Bølgen by MAPT

As you probably know I’m a sucker for all things Scandinavian, and this is no exception. I just wish it had been open when I was in Oslo a few months ago. Danish architects, MAPT, have created a waterside restaurant which features a wave of undulating timber around the facade of the building. The restaurant was completed earlier this year before the partners of MAPT decided to split into two practices; Lendager Arkitekter and Arcgency.  Images: Dezeen

V&A Christmas Tree by Studio Roso

V&A Christmas Tree by Studio Roso

Studio Roso, a creative partnership between Danish designers Sophie Nielsen and Rolf Knudsen, have created this christmas tree for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The handmade tree has been created with 1500 individual strands of elastic cord to create the form of a 4 metre high traditional christmas tree. Amongst these cords are various ‘christmas ornaments’ designed to mimic the crystalline structure of snowflakes and icicles.      Images: Studio Roso
