Lundhs unveils first accessories collection
ESSENCE BY JENKINS & UHNGER
Lundhs is delighted to announce both its participation in the London Design Fair this September and the launch of a brand new limited edition accessories collection.
Created in collaboration with British and Norwegian design duo Jenkins & Uhnger, Essence is a series of tableware accessories for the home that uses Lundhs’ iconic Larvikite materials. The exclusive series is made up of three boards, two vases, three trays and a pestle and mortar using the exquisite Lundhs Emerald, Lundhs Royal and Lundhs Antique complemented by wood and brass detailing.
Characterised by graceful smooth curves, the exceptional series of limited edition pieces depicts the delicate and unique nature of each stone’s character. Catching the light in its elliptical shape, each product serves as both a statement design piece and practical kitchen accessory.
Thomas Jenkins and Sverre Uhnger said: “With Essence we wanted to create a delicate visual language that portrays the stones character. The surfaces and curves catch the light differently and show the layers and shifting colour through the stone.”
Designers Thomas Jenkins and Sverre Uhnger commented:
“We have been working with Lundhs on several occasions since we first met in 2015. Larvikite is a well-known and highly regarded stone in Norway and a natural choice for designers and architects. Every material has its own character
and properties that make it suitable for different uses. We really appreciate working with natural materials because of their appeal to the user and creating shapes and functions that enhance the aesthetic of a material is something we always strive for. Natural stone has its limits but for us that is something that gives the creative process direction. We really like the way the materials play, relate and complement each other. That they can be used in different rooms and situations, making them versatile and they are something we personally would like to use everyday”.
Marketing Director Hege Lundh said, “Here at Lundhs it’s really important for us to demonstrate the wide range of use that natural stone has. We have been working with designers from Norway and abroad on selected projects over the past few years and have experienced an increased interest in using natural stone. It is for this reason that we are now launching a series of high-end exclusive objects made of Norwegian natural stone, created by Norwegian designers, produced in Scandinavia.”
Essence by Jenkins & Uhnger will be available online at lundhsrealstone.com from 15th of November.Tags:
