Designmuseum Danmark and the café will reopen June 2022. Until then we are all closed for catering and bookings. See you in 2022!
Behind the name: Café Klint
The Klint café is named after the furniture architect and professor Kaare Klint (1888–1954), who was the son of P.V. Jensen-Klint, the architect behind Grundvig Church, a masterpiece of Expressionist architecture. Kaare Klint is a very important person in Danish design history and for the museum in particular, since in the 1920s he worked with architect Ivar Bentsen on a thorough restoration and renovation of the museum. Klint also designed the beautiful display cases that are still used at the museum, and he had his furniture school on the premises.
We would like to thank our partners for their contribution to creating a unique atmosphere in our café:
- Danish lamp designer Le Klint for supplying us with the classic “Fruit Light” hanging lamps designed by Kaare Klint in 1944.
- Iiattala/Fiskars for having supplied the plates and cutlery for the café – including Kaj Franck’s iconic dishware “Teema”, which was designed in 1949-52.
- Fritz Hansen for supplying Arne Jacobsen’s Grand Prix chairs from 1957 in coloured ash with chrome legs.
