Erik Jørgensen invites visitors to its Copenhagen showroom, where the Home and Contract collections are now gathered together under one roof. The showroom exhibition has been curated with carefully selected works of art, concentrating on Danish female artisans.

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.
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.
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.Light installation by Ida Blichfeld
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.EJ 3-U Eyes Lounge Wood, art by Röd Studio
The eight artists showcased in the Erik Jørgensen showroom represent a wide range of styles, but one thing they have in common is spectacular craftsmanship.
