The project that first put Aspekt Office’s aesthetic on the map is the Normann Copenhagen flagship store and showroom, a boldly colored artistic design concept for the Danish brand that sells furniture, lamps, and home accessories. Two more recent projects are the interior design of clothing brand BLS Hafnia’s retail space and the flagship store for Chinese retailer OCE, both located in Copenhagen. They are a visual treat that speak to the pair’s playfulside, where aesthetic simplicity and high functionality are shown through expressive and sharp designs.
With BLS Hafnia, an industrial space prioritizing shades of gray provides a neutral backdrop for the brand’s offerings, except for a smackingly-vibrant blue changing room and podium that catch the eye. “The space is quite small, which is why we went straight into a light gray for most of the materials and surfaces involved, trying to make the space look bigger by alternating aluminum to gray floor, walls, and furniture,” explains Hornemann. “Besides, the choice of the color was purposely selected to keep faith in the BLS style: rough, understated, and essential,” adds Steffensen.
