Simply place one of the 6 different stencils over the frothy milk and sprinkle with cocoa or cinnamon powder to create an eyecatching design. The Stencils can be used on any frothy milk or chocolate drink or even a dessert or to top a cake. Designed by Lone Ørum for Strö Design.

Flaming red anniversary celebration

Designer Harri Koskinen is currently one of Finland’s most international designers. Koskinen has worked at the Iittala glass factory and made several popular objects for them, so he knows their glass inside and out. For the anniversary year, Koskinen has designed a flaming red, mouth-blown, carafe with a capacity of 125 cl. In addition to the normal Iittala stamp the carafes also have The special Anniversary Stamp. Absolutely fab!

UNG 06/07 is an arena for young Swedish designers, highlighting the essence of creative liberty in design. The project aims to increase the knowledge and widen the scope of new, innovative Swedish design, helping it reach new audiences. UNG was initiated by Svensk Form and Form/Design Center in 1998 and is now arranged for the sixth time. The previous exhibitions created quite a stir – both in Sweden and internationally. And many of the past exhibitors are well established within their respective fields today. My favourite this year is Mikael Lings chair Bourgogne. Read more about it at
