Denmark has a lot to be proud of. The extensive safety net of our welfare system, our free top-level educational system, the record low crime rates and the almost non-existent corruption of our society. But one of the more tangible features of our culture is a long-standing design tradition. For decades, Danish design has been praised abroad and soon New Yorkers will be able to shop for it locally when one of the Danish design marvels of the 21st century, Han Kjøbenhavn, opens a flagship store in Prince Street in Soho this February. The interior of the shop is designed by the creative Copenhageners themselves spiced up with a few classics from Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wegner. Hopefully we’ll get some pictures of the shop soon. In the meantime, you can read more about Han Kjøbenhavn here.
