A new collectors book was launched recently- "Collectables, 20th Century Classics" published by New Holland publishing (UK) and kirkmodern are chuffed that we were asked to contribute on the Scandinavian entries and in particular the Upsala-Ekeby ceramic pages. The book is a fantastic source of information on classic design featuring Aalto, Wegner, Eames, Panton and Juhl, and is essential for anyone interested in style design or interiors. To kick off 2012 kirkmodern will be showing at the Dublin Brocante on Sunday 15th January and we will give away a copy of this new book to the first person to identify which Upsala-Ekeby designer piece we had featured in the book. Simples!
