The second one walks through the narrow door to the large flat, the effect is palpable. The city noise is gone, and one is welcomed by the pleasant smell of wood. This is a haven of calm. And inspiration. The flat is richly decorated with modern art, exclusive furniture and, not least, bespoke solutions in wood.
After serving as a private home for a number of years, the large flat in the heart of Copenhagen is now a Dinesen Home, which captures the essence of the family-run company: the passion for wood, architecture and design, the high level of quality, close client relationships and the desire to provide a source of inspiration.
The British designer Anouska Hempel created the basis for an extraordinary Dinesen universe more than ten years ago when she designed this exquisite home with Dinesen Douglas floors combined with one-off furniture in the same material.
Attention has been paid to every single detail in the redesign of Dinesen Home. The indirect light, which is a signature feature for the designer, creates an evocative setting for the many elements to be explored. The books on architecture, art and photography in the small office. The plank table, which has been dyed with Linseed Oil in the colour note Paris Blue, as an homage to another inspiring metropolis. World-class glass and photographic art. Wild flowers and grass.
To embrace both the past and the future, the flat is furnished with customised classics as well as modern Danish and international furniture. The mood is Nordic and light but with international substance and appeal.
In 2016, Dinesen Home won a Wallpaper* Design Award in the ‘Best Apartment’ category.
‘The apartment is a shrine to Scanid modernism and the silken beauty of the Douglas fir.’
– Paul McCann, Wallpaper
This is a unique place that feels like home. It has character and beautiful furniture, but the most eye-catching design element is still the long, wide Douglas planks, which are extraordinary by nature. Precisely as Anouska Hempel envisioned the flat.
Access to Dinesen Home is limited to special occasions.
