Unique products created especially for the museum

In connection with the exhibition Flowers and World Views the SMK has worked with external suppliers to create three unique products.

All of the products are inspired by the Gottorfer Codex.

Unique wallpaper

Working in collaboration with the Flügger chain of paint supplies stores we have created a unique wallpaper featuring one of the flowers from the Gottorfer Codex.

Called Black Iris, the wallpaper design features a strong motif: the popular Mourning Iris (Iris susiana L.).

With its dark purple-black petals outlined against a delicate yellow background the wallpaper is well suited to contemporary interiors, particularly when paired with dark greys, blues, and browns.

The wallpaper is available from the SMK Bookshop, from Flügger stores, and at flugger.dk. It costs 455 DDK per roll.

Beautiful scarves

Signe Emdal has created the two scarves.

Inspired by the bold, yet also romantic colour schemes in the Gottorfer Codex albums, textile artist Signe Emdal has created new, beautiful designs for her popular series of scarves.

Signe Emdal, who graduated from the Kolding School of Design in 2007, works with translating historic subject matter into contemporary products. 

In addition to her own production of knitted products at Emdal Colorknit Factory she has also designed colourful knitwear for e.g. Henrik Vibskov (Denmark) and NIKITA (Iceland).

Now she has translated dark irises and colourful tulips from the 17th century into modern knitted scarves of the softest quality imaginable. Known affectionately as "A wearable hug", the scarf series retails at DKK 1,150 each.

Flower seeds

The museum has co-operated with Nelson Garden to launch a range of 28 different seeds that allow you to bring many of the flowers from the Gottorfer Codex back home to your garden, balcony or windowsill.

The Gottorfer Codex is full of paintings of the flowers of the gardens at Gottorf Castle. The album was painted by Hans Simon Holtzbecker and commissioned by duke Frederick III in the 17th century. Back then flowers were rare and precious. A beautiful garden conferred great prestige on princes such as Frederick III.
