RE-DUCE, RE-THINK, RE-CRAFT



Crafts Collection is marketed by Danish Crafts – an independent institution under the Danish Ministry of Culture. Danish Crafts creates the framework for the overall marketing whereas the individual designer-maker takes care of the entire process from production to invoicing and the final delivery. We love the Elephant and Dog figures, made of road barrier bars. The bars all have the same measurement with a width of 7.5 cm, and all the shapes are based on this format. These wooden toys are inspired by old-fashioned toys which were mostly made of wood, and which left more to the user’s imagination than modern-day toys. Victoria’s great grandfather made his own toys, and this is something that is often on her mind as she creates new toys. The red and white objects are based on the same template but have different colour patterns.
