I was doing the final flip (stage three of my magazine-reading process. Don’t ask) through my Danish Christmas magazines – a gift from my gorgeous Aarhus-dwelling friend who was here on a visit – and gathering the resources for interweb searching when I came across this tin in a feature.
Despite not reading Danish, I Googled portions of the text that related to it and discovered it was a tin designed for luxury Danish grocer Irma by Randi og Katrine. Not totally my style, but something struck me about the composition and colours. What were these odd, seemingly random designs supposed to be?
So I found Randi og Katrine online and learned that they are this crazy-good Danish design duo who seem to snag these amazing project – case in point: this 35m motif for the side of a functioning transport ferry. Amazing.
Alongside that, I found their projects to include a weird parade of human buildings in New York
and a kids’ play area that would even get me back on a slide.
But the most incredible project to date figures on the tin itself. Look closely and you will see what looks like a tea pot building…
That’s because it is a teapot building! At a nursing home in Denmark. Complete with working spout.
Imagine all your childhood dreams of a proper tea party being enjoyed in your old age. Here here to the Rosenhaven Nursing Home who commissioned it and to Randi og Katrine for making it come to life.
