For the newly graduated student, a gift in the theme of the studies can be especially suitable. The book ends Alfa Omega were designed by Estrid Ericson in 1946 and can be a symbolic gift for all the hours spent studying, while at the same time arousing a new desire to read. The book ends can be used as a piece for the bookshelf, as a decorative interior detail or as a letterpress, among other things. The paper knife Alligator is a perfect gift for someone who recently graduated and just started their career, and were designed already in 1929 by Björn Trägårdh, who was one of the very first to design pewter for Svenskt Tenn.
Reading Lamps and Luminaires
As a graduation gift, a timeless lamp with a decorative lampshade can be much appreciated. Among the classics are the height and angle adjustable floor lamp 1842, designed by Josef Frank in 1932, and the iconic table lamps by the Italian painter, sculptor and designer Fornasetti, who was a personal friend and collaborator of Estrid Ericson. Combine it with a solid-coloured lampshade or go for one that is adorned with one of Svenskt Tenn's colourful textiles, such as Josef Frank's Tulip or Estrid Ericson's Elefant.
Housewarming Gifts to Students
As a graduate, you are often in the process of creating your own first home. Patterned trays, coasters, pot holders and tablecloths, drinking glasses with a golden brim or in coloured glass from Reijmyre, or one of Svenskt Tenn's many porcelain series are all perfect gifts for those who have just moved away from home. Fornasetti's iconic porcelain plates have long been popular interior details that can be seen on both the table or on the walls in the kitchen, dining room and living room.
