Scandinavian design, minimalism and innovation are among the first things that come to mind when we think about Denmark. And the numerous art galleries, design museums and showrooms that one finds in almost every Danish city come as a gentle reminder of this country’s position as a leader in the design industry, whether it’s fashion, interior or architecture. I remember how I used to walk along Vestergade in Aarhus and be mesmerised by how many galleries and workshops there were, and the same happens every time I’m on Bredgade, right in the centre of Copenhagen, where many historical mansions host art galleries and design showrooms.
One of such showrooms that I visited a few weeks ago is MOEBE, a new Scandinavian brand, whose designs are impossible not to fall in love with. Simple and creative, the designers and architects at Moebe use raw materials to give shape and functionality to the beautiful objects you can see here, and in their catalogue. Staying true to their Danish origins, Moebe are all about keeping things simple and beautiful, with a touch of playfulness. Keeping my fingers away from dismantling their designs and then putting them back together wasn’t easy at all. I would say that it’s impossible to be bored at home or at the office when you are surrounded with these little objects. After all, who’s ever bored when they have a mirror?
Find a list of the objects in this post below 😉
