When Wik & Walsøe was established, the Elf was chosen as a symbol of dreams, hopes and the faith in making the impossible possible. The pattern and significance of this remarkable and popular tableware has become a big part of the Norwegian design studio Wik & Walsøe’s image and brand.
Making the impossible possible
The Alv (Elf) tableware is inspired by magic, dreams and the beauty of nature, and symbolizes that anything is possible if you just set your mind to it. A small elf balances gingerly on the mythical branches that adorn the white porcelain.
The Alv tableware brings magic to the table and makes it sparkle. It consists of several pieces produced in high-fired feldspar.
