I have another new-season collection to share with you today, and it’s from a Danish designer whose work hasn’t featured on These Four Walls before: Kristina Dam.
Originally a graphic designer and architect, Kristina launched her Copenhagen-based design studio in 2012. Her first collection, a series of limited-edition graphic prints, was an instant hit and she soon branched out into furniture and home accessories, many created in collaboration with up-and-coming and established designers.
Kristina’s products are defined by their sculptural, minimalist qualities, which blur the line between art and design, and the latest collection is no exception. It pairs striking geometric shapes with eye-catching materials such as brass, marble, oak, stone, steel and glass, and there’s a sense of elegance to every piece.
Stand-outs for me include the ‘Grid’ cabinet, which has perforated steel doors and a marble top, and the matching wall shelf and coat stand, both available in black and white. There are also sleek daybeds and benches that blend Japanese and Scandinavian influences, a mirrored cube table topped with marble, and the flat-packed ‘Table XL’ in oak, black or grey-oiled beech. Smaller accessories include dome-shaped concrete vases that look wonderful grouped together, a rotating mirror which is ideal for hallways and bathrooms, and silver-foil prints inspired by the modernist architecture of Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius.
My favourite pieces, though, are two creations which combine brass and beautiful curves: the ‘Mobile’ mirror, which can be hung from the ceiling as a mobile art piece or fixed directly to the wall, and the ‘Decoration Circle’, a decorative sculpture which is designed to be adorned with seasonal flowers and foliage.
