    Created in 1952 by Finnish designer Kaj Franck, Teema is the embodiment of Franck's minimalist design ethos. The dinnerware set, which includes platters and lidded casserole dishes, is inspired by the simple forms of the circle, square, and rectangle. Pared down until there is nothing left to pare, the effect is a seemingly effortless statement, providing the ideal backdrop for the food itself. 

    Ironically, the designer almost flunked geometry in school, and instead credited French Cubist artist Georges Braque as one of his greatest influences. Like Braque's painterly geometric forms, Franck's work has a more organic than mathematical feel. The dishes comes in a range of colours and are oven-, dishwasher-, and microwave -safe. Here are some examples:

    Above: Franck was born in 1911, when one's social status could be distinguished by a table setting. Later, he came to be known as the conscience of post-war Finnish design, thanks partly to his push for mass-produced, affordable dinnerware equally suited to informal and formal gatherings. The Mini Serving Set (see Shades of Gray: The New Finnish Basics) consists of a triangle, square, and circle and is available for $50 at Fjorn. Photograph by Suki Vento

    Tiina Hamptons House Blue Teema Glasses | Remodelista

    Above: Teema was designed for the Finnish glass company Iittala, which takes its name from the area in Finland where the factory began in 1881. Franck designed Kartio, a colored glass for Iittala in 1958, which complements Teema well. A set of two 7-ounce Kartio Tumblers is $22 (and available in five colors) at Tiina the Store.

    In addition to receiving a project profile on our site, all 10 winners of the 2014 Remodelista Considered Design Awards will receive a limited-edition Jieldé SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze (a powder-coated finish that was commissioned exclusively for us). We love the industrial chic of the iconic French lamp, and are confident our winners will, too.

    Photography by Emily Johnston Anderson for Remodelista.

    Jielde SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze | 2014 Considered Design Awards | Remodelista

    Above: The Jieldé SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze, on Julie's desk in Mill Valley.

    A bit of history: The first Jieldé lamp was created in 1950 by Jean Louis Domecq, a designer in Lyon, France. Frustrated by the lack of heavy-duty, hardworking task lamps on the market, Domecq set out to design the most functional working lamp in the world. In the end, he created something that was not just functional, but also beautiful. In 2006, Jieldé introduced the Signal collection, including a line of smaller-scaled lamps for the home, in a range of finishes.

    Jielde SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze | 2014 Considered Design Awards | Remodelista

    Above: The Jieldé SI333 Signal Desk Lamp is adjustable at each joint, with a base diameter of about 6 inches and two articulated arms, each about 12 inches long. The size is ideal for a home office or bedside use.

    Jielde SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze | 2014 Considered Design Awards | Remodelista

    Förstberg Arkitektur of Malmo, Sweden, have a way with rough construction materials. In their hands, simple forms, a thoughtful layout, and considered details transform the mundane into architectural poetry. Have a look at a 1,400-square-foot summerhouse that they recently completed.

    Forstberg Arkitektur Sweden | Remodelista

    Above: On a narrow plot of land in Linköping, Sweden, the architects created pure forms by wrapping the elevations (and roofs, too) in raw corrugated aluminium. The two parallel volumes are connected in one place but staggered, creating outdoor spaces both in the front and the back of the building. The front volume holds the bedroom and studio; the recessed one is devoted to kitchen, dining, and living areas. 

    Forstberg Arkitect Bookshelf | Remodelista

    Above: A basic palette of natural and stained plywood and polished concrete floors runs throughout the house. In the studio, the polished concrete floor has been extended along the perimeter to become a bench and shelf.

    Last fall, when I dropped in on Mjölk, my favorite Toronto housewares emporium, owner John Baker invited me upstairs to see the newly renovated flat where he lives with his wife, Juli, and their two daughters. The first thing I noticed were the pale Scandi floors. When I commented on their perfection, John said, "It's much easier than you think to get the look." (He was referring to our post How to Create Scandi Whitewashed Floors, which describes a more complicated route.) Of course I immediately asked John to share his secrets; here's what he told us:

    Mjolk Kitchen | Remodelista

    Above: John and Juli's Toronto kitchen.

    Mjolk Scandi Floor Technique | Remodelista

    Above: "First, we applied a coat of Woca Wood Lye to bleach the boards."

