New Nordic Knit

The collection New Nordic Knit consists of a blanket called Grey Sweater and two cushions: Grey Sweater and Yellow Sweater. All the products are knitted in Denmark of 100% merino wool and based on traditional Norwegian knitting patterns. The selected patterns get a new lease on life with new colours and sizes, which give them an updated and refreshing expression. The grey and yellow complement each other beautifully, and the effect is enhanced by the oversize motifs. Jensen and Jessen explain that they use the process to make the patterns their own. The New Nordic Knit collection is a functional and elegant series of textile home accessories with clear Scandinavian tones in both expression and execution.

Sen-Sen

Sen-Sen. Est. 2000

Trine Runge Jessen b.1973, textile designer and Helene Jensen b.1966, textile designer.

Helene Jensen and Trine Runge Jessen, who make up the design duo Sen-Sen, both graduated from the Kolding School of Design, the Textile Line, respectively in 1997 and 1999. They founded Sen-Sen in 2000 because they felt that the market for textile home accessories could use a breath of fresh air. The name Sen-Sen is not, as one might expect, associated with Eastern mystique. In fact it is simply the last syllable on the two makers’ surnames: JenSEN and JesSEN. The duo have previously been part of Danish Crafts Collection CC16.

The two women both want to create products that stand out and have a bit of an edge. In their work they twist and rethink recognizable elements and patterns in an effort to create new expressions. Jensen and Jessen draw inspiration from everyday life and put a high priority on making the working process fun and enjoyable. They mainly work with wool and silk, and all their textiles are produced on knitting machines in Denmark.
