While we were just recently in Copenhagen we had the pleasure of eating at Höst, one of a handful of restaurants owned by Cofoco, a Danish restauranteurs company. Besides the food being pretty fantastic, the interior design was absolutely stunning. I love the minimalistic approach to Scandinavian style they chose to use. It really compliments the nordic style menu they have created here at Höst. The modern, rustic, Scandinavian interiors that make up Höst were designed by Norm Architects and Menu. These two companies are definitely leaders in Scandinavian design. I found so much inspiration within these walls. The rustic textures of the walls and ceilings adds so much warmth, plus all the great pottery and plants scattered about really draws you into the space. Serious kudos to the designers behind Höst. I’m kinda in love, is it too obvious?! HA!
You can find all the gorgeous New Norm dinnerware featured here and loads more of beautiful minimalistic items featured with their designers in Menu’s latest catalog.
Its not surprising that Höst won “The World’s Best Designed Restaurant” award by the Bar & Restaurant Design Awards in London in September of this year. What did surprise me is this would be the first time ever a Danish restaurant received the award. We visited a handful of restaurants in Copenhagen alone ( including Noma) that I felt were just beautiful, and better than some I have seen anywhere. But, I am partial to Nordic / Scandinavian style. I want to close this post with a quote from New Norm’s thoughts on Höst. Höst is “the exquisite result of clashes : romantic, yet modern, urban yet simplistic. It holds a very special place in people’s hearts because of its multiple stories, mixed inspirations and materials.” Could not have said it better myself. So, what do you think of this restaurant? Do you love Nordic style interiors? Have you ever been here? Would love to hear your thoughts / opinions on this design. Have a great weekend!
