A new collection connected
through common visions and values

Skagerak has just launched its new collection welcoming a wide range of exciting, innovative designs and collaborations with designers. The collection is joined by a strong belief in design that endures both functionally and aesthetically, achieved through responsible and good craftsmanship.

At first glance, Skagerak’s new collection is probably best characterized as diverse, progressive and experimenting – but on a deeper level, the new products and the designers Skagerak collaborates with are all connected through a shared belief that design should be something which endures and preserves. Endures in all sorts of weather and settings and preserves its look, function and relevance for generations.

“A task can be solved in various ways. In our new collection, we use more than 15 different types of materials which all possess unique characteristics and abilities”, explains Ditte Buus Nielsen, Design Director at Skagerak. “Despite this diversity, I believe we have succeeded in creating a common denominator for the whole collection that will endure and stay relevant for a long time, due to simple expressions and a strict focus on functionality and the quality of each material”.

Among the new members to Skagerak’s collections of designs, you find mirrors formed as water drops, wooden tables that can be made into trays, heavy metal tables with flimsy legs and lounge chairs named after a dialect used in the deep woods of Nicaragua. They all have unique stories to tell but based on a set of shared visions and core values, they also tell the story of Skagerak’s passion for good and honest craftsmanship.

Turn bench, stool and mirrors

Turn is created by the Danish designer, Line Depping. Line believes design should be simple, obvious and without any feeling of self-exaltation. Turn bench and stool are characterized by its round edges and compact form. The four legs are brought together on ground and defines an open space, which the seat is placed upon. The untreated ash leaves behind a beautiful trail of grains in the seat, which brings a feeling of raw nature into the home. Both items can easily function as side tables in the living room or bedroom as well, for books, plants or late-night snack on a Saturday night.

Meanwhile, the idea to create Turn Mirrors came from rethinking an old crafts technique of wood bending. Thus, a single piece of ash is creating a rounded frame for the mirror where the meeting point in the ends serves as the suspension. The design is reminiscent of a tennis racket, water drop and an old-fashioned snowshoe.

Miskito lounge chair

The Danish Herman Studio is behind the Miskito chair which is inspired by the Middle American aesthetics, atmosphere and craftsmanship. Miskito refers to a Spanish dialect used in the rainforest of Nicaragua. However, the design is kept clean in a Scandinavian fashion with no visible nails or fittings, and the cushion is held in place with a small wooden stick behind the backrest. Since the lounge chair is foldable you can easily bring it with you outside when the weather allows it or set it aside when you need more space. Miskito’s low sitting height and width adds a feeling of groundedness when seated.

Pulse Daybed

The Norwegian design studio Noidoi came up with Pulse daybed after a field study in Copenhagen, visiting families and their apartments to learn how personal space is constructed today. Thus, Pulse daybed interprets our growing need for flexible settings and objects in an innovative and multifunctional construction that brings new and traditional materials together. Pulse adapts to different situations, as you can fold up the mattress with a woollen upholstery and access the hatch and magazine holder. The lid covering the hatch can be used independently as a serving tray, and the magazine holder in moulded felt is also removable. If necessary, you can take of the woollen upholstery and send it for dry cleaning.

brut table

The Brut table came into life when Swedish TAF architects in collaboration with Skagerak exhibited at the Danish Cabinetmaker’s Autumn Exhibition under the theme of ‘petit’, which is easily recognized in its elegant and slender composition. Blank brass feet give the table a slightly exalted character, and halfway up the legs come together by two crossing bars that add to the stability. Despite Brut’s flimsy appearance and proportions, the heaviness of the powder coated steel makes the table rock solid and versatile in its usage.

Indskud table

Indskud is a small family of side tables in two heights that merge into one element when pushed under the other. The tabletop can freely be lifted on and off, meaning that it functions as a serving tray when coffee, breakfast or night snacks are coming in and out the kitchen.

The tables’ multifunction has dictated the simple but striking design, which complies with designer Terkel Skou Steffensen’s fundamental idea that design should be understood by everyone. This is highlighted by the way the three notches are kept visible so the table top easily fits back onto the frame after having been used as tray. With their multiple functions and light expression, the Indskud tables are quickly integrated into the home and everyday life.

Nebulosa bedlinen

Nebulosa Bed Linen is designed by All the Way to Paris and produced in 100% organic cotton sateen. Nebulosa refers to an interstellar cloud in Spanish and the poetic idea is to create a scene that makes you dream away under the infinite and starry night – right in your own bed. Nebulosa is available in two lengths and three delicate colours with dark blue, hand painted star dots carefully sprinkled over it. Besides from creating the Nebulosa bedlinen, All the Way to Paris is also behind Skagerak’s new Stripes textile collection that consists of aprons and kitchen towels, playing with the scale and expression of the classical Breton stripe.
