We use these cups for that first cup of coffee in the morning, as water glasses next to our wine at dinner and for tea or juice in the evening. We even use the Familjen cups as toothbrush cups because it makes us happy seeing all the smiley faces before we go to bed at night. The Familjen pattern is inspired by the diversity that is family.
The Scandinavian tradition to forage and grow is fondly rooted in us; reaping everything edible that springs out of the land. The Harvest pattern is inspired by this. These cups can be used for tea and coffee or small storage jars. They are perfect for serving raspberry and liquorice marmalade.
The Tingleby pattern is inspired by anecdotes and hidden memories, secrets untold and almost forgotten. The beat of life bouncing gently along cobbled backstreets and alleyways until being swept away with the wind through the trees. And we always feel inclined to drink a refreshing rooibosh tea or a sweet and frothy chai matcha latte out of these cups; sit down for a moment and reflect. The Tingleby cups also make the perfect sugar bowl.
Isak was brought to life by Swedish designer Sandra Isaksson. She was raised by a family of trolls in the heart of a Swedish forest. Blueberrykissed; she sculpted clouds and painted rainbows, carved with wind and whittled snowflakes from skybears. Restless she travelled the world in search for inspiration. She eventually found it in a small English town where she now creates beautiful happy things for Isak.
Isak is a brand of well designed and functional graphic based home accessories with a retro infused twist and a twinkle in the eye. We take everyday objects and turn them into better products, we marry a 1950s and 1960s Scandic nostalgia with modern living and create something new Nordic, vibrant and fun.
We are passionate about creating a brand of responsibly manufactured products for the home. Our products are made with the simple aim of making your world a little happier and a little more beautiful. We use the best materials available, recycle as much as possible and make our packaging reusable. We use wood from sustainable sources and recycled paper products and vegetable inks wherever we can. We aim to produce products with integrity; products designed to last, to be passed down and enjoyed for many years to come. We treasure our past and protect our future. In our opinion, this produces an ethical brand.
P.S. Many of our products are part hand made by trolls.
The goal of Isak is to make your world a better place. Our small way of doing this is by creating “beautiful happy things” for your home. We believe that beautiful happy surroundings improve your life.
Our products are inspired by FAMILY, EATING and NATURE. We are inspired by the Scandinavian design tradition, good craftmanship and naturally sourced materials. ISAK products revolve around the family inside the home. The nest, the home, the sanctuary; creating a space within.
The Isak world is guided by some core principles that establish our ethos:
Love your family, care for them and teach them about the beauty of the world. Home is the most important place in your world. Be loyal, open and honest with your friends. Understand that childhood is the most precious commodity and cannot be traded. The availability of food is not a right, it must be earned and appreciated. There is beauty everywhere and in everything but Nature will always produce the best designs.
Respect all others. We all have our own stories.
At Isak we strive to do everything to the best of our ability with integrity, honesty and openness.
We are as green as we can be. We use responsible sourced and recycled materials wherever we can. At the heart of the Isak brand stands: Integrety, honesty, quality.
We try the best we can at working in harmony with the environment, our partners, our customers, and the societies we touch. We are not exclusively organic or fair trade – because this doesn’t necessarily mean anything. We do the best we can, use the best materials that we can, recycle what we can and treat people well, and that is what makes us ethical and able to trade fairly. Our products are mostly made in Europe, most of them in Sweden and the UK. The boxes for our cups have been designed for re-use. We use vegetable based inks and recycle as much as possible.
