Lucie Kaas has released a ceramic version of the popular pattern. The Arne Clausen collection is now available for purchase.
The name Arne Clausen might not sound familiar to many people,
nevertheless, the Norwegian artist had a very influential role in one of
Scandinavia's biggest design successes in the 1960's. Arne Clausen was
employed as a decorator at the Norwegian factory Cathrineholm and he is
behind the world famous "lotus" pattern which adorned many of the most
popular products from Cathrineholm. Often you'll see Grete Prytz Kittelsen attributed incorrectly as the designer. Other than being used to decorate
products from Cathrineholm the "lotus" pattern also found its way to
Denmark where it was used to decorate porcelain items from Lyngby
Porcelæn. The iconic "lotus" pattern is by many considered one of the
most powerful examples of timeless Scandinavian design.
collaboration with Arne Clausen's family Lucie Kaas resurrects an old favourite.
The collection can be found online here. Personally I wish they'd brought back some of the rarer colour sets like blue on blue or white on orange. Still, we'll always have the avocado green... ugh!
