DESIGN SPANNING FIVE FLOORS
At FREDERIKSGADE 1 design brands, emerging talent, organizations, entrepreneurs, architects, photographers and other creatives work side by side, floor by floor. FREDERIKSGADE 1 is outlook and visibility – to past and present – with a dedication to reinterpreting and developing the Danish design tradition in an international context.
Every floor has an individual atmosphere and character dictated by regular creators and exhibitors residing there. Common to them all is their distinct roles on the Danish and international design scene, carrying with them a cultural history in constant and dynamic flux.
Here you will find many of our design brands, practitioners and creatives. The house’s showrooms are open to visitors upon appointment with the individual brands.
You can read more about our regular exhibitors below, where you can also contact them directly.

“FREDERIKSGADE 1 has become a design destination in Copenhagen, one not to be missed. Having our showroom here, in a beautiful building in the historic Copenhagen quarter Frederiksstaden, makes for an extraordinary scenery for our furniture. Aside from that, it also means being a neighbour to many other creative souls who all work with design in one form or another, inspiring us daily. The fact that we are present at an address in Copenhagen with a truly international mindset is both unique and valuable to us.”
Christian Bjerg Elving
CEO AND PARTNER, KARAKTER
“It means a lot to be surrounded by such talented people who work hard at fulfilling their dreams. We are all part of the field of design and support each other by sharing experiences, challenges and successes. Working in such a historical setting reminds me of my place in design history. FREDERIKSGADE 1 has given me an impressive network of creators, interior designers, stylists, architects and design businesses. Not only by means of the people who work here, but also through their colleagues, family and friends.”
Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt
DESIGNER AND ARTIST
“Being part of a bigger whole when you are a small business is a major strength and having colleagues to discuss and problem solve always helps. It feels like such a privilege to be around this diverse crowd of creative people going about their daily business at the house. And when 3daysofdesign and other events move in, F1 becomes a definitive go-to-destination in Copenhagen.”

Splendidly high ceilings, original details in stucco and panelling, lattice windows and the overall presence of history, overlooking the Marble Church. This setting daily inspires not only our team, but also our clients and guests who come to us to realize their own design dreams, big and small. The house also encourages creative interplay between its exhibitors. This has decidedly led to many collaborations and good friendships.”
