Lower East

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and exhibitions, events, dinners and a lot more.

summer greetings

Summer postcards

July 16, 2018

A series of summer greeting postcards – designed & illustrated by our lovely intern Pi Bartholdy, who (for some strange reason) dived into the theme of fish and creatures from the past. We added text about us and our work to the postcards – and wish you all a wonderful summer!



we are extremely curious  We love to turn every stone, to dive one step deeper. If we find one good solution, we immediately start looking for the next, and if we come up with something very fantastic, we celebrate that it happened – and begin the search for even better stuff.

The Pygmy seahorse is the world’s smallest seahorse, around 20 millimeters ‘high’. It is also very, very good at camouflaging itself – so you have to search really, really good to find the little fella.

we also use feathers  
No doubt, we have a Scandinavian background; less is more, white space and a calm attitude. But once in a while, it’s wonderful to make some noise, use many colors, to dress up – and have a lot of fun.

The Alvinella pompejana is a very flexible sea creature. It can withstand very high temperatures and also live in quite cold conditions. It has a beautiful fur, that works as isolation too.

we talk when needed  
We listen carefully to clients, to partners, to young and old – and whatever voices there are around. We love the talks, the dialogues – and the exchange of ideas & thoughts.

The Pelican Eel’s most notable feature is the large mouth, much larger than the eel’s body. The mouth can be opened wide enough to swallow a fish larger than the eel itself.

The doors are open to our world of design & communication – of style, humour, lot of experience, creativity, fantasy and tons of good stories.

Meet the Helicoprion, with the nickname Buzzsaw Killer – story goes it has a 360-degree spiral of teeth, why, and what it used it for is a bit unclear. It looks like a shark, but is actually a very odd fish…
