Metal into magic

Skiller Illustration

With the introduction of the Hurricane lamp last year, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark opened up a whole new dimension of Wiinblad’s world. The tall, slender glass and metal design is a world away from the chubby porcelain designs that the multi-artist is otherwise famed for, but the great richness and the organic aspect are still evident, and the shiny silver candle holder immediately caught on with both new and old Bjørn Wiinblad fans. Metal devices remain a strong trend in modern interior design. For that reason, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is now adding a trendy metallic brass candle holder to the hurricane lamp collection, available in three sizes, with adjustable heights to suit the occasion.

Autumn in the Orient

Skiller Illustration

Da Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark i foråret lancerede porcelænsserien Gobelin, introducerede brandet samtidig en mere ukendt side af den kendte multikunstners talent: Gobelinerne. Med afsæt i de overdådige, vævede tæpper er Gobelin-seriens motiv mere trenddrevet end de øvrige produkter i sortimentet, for Bjørn Wiinblads forkærlighed for tekstiler, geometriske figurer og gulddetaljer rammer perfekt plet i tidens interiørmode. Dette efterår suppleres Gobelin-universet med to nye produkter, Cylindervasen og Kruset, der begge er kendinge i Bjørns Wiinblads univers, og hver især sætter funktionel glamour på indretningen.

Flowers and feathers

Skiller Illustration

For prolific artist Bjørn Wiinblad, life was a question of poetry and aesthetics – and no object was too small to be beautified. On the contrary, Wiinblad loved to make his mark on the smallest everyday consumer objects, magically converting them into functional art. Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is now launching two new products to spice up the table: egg cups shaped like little birds, and a salt and pepper set with a flower motif. Wiinblad’s familiar blue-and-white universe is also supplemented with a charismatic, beaked flowerpot, which is watered from behind, breaking with convention just as the artist himself did.

Christmas according to Bjørn Wiinblad

Women’s faces featured in Bjørn Wiinblad’s art throughout his lifetime. Of course, this also applied to Christmas, when his charismatic women took the form of angels, lending a heavenly sweetness and a touch of Nordic folklore to Wiinblad’s decorations. Wiinblad was inspired by Eastern mysticism and golden ornaments, and with that in mind Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is launching this year’s new Christmas products: the Lucia Advent Candle Holder with a built-in bowl and Tealight angels with silver and gold embellishments plus glamorous, Oriental-inspired glass ornaments.

The multi-artist’s tulips

Skiller Illustration

Bjørn Wiinblad was more than a multi-artist, he was an aesthete with a unique gift for delighting in all things big and small. To him, the blooming of the magnolia tree in the front garden of his artist’s home, The Blue House, was cause for celebration, and indoors, Wiinblad also loved to use flowers and florals to great effect. This spring, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is relaunching his characteristic ‘tulip’ candlesticks, which create a myriad of flowers in light when used in a group and in varying heights. The extravagant Tulip candlesticks are accompanied by a new design in blown glass, the matching Tulip vase, which bears Wiinblad’s clear signature and caters to the crisp floral bouquets of spring.

Elegant tapestries

Decorating with carpets and textiles is one of the strongest interior design trends today, calling for renewed attention to a lesser-known sphere of Bjørn Wiinblad’s artistic oeuvre – tapestries. At the height of his career, Wiinblad produced several international commissions for tapestries for art collectors as well as theatres, hotels and public buildings and the preliminary studies for these works can still be found in the artist’s home. Now, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is transferring the materiality and sensuousness of the woven universe to a new porcelain series, Gobelin, giving jugs, serving platters, and bowls a touch of golden elegance with inspiration from Wiinblad’s original tapestry drawings and the ultra-chic rhombus pattern. .

The new face of floral art

The female face with the almond-shaped eyes and the triangular nose is Bjørn Wiinblad’s signature. As a true jack of all trades, he used the motif in countless ways, including on the charismatic ceramic flowerpots, where a foliage of hair brought the female face to life. This spring, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark brings a fresh interpretation of the floral female face with the introduction of the new Flower vase, inspired by the floral art of Ikebana as a celebration of the fusion of Nordic and Japanese design that is one of the today’s hottest trends.

The Hurricane reaches new heights

Skiller Illustration

Bjørn Wiinblad is often referred to as a multi-artist, and this characterisation is spot on. For not only did Bjørn Wiinblad master a range of artistic disciplines, he also worked in all kinds of materials – textiles,tapestries, tiles and ceramics – creating products that until now have only be known to incarnate fans and connoisseurs. This is especially true of the majestic Hurricane candle holder in glass and metal, which Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is now reintroducing in three different heights.

Wiinblad sparkles again

Skiller Illustration

For more than five decades, the world has been on a first-name basis with Bjørn Wiinblad’s design. His signature idiom – and the main motif in most of his art – is the charismatic female face whose intense eyes and billowing floral hair draw the observer into Bjørn Wiinblad’s bohemian design universe. This is also true of this autumn’s new vase, Felicia, which is named after one of the multi-artist’s most famous female motifs – now hand-applied in gold to tempt all fans of the current metallic trend, as well as making a perfect addition to this year’s holiday decorations.

