Studio x Viaduct’s New Home

Combined design studio, showroom and store, studio x viaduct is settling in and breathing out in its new Copenhagen home. The studio has found a corner of its own on Dronningens Tværgade in the city center; a quieter offshoot from the crowded legacy design strip Bredgade.

The studio is a collaboration between studio x director Kirstine Meier Carlsen and the London-based showroom Viaduct, established by James Mair in 1991. A constellation of furniture, lighting and objects are hand-picked for their independent value and then edited by Kirstine into design concepts that complement. “Our starting point is always to create spaces to be lived in, to be resided in: with an accessible form and with a clear attitude and understanding of materials,” says Kirstine.

Now nestled in the Dronningegården modernist complex, the new showroom will allow studio x’s collaborators the space to develop their ideas and showcase. For their opening exhibition during Copenhagen’s 3daysofdesign, the studio teamed with new MAZŌ design brand to relaunch Magnus Læssøe Stephensen’s classic furniture pieces in Bauhaus upholstery.

Distributing space through curation has remained at the core of studio x’s philosophy throughout its manifestations and locations. The studio was formerly in a limiting location in Hovedvagtsgade off Kongens Nytorv and utilized the pop-up concept the challenge itself. Now, with two floors to play with, Kirstine’s impeccable taste finally has the room to stretch and flex.
