Celebrating the aesthetic quality and craftsmanship of Danish design, The Apartment introduces a collection of furniture, lighting and interior objects curated by CASESTUDY STUDIO.
For this conceptual recreation of a Danish home, CASESTUDY STUDIO collaborated with selected brands shaping the Scandinavian design landscape - Menu, Reform, Bang & Olufsen, Kvadrat, Please Wait To Be Seated and Tekla.
The Apartment is designed to evoke the atmosphere often found in the way historic Danish architecture plays with light, volumes and shapes. To recreate a similar experience in a modern context, the installation features spatial elements such as archways in a soft and translucent material. The fluid nature of the material creates a unique contrast to the showcased objects made to last, highlighting their timelessness.
Visit the show to experience the epitome of a modern Danish home!
