Vermland designs Japanese-inspired interior with long-table dinner concept for HVERDAGEN restaurant
HVERDAGEN is a new restaurant located next to the vibrant area Kødbyen in Copenhagen. The owners want to introduce everyday food in an experimenting and sustainable way based on 100% organic ingredients. Thus they approached Vermland, architects and craftsmen, who design and manufacture furniture based on local and long-lasting materials.
“All furniture is made entirely from the same douglas tree, designed and handcrafted by our studio and joinery. By using simple technics inspired by Japanese craftsmanship we showcase high-end furnitures in an everyday setting. We try our best to design and manufacture furniture based on local and long lasting materials that we believe will continue contributing to its environment for many decades to come. The center piece of the space is a long table hanging from the timber frame construction in the middle of the room that divides the café into smaller zones with different functions. The goal was to be able to host social everyday long table dinners while at the same time allow people to stop by for a more intimate café experience. We see how more and more people are asking to share their food when being out on restuarents. This experience concept resembles a casual dinner at home where you have one or two shared pots instead of single plates. We love this intimate way of eating together and wanted to embrace it by placing a long table as a center piece in the room. Another highlight is a shelf system covering the entire back wall in the building making it blend in with the existing wood structure. The client wanted to showcase some of the organic food and the fermenting process involved when making the ingredients,” explain Anton Bak and Joakim Tolf Vulpius, Co-founders of Vermland
