Do you long for Sunday dinners at your grandmother’s or just love old, beautiful glass? With SÄLLSKAPLIG you can recreate the best of the good old times in your own home. The designer Hanna-Kaarina Heikkilä, was inspired by yesterday’s traditional glassware when she created the patterns and shapes in the SÄLLSKAPLIG series.
Hanna-Kaarina is an enthusiastic glass collector. “I love glass from different eras and places. For SÄLLSKAPLIG I was inspired by the glassware you can find in dusty old flea markets,” she says.
Glass has been a part of our history for thousands of years – as everyday objects, but also as something that is used only on special occasions. This difference is something Hanna-Kaarina would like to erase. “Setting a table shouldn’t be so serious, it should be fun. Sometimes you just want to add a silver lining to a regular Monday morning. By drinking juice from a tall wine glass, you can make the beginning of the week feel more like the start of the weekend.“
“To me, glass is a valuable material. I think it’s fascinating that you can transform a simple matter like sand into beautiful and useful objects and shapes. I also like that glass is sustainable since it can be recycled in a never-ending loop,” says Hanna-Kaarina. All the glasses, bowls and carafes in the SÄLLSKAPLIG series speak the same language but have a strong character on their own. With the different heights you can create a billowy glass landscape on the table. “It’s a mix of organic shapes and geometric patterns that can be combined with tableware you already have at home. I hope SÄLLSKAPLIG inspires to new ideas for the set table and perhaps more festive everydays.”
