Best of 3 days of design
Après Milan, Goodmoods fait une escale à Copenhague où la très courte design week danoise vient de s’achever et d’affirmer (une nouvelle fois) sa position d’outsider.
Du marché aux fleurs de Tableau au candyshop d’Helle Mardahl en passant par le Pavillon translucide de Fritz Hansen… Durant trois jours, les adresses prisées comme les lieux insolites de la capitale ont été la scène d’installations et de scénographies aux avant-postes de la tendance et du savoir-faire. Retour en images sur le meilleur des 3 days of design.
Le garage industriel de Vipp
Head for Brygge Island in Copenhagen, where architects Frank Maali and Gemma Lalanda have transformed a 1950s garage into a monumental event space for the Danish publisher Vipp. Steel plates with a patina on the walls, polished black concrete mottled on the floor, vaulted bricks on the ceiling... The industrial codes of the area are invited into the interior with style and sobriety.
The sweet illusion of Helle Mardahl
Helle Mardahl's glass-blown sweets are still amazing. And her installations even less so. For three days, the designer has been delighting the Danish capital with a scenography worthy of the city's finest candy shops. Acidic candy boxes, suspensions and vases inflated like chewing gum... If nothing was edible, everything was staged to be eaten with the eyes.
Kristina Dam's sculptural minimalism
For 72 hours, the Danish designer Kim Grenaa has kindly lent the keys to his flat in the backyard of a historic factory in central Copenhagen to the studio Kristina Dam to celebrate its 10 years of creation. The padded, light-filled setting silently welcomed the brand's tables, stools, vases, prints and other sculptural pieces in a softly sophisticated minimalism.
Tableau & Nordic Knots flower market
As usual, Tableau, the multidisciplinary studio that wields the art of floral design like no one else, was swarming Copenhagen with its colourful compositions to unveil its collaboration with manufacturer Nordic Knots: a collection of carpets with ultra-saturated scribbled prints, presented through an installation inspired by the city's flower market.
Le pavillion lumineux de Fritz Hansen
At Fritz Hansen, the appointment was given in the garden of the Designmuseum Danmark, in a translucent pavilion made of glued laminated wood built by the prestigious architectural firm Henning Larsen for the 150th anniversary of the publisher. Just after this design interlude, the structure, designed to interact with the light and architecture of the city, will remain in the garden all summer and will host exhibitions, workshops and private lessons...
Les icônes argentées de Georg Jensen
Striated mirror walls, iridescent grey wood logs, reflective crockery and sculptures... The tone was set at the Georg Jensen store on Amagertorv Square: everything must be silver. The goldsmiths' brand presented an immersive, multi-sensory installation with metallic tones with local studio Spacon & X, and unveiled alongside its icons created with Verner Panton and Henning Koppel, its new silver pieces designed by Japanese studio Nendo.
Soft furniture by Carsten in der Elst
This year, the rookie 3 days of design was called Carsten in der Elst, and he is German. The designer was the special guest of Tableau, which presented and staged Soft Works, his series of eco-designed furniture made from soft industrial by-products (cork, silicone, mattress remains) in the Danish showroom.
