Spine is the fusion of Fredericia's craft traditions and Space Copenhagen’s dynamic visual language that uses both classic motifs and unorthodox details.
Designed as a luxurious dining chair for both public space use and private homes. Space Copenhagen originally designed Spine for the interior design for a Michelin starred restaurant in 2011. Since then, the Spine series has proven extremely successful as a symbol of quality and craftmanship in high-end restaurants, bars, and luxury retail shops throughout the world.
As seen in several successful Copenhagen restaurants, Spine is anchored in Nordic tradition, but with an unexpected, personal twist. The simple lines are intuitively familiar, while the unorthodox details give the furniture a striking new aesthetic. Despite the contrasting elements, the top and bottom still merge into a balanced entity.
The Spine series has a solid character where the texture of the wood and upholstery are given solid emphasis. The hand-sewn upholstery for the chair is inspired by techniques that were developed at Fredericia’s workshop for Børge Mogensen’s exclusive 1960’s leather series.
Spine is a fusion of organic, solid, and modern. In designing the series, Space Copenhagen felt their way forward using their intuition, until reaching a balanced design that invites many hours of relaxation.
Fredericia and Space Copenhagen continue to expand on the Spine series, with the backless Spine Stool launched in 2014. Made in Denmark
Copenhagen design duo Space Copenhagen make headlines with their signature style of elegant, yet classical design lines infused with a contemporary edge that emerge from intuition and emotion. In their work with Fredericia, Space Copenhagen seek to rethink the upholstering traditions held at our factory for more than 100 years.
Space Copenhagen was established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou - both graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture. Their studio is known for defying habits and employing a sincere personal vision to their design.
The projects Space Copenhagen has turned their hands to include everything from interior design, to furniture and refined objects for everyday use as well as artistic installations and art direction. Their furniture ideas are often initiated in relation to interior design in the hospitality and luxury retail sector – an area where the studio has established a strong identity. Space Copenhagen has done interior design for some of the world’s most influential restaurants such as Nordic pioneer restaurant NOMA, Geranium, owned by Bóchuse D’or winner Rasmus Kofoed and newcomer Geist, run by Michelin star chef Bo Bech.
Since its foundation in 1911, the family-owned company Fredericia has built up a strong tradition of beautiful craftsmanship and innovative design, developed in close collaboration with a carefully chosen circle of internationally recognised designers.
