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.
