Phots: Ann Sandy, Tisca & Photowall

Last week Polehem Pr invited over 40 representatives from the interior and lifestyle branch here in Oslo, to the Interior dinner of the year "-event. Together with viewings of the autumn releases from their represented brands, we got a good insight of some of the histories behind the brands, as the carpet manufacturer Tisca. Such beautiful carpets handmade in Romania. The night topped of with an excellent dinner.

Thank you so much for having me.

DESIGNER ILSE CRAWFORD AND IKEA

A design collaboration between the well known designer Ilse Crawford and Ikea helps Ikea improve its environmental and design credentials. Together they have designed a collection exploring natural materials witch purpose is to fit into everyday life. The materials, cork, glass, sea grass and bamboo helps us stimulate our scenes, they feel as good as they look. Cork also helps absorb noise, and helps create a peaceful environment in a room. I like the straight modern lines in this sustainable interior design and that the furniture is easy to move around. 
The collection is called Sinnerlig, and will be available in stores from august 2015.

TANSSI BOWL

A little while ago I was invited to the Iittala showroom here in Oslo.
I was shown their autumn news, which was going to be revealed to the world at this years Milan fair. I was also given information about the Iittala history, production and designers. Such an interesting and thrilling story, it`s absolutely worth reading up on.
From the event I got a little Tanssi bowl by Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala.

" Tanssi - meaning ‘dance’ in Finnish - is a new tableware collection illustrated by London-based Finnish artist Klaus Haapaniemi. The Tanssi pattern has been inspired by the visual designs by Klaus Haapaniemi for the Finnish National Opera production of The Cunning Little Vixen, a Czech opera by Leoš Janáček. The sad yet beautiful story exploring the co-existence of animals, humans and the eternal cycle of life, comes alive in Haapaniemi’s rich designs on tableware created by Finnish designer Heikki Orvola."
