SPOTLIGHT // MAISON DU DANEMARK

Located along the Champs-Elysees, Maison Du Danemark is Denmark’s cultural house in Paris - hosting cultural events, exhibitions and gatherings. The striking c.1935 building has recently been updated, with the addition of two restaurants designed by one of our favourite design duos, GamFratesi – and in our opinion, it’s some of their best work yet.


The new drop-dead incredible interior is inspired by both classic and contemporary Danish design philosophies and features a fresh directional palette and plenty of furniture and lighting from iconic Danish brands like Gubi, Lightyears and Louis Poulsen.

 

Downstairs, Flora Danica is a contemporary Danish brasserie and features a light, botanical inspired interior. The cheerful yet sophisticated atmosphere is characterised by a green palette, art deco shapes and an eclectic mix of finishes from chevron tiling and deep green marble to moss velvet, mirrored ceiling and wall panels and brass detailing. GamFratesi’s designs are used throughout, including the Beetle chair in an eclectic patterned fabric and the new TS dining table (both from Gubi), along with the new Suspence pendant for Lightyears.

 

Upstairs, Copenhague offers a more formal Scandinavian dining experience amongst a dark and moody setting. With an intense deep blue palette, the space features layer-upon-layer of texture to create an intimate and elegant environment. Mottled blue walls, grey textured carpet and pale blue drapes layer beautifully with black leather and velvet upholstery, midnight blue tablecloths and black and grey detailing. GamFratesi’s large-scale TS mirrors line the walls, along with their unique Cobra lamps – both which were designed for Gubi. Also part of Gubi’s furniture collection are the dining chairs, which are four-legged metal versions of their original Masculo Collection. This variation allows for a more comfortable, lighter seating option than the original. The iconic Artichoke pendant from Louis Poulsen anchors each island table setting.

 

Maison du Danemark is located at 142 Av. des Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris, France. 


Beetle stools by GamFratesi for Gubi line the striking green-marble bar downstairs at Flora Danica. The bar is lit with the iconic PH table lamp, designed by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen in 1928. 

The new Suspence pendant by GamFratesi for Lightyears beautifully anchors each banquette seating nook.
