A few weeks in the past I embarked on a amazing excursion to Skåne, the southern suggestion of Sweden, following an invitation from the nearby tourism board Pay a visit to Skåne. I was energized due to the fact the only matter I realized about Skåne so much was its biggest town: Malmö. I traveled a several decades ago to uncover the metropolis and its vivid structure scene. This time my mission was similar, however broader. I was heading to take a look at Malmö, Trelleborg and Helsingborg and show up at the new design and style pageant, the Southern Sweden Structure Days.
Minimal did I know how wonderful and picturesque Skåne is. My very first times I put in in the vicinity of Trelleborg, in the southern idea of the location. It is there where by you can really take a look at the southernmost position of Sweden and take in the fresh sea breeze and the green landscape. Basically in this season the landscape is all eco-friendly and yellow with rapeseed fields all to the horizon.
What I beloved about the Trelleborg region was its close proximity to Malmö, and still you felt like really out at the countryside – even although it was a mere 20 minutes drive by car or truck from the metropolis. I have three own highlights from that area: Slättarps Gård, a farm-turned-principle retailer in the midst of fertile fields with a fantastic restaurant the stylish and new Weinbergs Lodge with a wonderful cafe and Axatorpsgården, a dreamy Bed & Breakfast where I was remaining (but I will tell you extra about this 1 is a individual web site article).
Malmö was its brilliant self as regular – this city kind of mixes Swedish and Danish vibes, yet it also feels extremely cosmopolitan. And sunny days are the ideal in city – it is as if everybody is outside taking pleasure in the sunshine and mild temperatures. My mission was to go and take a look at this year’s Southern Sweden Style and design Days, which are scattered all around the city in many destinations. In among I wanted to stop in a person of my favourite minor dining places in city: Noir. And just just after a very good bite & vino, I stopped at Olsson & Gerthel, a shop packed with Scandinavian layout that often can make my coronary heart skip a defeat.
The rest of the working day I spent exploring the innovative scene and layouts from southern Sweden. I liked the colourful and playful types of Swedish Ninja as very well as the trendy outdoor furniture variety of Nola. Speaking of out of doors (and indoor why not): the picket bench by designer Marc Hoogendijk would be surely my selection if I had area!
A different good discovery was the get the job done of younger Swedish Artist Elsa Unnegård. She showcased a stool designed of burnt wooden that appears like driftwood, but is in truth sculpted by her. I observed it extremely sculptural, incredibly artsy – still useful, as you can truly use it as a stool. Also I cherished to see a blend of organic and natural shapes, supplies, hues as opposed to useful, trendy furniture that stems from what they get in touch with ‘technomimicry’, mimicking and seeking inspiration in technical models. I noticed some plant remedies as effectively – of study course. Skandiform showcased the Allé Corner room dividers that are fundamentally wise plant stands to structure spaces with plant divisions.
Also for those people of you wondering of Malmö as a awesome journey spot (and I stimulate you to add it your vacation bucket record): keeping in the Duxiana Lodge is a fantastic solution: you are super central and you will slumber like a child in their remarkable beds!
The last element of my Skåne vacation introduced me to Helsingborg, a 50 minutes push north of Malmö. The city is vivid and has a great shoreline to delight in (windy) walks, sweet coffee areas like the Bruket Kaffebar, amazing restaurants like the Sillen & Makrillen overlooking the Öresund, as very well as a extremely funky resort: the Vault Resort!
But when in Helsingborg, I encourage you to travel out to the encompassing countryside, as the mother nature is stunning and the soil below has a great deal of clay which resulted in a person of Sweden’s oldest and most classic pottery factories: the Wallåkra Stoneware Manufacturing facility. There I experienced the astounding possibility to get again to the potter’s wheel soon after so a lot of years and throw my possess minimal piece of the pretty common Skåne clay. I am curious to see the little bud vase once it is fired and arrives here in Berlin. Near by you can also halt at the ‘Tomatenshus’, a tomato expanding farm, that grows very delightful tomatoes. And yes, I acquired hungry there much too – so just next doorways is the restaurant Miss out on Alice Kroog & Delikatesser and their signature dish is: tomato pie! Indeed, go for it! Oh yes!!
From Helsingborg I stated goodbye to Skåne by using the ferry and placing above to Helsingør in Denmark. But that is another tale to be informed. For now I hope you enjoyed the little tour of Skåne and its vivid spots and structure scene. See you soon at the Axatorpsgården Mattress & Breakfast listed here on the blog site!
