FRAMED COMPOSITION
— REBEKKA BAY AND RICKY NORDSON

home

On the surface, Rebekka Bay and Ricky Nordson’s apartment in the historic heart of Copenhagen is a minimalist vision all in white, replete with rich details typical of the neighbourhood’s 18th century architecture. Returning to Copenhagen after living in New York City and London, Bay, the creative director for Marimekko, and her husband, a Scandinavian designer agent, played with scale and proportion. Slender hallways and vertiginous ceilings frame stand-alone items such as Alvar Aalto’s 41 Paimio armchair. They place just a few pieces in substantial rooms, playing with contrast and sightlines in a filmic way. In the dining room, an assembly of vintage chairs are part of a collection of 26 one-offs, including classics by Poul Kjærholm, Jean Prouvé, Lucian R Ercolani and Arne Jacobsen.
See this rendition of minimalism that is also a homage to its historic setting in Ark Journal Volume V.
