Goodbye and good luck...

Today is a sad day as we have to say goodbye to Lukas, our intern for the last four months. It has been a great pleasure to have him at the studio, and if anyone out there needs a good designer (and based in Austria 'cause he miss the mountains) give him a call. All the best to you kid - best intern ever!

Taking a bite of the Big Apple...

So it's finally out; legendary food entrepreneur Claus Meyer is going to NY, establishing a food court and a new restaurant at Grand Central Station. Working alongside Christina Meyer Bengtsson, HolmbäckNordentoft is going to make it happen and look good! We're pretty exited to say the least...

Congratulations!

Today the Michelin guide announced that Restaurant Studio and Torsten Vildgaard have earned themselves a star! That's some feat having only been open for four months! Big applause to Torsten and his team. Must have something to do with the beautiful interior (by one Mrs. Meyer and guess-who design studio....)

Welcome 2014...

The new year is here and we're enjoying it already! Not least because Danish newspaper Berlingske named us "Designers that rocked 2013" in one of their final issues of '13. We'll do our best to rock even harder in '14. Happy new year out there!

While it was still hot and summerly, journalist Chieko Tomita and talented photographer Kazuma Takigawa came by for lunch in the studio. Read the full story in japanese magazine "with CASA"...

How often do you get the chance to change the color of an iconic building?

Not often - but with the renovation of the old customs building in central Copenhagen we did. An intense but soft green has replaced the former brownish color, giving the building from 1937 the expression it deserves.

This week sees the opening of The Standard, which is the new name for the house which has three new restaurants and a jazz club. Together with Mrs. Meyer Bengtsson we've made the interior for two of them; Almanak and Studio. Check them out under work..

New product 2...

Also just launched is our new thermos series called EMMA - also from STELTON. And to all you tea lovers out there; this is the s...! Not only will it keep your tea warm for at least six hours, but our innovative smart filter lets you stop the brewing of the tea whenever you want, without having to discard the tea leaves until the thermos is empty! Video coming soon...

New Meyer's...

Next week see's the opening of "Meyer's in Lyngby" just north of Copenhagen. At the test-pre-open today we tried some great pizza from the wood fired oven and some delicious juices with nordic flavors. And then of course there's the very cool interior...
