MARGRETHE ODGAARD, Textile Designer
“Frederiksberg Gardens are very beautiful in a groomed and cultivated way – and I have mirrored the garden image, but warped the prettiness of it, by depicting weird insects, beetles and weeds. My intention is that initially you should feel like you are sitting in a well-groomed garden, and that you would only discover the insects bit by bit.”
Yoke - Interaction Design
“We have created an auditory landscape in collaboration with Jakob and Jan as a rendering of the Earth – from its core to its atmosphere. We use tectonic rumbling, gurgling waters, thunder and rain, and insects tickling across the forest floor. The forces of nature are subtly drawn into the restaurant without overpowering the other elements of the restaurant.”
Anika Lori, Artist
“The cabaresque urinal is a backstage funhouse paraphrase of the cabaret history and vaudeville spirit of the Frederiksberg Gardens’ neighborhood of times past. People are literally peeing on my art piece – straight into the corners of the clown’s mouth. And the entire piece was formally initiated by painter Erik A. Frandsen’s official urine. Now that’s action-art for you!”
Mads Vegas, light designer
“The light and the crystals - in our little gastronomic event - represent permanence and nature the perpetually changing – the flux. Both natural light and artificial lighting play on the crystals that serve both as sources of light and of shadow. As in nature the light also changes significantly during the course of the day. There is the natural movement of the sun and the programming of many different lights.”
Henrik Vibskov & Andreas Emenius, Designer & Artist
“The ten pyramid-shaped seats for the restaurant is part of our ten-step project, ‘The Fringe Series’ and are made to inspire people to overcome their preconceptions. With seemingly unpleasant pointy seats the chairs do not exactly come across as usable everyday objects. The chairs serve as ten individual monuments that each sporadically breaks the natural flow of the room by provoking the viewer’s (or user’s) sense of category or preconceived ideas.“

The story of Mikkeller is the story of two homebrewers that in a few years went from hobby brewing in the kitchen to national and international recognition. Since the summer of 2007, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, has run Mikkeller on his own. Mikkel is a gipsy-brewer, who brews at different breweries in Denmark, around Europe and the United States.
Mikkeller and their unique approach to brewing so far has sparked creative collaborations such as the Mielcke & Hurtigkarl Beer, Beer Dinners and hopefully many, many more in the future. On our blog you can read more about some of our projects.
