Svärtan collection & workshop
The collection is designed in India where students from NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) in New Delhi followed a workshop to develop the collection. They found inspiration in interesting patterns found on distressed walls and in the dangling cables hanging over the streets. They then made abstract imprints and drawings using all kinds of techniques; from ink blots and threads to burning holes in white paper and I really enjoyed trying the same.
In the tent the new Skogsta collection was presented, which I showed on the blog this week, I really liked to see the table in real life and even wonder how it would look in my kitchen! What do you think?
Hemsmak is a limited edition of jars, tins, buckets and bottles. Last March in Iceland I visited Designers Hildur Sigurdardottir and Olof Birna Gardarsdottir from Reykjavík Letterpress in their atelier, for IKEA they designed several tags and labels to organise your jars or make them into a present.
Most collections from this blogpost will be in stores this month. Next month the Sittning collection, based on over 40 pieces of dinnerware,glasses, cutlery, vases, candle holders and tablecloths made from natural materials such as cotton, mouth-blown glass and solid wood
