Montana, Kvadrat, Erik Jørgensen, Luceplan/MODULAR and GRID have come together to develop a new design zone in Copenhagen as a permanent supplement to the city’s design fairs and exhibitions. 

Pakhus 48 frames six permanent showrooms by GRID, Luceplan/MODULAR, Erik Jørgensen, VOLA, Kvadrat and Montana. The warehouse is part of a new design zone in an extensive urban development project in the Copenhagen free port area, initiated by CPH City & Port Development. 

The old warehouse has been gently renovated and Luceplan was the first company to move into the building. Kvadrat, Montana, Erik Jørgensen and VOLA opened the doors to their respective showrooms in May 2009, while GRID moved in during 2011. All six showrooms in Pakhus 48 have been individually decorated. 

Pakhus 48 comprises an area of 3,000 square metres and is fringed with a wide terrace from where the view of the harbour and the city can be enjoyed. 

Pakhus 48 is a dynamic focal point in a design zone that attracts Danish and international architects, customer and journalists, and offers an inspiring environment which is open for professional as well as private visitors. 

Opening hours 
Monday to Friday, 9am–4pm

The internationally renowned Swedish designer Monica Förster has joined forces with Erik Jørgensen to create Savannah - a sofa of uncompromising quality hand-constructed in choice natural materials at Erik Jørgensen’s furniture factory in Svendborg, Denmark. Savannah comprises a wooden structure wrapped with heavy saddleback leather, creating a beautiful framework for the sofa. In the corners, the wooden structure peeks through, revealing the superb craftsmanship that characterises Savannah.


Savannah is a high-backed sofa with excellent sitting comfort. It has inviting, hand-sewn seat cushions that you sink into, ensuring additional comfort for the back.

Soleil Noir
Designed by Odile Decq
Luceplan / MODULAR


Technological and futuristic, Soleil Noir is a suspension and ceiling lamp with an organic form in molded polyurethane foam, whose LED light source is hidden inside a disk that generates homogeneous diffused, indirect lighting.


Supported by a single asymmetrical cable, it keeps its balance thanks to the thicknesses of the body, functioning as a slim, aerial lighting element that conveys brightness with discretion and elegance. It is equipped with an avant-garde optical system to guarantee uniform light flow on the diffuser.


An object that defies the laws of physics, thanks to technology that permits a design bordering on the

Mesh is a suspension lamp offering multiple lighting scenarios for personalised aesthetic and functional performance. The lightweight, almost transparent structure dematerialises it to leave space only for light, the true protagonist of the lamp. A poetic creation of great impact that makes it possible to generate a refined, evocative atmosphere.


The particular structure of the lamp permits exceptional freedom in the control of its luminance: the intensity can be adjusted, and it is possible to choose which sectors to illuminate.


Available in two different sizes, thanks to its versatility it is perfect for both the
home and contract markets.

Stochastic is a suspension lamp with an evocative character, which thanks to the dematerialization of the support elements and the volumetric breakdown takes on a theatrical, poetic character: not just functional quality, but also aesthetic and decorative refinement.


Composed of glass spheres at different heights, the lamp permits infinite combinations, in a sort of “controlled freedom” where each sphere is connected to steel rods of different lengths.


A game of imagination whose light source – a double high-efficiency LED module – is enclosed inside the spheres, generating warm, diffused indirect lighting, aimed both upward and downward.

Tonus Meadow
Colour design by Nina Koppel


Tonus Meadow is an evolution of the classic Tonus fabric, which was created by textile artist Nina Koppel in the 1960’s. It is characterised by its two different expressions and intriguing colour richness.
Woven from an elastic combination of 90% wool and 10% Helanca, the textile is ideal for organic furniture.


Based on Nina Koppel’s original colour archive, the colour scale for Tonus Meadow combines neutral, natural tones, such as grey, with bright highlight colours like deep red. These nuances are coordinated with the Tonus palette and consequently the textiles complement each other well.


April 2015

Tonus 4
Designed by Nina Koppel


Tonus 4 is a colour update of Tonus. Ideal for modern organic furniture and characterised by rare colour richness, it comes in a total of 47 hues, of which 19 are new.
Now recognised as a classic textile, Tonus brings colours to life in vibrant, precise fashion. Building on this characteristic, the intensity and brightness of all the colours have been increased.


The new earthy, golden tones in the palette are taken from Nina Koppel’s original colour archive. They show her brilliant sense of colour, which reflects that she mastered all facets of the colour design.

Cappuccina is a fixture composed of a slender metal base and a spherical luminous body in opaline glass, containing an LED module, on which the fabric shade simply rests, without attachment: this configuration makes it possible to move the shade and orient the light to meet different needs.


The decoration of the fabric represents a design in the design. Very close in the upper part of the shade, the pattern gradually spreads downward, creating a delicate shading.


Cappuccina is ideal for the contract sector, thanks to the possibility of customizing the fabrics, and an accessory that blocks the shade.


