Spread joy to the people! The story of Bjørn Wiinblad, the world-famous Danish artist and illustrator, is the tale of a multi-artist with creative zest who enchanted the whole world.
B

jørn Wiinblad (1918–2006) displayed his artistic talent at a young age. His style was anything but ‘conventionally Danish’. While functionalism ruled the roost in Denmark, Bjørn Wiinblad trod a very different path – one distinguished by intricately wavy lines, a rich colour palette and romantic, hedonistic universes.

Wiinblad’s natural inquisitiveness helped nurture his vigorous creative talent and his delight in expressing himself on ‘all platforms’: tapestries, ceramics, cutlery, porcelain, fabrics, posters, hotel interiors and more...

What was really important to Bjørn Wiinblad was to give free rein to his creative zest and to spread delight to Danish homes through his numerous and varied productions.

No matter what surface or medium Wiinblad chose for his creations, his style was instantly recognisable and truly inimitable. Wiinblad was one of a kind.

onsumer trends today are not necessarily directed to the acquisition of more possessions; rather, we have developed different needs. We want to ‘stage’ our own homes to a greater extent, imbuing the place we live with our own style and personality. Consumer tendencies in the market are pointing towards more colourful and more romantic products – products that make a break from the very stringent black/white look – and towards a design that can be supplemented and mixed with the more restrained style. The 2014 interpretation of Bjørn Wiinblad is very much in line with the new consumer trends, and can be mixed and matched with all kinds of products. The only limit is the imagination.
