Based on their use of classic materials such as oak and plywood to minimalistic stainless steel, here is the DANISH™ take on which five designers to keep an eye on right now.
For Bolia, Nordvink have designed a new series of flower pots using plywood to embrace the terracotta and inspired by the Danish designers of the 1950s.
The Nordvink duo, Sanne Kyed and Anne Nørbjerg, are part of a new, young and fast-growing group of designers. Their design is powered by everyday life and they find inspiration in the behaviour of people.
Designer Rikke Brorson has just released a new multipurpose wooden ladder that serves as a place to hang your coat, bathroom shelving or any other thing you can imagine. It’s made of oak (either smoked or oiled) and is produced locally in Denmark.
Inspiration for Brorson’s designs comes from the combination of nature and everyday life. The idea is to design and produce products that are sustainable, unique and aesthetic.
Behind Copenhagen-based design brand C/RO is Camilla Rosén. Her designs are inspired by her eagerness to erase the boundaries between indoor and outdoor. The designs are handmade, crafted from recycled stainless steel and focused on reducing environmental impact. And, with her mantra of always placing quality above quantity, she has made a series of designs that are true to the modern way of Scandinavian living.
Rasmus Falkenberg is a Danish industrial designer who has been working as an independent designer for the last three years though he has been in the industry since 2001. He is inspired by people and the way they use and interact with designs and products.
For Austrian design company VITEO, Falkenberg has designed the Air Collection, a collection of outdoor furniture with clean lines, in colours true to nature and with a focus on durability.
Danish design company GEJST is inspired by the Nordic lifestyle and works with both Danish and international designers to create modern interior products that fit into Danish design thinking.
One of the latest collaborations is with Berlin-based Michael Rem. They joined forces in 2017 and designed the modular shelving system Sceene, a design inspired by the endless influence of daily life. Made of oak and fine textiles, it is a timeless piece that suits any room.
GEJST is also collaborating with German design studio Böttcher & Kayser, read more here
