Porcelain tableware based on drawings by Arne Jacobsen


Danish studio Design Letters & Friends has created a collection of porcelain tableware Flowers by AJ. The items of the series — mugs and plates — are decorated with drawings by the cult designer Arne Jacobsen, which have never been released until now.

The history of the Danish studio Design Letters & Friends began in 2009 with the revival of a corporate font that Arne Jacobsen had developed specifically for his project of the town hall of Aarhus in 1937. The designers decided to create home accessories and items (china, textiles, office supplies, etc.) with the same letters and numbers. However, the designers of the studio are not standing still, and this time they decided to resurrect from the non-existence one of Jacobsen’s sketches of the 40s — a pattern with wild anemones. Especially for this pattern they developed Flowers by AJ collection of tableware made of Chinese bone china.

The series includes a tea cup and beverage mug, a dessert plate and a serving plate. The objects can be used both for their direct purpose for decorating the dining table, and as decorative accessories in the interior. The Flowers by AJ collection objects can also be combined with other products of the studio — the same crockery with the signature font of Arne Jacobsen.
