Fiskars – Herb garden 冬日藥草花園燈

Lately I kept running into products that give light for plants and herbs during Finnish autumn and winter. I guess this is something people really need, at least Ii do! Here is one of them: Fiskars Herb Garden.

芬蘭正式進入十一月的黑暗季,久久不見日光也是常事,難怪現在市面上好多這樣的產品,因為真的很需要啊! 下圖是Iittala出的Herb Garden。

Local handcraft – birch bark basket

In another post I introduced the lovely modern birch bark basket designed by VersoDesign for Iittala. Here are birch bark baskets from local handcraft market. Both are beautiful, which style you like more?

之前介紹過VersoDesign為Iittala設計的芬蘭現代白樺樹皮籃,這裡來看看地方手工市集裡的版本。同樣加入手工巧思,味道卻完全不同,一個簡潔現代,一個強調傳統手作風情,你喜歡哪一種?

Baskets designed and made by Finnish local craftwoman.

Versodesign for Iittala – modern birch bark basket 現代白樺樹皮籃

One of my favorite product from VersoDesign. This basket was a co-operation result with Iittala. Other than this they also have a whole new product line coming out this autumn which combines the felt and Finnish traditional birch bark basket in a modern way, including bread basket, herb basket, mushroom basket (my favorite!)… etc.

幾週前在Iittala Outlet以近乎半價的特價買回家的置物籃,很喜歡,現在成了小孩每天進門時,可以把放手套圍巾帽子放進去的「家」。難得下手買設計品,買回家就發覺,一個溫馨好用的小設計,除了讓家裡多一份整齊,也真的讓人多一份好心情。

Moomin enamel mug by Muurla 姆米小朋友琺瑯杯

Moomin enamel mug, by Muurla. You can find it easily from many supermarket. Lovely gift for kids.

這幾天好像不小心po的照片全都與姆米相關,嗯,我真的不是故意的,大概因為最近服裝品牌在主打姆米系列,超市裡的姆米琺瑯杯也正好在折扣,因緣巧合下姆米就一直出現… 這琺瑯杯,真的很適合買給小朋友當禮物,芬蘭很多超市都找得到,算是平價好用的日常生活設計喔!

IVANAHELSINKI- Moomin clip purse 姆米小錢包

I was just thinking that IVANAHELSINKI’s new moomin collection is beautiful, but would probably be a bit expensive for me. Now I saw this, wow, this is cute, hmm, maybe this would be affordable for me? ;-)

早上看到IVANAHELSINKI在東京設計展推出的姆米系列小錢包,這也太可愛了吧!

SUKLAATILA – Finnish hand-made chocolates 芬蘭手工巧克力

SUKLAATILA – literally translated as “chocolate space”, is a Finnish hand-made chocolate brand from countryside. For me, their most interesting products are those chocolates that contains Finnish local dried berries or herbs. The one I bought to try is dark chocolate with quite a few whole dried blackcurrant. Really tasty!

 

常在各地手工或農夫市集上,遇見這間來自芬蘭鄉間的巧克力品牌: Suklaatila。經營了四個世代的巧克力品牌,將芬蘭莓果與香草加入巧克力中,就讓巧克力擁有一份具有北國氣息的天然風味。這次我買了試吃的是加了一些整顆黑醋粟乾的黑巧克力,真的很美味!

Now Here Finland – a design exhibition in Seinäjoki 2010

一個舉辦在芬蘭西部小鎮塞納約基的設計展。小鎮雖小,不到五萬人,設計活力一點也不小,向全國首都以外的設計師徵展作品的結果,就在這裡。

NowHere Finland – a national exhibition was held in Taidehalli, Seinäjoki between 16.1. – 14.2.2010, organised by Pohjanmaan taidetoimikunta.

The exhibition’s purpose is to give designers outside of the capital area opportunities to showcase their designs and network with each other. Therefore, the co-operation partners include many provincial’s art committees, whose main responsibilities are to inform designers in their local areas of the event and to promote networking as well as to enhance public’s understanding on design.

The name of exhibition was interesting. Last year when I got to know about the exhibition, I thought it to be “NoWhere Finland”, a small city in the middle of nowhere? of NowHere Finland, happening right here! Well, it is of course the latter one.

Among 400 applications from all over Finland, 43 works are chosen and exhibited.

This is a demo store for testing purposes — no orders shall be fulfilled.
