Norsebox is a quarterly subscription box that brings handpicked Scandinavian-influenced household wares made by known designers. The subscription costs $54 per quarter + $15 shipping US ($32 to Canada and $60 to the UK), and each box follows a seasonal theme with the idea that the “boxes will progress around the home to give each room a fresh, Scandinavian update”. You’ll get 1-5 lifestyle and home goods that are valued for more than $70.
Everything in my Spring 2017 Norsebox!
Design Letters Weekly Planner ($15) This weekly to do pad is a straight up homage to Jacobsen’s typography (which is noted on every page).
Making use of simplicity and timeless design, SILENT keeps the vase’s shape firmly in focus. Produced with 100% handmade and mouth blown glass, this high quality accessory comes in various colours that can be mixed to create new displays whether in the home or office.
Andreas Engesvik on the design: “Silent is about reducing a vase to it’s most simple expression. It is the shape of the vase that is in focus and adds character to the vase. The serene design gives you a timeless vase – that is 100% hand made.”
I think there’s a multitude of ways a vase can be reduced to its simplest expression but this interpretation is a winner.
I loved this quarter of Norsebox! I thought the two subthemes were great and I particularly loved the mini excursion into Jacobsen’s design. Plus, Norsebox finally got out of the kitchen and moved on to a different room. I think this subscription is perfect quarterly as it really allows the curators to be super thoughtful with their selections. I put all the items into use right away – and began to long immediately for SOMMAR!
