Located on the first floor of La Maison du Danemark is Copenhague, a more formal restaurant where Chef Andreas Moller prepares unique Scandinavian specialties. Now one of the most popular restaurants in Paris, Copenhague offers creative cuisine, spectacular views and a fit-out that’s to die for! Unlike Flora Danica, Copenhague is draped in darker, more intense colours and textures. The walls are lined with Gubi’s Cobra Lamps while the large-scale mirrors are based on the same design concept as their TS Collection.
I have this strange idea that dark or navy blues and black don’t go together. I don’t know where this aversion came from but I think it stems from my grandfather who touted “thou shall not wear black shoes with a blue suit”. I’m not even sure if that’s a thing. Anyway, fashion is one thing because the combination of blue and black in this fit-out is oh so good! I’m happy to be proven wrong in this case where the two tones create an intense and beguiling impression. Dark blue leather, Raf Simons for Kvadrat textiles and deep blue curtains and tablecloths bring the visitors deep into an intimate atmosphere. The only touch of white is a series of white porcelain plates that are a collaboration with Royal Copenhagen and GamFratesi.
With their dual traditional background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi have created furniture and spaces that respectfully reflect tradition while also emphasise unique stories, symbols and associations. The newly renovated interior at La Maison du Danemark combines a wonderful fusion of modern Danish elegance with a refined French influence.
