Danish Dreaming

In a few weeks, I'm heading to Denmark. It's a destination I've dreamed of visiting for some time, but Europe seemed so far away after I moved to the West coast. Once I realized there are direct flights between SF and Copenhagen, it was a no brainer... all that stood between me and this design mecca was 10 hours in coach. 

Here are the places I'm most excited to see:

Tortus Copenhagen

This ceramics studio and shop is top on my list of inspiring Instagram feeds these days. I've seen these vessels being made, from start to finish, digitally. Can't wait to meet the artist and hold one in my hands! http://tortus-copenhagen.com/

Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store

A store of all things adorable and lovely. This is why I'll be flying home with a 2nd suitcase.  http://www.normann-copenhagen.com/

Ingvar Cronhammar installation at Cisternerne

"33 years since the cisterns were drained, the water is returned to the 4,320-square-foot water reservoir deep below Søndermarken. As visitors will be surrounded by water, both in the form of a large water surface covering the floor and 28 columns of shining falling water. Via walkways you move into an unknown darkness. The water mirror, reflects and is co-creator of both the visual and the musical part of the project, created by composer Martin Hall." From the installation website.
