The Nyhavn Vase is the perfect example of how sometimes inspiration can come to you from an unexpected place. When the designer Simon Legald created this range of vases that place was the popular historic neighborhood of Nyhavn in Copenhagen. Nyhavn is a cosy harbour area in the middle of Copenhagen and is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions with a history dating all the way back to 1671.
He took his starting point from the houses in the area, creating vases in different heights and widths and adding dusty pastel colors to complete the reference.
Simon Legald says: ”My design is often characterized by an interplay between tradition and craftsmanship. I really like working with archetypes and this vase is no exception. I have based the design on the idiom of three different techniques and combined them all to create a both recognizable and new expression.”
