Copenhague is a furniture series designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec especially for the new buildings at the University of Copenhagen. In addition to a homely and welcoming expression, functional furniture qualities such as stackability, durability and ease of cleaning were important design requirements for the university. The Bouroullec brothers approach the task by merging design history with modern technology in an idiom with a strong and independent appearance in a broad and versatile series that embraces both public and private environments.
Copenhague Desk puts nostalgia into a modern context. The Bouroullec brothers’ simple yet sophisticated design of the asymmetrical legs coupled with the retro-reminiscent expression, which is enhanced by the elegant linoleum colours, is precise design and sensuous storytelling.
