I found inspiration in Swedish cookbooks. In them life is always carefree and absolutely beautiful. Inspired by the books, I created a bain-marie. It is a cooking utensil elegant enough to also be used at the table. It was designed with two goals in mind: to make preparing food a more relaxed experience and to have an object to behold. The prototype was created at KAHLA, as a part of Kahla-Kreativ workshop.

Valo2014 is an electric alternative for candles and tea-lights. This mood light is suitable for table settings, bedside tables and windowsills. Unlike it’s counterparts that use fire as their light source, Valo2014 is not a fire hazard, and does not emit noxious particles. This electric substitute does not imitate traditional candles, but proudly has it’s own appearance. The mood of the light is easily changed by using differently coloured and shaped glass shades. To save energy, Valo2014 uses leds as it’s light source.
