The city area Østerbro is known to be a quiet residential part of Copenhagen. Østerbro’s main street Østerbrogade offers quite a few shopping possibilities and Østerbro really stands out as paradise for food lovers, offering a wide selection of delis, fine food stores, cafés and fancy restaurants. Besides being a true Mecca for foodies, Østerbro also offers interesting and diverse manufacturing and shopping experiences, and we would like to show you some of the very best workshops that Østerbro has to offer.
This tour can look like this (example only):
We start off at Kristianiagade, where we will be introduced to SeeYouLater, which is a design studio that specializes in developing paper products for children. The two architects Ms. Sille Avlund and Ms. Charlotte Søeborg Ohlsen founded SeeYourLater with a desire to show that simple designs based on carefully chosen colours and materials animate the imaginary world of children.
After the visit at SeeYouLater, we walk to Dag Hammerskjölds Alle, where we will find the interesting shop Samarkand. Samarkand owner, Ms. Jane Eberlein, has designed and manufactured her own exotic fur hats and accessories since 1978. As an educated textile conservator in oriental embroidery and carpets, she has a rich background and knowledge of Oriental cultures, which she knows how to bring to her creations in the very best way.
Next, we will walk to Willemoesgade where we will meet and greet the upholsterer Mette Palsteen. From a beautiful old building, Ms. Palsteen is running a modern upholstery, where she and her team still practices the proud traditional craftsmanship that lies within upholstering.
Finally, we will walk to Classensgade where we will be introduced to the Goldsmith Ragnar R. Jørgensen. Ragnar graduated as a goldsmith back in 1995, and his talent has led him to work abroad in countries like USA, Norway and Sweden. The exquisite jewelry from Ragnar is highly refined, and its aesthetics brings you back to the Czarist Russia, where sparkling gems, diamonds and bright enamels are united in precious metals like gold and platinum.
