Paustian design store has a superb location on Nordhavn that looks across the marina towards the Svanemølle power station. The company was founded in 1964 and their building on Kalkbrænderiløbskaj was designed by Jorn Urtzon and completed in 1987.
They produce furniture themselves, particularly for offices and commercial contracts, but have a World-wide reputation for the collection of international design that is shown in Copenhagen. They are exclusive distributors here for Herman Miller and for Vitra and therefore for furniture from Artek but show a wide range of international brands including Asplund, Cappelini, Moooi and Thonet.
For their stand at northmodern they emphasised this international aspect of their collection with a line of desks covered with art and architecture books, magazines, artefacts and small sculptures and with classic chairs from their collection pulled up on either side. It was the study or studio dreamed about by anyone obsessed by design.
