Hay Kitchen Market: Artful Essentials from a Copenhagen Design Duo

August 29, 2017

The Copenhagen flagship of Danish company Hay is a six-minute walk from Atelier September, the artfully low-key café from chef Frederik Bille Brahe. “We pass by everyday on our way to work,” says Hay cofounder Mette Hay. Naturally, Hay got to know Bille Brahe, and the two began to dream up a kitchen collection of their favorite things.

Bille Brahe has a distinct, unfussy style and Hay, a penchant for color and quirk. Pair the two together and you’ve got the Hay Kitchen Market, a line of everyday kitchenware based on found or reinvented objects sourced from around the world. The collection made its debut in New York earlier this week; Annie and I can verify, the goods are even better in person (we dropped by to check out the offerings).

N.B.: You can find Hay Kitchen Market products at the MoMA Design Store in SoHo, New York (with limited stock online), and in Oslo, Paris, London, Copenhagen, and Hay online in the next month.
