Ole Palsby Design - Ravnsborg Tværgade 7, Copenhagen

 

Recently, there have been several posts here about Ole Palsby Design so it might be useful to show the shop and display space that was opened in Copenhagen 18 months ago. This is in a new development - an infill or replacement building in a well-established street - with shops below and apartments above. The deliberately stark interior of the display space, with the use of exposed concrete, provides a foil for the designs that reinforces the strongly rational and functional starting point for these pieces.

Ravnsborg Tværgade is on the west side of the lakes, just over Dronning Louises Bro (Queen Louise's Bridge) so on the side of the lakes away from the centre of the city, and just one block away from the busy through fare of Nørrebrogade. For visitors new to Copenhagen or not familiar with this part of the city, the streets here, including Ravnborggade, Sankt Hans Gade leading up to the square and the blocks beyond the square are well worth exploring with established antique shops - several selling furniture and glass and ceramics and lighting from the mid 20th century - and a growing number of private galleries and design studios.

Before visiting Ole Palsby Design check with their own web site for the days and times for opening.
