Since the opening in 1925, Copenhagen Airport has been characterized by Danish design. And the new Finger C is no exception. The area is furnished with 670 iconic Arne Jacobsen series 7 chairs, 250 large skylight lamps, and floor to ceiling windows reflecting natural light onto the white marble floor. The arrangement of the furniture is based on nudging principles where the chairs are placed in smaller groups instead of long traditional rows and the most comfortable chairs are placed along the windows to attract people to sit here. All pieces and materials are carefully selected to represent the streamlined Nordic style that Denmark is renowned for across the world.
“Denmark is widely renowned as a classic design nation. With the new Finger C, we are able to offer a firsthand experience of some of the best designs to our passengers as soon as they land in Denmark. The design experience is also reflected in our selection of shops where a wide variety of Danish and international design brands are represented,” says Peter Krogsgaard, Commercial Director at Copenhagen Airport.

Here fashionistas can go on a shopping spree and passengers who wish to bring home a piece of Danish design can have their pick among Danish brands such as George Jensen, Bang & Olufsen, ECCO, Pandora and many more.

For Chinese Visitors

To accommodate the growing number of Chinese visitors at Copenhagen Airport in the best possible way, a number of Chinese speaking guides have been employed to provide guidance at the airport. Additionally, Copenhagen Airport has launched a Chinese app, available in the App Store, that helps passengers with translation of signs, wayfinding, and provides information about everything from restaurant menus and shopping at the airport to departure times and gates.
