These beautiful and colorful Fika trays are part of the fika series of I Love Design. They are 27 x 20 cm, made of birch wood and made by hand, covered with a beautiful print and laminated so that moisture does not have a hold on the wood.
In addition to the word fika, each tray mentions the English text below that explains what fika means. The ideal tray for anyone who loves Sweden and fika.
Fika is a social institution in Sweden: it means having a break. Most often a coffee break with colleagues, friends, date or family. The word has quite ambiguous connotations and can mean anything from taking a break from work or other activities, to going on a date. This practice of taking a break, typically with a cinnamon roll or some biscuits or cookies, or sometimes a smörgås or a fruit on the side, is central to Swedish life, and is regularly enjoyed by the government.
