Pendulum by LIND DNA

The Pendulum is a ceiling mounted side table, that is produced as a square and a circle. In th square version you can take the tray out of the frame to use it as a standard tray. LIND DNA, the Danish company, that created Pendulum carefully selected their leather distributors for the leather matt inlay, so they only use recycled leather.

Väkst Nordic by Genbyg

The centrepiece of this garden-inspired Nordic restaurant in Copenhagen is an indoor greenhouse that Danish design studio Genbyg has created using recycled materials.

Called Väkst, the Danish word for growth, the restaurant serves a vegetable-based menu – something Genbyg was keen to represent through its design, by including natural materials and plenty of greenery.

The heart of the space is a plant-filled greenhouse covering a stairwell, which connects the restaurant’s basement and ground levels.

Framed by square-profile steel beams, the structure is built from repurposed windows, based on photographs from customers who have built their own greenhouses in a similar fashion.

Inside the dining areas, the majority of fittings and fixtures are also created using recycled materials and salvaged furniture.

Shelves behind the bar are made rom file drawers from the National Museum of Denmark’s archive, while the counter itself is constructed from old factory floorboards.

Cabinet fronts are made rom wooden planks, while lamps are formed using old milk cans, and ceiling coverings in the basement were once tablecloths.

Mahogany surfaces throughout the restaurant originated from an old grandstand at Lyngby stadium, located north of the city, and glass shelving has been repurposed from a palace in Copenhagen.
