This weekend saw the global debut of an exciting new name in Danish design, Audo Copenhagen.
The uniting of two of my own much-loved favourites, Menu and by Lassen, Audo Copenhagen, or simply Audo as it’s being called for short, will see both collections of incredible furniture, lighting, and home accessories sold and showcased together for the very first time.
With historic designs, many of which I’ve written about on this blog before, by the likes of Ib Kofod-Larsen, Vilhelm Lauritzen, Flemming and Mogens Lassen, along with their celebrated contemporary collaborations with Norm Architects, Colin King and Danielle Siggerud, I’m sure this historic merger will prove to be significant as well as extremely successful.
“Audo Copenhagen will offer the same world class design and collaborations that fans and followers of Menu, The Audo and by Lassen have come to expect.” Joachim Kornbek-Engell Hansen, Design & Brand Director for Audo Copenhagen
Reflecting the name of Menu’s Nordhavn home, The Audo, a must-visit hot spot for anyone with a fondness for modern, soft minimalist design, this too will also be renamed to Audo House.
This former merchant’s residence, with its striking red façade, is just a 5-minute metro ride from the centre of Copenhagen. An inspirational mix of hotel, café, meeting space, material library, showroom and store, since it opened in 2019 it has quickly become a hub for creativity and community.
“Audo House reflects Audo Copenhagen’s collaborative spirit. Redefining how we use design, space and, ultimately, how we connect to one another, it’s a creative destination for powerful ideas, beautiful design and inspiration.” Joachim Kornbek-Engell Hansen, Design & Brand Director for Audo Copenhagen
