words Johanna Agerman
Salt and pepper shakers that look like buoys, a schnapps lighthouse and a bowl in the shape of a paper boat with serving utensils as oars. The Boatlife collection for Swedish tableware manufacturer Sagaform is cheesy as hell and unlike anything that Form Us With love has done before but we like it.
The office of Stockholm-based design trio Form Us With Love is a study in white and grey, the designers themselves dressed in black. The studio’s output to date is a restrained ensemble of pieces like Cord lamp for Design House Stockholm and the Highway chair in steel and felt for Mitab, so how come it went all kitsch for its first crockery collection? “We felt like having some fun,” says studio member Petrus Palmér.
The collection also includes beer and schnapps glasses and a bowl in the shape of a folded paper hat.
