NORDIC PLACES TO VISIT // COZY NÆRVÆR WINE BAR & RESTAURANT IN COPENHAGEN

Nærvær (meaning presence) is Copenhagen’s new wine bar & restaurant, located in Krøyers Plads with the water and the Inderhavnsbroen as a backdrop to the city’s light. The restaurant can only seat no more than twelve people, and the space is divided into different areas to help enhance the intimate experience.

Danish Norm Architects used a dark palette combined with warm materials and minimal lighting to create a cosy atmosphere. The place is full of character, and the custom lighting made by the Danes are a beautiful addition.

“With an interior design defined by an array of stone, wood and metal, the materials are all natural and have deliberately been altered in order to create dark and industrial surfaces that matches the mood of the place. This conscious focus on tactility brings a warm, material richness to the interior that naturally compliments the raw concrete walls and industrial framework of the space.” – Norm Architects

Because of the limited space, it is recommended to book if you are planning to visit. Nærvær is located at Strandgade 87 C, stuen, 1401 København K, Denmark. Find out more here.

SERIES OF FRAMED MIRRORS BY MUUTO

Framed-mirrors-Muuto-03

When I went to the Milano Design Week hunting for great Scandinavian design last month one of my absolute favourite finds was the new Framed mirrors designed by Anderssen & Voll for Muuto. These beautiful tinted mirrors are now available in two sizes and three color versions, my favourite one is the rose copper version. Coloured mirrors are such a great way to add a decorative touch to any room, as you can see in the styled images.

”We wanted to create a mirror that was more than merely a reflective surface. FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It adds not only the functionality of a mirror to your home, but with its depth, organic shape and tone-in-tone colour, it is almost perceived as an art object on the wall. The FRAMED mirror can hang beautifully on your walls alone or combined with other sizes and colours.” – Anderssen & Voll
