COPENHAGEN - Flawless in design, yet always remaining unpretentious, here that effortless Danish chic blends with a certain rawness that nonetheless remains cosy – or should we say hygge – at its core.

As with an inherent sense for Feng Shui, Copenhagen strikes an inimitable balance between its philosophical heart as the birthplace of Existentialism

and a rough-and-ready that a city can only exude after sitting down to the table with a good few drunken sailors.

An environmentalist with a taste for fine living and rebellion, think of Copenhagen as that guy or girl you used to see around who studied philosophy, drank black coffee, and collected tattoos, only more approachable.

Søren Aabye Kierkegaard posed the question of Either/Or; here you can have it all.

They don’t call it THE HAPPIEST CITY ON EARTH for nothing.

LIVING ON THE EDGE TIPS:

Radio
where New Nordic Cuisine sourced from the restauranteurs’ own organic fields, local fishermen, and farmers is served up in a modern atmosphere that is 100% welcoming and 0% soulless.
Julius Thomsens Gade 12
1632 Copenhagen V

42RAW
will refuel your depleted energies with pure raw goodness. Intrigued by the sound of raw lasagne? Then don’t miss 42RAW!
Pilestræde 32

Noma
Dinner can get a little expensive at this Michelin starred restaurant, but if you’re eating at the 2-time winner of the S. Pellegrino Best Restaurant in the World Award, you’re getting more than a meal; you’re getting an experience.
Strandgade 93, 1401 Copenhagen

Bullitt - Fast Cargo Bikes
White Line Hotels collaborator Bullitt, from Larry vs. Harry, have a quirky sense of humour and the fastest cargo bikes on the planet.

Frederiksborggade 41, 1360 Copenhagen K

Relæ
is where chef Christian Puglisi (formally of Noma) is now serving up more New Nordic Cuisine, also from locally sourced ingredients, but here with prices that will make your hat land a little closer to you when they knock it off your head.

The Coffee Collective
is - according to you - the best coffee place in town.

I Min Mors Lomme
If you have young kids — or just one that you can spoil as if they were you own — don’t miss this shop. Their super cute and sometimes very imaginative collection of clothing and toys are sometimes even homemade by Mille, who owns the shop. Yes, there’s a few items for Mama too.
Vesterbrogade 180, 1800 Frederiksberg C

Torvehallerne
is the newest destination for foodies in Copenhagen — it just opened on the 2nd of September. Supposedly inspired by Barcelona’s La Boqueria, Torvehallerne’s 2 large halls are, in fact, quite unique.

FRINGE LIVING

'Fringe Living' is our take on living in the familiar metropolis with fresh pair of edited eyes – we want to explore the places firmly off any general tourist radar, where, even in the biggest of cities - you can still find flavours of local living – a lovely dose of individualismus.

OUR COLLABORATOR

When it comes to interiors, some people always seem to have more chairs in their home than they know what to do with. For others, it’s lamps.

Whichever type you are, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to design-heaven at DESIGN BY US
