Design Spotlight is a new series I am starting this year in the hopes that it becomes a regular. The aim is to look at all those classic, iconic as well as up-and-coming pieces, we covet. I want to uncover how they influenced design today as well as the designers behind them. Plus, it's always nice to have something pretty to look at!
Lisbeth picked Blue Fluted Mega Dinnerware from design icon Royal Copenhagen. This is a modern take on a classic Danish design from a 1775 dinnerware service and was lovingly achieved by artist Karen Kjældgaard-Larsen, at the ripe old age of 26.
These hand painted gems incorporate a selection of fragments from the original Blue Fluted decoration which were then enlarged to highlight the stylised chrysanthemum and its beautiful sweeping lines. They are stunning, timeless and classic. The blue and white are so very Scandinavian as well. Nice choice Lisbeth.
Did you know Royal Copenhagen offer a 24-month breakage guarantee where they will replace broken items?