    Mjolk Scandi Floor Technique | Remodelista

    Above: "Next, we applied several coats of white wood soap. You could also coat the floors with a white pigmented oil or clear matte urethane for an even tougher finish. However, the soap treatment is the traditional Scandinavian way and it will develop a beautiful patina with age. We have used this finish on both our cottage and home, and we are really happy with it."

    Mjolk Scandi Floor Technique | Remodelista

    Above: "We used 10-inch wide solid Douglas fir boards from Peerless Forest Products in British Columbia. They're tongue and grooved and also screwed and plugged with matching Doug fir dowels (the boards have to be screwed, otherwise they would begin to bow with age)," John says. "It's not fancy stuff, but it's reasonably priced and we actually like all of the knots. Compared with the prices from Dinesen, the standard bearer, Canadian Douglas fir is cheap, It didn't make sense shipping wood from Denmark, anyway, when we have so much of it here in Canada."

    For another (slightly more involved) technique, see Izabella's post Scandi Whitewashed Floors: Before and After. Also have a look at Dinesen's Custom Floors.

    We're loving the long-overdue redesign of electrical hardware. The latest? The Oon Power Outlet from Los Angeles studio Okum.

    Earlier this the week, we presented the ingredients for the classic Swedish Midsummer table, garlands and schnapps glasses included. At home in the Hamptons, Finnish fashion stylish and shop owner Tiina Laakonen takes her own pattern-filled approach to the holiday. At our request, she set her table a few days in advance of the solstice—it's this Saturday, June 21—and let us in on the plans.

    Photographs by Heikki Aho for Remodelista.

    Tiina Laakonen's Midsummer table for Remodelista

    Above: Tiina adheres to a palette of black, white, and blue in every room in her house—for a tour, go to our Monday post Rhapsody in Blue. So we weren't surprised that she applies the same scheme to her table: "Blue and white," she points out, "are the colors of Finland and our flag." The tablecloth is made of Marimekko yardage in Yhdessa, a patchwork design available from Tiina's Amagansett, NY, shop, Tiina The Store; it provides the backdrop for a playful but cohesive mix of patterns, all from Finland. 

    Tiina Laakonen's Midsummer table for Remodelista

    Above: Tiina uses three different plate and napkin patterns: "By sticking to a simple color palette, you can mix patterns in a free way," she says. "The black and white Marimekko designs are all classics and most have a similar hand-drawn look. The blues add color and keep it all from looking too stark and cold." The black-and-white plates are the Paratiisi pattern from Arabia; the blue and white are Arabia's Valencia pattern (now discontinued); and the black plates are Iittala's Teema design, the subject of this week's Object Lesson.

    Tiina Laakonen's Midsummer table for Remodelista

    Above: The midnight blue Valencia plates and covered bowl were a wedding gift to Tiina and her husband, Jon Rosen, from Tiina's family in Finland. Though production ceased in 2002, the pattern can be sourced on Etsy and eBay. The wine glasses are Essence and the water glasses in blue and gray are Kartio, both from Iittala. Similar Marimekko napkins are available from Marimekko. The flatware is the Lion pattern from Hackman, sold by the Finnish Design Shop. The votives in shades of blue are the Kivi design from Iittala. The pitchers are vintage Finnish.

    Tiina Laakonen's Midsummer table for Remodelista

    Above: The table and bench are from Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek's scrapwood series. Not everyone likes a bench, but I do," says Tiina by way of explaining the table's compromise: a bench on one side and Scandinavian chairs from eBay on the other. Landscape designer Deborah Nevins, a Hamptons neighbor and member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory, supplied the fragrant flowering branches.

    Here's Tiina's Midsummer menu, which is being cooked by her friend Petteri Luoto, a New York-based Finnish artist and chef:
    - Mixed tomatoes with feta, cilantro, and sweet red onion dressing
    - Roasted vegetable trio: zucchini and broccoli with fennel vinaigrette; curry-roasted cauliflower; ad green asparagus, snow peas, and scallions with dill pesto
    - White asparagus with truffled corn sauce
    - Slightly smoked vendace (a freshwater whitefish) with grated golden beets and apples and micro greens
    - Ceviche of cod, avocado chunks, and mama’s cucumbers
    - Roasted whole sea bass with Kalle’s Caviar remoulade
    - Summer potatoes crushed with lemon, brown butter, and grated horseradish
    - Japanese-style spiced ground beef served with fresh cabbage leaves
    - Traditional lamb worschmak from Finland in a crispy crust
    - White chocolate panna cotta with liquorice and fresh berries

    Swedish company Byggfabriken (translation: "Build Factory") has two stores—one in Stockholm and one in Malmo—and produces its own line of retro-styled hardware and fixtures designed to "work in old houses and apartments in Sweden," according to the owners. "Our goal is to create classic fittings that allow homeowners to maintain or restore the original qualities of a home or building during a renovation or restoration."

