Apple chopping board from Lotta Kühlhorn


Following on from the post earlier in the week, here's more exciting news for those on the lookout for interesting chopping boards. We've previously featured Lotta Kühlhorn's fabulously coloured apple mugs and her range for retro etc. includes several other great designs, such as this apple chopping board. Like the mugs, they use the repeated Pop-like motif of an apple, reflecting her interest in 1970s design. 

They're in-store in Skandium but sadly not on their website and, while the mugs are widely available, I've struggled to find an on-line retailer for the board. However, you can get them through FromSthlm, a US based retailer who also stock Kühlhorn's apple coasters. The board costs $32, while the coasters cost $14 for a set of four.

Next apple memo board

Apple memo board crop

Like the Balmoral mugs featured last week, this apple memo board from Next clearly references Enzo Mari's 'La Mela'. Even without knowing its predecessor, its graphic red outline will stand out in any kitchen or hallway. Usefully it comes with five further apple shaped magnets, perfect for pinning up notes or photos, and a pen for scrawling messages across the board. The board costs just £22.

You may also be interested in the fruit patterned mugs in the left of the image which feature the same apple motif and also a corresponding pear design. A set of the four mugs is even more of a bargain at £7.
