Designer Zoo – Copenhagen


During my trip to Copenhagen I tried to visit as many interesting shops as I could. There are plenty of quirky and small shops around the city centre, but Designer Zoo is worth crossing the sex shops of Vesterbro into the “new hipster” bit of Copenhagen.

This shop is a very interesting guild of designers, mostly ceramic, and if it wasn’t for how annoying it is carrying suitcases, I would have bought some very interesting pieces.

The shop is quite open and you can find lots of ceramics scattered around.

I really regret not having bought these cool egg cups, if anybody knows who the designer is, please leave a comment.

Pieces by Malene Helbak are everywhere.
Jane Holmberg is amongst my favourites.
Finnsdottir makes very interesting ceramics, many of which I can’t really find a purpose for, but they are still very appealing. Now you can find them in Heals in London.

Other shops worth visiting are Hay  for furniture and the huge Illums Bolighus right in the city centre. The last one is one of the biggest department stores full of Danish design and a very interesting section of kitchenware.

For more information there are links under most photos to the designer’s websites. Many of them are in Danish but you can also visit Designer Zoo on Facebook.