    N.B. Byggfabriken ships worldwide on orders of more than SEK 1,000 (approximately $150).

    With the summer solstice on the horizon—Saturday is the longest day of the year—Gardenista is prepped to greet the season, flower confetti and grottage (garage guest cottage) at the ready. 

    Here are our favorite posts from this week's Scandi Midsummer issue:

    Danish modular summerhouse | Gardenista

    Above: "It's everyone's fantasy (well, at least it's mine): Buy a piece of land in the mountains, by the sea, or near a lake and build a small cabin," writes Sarah. In Architect Visit, she shows us reasonably priced, modular summerhouses designed by Danish architecture firm Lykke + Nielsen. Lead time: six months.

    Flower confetti | Gardenista

    Above: Do you love to deadhead flowers? Put them to use as Floral Confetti for tabletops and pathways, says Kendra. And don't feel restricted to roses. (These are Bupleurum, a classic bouquet filler.) 

    Path of trees at Harniges Slott near Stockholm | Gardenista

    Do you prefer warm hues or cool colors in the kitchen? We asked a few members of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory for their strategies when it comes to choosing color. 

    Portland, Oregon-based designer Carole Magness of Magness Interiors responded to the question with more questions: "Are we in the woods? At the sea? In the city? Does your kitchen have a nice amount of natural light on its own, or not so much?" Magness then set us straight: "Whether to go with warm tones or cool really depends on the setting." Here are successful kitchens at opposite ends of the color spectrum, plus some paint suggestions for both approaches.

    Cool Tones

    Above: Located in a 1920s house in Portland, Oregon, this kitchen remodel by architect Michael Howells of Howells Architecture + Design in Oregon features a dark blue, white, and black color palette—one that isn't commonly used in kitchens. It works because the bold blue is offset by English scullery details like beadboard that the architect injected, creating an overall look that's cool but far from cold. Photo by Anna M. Campbell

    Blue and White Kitchen by Howells Architecture | Remodelista

    Above: "The kitchen is light and bright and bold, which really helps keep things cheerful in the gray Portland climate," says Howells. For a full tour of the design (including before shots), see Rehab Diaries: An Oregon Kitchen with a Dose of Downton Abbey.  

    On the subject of pale kitchens, Magness notes: "The dark time zone and cold climate in Scandinavia are the very reason so many interiors there are light and clean and bright—white finishes are possibly one of the cleverest ways to keep people upbeat when it gets dark at 3:30 pm in winter." In terms of paint colors, Magness advises: "It's nice to split the difference in a kitchen—so it doesn't feel like a laboratory, but also isn't so busy with color that it doesn't feel as clean as we'd like."

    Warm Tones

    Wood and White Kitchen by Feldman Architecture | Remodelista

    Above: In this project by Jonathan Feldman of Feldman Architecture in San Francisco, the intent was to balance crisp modernism elements with natural materials. Says the architect: "We typically like the primary surfaces (floors, walls, counters, and cabinets) to be subtle, so that they recede and don't call too much attention to themselves." Photo by Paul Dyer

    Wood and White Kitchen by Feldman Architecture | Remodelista

    Above: As for Feldman's color strategy, he says: "We don't think of kitchen colors any differently than we think of colors in general; we almost always prefer to keep them muted. We also worry that our client might get tired of a bold color over time, so we add color with furniture and art." His favorite colors for the kitchen are grays, whites, and light and dark woods that aren't too yellow, orange, or red.

    Neutral Kitchen Palette | Remodelista

    Above: "There should be a combination of cool and warm colors in the kitchen," says Jayne Michaels of NYC-based 2Michaels Design. "A sterile kitchen is lifeless and unappealing, and a cluttered, dark kitchen is unappetizing." Here are two warm shades to consider. Above L: Farrow & Ball Elephant's Breath is a complex gray that Carole Magness used in her own farmhouse kitchen. Above R: Pratt & Lambert's Seed Pearl is a creamy white singled out as a favorite for small kitchens by Lake | Flato Architects.

