INSPIRED BY LIFE

Order in chaos

Pernille love to visit the lively Bangkok. Here she finds her inspiration for the twisted jewellery in the collection.

”It may sound a bit odd, but the designs of suspension bridges and power poles have always fascinated me with their many wires and lines that come across as a confused mass in perfect order. The combination of lightness and extreme complexity gives me butterflies in my stomach.”

 

Fascinating changeability

Iceland’s changeability, the infinite contrasts and the strong, changing colours made a big impression on Pernille.

”Iceland is a place like no other, and this island in the high north has made a tremendous impression on me. I get inspired by the unspoiled and raw nature as well as the breath-taking Icelandic landscape with its great contrasts. My encounter with Iceland has freed my mind and left me with a particular lightness in my body. This quite unusual sensation is something I carry with me and use in my design work.”

 

 

Contrasts and architectural forms

One of Pernille’s childhood friends is a photographer, who many years ago took a beautiful picture of part of the government building in Berlin. That photo has always had a special place in Pernille’s heart, and she has kept it ever since. Every time she’s in Berlin, she makes time to visit the particular spot where the photo was taken. The entire area around the government building and the contrast between the raw concrete, glass and soft architectural shapes fascinate her greatly. And there are indeed obvious parallels between the picture from Berlin and many of the Coin jewellery in the collection. 

Pernille describes it like this: ”I’m quite drawn to shapes in architecture, and my attention most often falls on buildings that appear raw and in decay rather than the more obviously beautiful buildings. Urbanity, buildings and people with contrasts fascinate me.”

 

 

Beautiful details and special atmosphere 

On another of Pernille’s many journeys to Bangkok she visited the old royal castle, Grand Palace, that offers amazingly beautiful details and a special mood. Some elderly women were sitting by the castle, working on restoring some large and colourful pieces of mosaic. 

These many colourful impressions have since inspired Pernille towards new additions for her collection. Pernille believes that life should be lived and experienced, and her desire to explore and play with new shapes and colours is insatiable. Fortunately... Because as long as the passion burns, the inspiration lives.
