Jansen+co’s Dutch table top design I’ve featured some of this collection previously at Heart Home magazine but never realised how new the company was. There is something iconic about the mugs for a range that has only been around since 2010. I was totally fooled. Jansen+co is a contemporary, vivid and original Dutch table top design company based in Amsterdam. Founded by Anouk Jansen and Harm Magis in 2006. “For me the small things in life do matter. Home made cooking, having a good freshly brewed coffee, spending time at my dinner table with friends and family, seeing art, smelling fresh vegetables or flowers, I’m able to see and taste colours in everything! That’s what makes me happy and enables me to design products.” says Anouk Jansen. As creative director Anouk is in charge of the Jansen+co products, from the design development to the look and content of the complete collection. She traveled the world to work with creative minds and to find the right production partners. Jansen+co value quality above all, their products combine the very best of industrial production with hand finishing. They work with socially responsible factories, passionate craftsmen and ethical manufacturing. On a recent trip to Skandium, I picked up a couple of the XL mugs for a morning coffee design fix. If you do want to pick up some Jansen+co, you’ll be pleased to know that Skandium are now the exclusive agents for Jansen+co in the UK and in Ireland so it’s very easy to get some colour into your cupboards. An XL mug is just £11.95. Daniel Having worked in design for the past decade, Daniel started ateliertally.com as a discussion of timeless, modernist product design.
