From Place To Space: Design in Copenhagen – Part Two

June 23, 2013 1

Hello back, friends! After last weeks part one, let us now continue with the design adventures in Copenhagen. The 3-days design trip was marked by great interior design inspiration and a big deal of design bloggers fun. The first day included one more stop – we visited the showroom of Montana, a Danish furniture maker with designs by Verner Panton, Arne Jacobsen and more. We got a proper introduction to the iconic Bachelor chair by Verner Panton and were asked to write a little story about ‘Mr. Bachelor’. Since I had finished the book ‘The Great Gastsby’ just a few days earlier, I was strongly influenced by it and imagined ‘Mr. Bachelor’ as a swanky young man, dandy-esque, enjoying life, the seaside, a good glass of wine and beautiful women. Moreover we were asked to depict ‘Mr. Bachelor’ with the chair, so these were my shots.


After a vivid first day, we embarked on day no. 2 by enjoying a breakfast and styling session in the showroom of Vipp – I blogged about it HERE. After a quick icecream stop we were driven to the headquarters and production facilities of the traditional Danish design brand Georg Jensen. We had a private tour and were introduced to the high quality production of silverware.


Following that, lunch was served at the Bella Center where the upcoming DesignTrade show will take place. Later, a quick ice cream stop was squeezed in and we continued our design tour to the showroom of Vitsoe. Vitsoe realizes the furniture designs of Dieter Rams and is known for its shelving system and design ethos for longevity in furniture design. A few funky drinks and splendid views on their balcony and it was time for dinner (yes, we were sort of eating all the time). And dinner was served in the incredibly cool and to-be restaurant Höst, designed by Norm Architects and styled by one of our design tour members, Emma. But I will blog about the restaurant in detail later. 


That’s it for today, off we go into this Monday. Next week I will round-up my design tour coverage from Copenhagen. Have a happy week!
