Danish designer Søren Rose was commissioned to design the Walker Lamp for The Silo – a former grain tower converted into apartments and public space in Copenhagen.
The development is the centrepiece of an urban revitalisation scheme transforming the Nordhavnen waterfront district of the city. Each of the Silo’s 17 storeys is varies in size – resulting in 40 uniquely proportioned apartments (including one owned by MENU’s founder Bjarne Hansen). No two apartments are the same, but each is fitted with the brass Walker Lamp.
Søren Rose Studio
Multi-talented Danish designer Søren Rose started his career as an entrepreneur and creative director – setting up one of Scandinavia’s most successful web companies, among other enterprises. In 2008, he fulfilled a life-long dream by opening a design studio in New York. Today, he is one of New York’s most in-demand designers, with an outpost in Copenhagen.
The studio famously operates a no-hierarchy rule. “If a junior designer has the best idea that’s what we go with,” Søren explains. “As a studio, we worship at the altar of quality and sustainable materials.”
