We’re glad to present Jewellery Box by German-born, Copenhagen-based designer Theresa Arns. Her sleak design has a simple and geometric expression and a very sculptural character, whether it is open or closed.
Jewellery box is made to store all your small, precious, personal items. Use it to store jewellery, make-up or tiny office items. Sort your stuff just the way you like it in the small partitions of the box and use the built-in mirror when you’re putting on make-up or jewellery – or just want to check your hair during the day.
Designer Theresa Arns on her design philosophy, “I think I design in a quite “German way”. I am very pragmatic, but I also think it’s very important that all the objects we surround ourselves with play a warm and poetic part. So, I love working with different materials and shapes and always try to design simple objects with a story to tell”.
We’re excited to see which stories you’ll get from her lovely Jewellery Box.[/one_half_column]

Theresa Arns is an architect and furniture designer based in Copenhagen. She graduated in July 2013 from the School of Architecture at The Royal Danish Academy of Arts and is now working on various furniture and interior design projects.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Germany and studied architecture in Düsseldorf. During my studies there, I realized that I wanted to work with furniture, so I came to Copenhagen to continue my studies in architecture – focussing on furniture design.
Where do you live?
My original plan was to go back to Berlin after my studies, where I was working before I came to Denmark, but I fell in love with Copenhagen so I stayed. I find the city very inspiring, as well as the Danish tradition in furniture design and the way to work with natural materials.
Do you have a favourite colour or material?
My favourite colour is a warm grey tone, which I am using quite often in my work and my favourite material is wood, but mostly in combination with other materials like fabric, leather, marble or different metals.
What is the most important thing to consider as a designer?
It’s important to consider that a piece of furniture is an article of daily use. Therefore the most important decisions are about the function and the construction.
