Rosendahl is a source of practical designs that make day-to-day living easier and more elegant. From hand-blown glass and unique designs to innovative accessories for the dining table and the home, to professional kitchen utensils.
Thanks to Rosendahl's product development, their distinctive, stylistically consistent designs can be found in the majority of modern homes.
Rosendahl also promotes well-known design classics. For instance, Rosendahl has taken on the distribution of Kay Bojesen's much-loved toy soldiers, the distinctive teak monkey and the timeless Grand Prix cutlery.
Rosendahl's history is also closely intertwined with Yomin Yamada's Global knives, which Erik Rosendahl introduced to Scandinavia with great success. These professional knives became a best-seller, and today they can be found in many Danish homes and professional kitchens.
Rosendahl is also renowned for its collaboration with art craftswoman Lin Utzon; some of her items include the poetic, stylistically consistent Filigran range and the sculptural Lin Utzon vase created in close collaboration with Erik Rosendahl.
Last but by no means least, Rosendahl has generated enthusiasm for its functional, classic Grand Cru range of tableware, a most attractive blend of Danish and Japanese styling.
In addition, Rosendahl works closely with designer Ole Palsby, whose designs include the aesthetic Rosendahl storage jars with their simple, clean-cut lines. The timeless look of the jars, combined with their multitude of uses, makes them classic items in many homes around the world.
Rosendahl is also famous for its ultra-minimalist Watch range, designed by award-winning Danish designer Flemming Bo Hansen, one of the few Danes to be represented at the Museum of Modern Art. The Watch range is characterised by its simple, clean lines and a harmony of black wristbands and clock faces interacting with matte steel.
With integrity, conscientious use of resources and a sense of accountability to the customer, Ole Palsby has made it his business to bring quality to our everyday lives; to shape the way we do things by bringing the user-friendliness of the professional kitchen into people's kitchens at home. He does this by creating designs that lack nothing, yet incorporate nothing superfluous
To Ole Palsby's mind, products must not divert attention away from food and drink; instead, they should accentuate the visual appearance, aroma and form of the food. Food preparation, meals and meal table are central for Ole Palsby as he designs items for us.
Ole Palsby finds much of his inspiration in Japan and the Zen philosophy, which has influenced his basic principles of design: "Our overall experience is a synergy of all our senses — sight, taste, smell, hearing and touch," and this has pointed the way to his design goal: "To shape kitchen utensils and tableware so that they become an integral part of food preparation and mealtimes."
Ole Palsby has designed Rosendahl's storage jars. The underlying concept was to give the jars a timeless look. The stoppers have the simple, arched handle that is so characteristic of many of Ole Palsby's designs. The shape portrays the function; the stopper is removed by a simple vertical movement.View other products by Ole Palsby
