PIECE of DENMARK is the collaboration between architect Dorte Kjettrup and designer Susanne Holmvang.

piece of denmark 001

Dorte and Susanne are based in the town of Aarhus and they share a great fascination with the play of light and shadow, with a universe of beautiful designs from the past and modern graphic styles which are all reflected in their productions.

At twenty21 we currently offer two designs by Piece of Denmark: the Gubel and the Queen.

GUBEL small and large by Piece of Denmark

The idea behind the GUBEL was to create an object with a double value. An object which is functional –  a vase – and which is also a beautiful and tactile sculpture. The name GUBEL is inspired by jellyfish (in Danish gopler) – a floating, alluring and magical sea creature.

The QUEEN is a more traditional vase with carvings which are reminiscent of a queen´s crown, hence the name. This sculptural vase has a clean strong graphical expression and its carvings create a play of light and shadow.

Both objects are handmade in a small pottery studio on the Danish island of Langeland and currently available at twenty21.

twenty21 has been a stockist of Exentri wallets for some years now but the popularity of this clever little leather wallet from Norway shows no sign of abating. So many reasons why this is so.

First, this wallet is seriously compact measuring 7cm x just over 9cm. It fits in your back or front pocket with ease.

Second, there is a cut out window on both sides of the wallet. This allows you to flick the card in the slot out with your thumb without opening the wallet. The two cards that you use the most should go in the two outer slots.

Third, you have four more slots for your card. You can put more than one card in these slots.

Fourth, there is a long slot for your notes. Coins will have to go into the glove box in the car or the big coin jar at home.

The Moomin mugs by Arabia of Finland have landed at twenty21.

In 1945 the first Moomin story – The Moomins and the Great Flood – was published in Finland and Sweden. The story is about Moominmamma and Moomintroll’s search for the missing MoominPappa and how in the process they found their way to Moominvalley. From this first story, the Moomins were born.

Finnish brand ARABIA, known for its high quality ceramics, launched the very first Moomin series in the 1950s in collaboration with the writer Tove Jansson.

The Moomins share a straightforward approach to life; they live in harmony with nature, they welcome visitors and wanderers in their life and home. Every now and then they go on journeys of explorations, knowing they always have a safe home to return to. They also like to organised parties. These and other moments of Moomin life are depicted in the series of ARABIA mugs now available in store and online.

Enter the colourful world of Moomins…we have seven different colourful mug designs now in stock…make your way to MOOMINVALLEY now

Livingly was established in 2008 with the sole vision of adding inspiring and original creative Danish artistry to the home.

At the beginning, Livingly reintroduced and re-issued a famous collection of paper cuts and hanging mobiles from the Danish artists and designers Anni and Bent Knudsen dating back to the mid-1950s. Over time, they have added a very wide range of mobiles, cards designs and Christmas decorations made from paper.

The recently released collection also includes mobiles made from timber such as the SCALA and the BLADES mobiles.

twenty21 is currently the only Australian stockist of Livingly mobiles. You can find our current range by CLICKING HERE.


 

When the Iittala Glassworks opened in 1881, there were 20 other glassworks in Finland. Glassmaking was a dynamically progressing and expanding branch of industry but many of the factories were small and short lived. But 135 years later, Iittala is still one of the few companies in this sector in Finland. Today Iittala has grown into a well-known corporate group focusing on stylish products for drinking, preparing and serving food.

twenty21 is very excited to welcome as part of its homeware range some of the timeless designs from this prestigious brand.

Fancy that. SKANDINAVISK, the company  that creates candles inspired by the scents of Scandinavia – was founded by two English men, Shaun Russell and Gerry Kingham, who fell in love with two blonde Scandinavian women over a decade ago.

After each moving to the region, working for big American multinationals and living between Copenhagen and Stockholm, they also fell gradually in love with the Scandinavian way of life: the focus on life’s small moments, the priority of family over career, the cycle to the office, the home at 4pm, the raw nature, the endless summers. Well, it is easy to do. It’s an enviable lifestyle that even the gloomiest winter cannot temper.

Both believe the absolute essence of Scandinavian lifestyle is in the colour, light and warmth of a flickering candle flame and a glow that not only burrows deep through the wax, but one which nourishes the soul too.

Scandinavians use more candles than any other group of people in the world.

They use them morning, noon and night.

Twelve months a year.

Because they know that a candle makes any moment softer, more informal, cosier. And they are amongst the world’s happiest people.

All you need is love. We already knew that. There is a lot of love in these candles. So, spread the love and happiness around.

As an introductory offer, all Skandinavisk scented candles will be sent postage free anywhere in Australia until Sunday 18th October 2015. Just enter the coupon ‘skandifree’ at checkout and tick on the free postage option.
