Wallpaper* Danish Christmas Market in London
20 Dec 2016
Wallpaper* launched a Christmas Market, inspired by the Danish principle of hygge – which translates as an atmosphere of calm togetherness and enjoyment of simple pleasures – a section of King's Cross' Granary Square in London was transformed into an impressive pavilion designed by Danish architects 3XN, inspired by both the Wallpaper* asterisk and the complex structure of snowflakes. The market was a celebration of Danish creativity and craftsmanship.
These beautifully intricate constructions 'create a flexible structure, where modules, which can be assembled without any adhesive, can "crystallise" in different directions using very few components’, explains Kim Herforth Nielsen, creative director of 3XN. These architectural delights are illuminated by Tivoli Lights, along with Danish stove company Morsø, whose outdoor fires are available for your every s'more toasting need.
