Marianne Brandi Shares her Insight on Design

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Marianne Brandi, Creative Director at DAY Home

Marianne Brandi, Creative Director at DAY Home, loves Avenue Hotel because of the homey atmosphere created by General Manager Mai Kappenberger and her friendly team.

Marianne Brandi is the Creative Director of the successful Danish lifestyle brand DAY Home. She is a regular guest at Avenue Hotel and blogs about design and other subjects which inspire her at the design magazine RUM.
Marianne Brandi has kindly agreed to share her insights on taste, design and Copenhagen with us.

You Could Call it Relaxed Elegance
“The philosopy of DAY is to create daily couture for your wardrobe or for your home,” says Marianne Brandi, “…you could call it relaxed elegance.”
“At DAY Home we always work with the seasonal colours,” she adds, “but I find that a monochrome B & W universe is very interesting and modern, especially if you add a single acidic or burnt colour.”

Tips on Marianne Brandi’s Blog
“On my blog at the design magazine RUM I write about anything which interests me,” says Marianne Brandi.
“I am not SO into modern design, so I mostly write about food, shops, new ideas and intitiatives at DAY. Like our new concept stores in Lyngby and Århus, we are very proud of those.”

"DAY Home is daily couture for your home," says Creative Director Marianne Brandi. Be inspired by the casual elegance at their new concept stores in Lyngby and Århus.

Marianne Brandi’s Favourite Stores in Copenhagen
Fil de Fer in St. Kongensgade is so beautiful,” says Marianne Brandi.
“Everything in the shop is beautiful. Fil de Fer really stands out as a unique interior experience.”
Green Square on Amager is my favourite …,” she continues.
“Seven warehouses with something for every taste. I cannot leave the place without finding something I like. You should dedicate at least a couple of hours for your visit.”
Othilia Decor is really a showroom,” Marianne Brandi finishes, “but when Othilia is there you can have a chat with her about the comfortable Italian furniture from Meridani. Othilia has incredible taste and imports some amazing stuff.”

Avenue Hotel is Cosy and Homey
“I love Avenue Hotel because of the young, friendly and very helpful staff,” says Marianne Brandi.
“Also I feel at home at Avenue Hotel. The hotel is decorated by my good friend Mikael Mammen, who is amazing at creating a cosy atmosphere. General Manager Mai Kappenberger and her team at Avenue are fantastic at making the atmosphere even more homey …”.

Film Reviewers Praise HÆVNEN (Civilization)

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Anton (Mikael Persbrandt) and Marianne (Trine Dyrholm) light up the screen in the Danish movie HÆVNEN (Civilization).

Danish film director Susanne Bier must be a very happy woman. All the film reviewers praised her new movie HÆVNEN (Civilization) when it premiered on Thursday 26 August – and the movie is in the running for an Oscar nomination.

You Will Laugh, Cry and Shiver
Hævnen is a beautifully shot and compelling story which draws parallels from gang chiefs in African fugitive camps to tweens fighting in the idyllic Danish countryside.
The movie touches upon existential themes like love, friendship, revenge and justice – it will surely make you laguh, cry and shiver.

Anton (Mikael Persbrandt) is a doctor who truly believes violence breeds more violence

Danish Star Director
The Danish film director Susanne Bier had her international breakthrough with the movies After the Wedding and Brothers. The latter was recently reinterpreted stateside with Jack Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire in the leads. Susanne Bier herself won an Oscar-nomination and a trip to Hollywood to direct the movie Things We Lost in the Fire with Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro in the leads.
Now Susanne Bier is back in Denmark with a movie of international calibre.

Christian (William Jøhnk) believes in a simple rule: If you hit hard enough the first time you win.

Hævnen Makes You Think
With her new movie Hævnen Susanne Bier demonstrates that Danish movies can have strong acting, beautiful pictures and a story which makes the audience ask themselves big questions.
The movie premiered in Denmark on Thursday 26 August. If you don’t speak Danish keep an eye out as Hævnen (or Civilization) will soon hit the movie screens in your country. It has been sold for distribution in more than 30 countries and is in the running for a nomination for Best Foreign Movie at the 2011 Oscar Awards.

Find more information, see the trailer or reserve tickets for Hævnen.
(Sorry, for now it is only shown in Danish without subtitles).

Copenhagen Pride invites the entire city to celebrate DIVERSITY 19-22 August

“It is one of the most colourful and unique parties in Copenhagen,” wrote the highly respected city guide AOK as it awarded Copenhagen Pride the title as The Best Street Party in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen Pride is a four day festival high-lighting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual culture with open-air films, concerts, debates and parties. The festival culminates with the popular parade through the city on Saturday 21 August.

"Copenhagen Pride is one of the most colourful and unique street parties in Copenhagen," writes the city guide AOK

Parade and Free Open-air Concert
Copenhagen Pride 2010 invites the entire city to celebrate DIVERSITY as the Pride Parade marches (or more correctly: Dances) its way from Frederiksberg Town Hall to Copenhagen City Hall on Saturday 21 August at 1 pm. The party culminates at 4 pm with the free open-air concert on the City Hall Square where around 40,000 happy spectators are expected.
One of the most popular places to watch the parade is Dronning Louises Bro (a 10 minutes walk along The Lakes from Avenue Hotel). When the parade has passed the bridge it is an easy walk from there to City Hall Square – just in time for the concert to begin.

Organizations like Amnesty International remind the party-goers that there is a political angle to the party
