TANSSI BOWL

A little while ago I was invited to the Iittala showroom here in Oslo.
I was shown their autumn news, which was going to be revealed to the world at this years Milan fair. I was also given information about the Iittala history, production and designers. Such an interesting and thrilling story, it`s absolutely worth reading up on.
From the event I got a little Tanssi bowl by Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala.

" Tanssi - meaning ‘dance’ in Finnish - is a new tableware collection illustrated by London-based Finnish artist Klaus Haapaniemi. The Tanssi pattern has been inspired by the visual designs by Klaus Haapaniemi for the Finnish National Opera production of The Cunning Little Vixen, a Czech opera by Leoš Janáček. The sad yet beautiful story exploring the co-existence of animals, humans and the eternal cycle of life, comes alive in Haapaniemi’s rich designs on tableware created by Finnish designer Heikki Orvola."

APARTMENT LOVE - COMPACT LIVING


It is true. Size doesn't matter. I've fallen for this little apartment in Gothenburg, Sweeden, which is a great example of compact living. I love its smart solutions, the cool kitchen in the living room and the fact that the interior is filled with only necessary essentials. It fills me with inspiration.

From a rainy day indoors. When all we did was play, sing songs and eat pancakes.
