Figura is the name of Stelton’s new Christmas collection designed by architect and graphic designer Louise Helmersen.

Paper is Louise’s favourite material which is perfectly clear when you look at the Figura series. Metal is Stelton’s preferred material which is also obvious, when you see the ornaments. Figura is a good match where 1+1 is much more than 2. Take graphic, straight lines, Christmas joy and two times understanding of materials and you get a series of simple pictogram-like Christmas ornaments that look beautiful on the tree, in the window and at all other places, where you decorate your home. It looks light, Nordic and almost archetypical.

The series consists of classic Christmas symbols: heart, star, angel and Christmas tree. The ornaments come in two sizes and in white, black and brass colour.

Louise describes the work with Figura, first, as playing with pencil drawings, then experimenting and testing whether paper strips could transmit the lightness of the pencil lines into the minimalist expression she was looking for. Finally, she turned her paper works over to the experienced development team at Stelton who transformed Louise’s paper ornaments to metal objects. It looks simple, but the process has been long, two years precisely. That is how long it takes when details must be cared for, and there must be a certain level of care that goes into it at every stage, creating a product that should become a potential new Christmas classic.

Louise Helmersen works partly as a graphic designer and partly as a designer of mobiles together with her husband. Their base is on the Danish island of Funen, where Hans Christian Andersen, the world-famous fairytale writer centuries ago also experimented with paper cuttings – a perhaps less known creative talent he also had. Possibly, the soft landscapes of the island inspire artists and give them the patience which is needed for paper cuttings?

Christmas is the busiest time of year for Louise and her preferred season. This is also the case in her private home, where Christmas is the highlight of the year, filled with traditions and rituals but also with room for new things and spontaneity - and even though Louise works with paper every day in her studio there are also cuttings and paste all over at home.

The couple’s three daughters decorate the Christmas tree, and every year supplementary ornaments, both homemade and professional ornaments made by Louise’s experienced hands, are added to their collection. This year, both large and small Figura angles and hearts from Stelton will hang on the tree together with all the old, well-known and loved ornaments and baubles.
