Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Designer Zoo

Designer Zoo is 800 square meters in central Copenhagen, partioned into two floors housing a design shop, gallery and work studios for eight Danish designers, artists and crafters. In the store you can buy products not only from the inhouse designers, but also from 15-20 specially invited handcraft designers, such as Anne Black and Malene Helbak.


Two of the inhouse designers seemed especially interesting to me, the first one being Anna-Carin Dahl, a ceramist who works mainly with nature inspired porcelain, combining the unspoilt nature with a more raw and urban expression.


The other is Jane Holmberg Andersen, also a ceramist, but her works have a little more unrefined feeling, with matte surfaces and a more neutral colour scheme.

    Oooh - you should definitely pay them a visit when you're in Copenhagen! I went there last December and I felt like a kid in a candy store. A lot of pretty, pretty things to be seen indeed and I ended up buying a pouch by Kirsten Fribert.
