KNOWN FOR HER TOPPLING BAUBLE-LIKE TOWERS AND PERFECTLY PIGMENTED GLASS OBJETS, COPENHAGEN-BASED ARTIST HELLE MARDAHL DESIGNS SCULPTURAL WORKS OF ART RENDERED IN MOUTH-BLOWN GLASS. HER CREATIONS LOOK GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT THANKS TO THEIR ORGANIC SHAPES AND HAPPY HUES. BUT THESE FRAGILE WORKS OF ART DEFINE THE DELICATE CONTRAST THAT EXISTS BETWEEN HARD MATERIALS AND SOFT SILHOUETTES.

What we love most about these unique beauties is that each and every design and collection is made entirely by hand. And why the candy-colored palette you ask? Mardahl finds inspiration through her favorite sweets shops when casting color on her glass works, which range from globe pendants to table lamps, vases and bowls. Every piece is one-of-a-kind and signed by Mardahl herself.

THE BON BON FURNITURE

IN ADDITION TO HER CANDY UNIVERSE OF LIGHTING AND ACCESSORIES, MARDAHL PUTS FORTH A RAINBOW-SPECTRUM COLLECTION OF HANDMADE FURNITURE. FEATURING SHARP LINES AND MODERN EDGES, THE COLLECTION OF TABLES AND CHAIRS IS AN ARTFULLY BALANCED CONTRAST TO THE SOFT, FREE-FLOWING SHAPES OF THE ARTIST’S GLASS WORK.

“WHEN I DESIGN, I CHERISH WORKING CLOSELY WITH TALENTED CRAFTSMEN WHO UNDERSTAND MY STORYTELLING AND AESTHETICS. FURTHERMORE, I VALUE QUALITY AT ITS VERY BEST.”
