The Mormor series is made for the modern kitchen and dining table using ceramics as its point of departure, and it definitely applies to the traditional kitchen. Not only that, structures and patterns along with familiar kitchen items such as cloths and dishcloths are contained in the visual expression of this series.
The inspiration is textiles and the things that we are accustomed to surrounding ourselves with when in the kitchen. With this in mind, Gry Fager has incorporated the enjoyment of food and the table as a focal point in which time and togetherness are important qualities.
Normann Copenhagen spotted Gry Fager’s design even before she completed her training at the Danish Design School in 2008. With the introduction of the Mormor series it is the first time that Gry Fager has had her designs put into production.
Gry says:”I really like combining different things. What motivates me is developing good ideas for everyday things which people enjoy using and having in their homes. To me the aesthetic is a matter of course and its function is a must. With Mormor, the kitchen is the place where everything starts, the central nervous system of the house where people all gather. I have been inspired by the atmosphere and the character of the kitchen, particularly older kitchens from my grandmother’s time and I have transferred the kitchen clichés into a modern context.”
Mormor has a simple idiom which addresses function and underlying inspiration. It consists of a humorous and functional series for breakfast, lunch or for a picnic.
