Inspiration - Hellesens June 12, 2013 13:55
Hellesens was a Danish company founded by Willhelm Hellesen. Willhelm invented the dry battery, which revolutionized the world, when the need for batteries increased. Willhelm was an amateur inventor, who came across the solution for the dry cell by chance, but that didn't stop him from creating an impact on the world. I remember the batteries with the iconic Tiger logo, but I don't think you can get them anymore. But they're a symbol of Danish ingenuity, craftsmanship, willpower and something that made a real impact on the rest of the world.
This is why I cherish the logo (which was made by Gunnar Biilmann Petersen). It's really iconic and it may even be something that people from other countries will recognise because Hellesens batteries were sold all over the world.
This beautiful indigo blue stoneware plate was even made by a really good stoneware/porcelain factory called, Aluminia.
