Evolving from a body of works realised over the last decade between Space Copenhagen and Danish fine cabinet maker Malte Gormsen, Atmospheres is an ongoing collaboration rooted in the two partners’ continuous work on creating bespoke furnitures for exclusive interior projects like acclaimed destination restaurants Noma, Geranium, Geist and 108.

With exquisitely refined workmanship and uncompromised detail, yet with an unpretentious, timeless expression, Atmospheres strives to re-ignite the close relationship between form-giver and craftsman; the intuitive, unhurried exchange between drawing and workshop, creating unique furnitures and objects that share a genuine and modest design language, illuminating clarity of intention, material and classic furniture making principles.

A few weeks ago we had our photographer taking a few shots of recently opened, Restaurant Barr. The restaurant, which belongs to the Noma family, is designed by the Norwegian design house, Snøhetta. The interior and the furniture have been crafted by the cabinetmakers at our workshop in Herlev (except the round tables by Jonas Lyndby and the Finn Juhl chairs). 

Make sure you notice the solid oak planks on the walls and in the gaps between the ceiling beams. It’s sourced solid Danish oak grown in protected, state owned forests north of Copenhagen, which have been shaped and carved in our five axis CNC machine.

Fotografiska is an international meeting place, where everything revolves around photography. It is located in the heart of Stockholm, Sweden, and housed in a former industrial Art Nouveau style building dating back to 1906. Artists like Annie Leibovitz, David LaChapelle, Nick Brandt and Helena Blomqvist are only a few of leading photographers that have been exhibited here.

At Malte Gormsen we were responsible for the interior fitting of the restaurant area. We also crafted bespoke furniture at our workshop in Copenhagen, like the tables with brass edge and the sofas in the lounge area - designed by Space Copenhagen.
