ferm Living x Agern

Ferm Living has joined forces on a series of images created with Icelandic chef, Gunnar Gíslason of New Nordic restaurant Agern, in NYC. Agern is a part of the Danish Claus Meyer’s ventures in the USA. The lovely series of images combine Agern’s exclusive signature dishes, served and photographed on ferm LIVING‘s series of tableware Neu and Sekki, the Ripple Glass series, Asymmetric Cutting Boards, and Fein cutlery which are linked down below.

“Agern has proved continually that not only do they care about the great craftsmanship of the food and focus on detail but that they combine this with a strong vision of how the scene should be shaped in the future. This is a strategy that we can recognise in ourselves, and the agreement between us felt like a natural fit,” Trine Andersen, founder of and creative director at ferm, says.

Nærvær is the newest, delicious design destination in Copenhagen

Copenhagen-based Norm Architects has done it again, designing a warm and dark space that translates to intimate and cosy.


The newly designed wine bar and restaurant Nærvær, which translates to Neighborhood, is in the Christianshavn area of the city, has a view the nearby canal and the old city centre beyond. With a dark wood wrapped, centrally located kitchen, guests get a front row seat to the preparation of meals by Yves Le Lay and crew.


“This conscious focus on tactility brings a warm, material richness to the interior that naturally compliments the raw concrete walls and industrial framework of the space,” says Norm.


Lighting was designed by Norm Architects and made from oil-burned steel frames and slender tubular diffusers that give off a warm and gentle brightness.




Potted plants and trees add a natural and bright feeling to the naturally lit corner in the bar along with delicate, dried flowers complementing the specially commissioned pottery and dishes made Danish ceramist Maj-Brit Würtz.
