ABOUT COW ØN THE ICE
Swedes don’t say “no worries” if everything is all right… they tell you there is “no cow on the ice.” (Ingen ko på isen).
Hi! My name is Eva and I'm a multi-award-losing designer, caffeine-dependent life form, papercut survivor and dog enthusiast.
COW ØN THE ICE is a genuine, independent project build around a fascination with modernism, Scandinavian design, simplicity, quality and sustainability.
01 What do you find here?
Affordable high-end design.
Anti-ordinary, thoughtfully crafted objects aligned with Dieter Rams' Principles for Good Design.
02 The big "WHY"
Back in the late 1970s, Dieter Rams (a German industrial designer) was becoming increasingly concerned by the state of the world around him — “an impenetrable confusion of forms, colours and noises.” After almost 50 years I am concerned about the same thing.
As a remedy to fast, thoughtless consumption of goods and the ugliness of massive production I would like to offer a carefully curated collection of sophisticated objects that bring joy and make everyday life truly exceptional.
You can find our micro store in FarGo Village in Coventry. Container 8 (stripey one).
Pop in. I’m so looking forward to seeing you!
