The reason I went to Copenhagen this week was to style a few pictures for a new restaurant, and this is the story behind it:
Norm Architects designed a dinner service named New Norm together with Menu, a Danish design company. And now they are making a whole restaurant around the concept, called Höst (Autumn in Swedish). The restaurant will be a part of Cofoco, a hugely popular restaurant group in Copenhagen, who already runs nine restaurants, each with its own distinct style and menu. The focus at Höst will be on organic, locally produced New Nordic cuisine. Something I got to see for myself when I stepped into the kitchen and found a chef preparing some dish using a pine tree! And in the basement, instead of the traditional wine cellar, there is a jam/preserves cellar. I loved their concept and ideas and will tell you more soon when I get the final photos that Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and I made together.
Right now I can't wait to show you some behind the scenes snapshots that I made. What you can't really see here in the photos is that the space was only half ready, the renovations still going on everywhere, with builders and staff running around trying to get everything ready. You might spot a painting ladder here or a broom there, but trust me, it was quite chaotic really... I'm sure they'll manage to get it all together for the big opening night though!
I'm getting to like my new EOS M camera more and more, and my favorite feature this far is the fact that you can set it to shoot in your own personal settings. So instead of using one of the built in scenes like sunset, sports or landscape, I created my own "scene" to suit my taste in photography, with added contrast and sharpness and less saturation than the automatic mode.
