applicata by nordic artisans
talents and traditions
applicata’s new collection is based on the idea of creating “a special gift for a special occasion”. To that end, we have allied ourselves with new, exciting design talents. We have brought new, exclusive materials into play, we’ve ensured everything is produced in Scandinavia.
a special gift for a special occasion
local production We have actively decided that all applicata items should be produced as locally as possible. Reflecting this, everything we make is manufactured at family-owned workshops in Scandinavia â€“ mainly in Denmark.
news artistic nerve and solid materials
introducing AMANDA LILHOLT Amanda has created the Circle Collection: glow, fragrance, balance and solid - produced in solid brass.
â€œIt was important to me that the Circle Collection was created in collaboration with a brand that takes local production, attention to detail and sheer materiality seriously.â€? 8
â€œWith inspiration from the sun and its geometrical shape I created the Circle Collectionâ€? - Amanda Lilholt
brass, sun and glow â€œI am very pleased that applicata saw the potential of the brass series â€“ and the potential in me as a designer. We are excited to be launching the series this spring and to see how people respond to: glow, fragrance, balance and solid. They can be grouped to form a beautifully unified display, but each piece has enough impact to stand entirely on its own.â€?

The Circle collection draws inspiration from the sun and its tightly geometric circle shape. Every element shares the same geometrical point of departure, but the series as a whole encompasses very different modes of expressions, designs and functions that complement each other. The common denominator is the material, brass, which emits a warm glow when touched by light, which is also a reference to the sun. Here in Scandinavia we spend many months of the year plunged into darkness, and the series was designed to provide light and â€œhyggeâ€? during that time.
The Circle Collection is made of solid brass that has been left untreated with no varnish or coating. The idea is that each piece should be allowed to age and patinate naturally, making them even more beautiful over time. The authenticity of natural materials is important to me, and I prefer designs that exude classic beauty so that owners will want to keep their piece for many years to come.
a tribute to wood
introducing PERNILLE SNEDKER Artist Pernille Snedker has created the decorative Box Collection as a tribute to wood.
Inspired by natural phenomenons and traditional craft techniques, artist Pernille Snedker transforms interiors into immersive artworks. 22
Over the past year, we have worked intensively with finding our real core – our main raison d’être. We have made a lot of deliberate choices aimed at a sustainable future. And we have been very selective in our choice of design collaborations and when curating our designs. Very importantly, we have made strong decisions about producing locally and about optimising our packaging, so that the consumer will not only want to keep the product itself, but the box it came in too. We aim to make things that last – hopefully for generations.

introducing STUDIO FEM Sarah Cramer and Anders Engholm from Studio FEM has created the mush Collection. With references to classic oil lamps, mush candleholders add a warm touch and fill the room with cosiness. A modern piece in exclusive materials and beautiful, delicate colors.
â€œThe philosophy of Studio FEM is based on interactions between the designers, their diversity and mixed competences and the thought of design being seen as well as felt. Therefore, the balancing act between functionality and aesthetics is the main focus when we design.â€? 34

applicataâ€™s design DNA is distinctive by taking the vibrant energy, aesthetics and wildness found among new and rising design talents and artists and coupling it with traditional craftsmanship, ensuring that everything is produced at family-owned, Scandinavian workshops. Thatâ€™s how our new collection came into being. And this approach will be an exciting springboard for future design collaborations.
wooden classics and bestsellers 41
applicata has been best known for objects made of solid wood. In our choice of materials for this new collection, it was important for us to bridge the gap between the various materials now in use. Each object is beautiful on its own, but will also complement natural materials such as wood. Ideally, we want our designs to age gracefully, acquiring a patina that accentuates their authenticity and gives them genuine lasting power. The new collection embraces materials such as brass, stained glass and paper â€“ and is supplemented by selected wood items from our existing range.

â€œThe verb blossom also means to begin to flourish and develop...â€?
blossom candleholders available in three sizes: lily, tulip and rose produced in Sweden design by Anders NĂ¸rgaard
“The models: Lily, Tulip and Rose, are different in size and shape and they can be grouped to form a beautiful Blossom family. Choose between colours ranging from pastels to bright colours. Alternatives are untreated oak or oiled oak. The slender lines of Blossom were inspired by candlesticks from the 1950s and 1960s, which were often made out of spare wood left over when the woodturner had finished his chair and table legs. Here, I have also drawn inspiration from the crisp outlines of budding flowers. The colour palette is very wide indeed, ranging from delicate pastels and neutral hues to bright, contemporary colours.” - Anders Nørgaard
