Royal Copenhagen + the Royal Café in Copenhagen

How going to Copenhagen and miss a visit to Royal Copenhagen museum-shop? Interiors were fantastic and casually I discovered the near fairy Royal Cafe where you can eat cakes and smørrebrød.

The Royal Cafe is created and owned by Lo Østergaard and Rud Christiansen that happily opened it on 2007. The Cafe is a 50/50 mix of shop and food where famous Danish manufacturers - Royal Copenhagen, Georg Jensen, Fritz Hansen, Bang & Olufsen, Kvadrat, Carlsberg, Holmegaard etc. - are presented in a Cafe/Shop environment. Locations outside Denmark will function and perform as a “mini” danish embassy, where design, history and cuisine from Denmark are incorporated.

Lo and Rud have taken great care to find products for The Royal Cafe construction. Fritz Hansen have for example produced the “ANT” chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in a new size called counter-height for the first time. Holmegaard Glass have produced the chandeliers according to the owners' design, using their own expertise in glass making. Royal Copenhagen have adapted several serving items, so that they are functional in a Cafe enviroment. Also Georg Jensen uses their many designs in cutlery, vases, candlesticks and salt/pepper grinders for preserving the clients attention to their long history of design.
“We also feel that it is important to notice that The Royal Cafe has “soul” and we like to call it “Funky Baroque – design confusion, humourous and chic”.

Come andare a Copenhagen e non visitare il negozio-museo di Royal Copenhagen? Gli interni sono bellissimi e nella visita ho scoperto per caso l'adiacente Royal Cafe, il caffè delle fate dove mangiare dolci e smørrebrød.
