houses for years and now Arket is taking it in production..That is very promising as a first sneakpeek!
I am in New York working for a couple of days and I really hope to get time to see the exhibition about Tokyo based designer and founder of Comme de Garcons, Rei Kawakubo at the Met. If in town, don’t miss out!
I really don’t like “Hemnetspan”, to post images from peoples homes that are for sale with out permission is for me overstepping peoples privacy. Just because you are selling your home it doesn’t mean that you have agreed to having it spread all over the blogosphere without being asked if you approve.
Enough of that, this is a “Hemnetspan” I think it was first posted here, (and I do think that this owner approves since he has been active liking these images when posted on social medias). I love the combination of some of my favorite artists, the quilt on the wall in the bedroom and off course all the Kjaerholm pieces. Well done Fredde.
My very first stop at the furniture fair in Milan last week was at the italian architect Vincenzo de Cotiis exhibition “Baroquism” it was amazing and I actually went back there several times to take it all in.
Now it is finally official, H&M will launch a new brand, ARKET. It will be a modern-day market with ready made products for men, women, children and the home and it will also include healthy cafés in some stores. The first store will open early autumn 2017 on Regent Street in London and online on arket.com. I can’t wait.
I was in Copenhagen working last week and every time I fall in love all over in these beautiful lamps by Birgitte Due Madsen Moby designed in collaboration with Jonas Trampedach 2015 and for sale in the beautiful Atelier September store. For ever on my wishlist..
Shani Ha’s “Embody Sculptures” will be inhabited by Mathilde Chapellière in a one night only performance as part of the exhibition “Nothing Twice” opening tonight at the John Doe Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC. Read more here.
