MENU supports Save the Children Denmark
Singer and actress Julie Berthelsen and actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau have designed motifs for MENU for Save the Children. Julie Berthelsen and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau are both ambassadors of Save the Children Denmark and have designed the motifs with the Sirius shelter children in mind. The Drop-in center for children in Qaanaaq was founded in 2002 based on the Save the Children’s Protector, HRH Crown Prince Frederik’s visit with the Sirius Patrol.
Now MENU’s raising money for the children’s project through the sale of selected MENU designs – thermo cups, tealight holders and oil lamps.
The designs are decorated with unique artworks created with great commitment by both Julie and Nikolaj:
“My first thoughts went to Greenland, of course. It’s so nice to be able to use my creativity in a whole new and different way! I thought a lot of balance – especially in many parts of Greenland, they need help to find balance, “says Julie Berthelsen.
Her artwork reflects two children, a boy and a girl, an Eskimo boy and girl, who also have hints of smiles across the sea, mountains and icebergs.
“It made perfect sense to me,” says Julie Berthelsen, who herself grew up in Greenland.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau often visits Greenland with his family, and his inspiration is based on refractions:
“My idea was to find a way to express it as a community center that can provide care for children lacking love and reassurance. So what I wanted to reflect in my illustration was refractions. I worked with seismographic fluctuations; ice crystals that melt; a shell breaking, and a child’s footprint, symbolizing that the breach creates freedom for the child to choose its own path. I presented ideas for the very talented, creative team at MENU, and we found the right direction towards the end result which I am very proud of, “says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
You can buy the thermos cups, tealight holders and oil lamps at Inspiration, Magasin and Illums Bolighus in Denmark.
