a second day of 3daysofdesign - along Bredgade

Rud. Rasmussen on Bredgade in Copenhagen


Bredgade in Copenhagen, in the 18th-century part of the city, runs from the large square of Kongens Nytorv to the Kastellet and has a number of well-established galleries; the auction house of Bruun Rasmussen; some of the finest antique shops in the city and several major design stores.

At the city end of the street is the furniture store and show room of Carl Hansen & Søn and next to them the cabinet making company Rud. Rasmussen, now also owned by Carl Hansen, and nearby Klassik, who sell original furniture from the 20th century, and all three with special events for 3daysofdesign.

My day continued with a look at nyt i bo the furniture store on the parallel street, Store Kongensgade, and then on to the design companies now at Frederiksgade 1, a grand apartment building above the furniture store. After that, and as a contrast, it was on to the design gallery Atelier September and, for the last stop of the day, a ‘pop-up’ exhibition in an apartment overlooking the church of St Nicholas … a work by the artist Pernille Egeskov with the title Hjem or Home. The exhibition was an important collaboration between the furniture company Fritz Hansen, the family company of Dinesen and Georg Jensen Damask.
