The Scandinavian design brand MOEBE is based in Copenhagen - founded by cabinetmaker Anders Thams and architect Martin D. Christensen. I came across Martin, when I first met Nordic Tales and saw their table POET (designed by Martin - see the post about the table here). So I’ve been watching Martin, and now MOEBE, ever since.

Take a look at their design and tell me if you too like the way they “push our proud scandinavian design traditions on towards new discoveries”. 

Here you see

The Polygrif | a customizable creation that transforms through the touch of your hands. The pieces are made of solid oak and beech.

The Frame | A frame simply put together by four pieces of oak and two pieces of plexiglass. Held together by a rubber band. Sold in two sizes; A4 and A3.

Pinch Two pieces of solid oak and a rubber band. Sold in pairs. Comes with a magnet to hang on the fridge or a simple hole to hang it on a pin on the wall. Measures: 3,5 x 6 cm

See - and do follow - MOEBE on their website. This is the upcoming, young generation of cool Danish designers and architects. #allgoodthingdanish spotted by missdesignsays.

This brand new urban garden - Instant City Life - in a Copenhagen street - takes up the place of a parked car. How clever is that? See the exhibition open until the 26th of September outside Absalonsgade 21 B in Copenhagen. The small “park” is made by Vega Landskab and is filled with plants, herbs and flowers for everyone to enjoy. The project is developed by VEGA Landskab in collaboration with Søren Ejlersen and Aarstiderne.com. Supported by The Danish Arts Council. Spotted by missdesignsays. Content Curator #allgoodthingsdanish

Prototypes from the alliance of designers “Danish Design Makers”. The participating designers have different nationalities and backgrounds, but all with strong ties to the Danish design culture.

"We believe that Danish Design values honesty, simplicity and function, and that these values reflect the beauty of the outcome. ́MAKERS ́ believe that design is a foremost practical subject and it is best to keep it this way. We will continue this tradition and for the future let a hands-on experience define Danish Design and tell its story. A picture says more than a 1000 words; a well-made prototype can’t lie!”

We Love Cycling is a new online magazine covering stories and special reports from the world of cycling. Their first report is from the city of bikes - Copenhagen! The world’s best city for cycling. See the video here and meet urban mobility expert Mikael Colville-Andersen, who advises cities across the planet and Morten Kabell, head of Copenhagen’s Technical and Environmental Administration. They even found a beautiful lady who ferries sperm samples to fertility clinics around Copenhagen on a sperm-shaped cargo-bike. Well, is that enough info to make you curious?

MAD (founded in 2011) is a not-for-profit organization that aims to build a community of cooks, purveyors, and thinkers with an appetite for knowledge and a desire to improve the restaurant trade. The cornerstone of MAD is an annual symposium, held every summer, that brings 600 people into a circus tent along Copenhagen’s harbor and features two days of talks from speakers from around the world. All videos of the talks are viewable online, for free. You can also join MAD Mondays, a series of intimate talks open to the public, and The MADFeed, a blog exploring food culture that keeps the MAD spirit alive throughout the year. "Mad" is also the Danish word for "food" - so it’s actually not that mad ;) More info here.
