MUNK collective - The new

If you follow me on instagram you might have noticed that these past few days have been filled with inspiration... It all started at Arnhem this last weekend and ended up yesterday, at one of my favorite scandinavian cities Copenhagen, where I was invited to a special press launch from MUNK collective in their HQ presenting their new products. 

Besides their beautiful frame trays and the fact that Hans Peter Munk, the man behind MUNK collective, explored a succesfull interior and furniture store in Copenhagen, I wasn't very familiar with the latest developments of the brand  so I was very happy to be able to discover their beautiful and stylish products including the new products 

Like it just said Hans Peter Munk is the man behind MUNK Collective. He started his career at Muuto and Vipp but in 2012, he opened his MUNK store in Copenhagen. Since Hans Peter always had some designers and architects in his network, it was natural to hear if they had nothing in the drawers, which could be interesting for a small new design company to put into production The first product was the FRAME tray and it was released in three sizes and five different colors. The tray became a hit and after launching more products Hans Peter decided to close the store and focus on MUNK Collective. 

"MUNK collective is a design collective consisting of designers and architects. Hans Peter choses the designers and the designs, and he is therefore the one who choses the direction and the overall aesthetics of the brand.  MUNK collective is not necessarily a Scandinavian brand, and it does not matter whether our designers are from Seoul or Stockholm, Cape Town or Copenhagen. All that matter to us is that we see potential in the designs for our collection and in the designer for our collective."

For the latest four additions of the collection Hans Peter designed two of them. The stunning click lounge and climb. The click lounge chair is a piece of furniture that with a single simple click can be transformed into a lounge sofa and consists of a powder coated steel frame and a cold foam seat upholstered with Kvadrat fabric.

Climb is a shelving system which can be combined in several different ways.  
wall mounted or free standing, climb can be used in endless possible ways as you can let it climb up your wall, position one unit as a bedside table or use it as a small storage and is made of oak- or walnut-veneered board with sticks for stabilizing available in oak, warm grey and burnt umber.

The beautiful Blind lamp (my personal favorite) is designed by designers Anita Johansen and Laura Faurschou. The blind lamp refers to its name blind because of its ability to act as a blind thanks to the adjustable lampshade. choose from three different positions creating lighting for every occasion whether you are working or having dinner at the same table.

The completely silent Time clock is designed by designers Birgitte Due Madsen & Jonas Trampedach. A perforated steel plate was the starting point for the design of time clock. besides giving transparency and character to the wall-mounted clock, the hexagonal pattern gives prominence to the even numbers and allows time to be easily identified. A perfect minimalistic and timeless accessory for the home in my opion and available in redbrown and white.
