Rosendahl recently launched a brand new collection of Bjørn Wiinblad designs. Have you seen it? Vases, plates, trays and candle holders to name some of the products. Check them all out here.
In honour of the new collection, Imerco is having an awesome competition on Facebook. They are asking you to be creative and interpret Wiinblad in your own way. All my Danish readers have the chance to enter – the prizes are freaking awesome! I’ll tell you more later in this post and show you my contribution.
You know how much I love flowers, so naturally that was my prop of choice. I used the colour palette of autumn, so I went outside to collect leaves and picked up flowers from my local florist. This is my contribution. I had fun making this – I hope you can see Wiinblad? Hehe. This was my inspiration.
Like so many other Danes from my generation I grew up with Wiinblad’s characteristic designs. My parents had vases, ashtrays and all 12 calendar platters hanging in the kitchen – I remember looking at them when eating breakfast in the morning. When they took them all down and gave them away, I held on to the December plate – my birth month. I still have it and use it as a coaster and trivet. His naive work makes me smile and has a very special place in my heart.
Bjørn Wiinblad (1918-2006) was famous for his colourful and playful designs. They stood out against the contemporary designers works. In the 60’s and 70’s when Bjørn Wiinblad was most popular in Denmark most other designers went for minimal and functional design – what Danish design are most know for around the world. But not him. He was not afraid of colours and personality.
And now to the info on the contest – we’ll take this one in Danish.
