Travel - Light Companion

The travel blanket collection is produced in Florence, Italy where Catharina Mende studied the arts and explored the cultural diversity of Tuscany. While traveling, the modern nomad needs a true friend and companion, giving a sense of comfort and warmth. The travel blankets belong in every travel bag, in every car or on a balmy summer night, on every chair.

Fashion - LC x The Scarves

The edition “Light Companion x The Scarves” was inspired by the Bauhaus movement as well as the belief in functionality, clear lines, shapes, and materials. Organic, circular segments and metallic materials are the basis for the design of these fashion crossover products for modern nomad. The result is a mix of lightness paired with strong organic shapes - a metallic sheen on the elegant drape of silk and extra fine merino. The color scheme is simple and straightforward. Less is more – colors and shapes come together in reduced harmony.

Living - Deep Splendor

The "Deep Splendor“ collection mirrors the moment of renewal between rain and sunshine. Produced in Scotland, these pieces found their inspiration in the Highlands, where the light seems to dictate all, where each moment gleams in varying colors and the same landscape continually evolves. Red and yellow, green, the flowering heather and the gray of the crags are the colors that come together.

The collection encompasses throws and bed blankets of merino

Living - Geometric Gaze

Bauhaus architecture and a different way of seeing things – the gaze, which divides space into planes – are the inspirational source for the “Geometric Gaze” collection. Geometry and material of merino and kaschmir work together to achieve spatial depth. The resulting planes reflect the light, while colors and opposing woven structure create movement.

Living - Spotted & Beyond

The "Spotted & Beyond“ encompasses mohair and merino plaids.

The woven mohair plaids convey somewhere far-off in a diffuse distance, a place beyond details. As if squinting into the horizon, shapes and colors appear in a certain light, only to disappear in the blink of an eye. The fluid transitions and natural sheen of the monochromatic structures and color planes heighten this sense of a dreamy gaze into somewhere far, far away.

The jacquard knit of the merino plaids allows for motifs with clear contours and details. An object, the detail of an image or a play of light – each can conjure up an unexpected interpretation … like the pattern of the turtle’s shell.

The collection encompasses throws, baby blankets and cushions.
