Danish Light: 8 Ideas to Steal from a New Restaurant in Copenhagen by a Studio on the Rise
Not long ago, after a particularly bleak winter in New York City, I found myself fantasizing about a potential escape, looking at airfare, and scouring the internet for new hotels and wine bars to try when. I stumbled upon Hverdagen – a new restaurant in the industrial-cool Kødbyen district of the city with warm, clean interiors, paper lanterns, and terracotta-colored details – and added it to my itinerary list of wishes.
A little more research revealed that the interiors of the restaurant are from the Danish studio Vermland, founded by cabinetmaker Joakim Tolf Vulpius and young architect Anton Bak – the same Anton Bak behind a rambling two-week, $ 1,000 renovation in Brooklyn. , we presented a few years. a few years ago, when he was a space designer at the Royal Danish Academy and his partner, Kristina Line, was an intern at Søren Rose Studio in New York. The world of design is small.
Back to the restaurant: it’s full of nice, subtle design details to consider – and well worth a visit if you find yourself in Copenhagen.
