Cecilie Bahnsen, the Danish designer who has made a reputation for herself with confectionery attire in macaroon hues, is admittedly going locations. She offered her first runway present in Paris final season (and can be again to point out her spring 2023 assortment there), and he or she’s moved from the basement of an outdated brick constructing a bit outdoors the town heart to greater, brighter, and shinier headquarters in an industrial advanced in Osterbro.
When it got here to the inside area, it was love at first—and second—sight: a pleasant déjà vu. In 2019, when the area was uncooked, Bahnsen had used it as a set for her spring 2020 look guide, so when she was on the lookout for new digs, the place appeared virtually meant to be. The corporate now occupies two flooring of the constructing, the highest one, the place the atelier is positioned, and the underside, the place there are open places of work and a canteen. Vegetarian and natural lunches are served on daily basis, and nobody is allowed to eat at their desks. Breaks are inspired.
As if these weren’t #lifestylegoals, the minimal ornament of the workplace is magazine-ready, the results of Bahnsen’s work with the Swedish architectural agency Stamuli and inventive company Moon. The expansive area gave Bahnsen the prospect to spotlight the initiatives of frequent mates and collaborators. Plush seating is from the Danish model Paustian, whereas workplace tables and lamps have been sourced domestically at Studio X. Metal furnishings from the Magniberg of Sweden and Finnish Artek stools (used at previous trend exhibits) sit aspect by aspect with Nina Nørgaard’s glassware. The curtains on the bottom flooring are patchworks of materials from previous collections.
In Scandinavia, the hyperlinks between interiors, way of life, and trend are as a rule symbiotic. When Bahnsen, a graduate of the Royal Faculty of Artwork, first began displaying the intense prettiness of her work and her colourful palette appeared to attach her to British designers like Simone Rocha or Molly Goddard greater than to her fellow Danes. A go to to her studio tells one other story. Seeing how the group styled their Bahnsens, with a band T-shirt, or over denims, was a revelation. Worn for each day life, their preciousness, if not their prettiness, fell away, and the attire felt like a subversive uniform.
