Fritz Hansen’s new trio of organisers makes clutter a thing of the past.
Originally designed for an exhibition as large, outdoor objects
in steel, Buckets is reinterpreted as a series of scaled-down vessels suitable for organising writing implements. Designed to be used together, the set comprises three bucket-shaped penholder pots, each with distinctive handles. The tray beneath can be used alone to keep keys, paperclips or other small desk essentials within easy reach, and always in the same place.
As a designer, Mia Lagerman views her constant development - from the creation of the idea, through to the production and the final result - as a journey towards achieving the best results, and where dialogue with collaborators and the development of new methods are a vital part of the process, always with the end-user in mind.
Mia's designs are based on a Scandinavian aesthetic simplicity, as well as an understanding of materials and production. This applies to both mass production and smaller editions.
“The innovative products are a reflection of my need to try out different kinds of materials and craftsmanship.
It’s OK for design to be tongue in cheek, but it must still have the ability to be taken seriously. It’s about creating a surprise, something unexpected. It’s about immersing yourself, seeking perfection with an open mind, quality and not least, stirring people’s emotions.”
