Hammock for vikings – Head over heels by Zivic!

 ITS SO F…… PRICY, but…  

Are you into leather, shearling and steel?

Are you amazed by hand and aesthetic appeal of domestic harness?  

Do you find perfection dead boring?

Do you want interior to be lively and storytelling?

YES, YES, YES, YES – then you might fall head over heels for

JIM ZIVIC DESIGN

Jim Zivic’s is inspired to create things both useful and artistic and his approach to furniture design is very “Industrial”. Zivics signature materials are leather, raw steel and felt. He had even made a wall-to-wall leather floor for a Tribeca boutique, sounds awesome – who wouldn’t have a leather floor!!

A significant part of his furniture collection is exclusively represented by Ralph Pucci International.

I would really like a hammock at home and of cause the first one that really hit me was the ´Link Leather Hammock´- also called the Viking Hammock, which Ill never even nearby, but this could also be a CALL FOR HANDYPEOPLE – anybody out here who can fix a similar one??? 😉 (I promise Ill do a post on less pricy hammocks for your home)! Not only did I fall in love with the hammock – check out Zivics ´Jaguar Loounge Chair and the leather ´Console´ – simply STUNNING!

HANDY-PEOPLE – is this a DIY?? 🙂

THUMBS UP for “Puzzled” by Ernsting!

More from Hanna Emelie Ernsting the German-American designer! Talking about when interior completes the puzzle, back in 2007 Hanna launched “Puzzled” a porcelain vase that consists of ten individual pieces that you can combine into different forms and expose  the colors you like or use each piece separate! With the vase comes a rubber band that holds the parts together and gives the impression of a flower bouquet from the market – I think this vase has what it takes, its beautiful and can be be serious, fun or playful! What do you think?

Again I am sure this won’t be the last post about Hanna Emelie Ernsting –

#3 YOUNG DANISH DESIGN – TREASURES

THIS IS THE #3 IN THE SERIAL OF YOUNG DANISH DESIGNERS!!

Nina Bruun – educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2012. I got acquainted with Nina Bruuns design two years ago at an exhibition at the Academy in Copenhagen. It was love at first sight, when I saw her VARY couch and I immediately contacted Nina if it would be in production – maybe it would!

Today Nina Bruun is the founder of NINA BRUUN Design Studio located in Copenhagen. The studio offers; a full creative direction, furniture and interior design service, from the two-dimensional page to the three-dimensional space, and from the real to the conceptual. 

Today you can find Nina Bruuns Permanent Collection at Museum of Arts and Design, New York.

I have chosen to show my two favorites Bruun design – of cause the VARY couch (which I still haven’t been lucky to catch) and the HALO lamps!

Nina has worked with how our lifestyle has changed the use of the sofa, today the couch serves as the heart of many homes where we sleep, work, eat, love and socialize – this is what I she tried to accommodate in this solution – and therefor the perfect name VARY! 

As for Anita Johansens Daybed shown the #2 young Danish design post, Nina Bruun has challenged the traditional way to upholster by choosing loose upholstered elements that makes it possible for the user to customize the sofa.

Stunning, right?  The lamp works alone, but I think its really awesome in pairs or in groups!

The HALO lamps are inspired by the total solar eclipse – the indirect light creates a circle of light behind the lamp. The ring of light is known from the moons covers the sun and the outer layer of the sun becomes visible for the human eye – the corona.

I am totally crazy about Nina Bruuns design, both the couch and the lamps work perfectly in a mixed style – It doesn’t have to be minimalistic, simple and elegant – could be cool in a mix of second hand, vintage meets modern design – What do you think?

#2 YOUNG DANISH DESIGN – TREASURES

THIS IS THE #2 IN THE SERIAL OF YOUNG DANISH DESIGNERS!!

Anita Johansen – educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2012. Her Graduation project and her first launching furniture – The Daybed, was highly acknowledge and recommended – it has a classic look and all the way superb details! Its an exploration of traditional furniture upholstery – Anita has taken upholstery to the next level, perfect suitable for modern life style with features, that makes it easy to change upholstery component.

Lately The Daybed by Anita Johansen is in Wallpapers report for Maison et Objet 2014!

With her colleague Laura Faurschou, Anita Johansen is one of the founders of Johansen Faurschou focus on the scandinavian approach to simplicity and functionality. The company works within the frame of traditional craftsmanship with an focus on today’s need for exhibiting and accessorizing our homes. Their ambitions is to create products with a simplistic appearance and an honest expression because the designers seek avoid unnecessary details.

In January this year Johansen and Faurschou joined the international furnishing show, imm cologne as part of the group danishdesign MAKERS who collective presented a collection of objects.

Johansen Faurschou was presented with their ´Blind Pendant´ and ´Frame Mirror´!

The ´Blind Pendant´ is designed around the idea of being able to generate both general and focused lighting. The pendant has a shade that can be raised and lowered on the cord, thereby increasing or decreasing the light’s intensity and span.

The ´Frame Mirror´has its reference to the classic barber mirror. The small tray shelf ads a function to the mirror and the mirror ads a dimention to the itemsyou display on the shelf.

I find Johansen Faurschou design really elegant, simple but still edgy – What do you think?
