I was lucky to attend the opening party of Hotel Charlottenborg exhibition the day before the official doors opened for the public, which means I was also able to take a few photos of my own to show you some of my favorite pieces. Hotel Charlottenborg showcased 16 furniture brands in one of Copenhagen’s most beautiful buildings, Charlottenborg Festsal, and is curated by the team behind Ark Journal. The exhibition focused on the hospitality scene, in fresh settings that play up the zone between private and public, creating a home away from home.
“The home away from home concept and the zone between private and public are some of the interesting trends we are currently reading in the interior design of many new restaurants and hotels. The hotel framework is therefore both a creative framework for creating an exhibition – and interesting for the participating companies, because precisely the contract market is very attractive” says Didde Rishøj, consultant at Dansk Industri.
Fritz Hansen, Kvist Industries, Skovby Møbelfabrik, Re Beds, Møbelsnedkeri Kjeldtoft, Magnus Olesen, Eilersen (more of their new sofa as shown in the exhibition and their history I wrote here) , Cane-line, Randers+Radius, Vahle, W.O. Interior, Overgaard & Dyrman, Søren Lund Møbler, Four Design, Brdr. Petersen and Form & Refine , are the exhibitors , a group composed of both large and small, young and more established companies. All the brands are showing a mixture of new pieces juxtaposed to some classics and elements that help elevate the Hotel Charlottenborg concept.
While perusing through all the exhibitors , we were also treated to drinks in Charlottenborg’s large inner courtyard that became a quaint cafe for the 3 Days of Design, where I must thank Lisa ( my wing woman extraordinaire liaison from Eilersen) for arranging so I never missed an opportunity to drink and have fun. What are good friends for 🙂
