Button Up Deerstalker

Button Up Deerstalker

This past night was the coldest night since 1961 in Malmö and I think it’s high time to get your winter clothes on. Why not a cool button up deerstalker from Folk Clothing? Unfortunately it’s sold out at Folks own web shop but you can still order it from End Clothing.

Kompis the hospital robot

Kompis the hospital robot

When a child falls ill with a serious disease, life changes not only for the child but for everybody around her/him. And sometimes that child is forced to stay at the hospital alone and the hospital environment can surly seem frightening. To ease the child Linus Sundblad have designed a interesting concept, the hospital robot Kompis (friend in Swedish). Kompis is proposed to act as companion for the sick child and at the same time work as a communication tool for the family and friends. Wonderful designed and a very interesting concept!

The Nolitan Hotel

The Nolitan Hotel

The Nolitan Hotel gets its name from the New York neighborhood it’s situated in, Nolita (North of Little Italy). The hotel is the neighborhoods first luxury boutique hotel and as all boutique hotel should it has a well thought-out and beautiful and identity. Behind the identity we find the branding experts at Marque. And I think they have done a brilliant job giving The Nolitan Hotel a classic luxury look without making it feel dated. Lots of photos after the jump.

Hiroshima by Naoto Fukasawa

Hiroshima by Naoto Fukasawa

One of the thing that we Scandinavians got in common with the Japanese is our love for simple furniture made from natural materials. The furniture series Hiroshima, designed by Naoto Fukasawa and manufactured by Maruni, is a perfect example of that. The series is made from beech or oak that has a non-painted finish showing the natural, beautiful wood grains. After the jump you’ll be able to, besides photos, see a a video of the production of Hiroshima.

Eau-de-Vie **

Eau-de-Vie **

Eau-de-Vie ** is a cheap version of a cognac and a essential part of many old (and perhaps forgotten) Swedish long drinks. It’s been part of Systembolagets range of products since 1922. The company that makes it is now days Pernod Ricard but the beautiful, squiggly label, designed sometime in the 1950s, remains more or less unchanged. A true Swedish classic worth a post!

Murdock

Murdock

Murdock is a London based chain of Barbers and Gentleman’s stores with a classic modern identity that Atwork developed in close cooperation with Murdock owner and founder Brendan Murdock. I’m especially fond of the illustrations and color details on the different bottles and packaging. Examples of that can be found after the jump!

Compagnia dell’Arabica

Compagnia dell’Arabica

I’m not really a fan of Italian espresso, but I do like well thought-out and designed packaging. And Compagnia dell’Arabica from Caffè Corsini falls in that category. It’s the stamp-like labels that makes the coffee stand out. Sure it’s not a totally unique idea but the stamps makes it very clear where the coffee beans comes from and well, they do look nice. Closeups of the labels can be found after the jump.

Brass knife stand

Brass knife stand

I’m always on the lookout for a knife stand and I’m currently thinking of buying the Futagami and Oji & Design designed knife stand in brass and cheery wood. Unfortunately it costs ¥14175 (about 130€) and that’s a bit pricey for a knife stand, even when it’s made out of brass and as beautiful as this one.

Billerud FiberForm

Billerud FiberForm

FibreForm is a new interesting biodegradable and recyclable paper from Swedish Billerud. What makes FiberForm exiting, besides the eco-aspect of it, is its flexibility that makes it perfect for creating new and innovative packaging. I would love to work on a project that would allow me to work with FiberForm!
