Some of you might know the treasure chest Klassik in Copenhagen - a high-end vintage store filled to the brim with to-die-for items from the last century. The producer Klassik Studio emanates from Klassik's values: "with honest respect for history, and access to modern production techniques", they bring new life to old design.
Drop by our store and discover Poul Volther's beautiful and classic daybed from 1958, the occasional tables Cube by Kurt Østervig from the 60's and the outstanding The Hanger from 1964 by Adam Hoff & Poul Østergaard. In addition, Klassik Studio also develops their own products that go hand in hand with past designs. We carry a selection of beautiful vases, that will complement any interior.
Klassik Studio says about themselves: "Functionality, quality and timeless simplicity characterise our products. Humanity and everyday life are our focus, and the main feature of the furniture is to serve this purpose." These are all words that holm° would put its own signature underneath!
