One of the world’s most influential chefs, Denmark’s Michelin-starred Rene Redzepi, has unveiled his latest venture Restaurant 108, with interiors designed by the local duo SPACE Copenhagen.

Redzepi became famous for Noma, the restaurant he opened when he was just 25, which has been voted the best restaurant on the planet many years in a row.

108 Restaurant (located at Strandgade 108), sits next to Noma, created in partnership with Noma alumnus Kristian Baumann, who does the cooking. The new restaurant is cheaper and more casual but no less exciting as a culinary and design experience.

The design combines the building’s existing robust structural elements with bespoke furniture pieces, resulting in a distinct Scandinavian style. “We wanted to keep the strong structural elements of the tall, light space, as well as reframe the existing beautiful material palette of concrete, bricks and dark metals,” explain the designers.

SPACE Copenhagen sought to incorporate a sense of vibrancy through control use of colour. Seafoam green and midnight blue contrast and complement the use of plum red, referencing Copenhagen façades, bricks, and roofs. “When working with the various functions of the project, we started using these selected areas as colourful features and accents weaving them into the naked spaces,” explains Signe Bendslev Henrikson, co-founder of SPACE Copenhagen.
