Today's Mix Up post features three beautifully elegant Danish brands. The first is Woud, a new discovery promising designs that radiate "love at first sight” through colours, textiles, wood and aesthetics. Admittedly my heart started racing as soon as I took in the range of stunning products. With the perfect combination of form and function, Woud strives to add a touch of innovation while staying true to the simplicity anchored in their Nordic design heritage. With the launch currently underway, Woud will be presenting their new collection at the upcoming design fairs in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Take a look at the Woud SS15 catalogue and follow on Instagram and Facebook for all the behind the scenes details.
I've been admiring the Danish brand GamFratesi for some time. A visit to Cult Design late last year sealed the deal when I saw (and tested) their Beetle Chair. Manufactured by Danish company Gubi, GamFratesi takes their inspiration from both the anatomy and aesthetic of the beetle, reinterpreting the beetle’s hard and characteristic shell and structure in a chair that, like an actual beetle, has a hard exterior and a soft interior. Timeless and extremely conformable, the chair is fully upholstered in Kvadrat fabric with leather piping detail. I've also been itching to share the beautiful Verandah Restaurant in Copenhagen with you and would love to one day visit it in person. Designed by GamFratesi, it features both the Beetle Chair and Beetle Stool.
