Horn bowls in a smart design
The West Jutland firm Horn goods factory’s vases Anine are nominated for the Formland Design Award – Autumn 2009. Based on kohorn, designer Sara Bech Bruun created a modern design product for the house. Horn goods factory is the only remaining company in Denmark producing handicrafts in kohorn.
The designer has managed to create beauty out of something so simple and natural as a kohorn. We have already seen the material in other functions, from powder horns for drinking cups to the current design. The vases are beautiful and modern with a perfect finish of the form in which the sharp line at the bottom is the icing on the cake, says the nomination committee.
Anine is designed by Sara Bruun Buch, who in October 2008 over the Horn of goods factory, and has since led the production of new design directions with respect for the old crafts. The concept behind Anine is dragging nature into the room with a touch of modernity. The result is decorative objects and vases, and the recommended retail price is from $ 499 to $ 699