    Designer Samu-Jussi Koski is refining the new Finnish aesthetic through his fashion label, Samuji, which he launched in Helsinki three years ago. Style in Finland, Samu explains, is informed by its locale, sandwiched between the ultra-minimalist style of Swedish design and the heavily-patterned folk prints of Russia. "This combination is even seen in Marimekko," he says, referring to the textile and design house that has put Finnish fashion on the map since 1951. Samu began his own career at Marimekko, first as an assistant designer and later creative director. "Marimekko has defined fashion in Finland for so long," he says. "There was a time when I was working there that the company was selling 80 percent of its product within Finland: everyone in Helsinki was wearing Marimekko."

    In 2011, Samu ventured out on his own and started with the basics. "I wanted to create a complete wardrobe, and asked all my friends what they would choose if they could only have ten pieces of clothing. Almost every one of them said the same thing: a perfect T-shirt, a pair of jeans, a black dress, the perfect knit. So I began from there." Each collection is divided between classic silhouettes and what Samu calls his "Seasonal" works—in which textures and prints emerge based on a feeling and set of current inspirations. When asked what defines Finnish fashion, he replies, "For us, everything should always be functional. It's about having a love of necessary things."

    Above: Samuji's summer 2014 look book was shot in the atelier and home of Finnish functionalist architect Yrjö Kukkapuro and his wife, graphic designer Isa Kukkapuro-Enbom, built in 1968. Shown here, Samuji's striped Renja Dress. Photograph by Cel Jarvis for Samuji.

    Samu is a fashion designer interested, he says "in almost everything but fashion." He grew up in Muurame, just north of Helsinki, the hometown of architect Alvar Aalto, whose many buildings define the region. Samu's approach is holistic, and he draws much of his inspiration from sculpture, painting, and architecture. "I don't feel very comfortable in the fashion scene as it is now; I'm always eager to collaborate with other worlds." In addition to fashion, Samu has worked on collections for Iittala and Artek, and he is designing a line of Samuji housewares for fall.

    Remodelista: How would you describe your look?
    Samu-Jussi Koski: When I was younger, I went through every possible style and phase, so now I'm over that game. My personal style is quite boring actually—my friends call me "old papa" or "papito" because I remind them of an old Italian grandpa.

    Above: Another view of Yrjö Kukkapuro's atelier. Shown here, the salmon-colored Damira Skirt from Samuji's spring Seasonal Collection. All of Samuji's clothes are designed in Finland and sustainably manufactured in Europe.

    RM: What season works best for you?
    SK: Summer, but in Finland we are so lucky to have all four seasons, so in a way, I love them all. The magnitudes could vary though: I would take a longer summer and the winter could be done in just a month or two.

    RM: What are your summer wardrobe staples?
    SK: I love to change sandals, and prefer them handmade of quality leather. The simpler the better. Lately, I've been into those Jesus-like strap sandals—the ones made by Francesco Da Firenze in Florence, for example. Those are great.

    RM: Wardrobe maintenance tips?
    SK: Get your accessories made from quality leather; that way they'll only get more beautiful as they age and wear out.

    RM: Favorite scent?
    SK: I love all the natural fragrances: tuberose, gardenia, jasmine, lily of the valley. And not just the more feminine fragrances, but masculine, too, like leather and gasoline (both of which are in Santa Maria Novella's Nostalgia cologne). I also carry with me a small bottle of Chanel No. 22; it's an old bottle—Chanel used to be made from non-synthetics.

    Above: A few of Samu's essentials, including his Japanese ceramic good luck owl. Photograph by Alexa Hotz for Remodelista.

    RM: What's in your bag? What do you travel with?
    SK: First there is my little Japanese owl, or fukuro statue. The word fukuro can be written in different kanji characters to give it different meanings, such as "luck comes" or "no hardship or suffering." I carry it as a luck charm with me wherever I go, and I've given these statues to everyone at Samuji. Then there is my pencil and brass sharpener; I always draw with a soft pencil—it should be 2B or 4B, really dark and messy. It's important to me to do the first design sketches by hand.

    RM: Last thing you purchased for your home?
    SK: I've been traveling now for the past year so I haven't been decorating my home that much, but I just bought some weird old flower vases from a flea market to bring back with me.

    RM: What's the first thing on your wish list?
    SK: A summerhouse by a lake.

