Beautiful and handmade
Focus on design and craftmanship
The beautiful Hammershøi range features decorative furrows, giving it a classic look and allowing the glaze to flow elegantly and slightly transparently across the vivid ceramics. The subtle furrows also have a functional advantage and make the cups good to hold and the storage jars easy to open.
The ceramic products are lifted a trifle from the table so they are stable and have a light hovering elegance, and in combination with the natural colours, the individual elements turn into small design wonders in themselves. By the way, did you know that the cups from the Hammershøi range are thermal cups? This means that they keep your drinks warm without you burning your fingers.
With the Hammershøi tableware, Kähler introduces glass as a material, which together with the ceramic and oak elements creates a complete Nordic look. The heaviness of the ceramic is complemented by the thin glass, and together with the raw look of the oak, a tie is formed between the inspiring raw materials of Scandinavian nature.
It is the old artist Svend Hammershøi's works from the beginning of the 20th century that have inspired the designer Hans-Christian Bauer to come up with the design of the Hammershøi range. Svend Hammershøi was attached to Kähler's old workshop in Næstved for many years and was of great importance to Kähler's development.
"It has been very fascinating to work with Hammershøi's old designs and techniques. Svend Hammershøi was a prime mover in many areas, and I have taken inspiration from his different designs and combined them in many different ways. If I got stuck in the process with the tableware, I would go back and find new inspiration from historical pictures of his works," says Hans-Christian Bauer about his work with the Hammershøi range.
