Right in line with my post about lovely bathroom details last Wednesday, this weekend, I was invited by Ifö on an exciting blogger tour to Copenhagen together with a bunch of other Danish and Swedish interior bloggers. The occasion was that Ifö is launching a new range of toilets and wash basins, named Spira Art, all designed by the very inspiring 85 year-old (!) architect and designer Knud Holscher. It was a very well-planned day, which both included a live-interview with the designer at Galleri A. Petersen (currently showcasing his designs trough the times), a visit to Holscher's design studio and not least a visit to his very inspiring private home. Afterwards, Ifö hosted a dinner at Restaurant Marchal and we stayed the night at legendary Hotel D'Angleterre. An very exciting day in other words :-)

When speaking of bathrooms, it might not exactly be toilets and wash basins that come to your mind as the first thing. Or am I wrong? It might rather be beautiful tiles, faucets and other lovely details that sort of 'make' the bathroom. And according to Knud Holscher that is exactly how it should be: toilets and wash basins should make as little noise as possible in a bathroom, thereby making them timeless and longlasting. I really like that mentality! Then you can focus on all the small and easily replaceable details instead :-) Honestly though, I really like the design of Ifö's new toilets in particular. They are designed so that the surface is as smooth as possible, making them much more easy to clean and gives them this minimalistic appearance that I like. And the product pics above - styled by Lotta Agaton and captured by Pia Ulin - really presents the new range nicely. What do you think?  

Lige i tråd med mit indlæg om lækre badeværelses-detaljer sidste onsdag, var jeg denne weekend (fredag - lørdag) inviteret af Ifö til et spændende bloggerevent i København sammen med en række danske og svenske indretnings-bloggere. Anledningen var, at Ifö netop har lanceret en ny serie af toiletter og håndvaske under navnet Spira Art, designet af den virkelig inspirerende 85-årige (!) arkitekt og designer Knud Holscher. Det var en virkelig spændende tur, som både bød på et live-interview med Knud Holscher på Galleri A. Petersen (som lige nu også viser en spændende udstilling om hans design gennem tiden), et besøg på Knuds tegnestue og ikke mindst et besøg i hans virkeligt smukke, private bolig. Derefter bød Ifö på en lækker middag på Restaurant Marchal og overnatning på legendariske Hotel D'Angleterre. En rigtigt vellykket og spændende program med andre ord :-)

Når man snakker badeværelses-indretning, er det måske ikke lige toiletter og håndvaske, der er det første, man tænker på. Måske snarere lækre fliser, armaturer og andre detaljer, der gør et badeværelse lækkert og personligt at opholde sig i. Men i følge Knud Holscher er det også lige præcis sådan, det skal være: Toiletter og håndvaske skal helst larme så lidt som muligt i et badeværelse, så de dermed bliver tidsløse og kan holde i mange, mange år. Den mentalitet kan jeg rigtig godt lide - og så har man jo derimod frit spillerum på alle de andre detaljer :-) Hånden på hjertet synes jeg dog, Ifö's nye toiletter er ret så pæne, hvis man kan sige det om et toilet? :D De er nemlig designet således, at overfladen er så glat som muligt, så de både er meget nemmere at holde rene og fremstår mere minimalistiske. 

Billederne ovenover er stylet af Lotta Agaton og taget af Pia Ulin, og jeg synes virkelig, de har formået at præsentere den nye serie på bedste vis. Hvad synes I?

All expenses on the blogger tour were covered by Ifö, but opinions and thoughts are completely mine :-)

  1. Wait this was the showcase for the toilets?? This is amazing. I think anyone would want to have this indoor-outdoor bathroom!

    1. It definitely is a gorgeous styling - but it wasn't the showcase for the toilets though :-) It's a setup by Lotta Agaton/Pia Ulin :-)
