Snart åbner den nye sushi-restaurant NORI i den Østerbro-del af hippe Ryesgade.

På designfronten er vi i godt selskab. Udover vores egen tegnestue og skiltestudio er Håndvärk med Emil Thorup i spidsen, Blomsterdrøm og andre kreative kræfter med på projektet.

Vi ser frem til åbning af NORI primo Juni 2016.

For nu skal man nøjes med restaurantens stilrene skilt, som vi leverede i fredags.

På gensyn!


Renovation & extension of a mid-century villa


This summer the studio worked on the renovation and extension of a mid-century brownstone villa, located on the outskirts of Copenhagen.

The original 3 bedroom-house was given extra square meters by adding a new bedroom on an existing  terrace. The new bedroom embracing a luscious garden while eastward the villa was extended by a wide deck, accessible from the kitchen.

As we speak the happy owners are bringing their final touch to this exciting project. More pix to follow.

The entire entreprise was realized by Krausebyg (Anders Krause / http://www.krausebyg.dk)

Opening reception


The architect, the designer, the curator – Nov.6th-2015*

Friday night turned out to be a huge succes. One awesome night to remember. Many guests attended the French Institute’s opening reception under which the new cultural center revealed its new look.
After the official opening by The French ambassador to Denmark, the thank yous to the architects, designers and the invited artists, it was time to party, a glass of green absinth in one hand and a business card in the other (just in case), to look at the beautiful works showcasing french talents and in the end dance the night away.
The two exhibitions presented for the occasion featured design artefacts by Aurélien Barbry in the lobby and photographs by Arnaud Delrue in the upper levels of the house. Delrue who is also a writer, talked about his newly Danish translated novel Un été en famille (sommerferie med Familien), prior to presenting his latest photographic endeavor: Minotaures.

Sprucing up the French Institute’s lobby

The make-over of the French Institute started a few weeks ago. We are currently working on the reception area where a new oak flooring will bring warmth and coziness to the French new hub in Copenhagen. Along with the floor we created a removable platform on which visitors and guests alike can sit while reading a book, looking at an exhibition or just sipping coffee.

See you soon.

Interview about Hovedkassen at Copenhagen City Hall

In 2007/2008 the studio was commissioned by 2+1 Ideas Agency to take part in the revamping of Copenhagen City Hall’s old Hovedkasse  – a hybrid treasury cash room designed by architect Martin Nyrop in 1905, where citizens would come to either pay their state issued bills or store their private valuables.

Hand in hand with multi-talent designer Jesper Sønderaas we developed the concept for the refurbishment of Hovedkassen. Today a state-of-the-art conference room with pioneer features. We stood primarily for both the implementation and the coordination on site as well as the creation of bespoke design pieces (partition walls, reception desk, cabinets…)

Our aim was to ensure the inscription of Hovedkassen in a line of emblematic rooms housed in the City Hall. Magistratsalen, Rådhushallen, Bryllupssalen, Festsalen… to name but a few.

Hovekassen was inaugurated in the fall of 2008 by former Mayor of Copenhagen Ritt Bjerregaard.

Here’s a short film about the premises, the challenges and the process, which lead to the Hovedkasse we know today.


I 2007/2008 blev tegnestuen inviteret af 2 +1 Idébureau at deltage i moderniseringen af Københavns Rådhus gamle Hovedkasse – Martin Nyrops værk fra 1905 blev i gamle dage brugt til omsætning af valutaindtjening og opbevaring af værdipapirer.

Hånd i hånd med multi-talent designer Jesper Sønderaas, udviklede vi konceptet for renoveringen af Hovedkassen – i dag et ”state-of-the-art” konferencerum med advancerede funktioner. Vi stod primært for både gennemførelsen og koordineringen på stedet samt oprettelsen af skræddersyede design elementer (skillevægge, receptionsdisk, kabinetter …)

Vores mål var at udvide viften af Rådhusets attraktioner ved at lade Hovedkassen skriver sig ind i rækken af husets mest kendte seværdigheder: Magistratsalen, Rådhushallen, Bryllupssalen, Festsalen … for at nævne nogle få.

Hovekassen blev indviet i efteråret 2008 af tidligere Overborgmester Ritt Bjerregaard.

Nedenstående vises filmen, hvor vi fortæller om konteksten, udfordringerne og processen, som førte til den Hovedkasse vi i dag benytter.
