The very best of Danish craft and design in new collection

9th November 2010, Comments 0 comments

The ongoing collaboration between the recognised British furniture store Skandium and the organisation Danish Crafts now results in a special collection dedicated to Skandium.

The collection is called CC+ for Skandium and was launched on 4 November in London.

It reflects the growing international focus on new Danish craft. Skandium, which has three design stores in London, has chosen to feature the collection in their flagship store in London’s leading design district of Brompton.

Skandium has always focused on Scandinavian design, which is characterised by a very high level of quality. So far, we have focused mainly on Scandinavian design classics, but with CC+ for Skandium we are now able to present the new talents in the field of Danish craft and design, says Magnus Englund, director of Skandium in London.

The presentation of the young talented generation of Danish craftspeople and designers helps give our store the profile we are aiming for.

With assistance from Danish Crafts’ curator for Crafts Collection 14, Nina Tolstrup, Skandium’s chief buyers have hand-picked 14 of Denmark’s most talented craftspeople.

All the products are curated from Danish Crafts’ previous collections to ensure the artistic quality and the craftsmanship of the products.

The emphasis on quality craftsmanship is currently growing. Major luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci emphasise the quality of their craftsmanship as a key selling point. The emphasis is not only on visible qualities such as exquisite materials, processing and finish but also on the craftsperson’s talent, passion and pursuit of perfection. Qualities that characterise Danish craft, and which the international market is increasingly appreciating.

The participating craftspeople in CC+ for Skandium are:
Ceramists Anna Olivia Kristensen and Marie Langaa, glass artists Charlotte Hargreave, Sia Mai and Bettina Schori, jewellers Josephine Winther and Jette Vogt, furniture designers Hans Sandgren Jakobsen, Søren Ulrik Petersen, Trine Charlotte Find and Povl Kjer and designers Victoria Ladefoged, Maria Kirk Mikkelsen and Helgo.
