Jonas Bohlin Collection
Together, the three ranges of tableware – Qvint, Corona and Carisma – make up the Jonas Bohlin Collection. Use them separately or together to create the perfect setting for parties and everyday dining.
Carisma – a new addition to the Rörstrand range
Jonas Bohlin is a designer and artist. He made his breakthrough with his degree project in 1981 – an installation that included both ballet shoes and his famous Concrete chair. Since then, Concrete has become a highly sought-after collector’s item. In the intervening years, Jonas has created some truly remarkable items of furniture, lamps, rugs and interior designs, all of them sharing the hallmarks that are typical of his style – a feel for unconventional originality, elegance and precision.
“A gift – just like food, friends and life itself.”
That’s how Jonas Bohlin – one of Sweden’s most interesting and talked-about contemporary designers – chooses to describe his latest tableware design, Carisma for Rörstrand.
With its “hand-drawn” watercolour-effect blue lines, Carisma exudes restrained elegance and yet is full of life. The word itself means “grace”, but also signifies a “special personal charm”. That is exactly how all three tableware services that Jonas has created for Rörstrand are designed to be used: to create an individual table setting – with charisma.
Jonas Bohlin’s first dinner service for Rörstrand – Qvint – was well received and attracted a lot of attention. Qvint is tableware with a human touch – a flower in silver and blue that symbolises humankind, the moon and the number five.
Qvint was later joined by Corona – an expression of elegance with a discreetly stylish, sophisticated silver rim inspired by a phenomenon of nature that serves as a symbol for the moon, metal and the circle.
Carisma consists of 7 pieces and is based on forms already seen in Qvint and Corona. New to Carisma, however, are the generous 5-litre bowl and an updated version of the 35 cl mug. This mug is also being launched with Qvint and Corona décor.
Together, the three ranges of tableware – Qvint, Corona and Carisma – make up the Jonas Bohlin Collection. Use them separately or together to create the perfect setting for parties and everyday dining alike – capture the different moods of winter, spring, summer and autumn – and express your own individuality and personality to the full. Combine them carefully in organised fashion, mix and match with wild abandon, or not at all.
Use them as you wish – it’s simply a matter of taste!
