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

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 and small Gubel by Piece of Denmark

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.
