Welcome to my friend, Mark Tan's Copenhagen based showroom. He recently painted his walls in Corso Clay, -one of the 9 colors, I've made in collaboration with Keim Scandinavia. Originally, I made this tone for my shop, and over the past couple of years, it has been tried and tested -both in Store Strandstræde, and in my own home. The conclusion is, that this shade is super easy to combine with other colors, and it is here to stay! The tone is a light grey, with a violet-tinged undertone, that creates an inviting, yet neutral backdrop. I aimed to give all 9 colors a warm undertone, that will welcome you in any room, with a warm hug.
Mark is, besides, being a very old man, trapped in a young persons body, one of my closest friends, and runs his own beautiful shop in Store Strandstræde, that is worth a visit. Mark has the driest sense of humor, he will always tell you the uncovered truth, and he loves sweets so much, that he will steal the dessert from your plate, if he is close enough. He is a perfectionist, but the kind of perfectionist, who always spills his meals, on his freshly steamed, perfectly styled outfits. Besides, he is one of the most talented and original designers, we have in Denmark, and he has the kind of understanding for quality, that can not really be bought.
Nano, Mark's little fluff of the cutest dog, is often seen carried around in one of our Large Filippo bags. Nano says he loves Corso Clay too.
The glass vase is vintage and mouth blown is Sweden in the 60s. I found it for my own home a few years back, but Mark kept emphasizing, not hinting, that this vase was his ONLY birthday wish, and voilà, it ended up at Marks place.
The aluminium chair is designed by my boyfriend, Thomas Gayet and kindly borrowed from him.
