Ever thought about a dream office to work at in the most stylish environment? Well, the Danish Fashion and Textile Association office will probably bring you very close. There might be a trend brought up by Danish culture. Their headquarters look more than a private apartment than a showroom or office itself. I guess by now you have all seen the images of the Muuto offices in Copenhagen (if not, have a look here).
Architect and designer Helle Flou, founder of quite new Copenhagen-based studio HelleFlou, was responsible for the design of these offices now. The studio works within fashion, retail, housing, hotel, restaurants, and offices.
My first impression when seeing the mid high open workspaces was of rather being skeptical and I still am, to be honest (must be a freelancer thing :-) But if the briefing was of an open working area with several departments to live close by, it has been solved and executed in a brilliant way. It looks really stylish, feels like being home, and you have much more private space when sitting desk to desk.
I have a closer eye on Danish design since I went to Copenhagen in May, it is probably one of the hottest markets right now when it comes to spot new trends, and these offices, I believe will mark a turning point for future projects.
