Here at Enkelhed we first set eyes on Applicata on visiting brand agency Tokola in London and we instantly felt a connection to their high quality, beautiful and simple designs. We chose a range that would sit seamless amongst other homewares in the house and a range for the kitchen. 

We of course had to have the adorable Arch You houses is a series of houses produced in wood and concrete. We offer two sizes and in two colours and one in concrete. Designed by Anne Boysen; She takes a practical approach to her profession as she plays with the combination of form and material and the search for new thinking. She is fascinated by details and good craftsmanship, and she loves to challenge new techniques.

Anne Boysen has been trained in art, architecture and design, most recently as an architect at the Aarhus School of Architecture. The combination of art and design is the driving force in her work, which includes furniture and interior design, painting and sculpture.

 

 

Also new to this year was the Baam magazine rack designed by Kajsa Wilner. The hallmark of Studio Kajsa Willner is to dare, to explore and to in a playful way challenge the preconception of what design is and should be. Why? because Kajsa strives to constantly continue to surprise, amaze and make people happy by giving them unique design experiences. The magazine rack made of Ash with a light structure designed to enhance the magazines you place in it. Designed for you who wants your magazines to take place as a part of your home interior.

 

This is the first year that the company have entered into ceramic based products and we will soon be stocking this range which includes the STAK collection we as simple put is a stackable range of kitchenware. Including a new take on tapas bowls which is a little more modern than just terracotta, not that we don't love the classic Spanish style.

The idea was to create functional products with a sculptural look when stacking. Therefore they have experimented with storage solutions so that the products appear sculpturally in any occasion. Designer Kristina Vildersbøll is fascinated by stacks and things interactions when combined - that new forms arise when things are put together. In 2014/15 were Kristina Vildersbølls stackable bowls Sequence part of Danish Crafts Collection CC18, Kristina has previously worked at Ditte Fischer, taught at the new Danish porcelain factory on Bornholm and now have her own workshop in Copenhagen.

The Luna Tray and Torso Vases made from quality oak by designer Anders Nørgaard Danish designer Anders Nørgaard inspiration can be sparked off by a new material or developing something that doesn't simply fall into place at once. It is also quite clear from the multitude of different products he has designed, from kitchens and beds to office furniture and lamps, or cinema seats to wood-burning stoves. He is most fascinated by the sofa. Anders Nørgaard trained as an architect and opened his own drawing office in 1994. He has since worked in design in the widest sense, drawing furniture and practical products for BoConcept, TM Line, Kinnarps, Stouby Furniture, JydePejsen og Trip Trap.