    RM: Favorite art piece or architectural work of the moment?
    SK: I love the works of Heikki Marila, a Finnish artist. He just had a big exhibition in Helsinki and we had the privilege of staging Samuji's fashion show at the gallery surrounded by Marila's beautiful paintings. In architecture, my all-time favorite is Alvar Aalto.

    RM: What's next? 
    SK: We're getting ready to launch Samuji's first housewares collection in September: mouth-blown glassware, candleholders, printed fabrics, throws—we're looking at all of these traditional art forms in a more modern way.

    Tom Scheerer has been called the Billy Baldwin of our day. A designer with a knack for combining the composed (he trained as an architect at Cooper Union) with the comfy, and the high with the low, he specializes in the "potently atmospheric" writes Mimi Read. Read is the author of Tom Scheerer Decorates, an impressive compendium of 15 years of work that came out last winter. 

    As is almost always the case with decorator's designs, we especially admire Scheerer's own houses in which his practicality and old-fashioned graciousness have been granted free reign. To launch our Life Aquatic issue, Scheerer agreed to give us a tour of his two Harbour Island cottages in the Bahamas that he lovingly overhauled. (And then, like a lot of serial remodelers, he moved on to the next: he's currently building a beach house from the ground up on the Bahamian island of Abaco.)

    Photographs by Francesco Lagnese courtesy of The Vendome Press.

    Above: Dubbed the Cash Box—because it previously belonged to Mary Cash, one of the matriarchs of Harbour Island—Scheerer's 1800 guest house is situated across from an old convent that he revived and turned into his main house. Of the Cash Box he says, "I restored and modernized being mindful of its historic and rustic (but atmospheric) qualities." Both structures are built of coral stone blocks quarried when the basements were excavated. "The original wood parts—roof, floors, ceiling, and interior walls—were made from a native wood known as Abaco pine that admirably survived even though the houses were in ruin."

    Above: The Cash Box entryhall has "a junky white painted table with a convenient drawer," says Scheerer. Hats hang on Thonet hooks and beach towels and mats are at the ready.

    Tom Scheerer cottage Harbour Island Bahamas | Remodelista

    Above: The Cash Box's original kitchen is housed in its own outbuilding.  The kitchen had been modernized in the 1940s," says Scheerer. " I revealed the coral stone hearth and restored the structure, keeping the mod cons—stove and fridge—out of sight." Scheerer likes to take a preservationist approach to his remodels: "He'd rather work with a house more or less the way he finds it than expensively deracinate it with a gut renovation," explains Read in Tom Scheerer Decorates. But, she says, he also has a practical streak: "'Don't make too much trouble for yourself' is one of his mottos. 'Live life now, rather than after a torturous renovation.'" 

    Tom Scheerer cottage Harbour Island Bahamas | Remodelista

    Above: Scheerer added encaustic cement Cuban tiles over the kitchen's cement floor. "Cuban tiles are very at home in the Bahamas; they're found in most of the oldest houses," he says. Now made in the Dominican Republic and Mexico, they're available through Villa Lagoon Tile.

    Tom Scheerer cottage Harbour Island Bahamas | Remodelista

    Above: Scheerer has a weakness for old Thonet bentwood chairs: "I collect them whenever I can; I find them useful in rustic and in urbane interiors." 

    Tom Scheerer cottage Harbour Island Bahamas | Remodelista

    Above: The Cash Box attic is now the master suite. It had a rough pine floor that Scheerer painted with "many, many coats of shiny white: the white floor bounces a lot of light into the room and off the ceiling." The seafoam green walls are, writes Read, "a nod to a Harbour Island old wives' tale about the wasp-repellent properties of the color green." Scheerer found the iron campaign bed at Anthropologie. 

    Tom Scheerer cottage Harbour Island Bahamas | Remodelista

    Above: A peacock wicker chair stands next to the bed and one of the attic's shuttered windows: "There were no windows at the dormer and gable-end openings, only shutters. I added louvered interior shutters for privacy (with a breeze). No screens. No glass."

    Tom Scheerer cottage Harbour Island Bahamas | Remodelista

    Above: One of the great luxuries at the Convent is a new bathroom with a claw-footed tub that Scheerer went to great lengths to get to the island. As in the Cash Box attic, the windows have shutters only.

    Above: At the Cash Box, Scheerer built a simple outdoor dining area "proximate to the kitchen and porch." The table is shaded by a Balinese parasol.

    Above: "Lunch is my favorite hobby—and no sandwiches!" says Scheerer. The faux bois plates came with Martha Stewart.
