Denmark is home to some of the world’s most influential furniture, accessory and interior designers. With its global reputation for iconic design - and with one half of our founding team being Danish - it’s no surprise that we take a lot of inspiration from this small Scandinavian nation.
The Danish Way
Danish design has traditionally centred on functional and beautiful furniture. From Arne Jacobsen’s renowned Series 7 chairs to Poul Henningsen’s iconic PH lamps, the focus has been on minimalistic lines that create a sense of space; designing pieces with intention, purpose and functionality; and quality craftsmanship that lasts a lifetime.
Modern Danish design has brought with it more accessibility, with design houses like Muuto, Menu and HAY offering home accessories at an affordable price point. This contemporary take on Danish design retains the principles of minimalism and quality, while shifting the focus towards smaller objects.
Accessories are a fantastic way to bring Danish design into your space without the heavy investment of statement furniture. Mount Muuto’s cult dot hooks in your entryway, keep Menu’s sophisticated salt and pepper grinders on your dining table, and display playful ceramics and glassware from HAY in your kitchen.
Accessories for contemporary spaces
At WØRKS, our design celebrates the Danish principles of classic silhouette, clean lines and seamless function. With the Scandinavian commitment to warm minimalism and natural raw materials in mind, our vessels are constructed primarily from glass and wood.
Every aspect of our aesthetic has been carefully considered. From vessel size, shape and weight to a palette of earth tones and orbs of muted colour, our products are designed to break free of the bathroom and act as sophisticated objects for the home.
We blend classic lines with a contemporary aesthetic to ensure a timeless yet modern finish. Our 500ml vessels deliver form and function to vanities and bench tops; our 250ml offerings sit comfortably in home offices and on bedside tables, and our candles deliver gentle aromatics into living spaces from their position on sideboards and console tables.
Designed authentically in Århus, WØRKS products offer an approachable way to bring a touch of Danish design into your home.