Wiinblad sees red

Skiller Illustration

To many, Bjørn Wiinblad is synonymous with the colour blue. However, the charismatic multi-artist actually worked in an extremely varied colour palette throughout his lifetime. This season, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark turns the page on a new chapter in the story of the popular maximalist with the introduction of a series of Christmas decorations and tableware – and naturally, Christmas is also red in Wiinblad’s universe.

Wiinblad’s winter wonderland

Scandinavia is known for simple living and for taking a minimalist approach to design and interior decorating. However, the coming of the holidays tends to bring out the maximalist in most of us. We dig out our holiday decorations – both old and new – and an intimate and cosy atmosphere evolves as we decorate for Christmas with plenty of colour, gold, silver and silk ribbon. Now there is good news for fans of modern Christmas décor. Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is happy to introduce a colourful handful of classic Christmas ornaments, tealight candle holders, a vase and a decorative bowl to make this Christmas a glamourous and green affair.

Cylindrical charm

The cylindrical vase and round platter are two of Bjørn Wiinblad’s signature products. Throughout his life, he decorated these two design objects with various motifs and colours, because the round shapes are a perfect match to Bjørn Wiinblad’s fantastical style, giving them plenty of room to romp on the bottom of the platter and the sides of the vase. Now, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is adding to the story about Denmark’s great multi-artist with the introduction of two new round platters, two cylindrical vases and a votive candleholder that rounds off Bjørn Wiinblad’s classic designs with a contemporary twist.

Balls of Wiinblad delight

Laying the table for the luxury bohemian

Bjørn Wiinblad’s creations have left an indelible mark on Danish designs for the table and the home. His fantastical style and love of colours beautifully embody the spirit of the 1960s and 70s, and right now the retro style is making a strong comeback in fashion. This same trend is also seen dressing up today’s home decors. This spring, there is therefore good news for everyone, but especially for contemporary hippies, as Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark introduces two new tablecloth designs with matching cloth serviettes that lay the table for guests and set the tone for an extravagant everyday life á la Wiinblad.

Maximalist metallics

When the Bjørn Wiinblad brand was revived last year in a new and more up-to-date version, it also marked the return of “maximalism” to Danish design. Bjørn Wiinblad’s fantastical motifs celebrate the opulent and extravagant in everyday objects, and in this regard, there is no escaping metallics. This autumn, Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark is therefore launching a brand new collection of bonbonnières, candlesticks and vases with motifs in silver and gold, all are dedicated to the metallic mega-trend while remaining faithful to the Wiinblad design heritage.

Bjørn Wiinblad is experiencing a design renaissance and a number of the artist’s most popular products have been relaunched in recent years.

Decorative porcelain plates with poetic season motifs and the signature colour “blue” are important elements in the Bjørn Wiinblad universe, and both are more topical than ever. This autumn, the decorative porcelain plate is making a comeback as Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark launches a series of colourful oval plates featuring various motifs for decoration and table use. The multifunctional plates are supplemented by a trio of new cups – one with a handle and two insulated – adding subdued hues and dusty blue to Wiinblad’s magically modern universe.

Old original pieces are being combined with contemporary new releases, and a current exhibition at Arken Museum of Modern Art highlights the many sides and creative platforms of the talented multi-artist.

Wiinblad vender tilbage

Skiller Illustration

Keramikeren Bjørn Wiinblad er kendt for sin fabulerende streg og frodige kvindeskikkelser, og hans enorme produktion tegner sig for et af de mest farverige kapitler i dansk brugskunsthistorie. De seneste årtier har der været lidt stille omkring Wiinblad, men ikke længere.

Dette efterår genopstår Wiinblad nemlig som brand, når Rosendahl Design Group skriver videre på fortællingen om den livsglade multikunstner og lancerer Bjørn Wiinblad 2.0. Kollektionen hylder Wiinblads autentiske og eventyrlige univers, men har samtidig et moderne, funktionelt formsprog, der bejler til både nostalgiske samlere og nye generationer.

Efter mange år i skyggen er Wiinblads produkter i dag blevet trendy loppefund og eftertragtede samlerobjekter, ja, ligefrem kult, og denne tendens griber Rosendahl Design Group fat i med relanceringen og revitaliseringen af Bjørn Wiinblad anno 2014.

Resultatet er en kollektion på 47 nye Wiinblad-dele med motiver, der er genskabt 100 % efter Bjørn Wiinblads originale streg, men indsat i et moderne farve- og produktunivers, der rummer en autentisk, men også tidssvarende fortælling om Wiinblad.

Samarbejdet med Rosendahl Design Group støtter desuden op om fortællingen om Bjørn Wiinblad ved at yde økonomisk støtte til, at Det Blå Hus omdannes til et arbejdende museum, præcis efter Wiinblads eget ønske.