April 2015

Designed by Louise Sigvardt


Made from recycled polyester, Ace is an opaque curtain with a sustainable footprint. The textile is the result of Louise Sigvardt’s expertise in colours, patterns and fashion design fused with a technologically advanced material.


Ace’s graphic pattern of tiny squares that is reminiscent of sports clothing pays homage to its technological origin. Yet, the curtain’s heavy, almost sculptural folds call associations with the classic velvet curtain. The colour palette of deep, bold and surprising hues underline these playfully contrasting expressions.


Ace works well in a variety of different interiors. Thanks to its flame resistance, Ace is particularly suitable for contract environments.

Umami 1, 2 and 3
Designed by Louise Sigvardt


Umami is a durable upholstery fabric, which comes in three vibrant yet calm expressions.
Named after the fifth primary taste, all the versions of Umami are made from wool. Each is constructed with a different weaving method and, as result, has a distinctive surface structure.


Umami offers many combination opportunities, as its three expressions combine multiple colours in each colour setting. While the colourways for Umami are understated, some feature bold, contrasting tones.
These can be emphasised by using complementary colours in the same room.


Umami is hardwearing and consequently, it is well-suited to contract use.

Tango is an innovative floor lamp for indirect lighting that transfigures the harmonious, sensual movements of the dance.
Mounted on a triangular steel base, the jointed structure of the lamp nimbly lends itself to a fluid mechanical torsion movement generated at the height of the middle part of the shafts.


A simple gesture makes it possible to adjust the direction of the beam. The movement is propagated up to the top of the lamp, setting its angle and making it possible to direct the light where it is needed.

Sparkling and Drizzle
Designed by Aggebo & Henriksen


Sparkling and Drizzle are two vibrantly patterned curtains, that explore how curtains can create atmosphere in a room and complement each other in order to achieve varied expressions.


The pattern starts as a unicolour at the bottom of the curtain. As it moves upwards, it melts into a lively play of organic shapes, which steadily taper away into the white base fabric. While Sparkling is densely woven, Drizzle is transparent and expresses colours in a more dissolved way.


Sparkling and Drizzle mix three colours in every colourway. Some combinations have a graphic look; others are more floral.

The Compendium lamps stands out for the evocative graphic-sculptural impact of their slim silhouette.


The vertical body of the lamp is grafted onto a truncated conical base and extends with an initial cylindrical-section segment that gives way to a long terminal profile in extruded aluminium with a flanged section in which the LED circuits are positioned, thus making it possible to screen the light emission generated by the high-efficiency sources.
The body freely rotates on the base for an easy orientation of the indirect light.


The Compendium lamps are available in black, brass and aluminium.

Rime is a woollen upholstery fabric, which has a melange-like look when viewed from a distance. It is named to reflect the harmony of the two unicolours used in each of its colourways.


Rime is constructed with a satin weave. This gives it a tight, smooth and lustrous structure. Each of Rime’s colourways combines a clear tone with a shade. The palette for Rime comprises natural and earthy hues, as well as a few highlight colours. Due to the variety of its colourways Rime is very versatile. It is particularly well suited to offices and soft contract usage.

Precise Drill features a vertical pattern of laser-cut holes that travels along its selvedge. Reminiscent of the holes made in paper by a hole-puncher, these create a poetic play of light and shadows. With its vertical pattern, it creates a rhythm and variation in a very simple, modern way.


Drill has a rough selvedge that creates an intriguingcontrast to the clean-cut holes. Alternatively, it is possible to lasercut the selvedge in order to achieve a more precise look.

Revive 1+2

Designed by Georgina Wright



Revive 1+2 are vibrant upholstery textiles designed by Georgina Wright, inspired by the textures, colours and materials of harbours and fishing boats. Both are made from post-consumer recycled polyester (PET) and are especially created with a focus to reduce the environmental impact in production and the use of natural resources.


Georgina Wright: “We are all concerned about sustainability. So the thought that a recycled object can become a new textile on a chair is hugely satisfying for a designer.”


Due to their durability and added flammability resistance, Revive 1+2 are particularly suitable for contract environments.

Clara 2

Designed by Anne Birgitte Hansen



Clara 2 is a colour update of Clara, a woollen upholstery fabric designed by Anne Birgitte Hansen.

Clara 2 is available in twelve sets of reverse colourways. One version is unicoloured and interwoven with mélange stitching, while the other is with unicolour stitching on a melange background.


The melange yarns add depth to the look of Clara and combine to vibrant effect with the unicolour yarns. The fabric, which changes appearance according to the position of the viewer, projects a strong sense of volume and richness.


Clara 2 is suitable for both contract and private use.

Knit collection 2014

Designed by Alfredo Häberli



The Alfredo Häberli knit collection comprises three vibrant knitted upholstery textiles. Thanks to their knitted construction, Nebula, Nadir and Galaxy offer good stretchability, which makes them ideal for organically shaped furniture. The colourways for Nebula, Nadir and Galaxy combine contrasting and tone-on-tone hues, which range from bright to earthy.


