CASE STUDY
— THE COLLECTOR’S EYE

Design

In The Collector’s Eye, the melange of disparate elements, vintage and contemporary, refined and brutalist, are united by a discerning eclecticism in an historic exhibition space. Expert curation forges easy connections between diverse objects from divergent times and places, effortlessly linking eras and styles, materials and forms. This collection, with all the hallmarks of an exhibition, is photographed at Copenhagen’s Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, which has morphed and evolved in a similar manner since it was originally built  and designed in 1891 by artist and architect J.F. Willumsen.
