From Place To Space: Design in Copenhagen – Part Three

Ready for the final part of my Scandinavian design adventure in Copenhagen? After part ONE and TWO, here we go with the third and final day of my blog tour in Denmark. Let’s roll!


Day 3 kicked-off with a breakfast in the studio of Norm Architects in downtown Copenhagen, where we were invited by &tradition, a Danish design company established in 2010 with the founding principle being tradition tied to innovation. We got a quick insight into the product portfolio including the new ‘Catch Chair’ by Jaime Hayon. Afterwards we were again challenged: to use the &tradition products and style a corner by ourselves. I blogged about the results HERE.


After the styling fun we visited the production facility of Carl Hansen, a furniture production established in the 19th century and still continuing the tradition of refined craftsmanship. They produce iconic chairs such as the ‘Wishbone Chair’ by Wegner and more. Funky fact: Within the factory, one of Denmark’s last hat makers has its atelier and we peeked into it – great fun! After the factory tour we headed over to the new Carl Hansen flagship store and tested some of Denmark’s finest furniture ourselves.


The final stop was a real summer highlight – we set foot on a boat in one of Copenhagen’s canals and enjoyed chilled white wine and fresh fruits under the Scandinavian sun while the guys of the label ‘Ocean Going’ told us more about the ‘Talent Street’ area on the DesignTrade show. The PR rep of Kay Bojesen mingled with us too, and we all were relieved that leaving Copenhagen will be easy cause we will reunite in late August again. I can’t wait!


Happy Monday!