Alfredo Häberli: “All the designs are very different but are nevertheless interrelated due to their specific colouring. The colour design of this collection was extremely fun!”

Welcome to GUEST!

Designed by Kasper Salto & Thomas Sigsgaard



Montana GUEST is a comfortable chair and a flexible seat. It is here when you need it - back in your Montana shelving unit when you don’t.


“Kasper and Thomas re-think the extra seat and not least the storage of the guest chair, the folding chair, the stool, the piano chair, the children’s chair in the living room, the chair for the dorm room, and the informal conference chair.” says Joakim Lassen, Montana.


GUEST is ready to use in a few seconds – with one single grip the legs unfold, then mount the seat and a comfortable chair is ready to use. GUEST measures 28 cm x 28 cm x 9.5 cm when packed up.  In use the GUEST chair has a seat height of 48 cm. The seat upholstery is available in seven colours.

Max Knit

Designed by Maxjenny Forslund



Max Knit is a tactile knitted upholstery fabric.The construction involves knitting together two thick polyester FR yarns and a thin polyester yarn.


Although only matt yarns are used in the construction of Max Knit, the combination of the different colours and yarns creates a vibrant play across the surface of the fabric.  

Maxjenny Forslund drew on her ‘gut instinct’ when creating the colours for Max Knit. The fresh, versatile colourways for Max Knitshowcase her adventurous approach to colour design.


Max Knit combines excellent stretchability and durability. Consequently, it is well suited to contract use and is particularly ideal for organically shaped furniture, as well as soft seating.

Blue Hour

Designed by Maxjenny Forslund



Blue Hour is a flat, unicoloured curtain, which particularly stands out for its distinctive simplicity. Closely-woven yet slightly translucent, it has a defined, almost sculptural effect when draped.


The yarns used in the construction of Blue Hourare slightly shiny. As a result, the curtain has a ‘hi-tech’ look and changes appearance according to the light and the position of the viewer. Its fine, subtle structure emerges when it is seen from close-up.


Blue Hour is a versatile curtain that works well in a wide range of environments. Thanks to its fire-retardancy, it is very well-suited to contract applications.

Spotlights are extremely practical and economically beneficial for both projects and private homes. In 2012, Modular launched the Smart family, an intelligent family with sophisticated technology in a Modular design wrapper as its greatest asset. The shallow recess depth and wide range of accessories really make Smart hit the mark. With Smart, you first choose the basic spotlight and then add the right accessory. This gives your lighting the perfect look in any room.


Modular is expanding this family to include even more options: more rigorous spotlights, directionality, new surfacemounting options, an IP version for bathrooms and the option to play with the trendy colour of the moment: gold.

Médard has quite a personality. Its lamphouse is a rounded cylinder balancing on a sleek set of organic feet. The soft shapes give this lamp an extremely cuddly look. The random nature of the feet also ensures a jovial touch.


Médard’s tiltable lamphouse and easily portable nature allow you to place any object of your choice in the spotlight. Médard is not just a table lamp, there is also a track-mounted version and a suspended version to add the perfect finishing touch above your table. In addition, a surface-mounted version for the wall or ceiling is available. The table lamp has a retrofit LED lamp and the spotlights are also supplied with an LED module.

Rektor, the directional surface-mounted spotlight by Modular, will guide the way around your home. Rektor is a surprising fixture, as it is highly directional despite the super-sleek housing. This makes it a perfect example of accent lighting. Its extensive directionality and metal colour accent on the housing make it a genuine must-have. Rektor is also handy for highlighting a wall or specific object.


The unique feature of Rektor is that all the technical workings are concealed within the fixture. The innovative tilting technology allows you to rotate the lamphouse through 360°, as well as adjusting it upwards or downwards through 90°. All without a single wire being visible.

Knit upholstery collection 2014

Designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec



Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have crafted a knitted upholstery collection for Kvadrat: Canal,Gravel and Moraine.

While distinctively individual, the designs share certain characteristics and colours. Each has a three-dimensional expression and features an interlocking pattern.


The designs are constructed using a double jersey knit. The knitted structures open new upholstering horizons thanks to their stretch characteristics and padded surfaces.


The front layer of the textiles is made from fine melange wool and polyester yarns with dark and light fibres to ensure that they have a sensuous touch and feature a rich play of colour nuances.


Canal, Gravel and Moraine are ideal for organically shaped furniture, suitable for both retail and soft contract use.

The new colours of Costanza

Designed by Paolo Rizzatto



The new colour scheme for Costanza, Luceplan's first big hit, is developed by Paolo Rizzatto with Studiopepe and divided into two families of colours for the shade.


The first range is Radieuse: decisive, dynamic colours that add contemporary flair to the pure tones of the first Costanza models. The original hues have been adjusted by slight tonal subtractions, making them more ductile and vibrant.


A new, contrasting proposal is seen in the Mezzo Tono collection: a sort, painterly range of pastel shades that remind us of the paintings of Morandi, misty landscapes, soft skins.


The new colour collections enhance the identity of a timeless icon, interpreting all the nuances of contemporary space.
