Hans Christian Gjedde
The Fluted Contrast mugs from Royal Copenhagen were designed by Danish Industrial and Product designer Hans Christian Gjedde in 2007. He was inspired by the classic fluting on Royal Copenhagen porcelain, and designed a mug with a silicone sleeve which follows the fluting on the mug.
He worked together with Danish engineers Molgard APS who engineered the silicone cover, starting with a CAD model.
Hans Christian Gjedde has run his design studio in the heart of Copenhagen since 2000.
