Time for tea
Upon entering the New Works showroom at Frederiksgade 1, dark, dusty blue walls and ceilings instantly envelop you and along with the soft blue carpeted floors, courtesy of Ege Carpets, their infinite depth creates a muted sense of quiet and calm. The blue is echoed throughout the upholstery colour scheme and these cool tones ranging from indigo to midnight blue are perfectly paired with warm walnut and smoked oak. In the imposing corner room, custom room dividers in wood and textile offer a sense of privacy while allowing the light to still spread throughout the room. During the design days, this particular room was acting as a tea room for intimate ceremonies conducted by IO, a small Copenhagen tea house owned by Yukiko and Simon. One quickly forgets time and place when watching Yukiko’s flowing and precise movements as she meticulously prepares the brews.
