Modern Miniatures in the D2 magazine



Today the interview was published! I must admit it wasn't in the Moustique magazine, but in the Norwegian financial newspaper Dagens Næringsliv's weekend magazine D2 and the journalist wasn't Secco Line either, but Kristiane Larssen, who was a very nice lady, easy to talk with.
But Karl Edo is an important part of the article.

The article is about the growing interest in modern miniature design. Annina, callsmall and Paris Renfroe have also been interviewed. And Minimii and the Emerson house are mentioned with pictures as well. The article is very nice even if it has some minor faults, like Spook House being a Per Spook shop and that Vitra chairs are 1:16, instead of 1:6. I can't find the article in their online magazine, so I can't add a link to it. Instead I'll post a downsized version of some of the pages here, but I'll remove them if requested by D2, or replace them with a link to the article when it turns up in their online magazine. The photos of my dollshouses are by D2's photographer Ivar Kvaal.

Thanks Evelien, no champagne for me, but celebration of my daughter's birthday instead :-) But I'm sure Karl Edo had a glass (or two)

Congratulations Helene! That is a real honor even more so in not being a miniatures magazine! It gives a much wider viewership.... and maybe some who didn't know about mini blogland will discover it! Your houses are more than deserving of the attention! Karl Edo should be celebrating!

Oh, and Happy Birthday to your daughter! (And you!)

Congratulations! How exciting!! The pictures look great and I would love to read it, please let us know if it turns up online so we can read it. The only words I could make out where your name. What does MINIMODERNISTENE translate to?

Wow Helene, what a nice spread. The newspaper looks like a magazine! Congratz , my dear! It must be a great feeling to be published especially if it is your 1st in a newspaper :). Savour the moment before you become too jaded with even more interviews later :).

I think I finally appreciate what 1:16 is like, Helene because I chanced upon some mini designer chairs. Everything I made for you now looks monstrously big !

Helene, do you have a post on all your mini chairs, Will love to see what's in your collection already :).

Mimmi said...

Gratulerer så mye, Helene! Så kjekt! :-D Skulle ønske jeg kunne lese hele artikkelen, jeg prøvde zoome inn på bildene så godt jeg kunne. Kjekt at du fikk vise frem den utrolig flotte samlingen du har! Er sikker på at artikkelen smitter noen med miniatyr-basillen :-)

Great - I didn't know it was out yet! Shame I can't read it. The photos of your house look great!

Pubdoll said...

Thank you all for your nice comments!
Megan, "Minimodernistene" translates to "The mini modernists" :-)
I will try to translate the article in the Christmas holiday.
