As a little spinoff from the “Unique Fellow project” we have printed our favorite quote from Eddie Merckx in color on top of one half of the Ride XL print. We started with soft pink and then a grayish blue. We have decided to print them in very small editions (max 10 per color) as a way to keep them almost as unique as the Unique Fellows. And who knows maybe we mix and print some more colors further on. You can find these tow in the shop.
We have made a short film to tell some about how we do it – the jollygoodfellow process, some of our inspiration, preparations and the actual printing. Hope you like it!
Finland and Sweden have much in common but there are also big differences. Especially when it comes to war and peace. Finland is a young nation and we feel that the fighting spirit is still present. Another big difference is the SAUNA that is a part of the daily life in Finland but in Sweden it’s just something that is offered at the public swimming pool.
When we visit Finland it’s always summer, we are off grid more or less all the time and no one is in a hurry. So we can say that our picture of Finland is a bit romanticized. Maybe that’s why our prints based on photos taken over there have a special room in our hearts.
Today we want to say Happy Birthday Suomi Finland !
Or new blocks for all of us who still have some playfullness…
With the same cork cubes as we use for the Urban Cube Calendar we have made these blocks. They can be used as a 3×3 puzzle with just triangles and squares. You can have it as your own transformable sculpture, place some of them in a still-life with other favorites, let the kids try new ideas.
The blocks feel soft and warm when you grab them and if they fall to the ground, the noise will be soft as well.
You can find them in our webshop.
This is the stool Lilla Snåland, made of leftovers from the classic chair Lilla Åland, together with our interpretation/screenprint on the wall.
Close up of the screenprint.
The triangels on the right is the raw material for Lilla Snåland (and the parts that are removed in the production of Lilla Åland).
The print will be available in the jollygoodshop soon, we are just wating for Marie-Louise to come and sign them first : )
As Marie-Louise have designed lots of nice tea cups during the years and showed her newest at Tent London we started to think about steam. We worked in two days trying to catch steam, it was difficult but fun. Finally we transformed it to a screenprint as well, this is Steam!

This is Sauna Vihta, our tribute to Finland who celebrate 100 years of independence.
For us Finland is sauna. Every summer when we are on our way to the cottage on the Finnish countryside we cross our fingers and hope that the sauna will be intact and ready for some fire. But it’s important to heat slow and during the waiting it’s good to make a sauna vihta!
