Ege brings history to life at Hotel Danmark

Inspired by Thorvaldsens Museum, Hotel Danmark has been spruced up with exquisite carpets from Ege Tæpper

Located in the cultural district of Copenhagen close to the City Hall Square, Tivoli and many of the city’s museums, Hotel Danmark re-opened in 2017. Part of the interior design is inspired by Thorvaldsens Museum, a bold and colourful building situated just around the corner from the hotel.

The racing green façade makes the hotel stand out right away. Søren Brøchner-Mortensen, owner of Hotel Danmark, explains:

- We are so happy that we had the courage to cover the façade with green tiles. It turns the building into a characteristic and beautiful house that people notice and hopefully remember.

When passing the doorstep you are welcomed by a luxurious lobby, an outside vineyard garden and a rooftop bar offering delicious cocktails with an amazing Copenhagen view on the side.

Fabric surfaces is the overall theme of the décor. The corridors feature velvet like walls crafted from an old Italian technique and soft carpet floorings reinterpreting mosaic tiles from Thorvaldsens Museum.

Entering the hotel rooms, a quite different experience awaits: Leather, marble, steel, fine textiles and loop pile carpets beautifully blend in interior settings with a strong and uncompromising Scandinavian design DNA.

Thorvaldsens Museum
Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) represents the neoclassical period in most of his works with motifs from Greek mythology and portraits of religious and other important personalities.

The decoration of Thorvaldsens Museum, and thereby the hotel corridor carpet designs, reflect the geographical locations that influenced Thorvaldsen’s life. Grey and brown tones from weather-beaten driftwood and lava stone found on the shores of Iceland complete the understated mosaic patterns of the coarse knitted sweater.

In contrast, Copenhagen’s bustling 18th century cityscape has inspired the multicoloured carpets mixing greens and browns with copper and brick shades. Walking through the hotel corridors, guests discover how colours and patterns change from uninspiring dark and simple to bright, complex and finally refined expressions symbolising the artistic development of Thorvaldsen.
