Griffen Shop – A Holy Trinity

In the very heart of Copenhagen’s vibrant city area, Nørrebro, you’ll find a small interior design shop called Griffen Shop.
Griffen Shop is based on a unique concept, where the shop is an extension of Griffen Studios and Griffen Workshop, where the furniture is designed and produced. The combination of design studio, workshop and store gives Griffen Shop the opportunity of designing, producing and selling products at the same place. This particular trinity provides Griffen Shop’s customers, with the possibility to custom-made their products.

Custom-made interior designs, at IKEA-prices

The architect Lotte Nørregaard runs the little shop on Griffenfeldsgade 22, and in the shop you’ll find her designs within interior design. However, Griffen Shop’s real talent lies within distributing custom-made interior, at reasonable prices.
To help Griffen Shop on delivering custom-made interior designs, the little shop teamed up with a very powerful tool called a CNC-cutter (Computer Numerical Control). The CNC-cutter is basically a cutter that allows you to transform digital drawing material into regular objects.
Instead of printing on regular paper, the machine cuts out the drawings directly on the material you want. The cut-outs are very, very accurate, and that actually just leaves you with assembling your design. This process saves you from going to an actual carpenter, and that certainly affects the price. Griffen Shop seeks to craft unique, custom-made interior design that’s actually able to compete price-wise with the mass-produced furniture from IKEA.

Sustainable interior design by Griffen Shop

The “trinity” concept that lies within Griffen Shop simplifies logistics and costs. Griffen Shop does not use storage, transportation and packaging. Therefore Griffen Shop can compete with mass production rates and significantly reduce the CO2 footprint.

Griffen Shops designs are using materials from a single source that helps reducing the delivery time. The material is primarily birch plywood from FSC-certified forests.

Rock the Shack CPHmade Griffenshop Eentileen architecture design houses cocoons

Written and edited by S. Ehmann and S. Borges, ”Rock the Shack” is presenting to us everything “from weekend homes to get-away cabins” and is an unspoken invitation to relaxation out in the nature. It is simultaneously a collection of the most basic to the finest, yet most compelling, furnished cabins, cottages and shelters, tree houses and even cocoons, crafted by the most talented architects. The book is focused on unique geographic locations, that compile individual, distinct places, put under the light by the exceptional furnishing they come together with.

Featured in the book you will find the ”Mormor kaffebord” (En.: ”Grandma’s coffee table”) and the ”Pendel 1” lamp, designed by Griffenshop, and Eentileen’s unconventional construction-concepts of houses.

For a closer insight on the book’s content, here is a link to the book.

3 sustainable furniture designers in CPHmade

sustainable furniture designers in CPHmade Copenhagen

In Denmark we are very proud of our traditions within furniture design. Great designers like Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl, Arne Jacobsen and Hans Jørgen Wegner made Danish furniture design famous by its clean, minimalistic and simple design.

For a very long time Danish furniture design has been recognized by these heroes, and made it difficult for upcoming furniture designers to break through. But for the last couple of years the Danish furniture design has developed, and is now concentrated on long-living traditions, crafted in a contemporary world. Furniture design is of course primary an aesthetical experience, but the craftsmanship behind furniture design is really in focus these days. The increased focus on global warming, and green environment has indeed spread into all kinds of business and craftsmanship. Furniture design is no exception, and today we see an enlarged focus on sustainability in the crafting process. At CPHmade, we are very pleased to have members on board that are concerned about the environment, and craft furniture designs from a sustainable point of view.
