February 23th-25th I was invited to visit and photograph the Vipp Loft in Copenhagen. Vipp Loft is located in the same building as the company’s Copenhagen headquarter; an old printing factory in the industrial area of Islands Brygge.
The Danish design company Vipp employed Studio David Thulstrup to create “a multi -functional and holistic home environment” beneath the original oak rafters of the factory’s loft area on 400m2.
The space is large enough to accommodate a mozzanine containing a study and library which are connected by a bridge to a dark, secluded bedroom. The open-plan living area i arranged around a freestand Vipp kitchen. Vintage furniture and diverse artworks create the feel of a “mini museum of contemporary art and design”.
Vipp was founded more than 75 years ago by Holger Nielsen, who developed the first bin for his wife’s hair salon. The pedal bin is now in MoMA’s permanent collection and the company is run by Holger’s daughter Jette Egelund, along with her two children Kasper and Sofie. It has 15 employes.
I had a very lovely time spending the weekend in this stunning Vipp Loft. It’s obvious that every little detail, materials and all the design interiors have been carefully chosen for this space with such a cool yet cozy atmosphere.

October 25th-27th I felt lucky to visit and photography the iconicl Hôtel Vernet in Paris. The hotel is located in the 8th arrondissement close to Arc de Triomphe, Avenue George V., Grand Palais and Chailot museums. The once traditional Hôtel Vernet has been transformed by Paris based architect Francois Champsaur into a sleek new 50-room boutique hotel. Housed in a post Hausmann building that dates from 1917, the exterior is the embodiment of Parisian charm, which complements the fresh modernity that lies within. I really felt at home met by the kind and helpsome staff in the reception. The hotel has a comfortable lounge bar, an excellent modern restaurant and the generously sized bedrooms mix natural wood, colouful throws and jazzy bathrooms. The beautiful furnitured bedroom really made me feel for spending a relaxing time in this gorgeous hotel. All design interior has obviously been carefully choosen for this gorgeopus hotel. The spectacular restaurant has a breathtaking glass dome designed by civil engineerGustave Eiffel a century ago.

The hotel is dressing in the corner of rue Faubour Montmartre and rue Geoffroy Marie in the heart of the 9th district in Paris. The hotels is not far away from the Grands Boulevards, theaters everywhere, lovely restaurants and almost neighbor to the beautiful Montmartre with a stunning view over the French capital.
I felt very comfortable and cozy staying at this unique hotel with a very playful modern design interior, a touch of Art Nouveau and so many carefully choosen retro details everywhere. A gorgeous lobby area where I was enjoying my afternoon tea while sitting in the rust plush coaches feeling the cozy atmosphere.

I had the most delicious and healthy breakfast at David Lanher’s adjacent restaurant. Likewise I had a fabulous dinner in ditto restaurant with localy sourced food at affordable prices. I can warmly recommend to try it.
