The 5 biggest shops for Danish Design
1) Illums Bolighus
Illums Bolighus is a massive, multi-level department store dedicated exclusively to the very best of Danish and Scandinavian design. This ‘temple to modern design’ is overwhelming in all the best ways.
2) Normann Copenhagen
Recognised by The New York Times as one of the ‘12 Shopping Treasures of Europe’, this concept store carries the full line of Normann Copenhagen’s own design products as well as hundreds of other books, clothing, and interior products from fellow Scandinavian brands.
3) HAY House
In recent years, there has been no bigger name in Danish design than HAY. Inside HAY House, the brand showcases their goods in the unique context of an apartment space overlooking Copenhagen’s Amagertorv (Amager Square).
Located in a showroom designed by Danish architect J.rn Utzon (designer of the Sydney Opera House), Faustian has been a leading name in Danish design for decades. The shop showcases a sophisticated and elegant mixture of new design and classic Danish masterpieces.
Bolia is a rising star in the world of Danish design. Balancing practical Nordic minimalism with playful geometries, Bolia creates ingenious and (relatively) affordable furniture, lighting, housewares, and textiles.
