Great Danes

The menus of Copenhagen’s restaurants have been revolutionized in recent years by the ‘Nordic Manifesto’, which uses fresh, regional ingredients to dynamic effect.

 

Noma, Geranium and Kadeau have been placed front and centre in world cuisine as the city continues to collect Michelin stars. As chefs precisely marry Danish dining traditions with global influences, Denmark’s reputation for food just keeps getting bigger.

 

And, of course, it’s not just about the food. In a country where design has been elevated to the status of a religion, then naturally the tableware will be beautiful. Century Design has created a portfolio of a collection of Denmark’s finest.

Featured Designer – Erik Magnussen

The Danish designer, Erik Magnussen, was born in Copenhagen in 1940. He studied ceramics at the School of Applied Arts and Design, Copenhagen, and graduated with a silver medal in 1960. After working for the highly esteemed Danish porcelain industry, Magnussen branched out, re-thinking traditional designs by simplifying their complexity and enhancing their beauty with a new, modern aesthetic.

 

His tabletop and furniture designs are globally renowned and you will see exhibits of his work in museums all over the world. He has received many awards and acknowledgements for his work, including several for the famous EM77 Vacuum Jug, for Stelton A/S. The thermal coffee jug cleverly opens and closes automatically when tilted and consists of very few parts that click together. View the iconic EM77 range available through Century Design
