Restaurant as Enchanted Forest, Copenhagen Edition

December 10, 2013 8:00 PM

BY Julie Carlson

Noma cofounder Claus Meyer (known as one of the founding fathers of New Nordic cuisine) is the force behind the newly opened waterfront jazz club/restaurant/bar the Standard, which encompasses a jazz club and not one but three restaurants. The ground floor restaurant, designed by Danish-Italian design team GamFratesi, is called (appropriately enough) Verandah, and features a modern greenhouse vibe. 

Above: GamFratesi used Beetle chairs from Copenhagen furniture company Gubi paired with classic cast-iron cafe tables.

Above: The designers used a cool palette of grays and blues in the interior.

Above: The room is lined with custom banquettes.

Above: A row of Orient pendants from Lightyears, originally created for Fog & Morup and consisting of a copper body with a rosewood top, illuminates the dining room.

Above: Gubi produced a special-edition Beetle bar stool for the interior.

Above: The restaurant is housed in a 1930s custom house on Copenhagen’s waterfront.
