A few months back, I had the fortune to be able to attend 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen and visit Frama Copenhagen’s Studio Store. I was blown away by the setting the moment I walked in. It’s an amazing space where old and new clash creating an amazing atmosphere. These are a few pictures of my visit along with some text from Frama’s website.
Have you been there? please, give me your comments! it would be lovely to hear what you think of the space.
The Frama headquarters and Studio Store is located in central Copenhagen within the historic and protected neighbourhood of Nyboder. Former home of the St. Pauls Apotek established in 1878. The synergy between the past and present elements of the space is a direct link to how Frama defines their main interest within the creative field as a dialogue between two opposite poles; classical and contemporary approach – between digital and analogue production.
“The interior aim of the 250m2 spaces was to work on the larger surfaces and not be orientated towards details and larger improvements. In a spartan way the many square meters was renovated in a atelier kind of way with basic constructions and methods.”
The kitchen is made up of free standing elements, in hard wood and steel frames that accentuate an industrial feeling.
Modern minimal contours contrast with the old original furniture from the old days.
Their line of body lotions and hand cremes pay homage to the Apothecary times of the space.
White spaces give a feeling of lightness and maintain a fresh look, while the floors remind us of the past and history of the building.
Th space invites the user to experience peace in many of its areas always playing with the contrast between old and new. between modern and classic.
Thanks for reading!
