Designership was one of the design labels which positively surprised us at Tendence 2016.
The company stands for unique and expressive designs and craftsmanship. Designership was created by a group of Danish and international designers and artists who, with their humorous and sometimes unconventional ideas, give new impulses to the Scandi style.
Particularly the new color combinations in the “Art Print” and pillow collections by Sofie Børsting were very interesting.
In her floral graphics and fabrics the Copenhagen woman mixes blue-green shades of gray-black or wool-white with a dark red or deep blue background with bronze and gold influences. Above all the black-based cushions and pictures are something new for the Scandi style since the its characteristics are usually light and pastel tones. But the combination of these designs with the light Scandinavian style revives the interior in its own way and creates an interesting tension. Sofie Børsting describes her work as graphic poetry with a touch of fairy tales.
Another design that got us excited as a lighting designer was the “Dmoch” lamp.
The lamp fascinated above all by the funny old-fashioned suspension on a small woodwind. The metal lampshade has a retro trumpet shape and reminds us of table lamps and umbrellas from the 1950s but the unusual placement of the suspension gives the shade a modern look. According to the catalog it is available in petrol, burgundy, aluminum and brushed brass. At the Tendence stand, however, we have also admired it in gold and this fits fantastically to the inspiring wallpapers of designer Toni Kjeld.
Toni Kjerd’s wallpapers were designed with the motto “movement and individualism”.
Her motif series “State of Flow” can easily be combined with one another and even if it does not look like it at first sight. The designs are slightly translucent and arranged in pattern. The basic color white remains constantly present. She works a lot with gold, and blue tones as well as dark violet. Her patterns are inspired by ornaments but also by round shapes. On tiles her motifs are also very decorative and the gold shimmers in an incredibly real color.
In addition the “Taste” collection was presented by the designer Rikke Hagen.
The collection consists of vases, bowls, mugs, plates and cups. “Taste” is available in different colors. The designer works with, among other things, white porcelain, which has interior surfaces with strong colors such as turquoise, mint green, yellow and beautiful red tones. In contrast to the objects of Jane Holmberg and her ceramic pieces of the series “Rainbowl-Collection”. Her colors are rather subtle, many rose tones and a light vanilla yellow. She also designed a decorative vase in the form of a branch, the series “Branch”, available in the colors black, white, gold and rosé.
Designer Morten Lassen, on the other hand, showed interesting-looking wooden objects as candlesticks and more. His designs are characterized by straightness – in combination with raw materials like wood and marble / stone an interesting combination.
We also had a very special interest in the fascinating fair decoration.
A designer created the wall design for the fair in 3D optics. It literally hypnotised you. In the background was partially gold foil and over it a kind of oversized pencil drawing with an imposing jungle motif.
At some spots the designer cut grasses, leaf facettes and veins, so the gold foil and white surfaces emerged in the background, creating an incomparable effect.
