In partnership with Moebe
june 23, 2017
One of the things I love the most about being self-employed is getting to know and working with a range of different clients who I feel match my personal style and aesthetic. As you're probably aware of by now, straightforward Scandinavian design isn't completely wasted on me, which is why I was very pleased when Danish brand Moebe reached out recently to discuss ways we could work together. I was well familiar with their popular frames, and I quickly realised they do much more than these. Scroll down this post for a look inside their new and beautiful Copenhagen showroom.
After my first meeting with Moebe over a cup of coffee, I biked home feeling inspired and energized which is always a good sign when meeting a client. Moebe is created by cabinetmaker Anders Thams and architects Nicholas Oldroyd and Martin D. Christensen, and based on their love of great quality, simplistic designs. They've already made a name for themselves both in Denmark and beyond, and their aim is to present a full collection of furniture and interior designs within the coming years — I personally can't wait to see what they come up with.
Despite Moebe's plans for the future, their current showroom is still most definitely worth a visit if you're a design lover in Copenhagen. Some of my favourite pieces from their current collection are the beautiful round wall mirrors that leave the glass to speak for itself. So incredibly beautiful and simple. Furthermore, Moebe designs simple poster hangers, wooden organisers in solid oak, the elegant candlelight holders in brass, steel or copper, a side table and a clever stand made to fit standard architect lamps. Every piece is designed with attention to detail, and I really like how Moebe encourages a more thoughtful approach to design; as an example, they ask you to switch the rubber band in the 'Pinch' design when the original one won't work any more, and eventually, when and if you decide not to keep it in your home any more, toss it in the woods or in the fire instead of just throwing it out with the garbage.
