This is a coffee cup we had in our household when I grew up. It is called Spisa Ribb and is designed by Stig Lindberg. It is consider a design classic in Sweden. I have always loved the design, and a long time before I knew it was considered special. My mum still have them in her house.
This made me think of some other Swedish design classics I grew up with. And suddenly I was very proud of my mum and dad who picked all these nice things over the years. Some of them are actually in my own house nowadays, and some of them still at my mum's.
Pernilla Chair by Bruno Mattson
Kobra Telephone produced by Ericsson (can't remember the name of the designer at the moment). We had a red one.
Salt, pepper and sugar produced by Gense. From one sheet of stainless steel folded to a cone. This design is magnificent! The salt and pepper are in my house today. I love them.
Glass table on birch-construction by Alvar Aalto.
Chair Lamino by Yngve Ekstrom with sheep wool. It is standing in our lounge now.
The glass table by Alvar Aalto I actually managed to sit down on right in front of my parents when I was about 12, and of course it crashed, and I sat there with glass bits all around me being more ashamed then ever.
I bought some more beads the other day. From Humble Beads these beauties - I am soooooo exsited for them to arrive
You can tell she really likes and is influenced by Vincent van Gogh in these ones above. And she only made 3 sets of them. I am soooo happy and lucky I managed to get my hands on one of the sets.
