Hej ! Velkommen !
Starting on May 20th and in parallel of the D'Days, Made in Town is donning Denmark's colors and entering a 100% design program. The workshop is welcoming within its walls the Nordkraft project which showcases Danish lifestyle essentials through Internet: selling furniture, objects, graphic art, with brands and designers typical of the Nordic spirit.
Nordkraft features a diverse range of high quality products all falling within the Danish know-how: Normann Copenhagen wooden chairs, porcelain from the iconic Royal Copenhagen house, Louise Roe's contemporary throws and pillows, Skandinavisk candles, or Playtype typographic posters.
Camilla Schousboe, a young Danish in her thirties living in Paris for the past ten years, has founded this online concept store. She wishes to share her passion for design and to help French people discover her liveful culture.
Danish design favors a simple aesthetic, with high quality finishing, sleek and soft lines, saturated colors without being garish and natural noble materials: raw wood, wool, leather, porcelain, etc. It is the promise to come back home in a sweet and kind atmosphere which expresses the meaning of four Danish words: "hygge, smil, smukt, lykkelig".
Hygge: A typically Danish word, impossible to literally translate, which evokes the feeling of well-being when surrounded by beautiful things.
Smil: Taking the bright side of life, conviviality comes first! This is a typical Danish desire to design a warm and welcoming atmosphere at home.
Smukt: Literally, everything beautiful. A beauty which is good for self and others, between functionality and aesthetic harmony.
Lykkelig: A design aiming happiness, thought for people.
From the promotion of Made in Italy products to the safeguard of the artisanal values that have made Rome famous throughout the world, AltaRoma’s mission is based on maximizing the excellence of the fabrics, from the most traditional right up to the current haute couture, through exhibitions and catwalks.
To celebrate the good days, Made in Town ends the season with a creative selection of beautiful products and good ideas to accompany you throughout the summer. Summer Inventory is showcasing colorful objects and accessories. Chosen by Made in Town, they reflect an original approach of menswear wardrobe, graphic arts and tableware, based on local production and craftsmanship Made in France or Made in Italy.
In order to promote the know-how and characteristics of the tapestry from Aubusson, the county town of the French region of Creuse, Made in Town conducted a series of three documentary videos at the request of the International City of the Tapestry and Woven art, in partnership with l’Institut français de la mode and with the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
