Hasami Porcelain

Swedish brand TypeO, previously best known for their art prints, just started a new chapter of their entrepreneurship. Their plan is to, besides their own designs, create a place for brands and products beyond the mass produced stuff that all other web shops are already offering.

”We are convinced that Scandinavia is hungry for designs that are unique, small scale and sustainable. Not necessarily organic, but with a thought of timelessness, manufactured through tried and tested techniques in materials that are made to last.”

Their first step is to present a collection of tableware, designed in California and produced in the ancient Japanese Hasami porcelain district. The stackable crockery was launched in 2014 and is the choice of Monocle coffeeshops all over the world.

I fell for the design which is both minimalist and rustic at the same time, and the practicality of everything being so neatly stackable.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
