The #fidji #bottle #designed by #KjellEngman features #beautiful swirls of #rainbow #glass inspired by oil on water. The long neck was modelled after pipe organs due to his love of #music. While we haven't been able to find exactly when Engman first created these lovely bottles, we can say he has had a close working relationship with #Swedish #glassworks company @kostaboda since #1978. This #iconic piece of #scandinavian #glassware is still available through #kostaboda today.

It apparently takes two #designers to change a light bulb.  Or at least that's how many it takes to design the #stepladder to change one.  Sure that battered old wooden #ladder with paint stains has its charms but if you want something as #chic as your #furniture then look no further than the #Upper ladder from #Kartell.  This #stylish little ladder not only looks great, it's extremely pragmatic with good grip on each step, a metal frame with capacity to hold up to 260kg, but best of all…

#HelenaRohner is one of #Spain's most well known #jewellery designers, known for her mastery of #silver which is a major component of her work.  She created the #HelenaTableset in #2007 at the request of #GeorgJensen. The range relies on #organic yet simple structures made of #stainlesssteel and #porcelain.  Rohner describes the #Helena #Teapot as being reminiscent of a steamboat, with a softly sloping peak. She has designed the matching porcelain #saucer to protect surfaces from heat.  In…

#AteenanAamu or #MorningInAthens is a delicate #glass #sculpture by #Finnish #designer #KajFranck.  Inspired by the sound of churchbells while on a trip to #Greece, Franck #designed these #beautiful #windchimes that sound like #bells when moved by #wind.  Originally created in #1953, they were available during the years 1954 -1975, the early 90's and today. Producted in the famous #Nuutajärvi glass factory, these #handblown #chimes are available through @iittala.

#Industrialdesigners have knowledge of many materials - each with their own unique properties and quirks. Innovator and pioneer, #AnneClairePetit has made an #art of #industrialdesign with #crochet and #knitting.  The #Dutch company is well known for its gorgeous #handmade items for kids. Her line has expanded to include household items such as stools, hat racks and other goods... just like this incredible crochet #birdcage. Calling it merely "#crafts" is belittling ground breaking…

#IsseyMiyake is #Japan's most celebrated #fashion #designer.  His work is almost #sculptural, contouring material around the human form in innovative ways.  If one fashion designer could bridge the gap to #industrialdesign, Issey would be the top of most people's lists... he was also apparently top of #Iittala's list.  The Issey Miyake #vase is part of the #PauseForHarmony range, which is a collaboration between #Miyake and Iittala.  In development for over four years, the vase's fine lines…

No showcase of #KayBojesen's family of #animals would be complete without a nod to his #1936 #rockinghorse.

When people think #liquid #metal two things come to mind: Mercury and killer time travelling robots from the future.  But #Danish brand #GeorgJensen has given us something else to think about.  The #Cobrabowl has an organic liquid quality that reminds you of ocean waves, or the rhythmic swaying of a #Cobra for which the #bowl was named.  #Designer #ConstantinWortmann has created a family of Cobra products, all inspire the same sense of elegant movement.  This multi-pupose #StainlessSteel…
