— KIRSTINE MEIER CARLSEN

Home

As the founder of Studio X, a design studio and gallery in Copenhagen that acts as a laboratory for concepts, Kirstine Meier Carlsen is an individual imbued with curiosity. Her home is a natural extension of this.
Located in Copenhagen’s Potato Rows (Kartoffelrækkerne), the three-storey terrace houses two adults, five children and an eclectic collection of vintage and modern, utilitarian and playful design. A custom Douglas pine daybed from Studio X sits with a Muller van Severen Pillow Sofa for Kassl editions, both atop an antique Saharan rug. Interior pieces live a fully realized existence that remains faithful to their design, just as the hyper-functional home remains faithful to its original story. 
A glimpse into Carlsen’s house in Ark Journal VOL V reveals her facility to blend objects, materials and structures both at home and in Studio X.
