Hi there. Wow it’s been quite a moment since I put the fingers to the keypad. I prepared all of my New Zealand Month posts well in advance before the voyage to Sweden and I have to say I’m really glad I did. The past couple of months I have been very preoccupied to say the least.
I’ve long admired the work of these two Norweigen designers, Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll, and previously featured a collaboration of their work for the Food Work Project on the blog. The two are most known for their designs for brands like Wrong for Hay, Muuto, Magis, Erik Jørgensen, Kvadrat and Foscarini. Now they’ve branched out and formed Nedre Foss and I’m excited to see what they will come up with next.
I met Anu online not long after starting AP&C close to two years ago, take aside that she’s such a lovely and warm person, she does a great edit of Nordic design which she shares on her beautiful blog Decordots. All of the seriously pinworthy images that she shares are found after her self confessed hours and hours of scanning through interior websites and magazines. Recently I noticed a lovely coloured wall in her home on her Instagram feed so I thought it might be fun if she wouldn’t mind sharing what she has hanging on it with us today. Please welcome Anu and all the way from Estonia!
True to Scandinavian design, Finnish designer, Anna Palomaa works very much with functionality and experimental as the backbone to her objects. While she works in many different facets of design and ceramics, I’m particularly interested in her use of reindeer hide.
