PIECE of DENMARK

The Danish design company PIECE of DENMARK works in interior design. Their high-quality designs are minimalistic and sculptural.

PIECE of DENMARK is the result of a collaboration between Danish architect Dorte Kjettrup and Danish designer Susanne Holmvang. They create designs in porcelain and glass, and they are both driven by the interactions between structure, texture and form.

PIECE of DENMARK´s handmade porcelain designs GUBEL and QUEEN are limited editions. The COGNAC design features glass blown into a form and then processed by hand. All the company’s designs incorporate light/shadow, texture and sculptural value. The Danish porcelain company is particularly known for its origami-inspired vases, which perfectly match contemporary trends based on Japanese styles.

PIECE of DENMARK is an award-winning design company represented in the DESIGN FOR 2016 book launched at the Milan fair.

The idea behind the GUBEL was to create a product with a double value. A product that is both a vase and also a sculpture in itself.

The name GUBEL is inspired by jellyfish (in Danish gopler) - floating, alluring and magical.

The name QUEEN is inspired by the carvings in the vase, which are reminiscent of a queen´s crown.

The sculptural QUEEN vase has a clean strong graphical expression. The texture and carvings create a play of light and shadow.
