Brøchner Hotels is behind the five-star luxury hotel Herman K in the heart of Copenhagen. The hotel is located on Bremerholm and is built in what used to be an old transformer station. The raw exterior and interior has been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel with 31 rooms, a three-story restaurant run by Michelin-people from the Restaurant Kadeau, a bar and top class service.
The room types range from the intimate Tiny to the Penthouse Suite on two floors and with a private rooftop terrace. All decorated to reflect the hotel’s distinctiveness, where design and art contrast with the raw concrete ceiling and the protected bronze slats from the time when the building served as a transformer station. Lighting by Rubn – design by Niclas Hoflin.

In 2014, Kilo and BIG worked together with Cofoco and Hz on Llama Restaurant & Bar, transforming a dark, impersonal basement into in an open space that’s generously connected to the city. The walls and floors are lined with handcrafted Mexican cement tiles, melding iconic design influences from Latin America with Copenhagen cool.
Llama in Copenhagen introduces a menu inspired by South America and can accommodate up to 180 guests. Here you can savour on countries like Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile and Mexico, but there is still respect for the Nordic roots and commodities.
The interior design carries a number of main drivers — colourful tiles, black furniture, a vibrant green wall, and brass light fixtures — that together create a spatial configuration that’s conducive to linked experiences throughout the restaurant. Llama won gold at the International Design Award 2015 for “interior design” in the catergory “conceptual”. The lights used throughout the restaurant and bar are from Rubn – designed by founder Niclas Hoflin.

Rubn supplied the lighting – all the lamps are connected in a beautiful brass construction in the attic of the restaurant.
A whole new dimension was added to the Swedish sausage culture when innovator, gastronome and restaurateur, Ricard Constantinou, opened the Printz restaurant in 2013 in Johanneshov, four kilometres south of Stockholm city center. The restaurant lies in a large new complex named Tolv, due to the 12 different restaurants the center houses.
When he established Printz in the former slaughterhouse area of Stockholm, Constantinou wanted to preserve and refine the district’s centuries-old sausage tradition. Over 100 different types of sausages are served at Printz – including fish and vegetarian versions – produced in the sausage factory which is part of the package, as is the wide selection of beers. Printz is also where Sweden’s Pølseakademi (sausage academy) meets, and a sausage library is planned, to promote knowledge of and interest in this culinary specialty.
As is typical for Ricard Constantinou, the architectural and design aspects of the restaurant are fully on par with the culinary ideas and uncompromising quality. The large restaurant is divided into different sections, offering various setting to match the diners’ mood and preferences. The lights used throughout the restaurant are from Rubn – designed by founder Niclas Hoflin.
London practice Amos and Amos has created a collaborative workspace in a former Gothenburg shipbuilding warehouse for the digital agency AKQA that references traditional Swedish architecture.
The vertical wooden planks were inspired by the traditional cladding on Gothenburg’s buildings, while the blackened wood was inspired by the cabins that stud Sweden’s archipelagos. By fusing the two the office became more comtemporary.
The former shipbuilding warehouse was stripped out completely before creating the office space within the original footprint. Overall the theory was to keep the space as open as it could be and instead have zones within that for collaborative workareas with flexible desk spaces.
The office furniture was carefully selected from Scandinavian design companies including Rubn.
