Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Höganäs by Front

I don't know how many of you outside of Sweden have heard of Höganäs? It's an old Swedish porcelain company, making durable everyday stoneware like cups, plates and bowls. But they are most known for their jugs, a design that's been around since 1835. You can find at least one in every Swedish home.

A short time ago Höganäs launched a whole new collection designed by Front, who I'm pretty sure you've heard about since they are one of the most hyped Swedish design groups right now. Front is more known for crazy designs, like the horse lamp for Moooi, so I was very curious to see what would come out of this unexpected collaboration. When I saw the results, I was convinced they had created a new classic. They have based all of the products on the shape of the old jug, just cutting it off at different heights and scaling it up or down. All of the items come in all of the different glazes so you can mix and match to your heart's content.

I'm guestblogging over at the Höganäs Keramik blogg today (in Swedish), so click on over there to see what else I have to say about the products, and which ones that are my favorites!

    Det ser verkligen ut som koppar man vill njuta av sitt te eller kaffe i.

    I have been coveting a Hoganas coffee pot for some years but by the time they reach us here in New Zealand they are oh so expensive... :(

    Jag tycker det är astufft att operahuset i Sydney är täckt med kakel från Höganäs, förstår inte varför de inte använder det i sin reklam. 5 plattor har bytts ut under året, FEM!
