The Nordic Nomad

Copenhagen, Denmark

Studio Oliver Gustav

What’s the store in a nutshell?

In a city jam-packed with Danish design classics at every turn, Studio Oliver Gustav makes for a welcome refuge from your standard Scandi-white spaces. The studio, showroom and boutique are creative consultant and interior designer Oliver Gustav’s own sublime take on the world, creating a carefully curated interplay between opposing elements, textures, the light and shadows, and the rich and austere.

What is the aesthetic of the brand?

In Museumsbygningen, a neoclassical edifice built as a private art gallery for Johan Hansen in the early 20th century, self-taught Gustav invites you into his monochrome universe. But Studio Oliver Gustav is not monochrome in the way you’d expect from a Scandi boutique – it is a rich, layered and refined monochromatic aesthetic that is anything but colourless and dull.

What are the signature pieces?​

Gustav challenges local sensibilities by amalgamating the Danish – designs by Poul Kjærholm, sculptures by Kaare Sebastian Golles and a special edition Arne Jacobsen Drop Chair, as well as his own line of sofas and tables – with the international – including work from Faye Toogood, Apparatus, Rick Owens, Michaël Verheyden, Jan Janssen and Vicenzo De Cotiis.

What’s the neighbourhood like?

Located just north of the city centre, Østerbro is Copenhagen’s quieter, more family-friendly neighbourhood. That doesn’t make it dull, as it is dotted with cafés, shops and parks – this posh neighbourhood has many hidden treasures to explore. Østerbro combines the finer things in life with a local attitude.
