It’s not the first time we talk about Danielle Siggerud in the blog (and it probably won’t be the last). We then said – when featuring MD Townhouse – that the architect, who owns an MAA from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark and has previously worked with renowned architect John Pawson in London, was a breath of fresh air. This new project only reinforces our opinion.
In Copenhagen, in the new Nordhavn district that opens to the sea, Menu Space Cafe is part of the Menu Space project. Danielle Siggerud has managed to give a sense of delicacy to a raw and industrial interior. Its feminine aesthetic softens the hardness of the cement, steel, and marble while maintaining its original strength.
A sophisticated drape divides the cafeteria between the exhibition hall and the office space. The striking form of the Androgyne Side Tables (also designed by Danielle) cannot be overlooked. The lamps and seats create a sensual play of geometric shapes that captivate the viewer. And, as is already characteristic of the firm, there is a perfect balance in the juxtaposition of massive architecture, firm and heavy, with the delicacy and elegance that few know how to combine as she does.
