Aluminia/Royal Copenhagen Creative Director Nils Thorsson designed most of the shapes in the BACA and Tenera ranges. A group of artists and designers including Marianne Johnson designed many of the patterns and motifs applied to those forms. This delicate cigarette box incorporates the plants and a trellis pattern in light blue and purple on a white ground seen on heftier forms form the range.
