Over the last fifteen years, ArchitectMade have been on a mission to beautifully recreate timeless products by some of Denmark’s most historically acclaimed architects. But their latest launch ‘Flow’ is a distinctly modern design.
Working in collaboration with critically acclaimed architect, visual artist and product designer Vibeke Rytter, the new series, which comprises of three incredible ceramic vases, takes Copenhagen’s Grundtvig’s Church as their starting point.
Built between 1921 and 1940, this striking symbol of expressionist architecture is a must-visit for everyone on a trip to the Danish capital. Designed by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, and completed by his son Kaare Klint, the founding father of modern Danish furniture design, it is this striking building’s stepped geometric façade, ribbed brickwork and arched vaulting that has inspired Flow.
With their matte porcelain exterior and glazed interior, the beautifully crafted round and teardrop shaped vases, may look simple and understated, but they come to life when light and shadows hit their rippled surface.
ArchitectMade products, whether ceramics such as these, their adorable wooden figures or their soft and elegant textiles, are always thoughtfully produced and made to the highest quality. And I should know, as I had the pleasure of visiting their headquarters back in 2018.
From their dedicated researchers who scour archives to unearth lost drawings from the likes of Finn Juhl and Hans Bølling, to their collaborations with leading contemporary names such as Bjarke Ingels and Lars Beller Fjetland, the exceptional craftspeople they select to work with from around the world and finally their three rounds of quality control; with ArchitectMade, their products are built to last and to by passed on to future generations to come.
