From mobile desks to classic seating, Copenhagen’s vibrant design scene shows it is always ready for business
1. Working Nomad
Paying homage to Småland’s celebrated traditions of furniture-making and craftsmanship, Mizetto has grown from the roots of the deep forests of Sweden. The family-run firm, which was set up in 2004 by Malin and Richard Muskala, takes a local and interdisciplinary approach to design, with collaborations including the likes of award-winning Swedish design studio Addi and Italian duo Nooi.
With its democratic design principles, Mizetto might embody traditional Scandinavian values, but its sights are set on the global design community and beyond Sweden’s boundaries.
Seeking to influence how work environments are designed around the globe, its offerings range far and wide: from the firm’s Traysi collection, a set of trays that help store and sort desk essentials, to its high desk Hangout (pictured), suitable for activity-based workspaces, this future-focused firm shows how good office design can boost mood and creativity. mizetto.se
2. Across the Board
Chat Board – the noticeboard specialist founded in 2003 as a joint venture between glass specialist Hans Henning Jensen and his hotelier daughter, Josefine Honoré – recently launched eye-catching new collaborations with Million’s Claus Jakobsen.
Chat Board’s modern collection of wall-mounted boards offer endless possibilities for interaction and collaboration. Elevating the everyday aesthetic of working life, Chat Board’s newly launched Classic Crafted range, which comprises four beautifully pieces, matches the natural warmth of oak wood veneer with Chat Board’s signature streamlined glass surfaces in one cohesive unit. chat-board.dk
3. True Colours
Since its acquisition of legendary design company Engelbrechts in spring 2021, Copenhagen-based brand Montana has been busy reviving a carefully curated selection of designs from Engelbrechts’ backlist. First in line is the brand’s iconic Kevi chair, which Montana is now launching in a dreamy palette of eight colours, including classic pine, black and snow, as well as bolder shades like rhubarb and shadow.
Originally dating back to 1958, when Danish architect Jørgen Rasmussen created the Kevi swivel chair on request from a company of the same name, the chair quickly went on to become an international success with the addition of double-wheel castors.
Now, after it has spent nearly 60 years on wheels, Rasmussen has also revived the classic design with the launch of a four-legged version – blending traditional elements and Danish design to create the ultimate home office chair. montanafurniture.com
