In December we had the pleasure of working for 2 days in Bjarne Agerbo’s atelier in the outskirts of Copenhagen. Bjarne has a wonderful little studio in his villa, where every little thing has its place. It really made us want to do a studio make over!
Bjarne helped us create 5 new photogravure prints that will be available in our shop very soon.

December is getting closer and so is our annual Christmas Market with Jody Barton! This year we’re back at Sankt Peders Stræde with our old neighbors Din Nye Ven. We have prepared some new prints, among others some brand new etchings, two new sets of cards and a reprint of One Month, now as a special Christmas edition, offset printed on a nice paper stock. All with a christmas discount!
Some talented friends are joining us this year so be sure to mark the date and join os for some good old ‘julehygge’, gløgg and christmas shopping: December 19th at Din Nye Ven, Sankt Peders Stræde 34 14.00 – 20.00
The Piramida Concerts in which Efterklang have played with symphony orchestras across Europe and in New York have almost come to an end! We found out that there are all these amazing photos from the shows online. Here is a little selection – we especially chose some that show good views of our hanging stage elements and the visual projections we did for this tour.
This one, by Judith Dekker, is from Efterklang’s show in Brussels
And this photo from the Barbican show in London is by Erik Sellgren
Here are a few by Ruth Arnold from Efterklang’s show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
And here’s another one from Brussels, from Efterklang’s own flickr page.
The exhibition Edge – 15 Statements, at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Architecture and Design, is closing soon on November 25th. If you are in Copenhagen and haven’t seen it yet, you should go and have a look, there are many very interesting projects to see.
We exhibited our work for Efterklang’s Piramida Concerts: concert visuals, stage design and also the Piramida cover artwork. This was a nice chance to show a lot of the process behind the work, and we’d love to share it with you.
This is a project we did last year, that we finally got around to putting on our website! It’s an animation piece we did for an installation at Nobis Hotel in Stockholm. The 9 minute long animation shows a series of geometric shapes moving in and out of one another to form a hypnotic moving mandala. Here are some stills from the film. You can see many more stills on our work site here. We will upload a snippet of the animation shortly.
EnsaimadArt is a new project where various artists were asked to design a round label for the traditional Ensaimada pastry boxes of Mallorca. The project is a collaborative charity project and all profits from the sales of the boxes will be used to create working opportunities for disabled people, so when we were asked to join we of course said yes!
You can read more about the lovely project and other participating artists and designers on It’s Nice That here.
Tonight Sustainia will be awarding the best sustainable solution among 100 nominated projects from all over the world. The winner of Sustainia’s Community Award will also be announced. And we have designed the awards – which will be handed over to the winners by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, Honorary Chair of the Sustainia Award Committee, at the Royal Theater in Copenhagen. This is our very first award design project, and we were very happy to work with glass artists Karin Mørch and Torben Jørgensen who crafted the awards. Carpenter and designer Benjamin Nordsmark made the wooden bases. Fingers crossed that we get to say hi to Mr. Schwarzenegger!

Efterklang – Under Giant Trees
We spent most of today preparing the stage elements for Efterklang’s show at the Royal Academy of Music’s Concert Hall October 9th and 10th. It is perhaps one of the most beautiful spaces in Copenhagen, and a very nice place to spend time in. Here are some work-in-progress photos – we got to crawl around under the ceiling, hanging our striped wooden sticks from small holes, with very nice views from above.
And here’s our amazing intern Bettina!
