Copenhagen – The former industrial coal crane in Copenhagen harbour has been redesigned as a luxury two-person retreat. The interior, designed by Arcgency, celebrates the colour black, both as an homage to the building’s previous function and as a way to spotlight the view outside and promote tranquillity.
‘Black plays a pivotal role in muting and minimising visual distractions so people feel almost enveloped in the interior,’ lead architect Mads Møller told Dezeen. In the current attention-based economy, luxury consumers are looking for brands to create sanctuaries of serenity that minimise the distractions of 21st-century living.
