Best new Scandinavian Design released in September

The selection is Denmark-heavy and covers a wide range from lighting via a kitchen solution to a turntable design from the 70s.




FRITZ HANSEN – A SENSE OF COLOR


Another household name with roots in Denmark, Carl Hansen & Søn, has released a wonderful sofa that nudges you to talk to each other on the upcoming dark autumn days. The Sideways Sofa by Danish designer Rikke Frost places you sideways to each other in order to encourage natural conversation. That the sofa is pure eye candy is more than a pleasant side effect.

It’s safe to say that Danish furniture design company Fritz Hansen is a household name. Building on its heritage, Fritz Hansen is introducing 16 new colors for the iconic Series 7, Ant, and Grand Prix Arne Jacobsen designs.


The colors have been created in collaboration with Italian editor, design curator, and gallerist Carla Sozzani who is the mind behind noted boutique 10 Corso Como. In order to create a red thread that unites the collection and enables endless pairing options, all colors consist a splash of red. Scandinavian furniture is all about natural wood, black, and white? Think again!

NUURA – MIIRA CIRCULAR


Denmark-based Nuura is inspired by Nordic light. Just in time for the dark months, Sofie Refer has designed a few beautiful novelties to brighten up your home. A clear highlight is Miira Circular. The circular chandelier is an expansion of the award-winning Miira collection and available in two sizes, with six or eight mouth-blown glass domes. No matter whether opal white or optic clear glass, it spreads sensual light while serving as a beautiful eye-catcher in your interior.






BANG & OLUFSEN – CLASSICS


During 3 Days of Design, Danish consumer electronics powerhouse Bang & Olufsen showcased the new pilot project “Classics.” The aim of this project is to explore how the heritage and value of some of the company’s most iconic products can be preserved through refurbishing, restoring, and recreating.
