THE COLLECTION ASSEMBLED UNDER ONE ROOF

Barely three years ago, Erik Jørgensen moved into Bredgade 76, a historic house in the heart of Copenhagen. At that time, it was exclusively the brand’s Home collection that was displayed there, while the Contract collection continued to be exhibited at Pakhus 48 in Copenhagen’s North Harbour. But in the last months of 2019, Erik Jørgensen assembled its showroom exhibition under one roof.

The ground floor of the house showcases Erik Jørgensen’s universe, while Montana has moved to the first floor. Along with designs from the Contract collection, carefully selected works of art have also found a home in the furniture showroom.

A VIBRANT AND COLOURFUL SHOWROOM

Erik Jørgensen’s new premises are curated by architect and designer Anne Boysen, who together with Erik Jørgensen has chosen to display art from a number of selected female artisans: Stine Mikkelsen, the duo behind Röd Studio, Maja Karen from Lerkenfeldt Gallery, Iben Birch Bech, Kristine Engelbrecht (A Hint of Neon), Mette Schelde, Sofie Aabenhus, Ida Blichfeld and Frederikke Lemche. Their art contributes to a vibrant and colourful showroom, ranging from framed collages and wooden reliefs to light installations.

THE EXPERIENCE

of eight artists

In the showroom, works from these nine artists can be viewed and visitors will experience a sense of coherence as they walk through the rooms. With art playing a dominant role in the styling, the premises feels united whether you are exploring the Home or Contract collection.

The representation of female artisans

By having works of art from eight female artisans adorn the showroom, Erik Jørgensen taps into a highly discussed topic: the representation of female artisans in Danish museums. According to a new study by the Organization of Danish Museums (ODM), female artisans are greatly under-represented in Danish museums. This has started a public debate about how they might achieve greater prominence.
