A look Inside the Sukima Studio

I’ll be honest here and admit I don’t know an awful lot about the Sukima Studio in Denmark, but I enjoyed these photos of their working space all the same so I’ve brought them across as a little nod of appreciation to their craft. What I do know is that their small team dedicates itself to creating porcelain objects by hand in a beautiful rustic style, so we’re in for a bit of a visual treat here with this great photography series. This project highlights …

Hans J. Wegner, Danish Furniture Designer

Set of Imagery from Sigurd Grunberger

I’ve not crossed the path of Copenhagen based photographer Sigurd Grunbeger before, perhaps this is because he covers mostly womenswear, but I really enjoyed browsing his portfolio this morning. He’s put together a neat little series of images for Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau which uphold quite a rugged outlook on men’s style, recently featured in Euroman Magazine. I felt they would slot quite comfortably into …
