Design: Andreas Engesvik
The elegant hand-drawn design makes ENGESVIK by hand a unique damask placemat, where craftsmanship is the driving force.
Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik is the man behind the design. The hand-drawn pattern celebrates the idea of the simple life and was created in close collaboration with Georg Jensen Damask. The lines are woven into the placemat with thread that is a slightly lighter shade than the blue background colour. The weaving itself is a complicated affair, as the threads must follow the uneven lines created by the pressure on the pencil. The result is a pattern of graphical ease and intrinsic humanism.
The placemat is given an exclusive and dramatic expression by Engesvik’s lines against the Blue Abyss colour, where craftsmanship and hand drawing join forces in the distinguished dark blue colour tones. Napkins in contrasting colour accentuate the personal expression. These Damask place mats have been treated with a finish that protects it from dirt and stains. Read more about the repellent finish
