Republic of Fritz Hansen translates its know-how in furniture into an accessories line this year, coming up with a series of 12 designs – unsurprisingly titled “Objects” – that looks set to spruce up your living space effortlessly.

To create the collection, the Danish company looked back at their archive of rich heritage, and with the help of fellow Danish and international contemporary designers, reinterpreted ordinary decoratives into works of art. For example, a mirror is given an oily rainbow-like finish, while the “Ikebana” vase is a bowl-like glass vase, only with a brass structure within that holds the flowers. There are also candleholders of various sizes and textile creations like cushions and throws in neutral palettes, so there’s something for every nook and cranny of your home.

“Creating Objects, we looked back into our rich heritage, and we also reached out to Danish and international contemporary designers in order to continue our history. This has resulted in a family of items that can make you stop and think – and hopefully capture your fascination,’ explains Christoffer Back, director of Fritz Hansen “Objects”. “They are all items that will contribute to the ambiance of your home by their mere presence alone.” He then confirmed that the current 12-piece collection will be added to over time.

Founded by cabinetmaker Fritz Hansen in Copenhagen in 1872, the long-standing furniture company became the hallmark of “Scandinavian Style” with iconic pieces such as the “Drop” chair and “Ant” chair by renowned designer Arne Jacobsen.
