This is it folks!
I am introducing you to my new found studio space here in Copenhagen, it's been a while since updating anything, as I guess I was hoping for, things have been busy since I got this place.
If you're interested in it visiting, opening hours are 10 am - 5 pm everyday, except Sunday. Shoot me an email, and we'll figure something out!
-The Makers Shirt -
A translation of a well lived garment - The classic Levi's two-pocket shirt, which my Dad got on one of his road trips to The U.S. as a young carpenter and soon to be, architect.
Wearing it throughout continuous seasons and years as a casual summer shirt, it ended up evolving into 'work wear'. Recognized as the life of a carpenters shirt.
It's indigo dye fading, shades of blue becoming endless. Bleached marks from the sun on his shoulders. Darker shades underneath and above. Leaving marks and hints. Pocket flip, backside and collar.
Areas becoming thin as muslin, and as I grew older, reasons to make my monthly 'pocket money' - patch for patch, with my humble customer's hope in mind, extending it's life - if not entirely, then just some.
The piece is a tribute to the life of a well loved garment, the wholeness of a cloth when worn out and felt out. Emerged with it's wearers identity.
Two pieces of these handmade honey washed cotton shirts left, size 36 and 38.

Throwback from a month of residence in beautiful old historical Downtown Los Angeles - The studio of Lindon Schultz Architects.
Hosted by my dear friend, Caroline Jurovic, I spend the month of March editing found material, abandoned goods from trips to the desert - Joshua Tree, books from Caroline's booksale, daily walks around the historic Garment district blocks, beach trips, conversations with Claire Cotrell, Elena Chien and much more..
Schultz, The in-house architect at dosa inc. + creator of all the minimalistic wooden furniture you see on the pictures, a local contributing architect and most recently a collaborator and creator of displays at the dosa exhibition 'white wave' at Dower Street Market in Ginza, Tokyo - has got such an eye for content, space and composition.
A reminder of the importance (and simplicity) of space and light. A clean and simple source of evolving creativity
Scrapwork curtain made for a private customer in Copenhagen. The piece is made out of linen, hemp, silk and cotton.
Carolina's Crysanthemum Tisane
Poor a handful dried (yellow, not white, since these are sometimes bleached) whole crysanthemum flower buds in a teapot
Add purified boiled hot water
As the flowers get rehydrated, they start to unfold. Let sit in the pot for 4 minutes.
If you like to add sweetener, Stevia is a good solution. It is alkalizing and non acid in addition to other sweeteners, among a whole lot of other great benefits (this is also known to be one of the only sweeteners that diabetics can have. Hippocrates Health Institute).
Enjoy and have a beautiful Sunday!

Revealing. Something. Sacred.
As everything ells I do.
A couple of month ago, I decided to go back to LA - the one place on this planet that I know for sure is holy ground to me and my creativity. It's where I create, flourish, thrive and feel at my absolute highest, all at once.
Mega powers going on.
Not only because of the wild and absolutely stunning nature with everything you can imagine of super powers like daily earth quakes, magical LA light, sunsets, space's, clean green medicine foods, packed bountiful farmers markets all year around..
The WIDE OPEN, WIIIDE OPEN Pacific ocean, fields and mountains.
But also just because there's that pull inside.
Then, the Desert. Dry, grounding red earth. Sage, tumbleweed... the words that comes to mind, tumbling away..
Always been there. Always felt it.
Thanks to my Dad, sitting in the backseat of his car. Going on long architectural trips together with our small family. Up along the coast. Experiencing light and space of California.
Wright, Lautner, Schindler.
I really am not sure I have the right words for it all.
That's how grand.

I have been wanting to share some pictures of the QUILT & STRIPES project that I worked on all of 2013 - A collaboration between Mads Norgaard and I, handmade by the sweetest production ladies at Place Du Bleu in Copehagen.
We embarked on the project in early spring '13 and this is the result !
The quilts have been made out of jersey remnants from Norgaards iconic 101 striped T-shirt, originally designed by Jorgen Norgaard in '67.
The pattern is made out of a repeated form that occurs as a remnant in the production of the T-shirts. All quilts have been laid op by hand, carefully composed in colors and stripes and filled with organic wadding with Oko-tex 100 cotton on the back.
It's super cold in Copenhagen for the moment and might be the perfect time for being tucked in one of these :)
Quick Paris visit by late-summer-early-autumn. Loved the stacked plants and pottery patterns walking the streets of Marais
