After living in Copenhagen for already one year, it’s time to let my friends in Amsterdam enjoy the beauty and fun of Scandinavian products too. I will open a temporary shop in the city center of Amsterdam were we will present all handmade, Scandinavian products.
I have met very interesting craftsmen who work with textile, wood, ceramic, paper, organic cotton, alpaca wool and liquorice… Together with my bestie Madri, I will sell these products at the first floor of the Lomography Gallery Store at the ’9 straatjes’ in Amsterdam. We’re only there for one month so please join us and like our Facebook page Copenhagen First to stay updated about the products we will sell and the events & workshops you can join soon!
An impression of the products:
The Organic Company is a Danish design company which creates meaningful and tasteful home accessories from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. www.theorganiccompany.dk
Morten Høegh selects the local Nordic wood himself, and follows it the whole process from the woodyard through his workshop to the kitchen counter. This is also why every board bears the inscription of its geographical origin underneath the Sløjd logo. www.slojd.org

Right: Trine Weng designs ceramic with a modern, Scandinavian approach; ”It is not an obstacle but a path to innovation that benefits the consumer in the form of new exciting and functional products.” www.casalinga.dk
