Mug with pattern by Catharina Kippel, based on illustrations by Elsa Beskow.
The endearing stories by the children’s book author and illustrator Elsa Beskow have been
interpreted by Catharina Kippel, a designer who has worked with Design House Stockholm
right from the beginning. Using visual quotations from Elsa Beskow’s works Catharina
stresses the humour with which Elsa so typically portrays people and nature.

Design House Stockholm (DHS) is a publisher of design, working in the same way with designers that
publishing houses work with authors. Rather than selecting a designer to make a specific product,
all designers are invited to bring their personal ideas. Some of these ideas are selected for
development and production. DHS looks for products that add something new to their genre. Products
with personality and character. Their ambition is to gather a collection of the very best Scandinavian
design today. The term ‘Scandinavian’ refers to a philosophic and aesthetic perspective, rather than
geography and nationality: they have French, German, Australian, American and Chilean designers in their network.
The result is a collection of design classics with timeless appeal and qualities that outlives temporary trends.
