Imagine walking through the busy streets of Frederiksberg in Copenhagen on
a sunny day, with pedestrians crossing the streets and cars rushing by, with
no intention of stopping.
This is, however, precisely what happened, for a couple of minutes during one

policeman found the time to stop the traffic, for just a moment, in order to
let cross the street, undisturbed.
This extraordinary and beautiful moment was branded in the minds of the
Danes. All newspapers wrote about it and no one could forget charming duck
family. It is from this even that Hans Bølling was inspired to create the

The ARCHITECTMADE Connection
The ARCHITECTMADE collection is comprised of design objects designed by Denmark’s most recognized architects such as Utzon, Kjærholm, Juhl, Vedel and Karpf.
Often these architects' ideas are seated deep within their heart, until finally they see the light of day. According to Kristian Vedel, the ideas from the inside emerged and developed over a period of time until he simply couldn’t help it. He simply had to execute them by bringing his designs to life in order to share his ideas and passion with others.
All of the architects, represented by ARCHITECTMADE, have designed their objects with firm belief in simple and sophisticated aesthetics, while positioning functionality at their core. This process resulted in a clear crystallization and conceptualization of the product in its purest, simplest and most refined form. This is the key characteristic of the essence of Modern Danish design, which all of ARCHITECMADE products encompass.
