Anja Van Herle Portraits & Paintings

A sudden flash of bright, vivid eyes. A toss of exquisitely styled hair. These are timeless moments when we encounter high fashion, and artist Anja has caught them all and more in her truly remarkable new body of work mixing both classical and contemporary ideas of fashion. Anja specializes in large-scale portraiture featuring beautiful, expressive women, and her images have the power of enticing viewers and leading them to interpret a variety of meanings in each expression.

Where simplicity meets glam

Reiko Kaneko created this fantastic lamp inspired by a hanging disco ball reflecting and redirecting the early morning sunshine inside, Dapple light tries to recreate this impact.

Crafted in London, skilled carpenters worked to emphasise the inherent beauty of the Ovangkol hardwood. The broad and weighty tabletop is lifted by, and stands out against the delicate appearance of the legs.
Cast in crystal clear resin, the elegant legs create an illusion of a table afloat.

A classic tea set with a contemporary twist: lipstick marks are turned into a cheeky decorative feature.
Lift the teacup to find a platinum teacup stain on the saucer as an added surprise!
You can shop the cups at Reiko Kaneko webshop here

Torun – The Swedish Queen of Silversmiths

Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe (1927-2004) is the most internationally celebrated silversmith of the post war period. Using assymetric, fluid forms in silver combined with semi-precious stones and pebbles, she created jewellery that strongly broke with tradition. Her early hand-made jewellery from the 1950’s became an instant success in Paris where she lived at the time. She earned clients such as Pablo Picasso, Brigitte Bardot, Ingrid Bergman and Billie Holiday, who all were fascinated by her innovative designs of sculptural forms tracing the contours of the wearer’s body.

In the mid 1950’s she started a long relationship with the Danish company Georg Jensen. At Jensen she was involved with a company who’s founder had as great a passion for silver as she herself had. Like her, Georg Jensen, originally created his jewellery for people who valued the beauty and the design of a handcrafted objects more than a luxurious material. Torun used rock crystal, moonstone and quartz instead of more valuable stones. Torun designed Jensens first wrist watch in 1962. This today world famous model was the first of it’s kind, a simple, open-sided wrist watch with a numberless mirror dial, stripped of all but the bare essentials.
During the sixties, Torun lived in Biot, France. She installed her workshop in the family villa and employed several assistants. During these years she achieved many orders and commissions, and was extremely productive. Many young Swedish silversmiths came to Biot to work with Torun, among them Urban Bohlin and Bengt Liljedahl. Her home was also a meeting point for contemporary artists, intellectuals and jazz musicians.

In 1978 Torun set up a new workshop in Indonesia. There, she undertook a wide range of projects including textiles, baskets and lamps, while continuing to create jewellery. She lived in Jakarta until her death. She received numerous design awards during her long career and exhibited all over the world for over 50 years.
