Easter egg-stravaganza from Wiinblad

If you visit the artist Bjørn Wiinblad’s home, “Det Blå Hus” (“The Blue House”), in the spring, it looks almost as stunning outside as inside.

Entirely in the spirit of Wiinblad, the garden is embellished with a sumptuous white magnolia, its heavy flower heads creating a magnificent contrast with the blue woodwork as a living symbol of Wiinblad’s fascination with the blue-and-white colour combination.

The story goes that the Queen of Denmark at that time received an Easter egg every year when she visited Wiinblad to see the magnolia in bloom – and now there is good news for anyone with a penchant for majestic Easter embellishments.

Inspired by Wiinblad’s flower-loving, generous traditions, a new Bonbonnière design and porcelain egg have now been launched, bearing a graphic pattern of holes – just in time for Easter and spring table settings.

For stems, sweets and silk ribbons
Most people associate Wiinblad’s artistic style with his expressive women’s faces, which became his hallmark. As a genuine maximalist, however, Wiinblad packed so much detail into his motifs that there is an extensive array of motifs under the surface just asking to be lifted and used in new ways.

This is particularly true of the stylised flower decorations and cut-outs that comprise the motif on this spring’s new bonbonnière and Easter hanger. These make them much more minimalist than is generally the case in Wiinblad’s designs.

With inspiration from the popular “flower heads” launched by Bjørn Wiinblad Denmark last spring, these porcelain cut-outs are not merely ornamental, but intended to support flower stems, expanding the potential uses of the bonbonnière for everything from marzipan Easter eggs to delicate Easter flowers or succulent green twigs. Not least if the bonbonnière – available in two sizes – is displayed in pairs, adding variety of both height and content.

Versatile for spring
Despite its name – the Easter hanger – the other new product this spring is versatile, drawing on more than the Easter tradition. In the on-trend moss green colour and pure classic white, the hangers can be used as decorative objects hung on twigs, on the window sill or in a bowl on the table whatever the season, and creative souls could also customise the hangers as little “flower balls” by inserting sprigs through the cutouts, in keeping with the bonbonnière.

The Easter hangers come with white silk hangers embellished with Bjørn Wiinblad’s distinctive signature in silver thread, and are also sold in a boxed set of two, which makes them ideal for giving to the hostess or other special friends – entirely in keeping with what Wiinblad himself would have done.
