Creative Drive

The 101 Copenhagen Design House carefully curates and design objects for Scandinavian living.

The objects design reflects the symbioses of design traditions whilst also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and references expressed in a minimalist idiom. The design approach is notably holistic, the work process is dynamic and characterized by freedom of expression, which creates unique and timeless pieces.

101 Copenhagen carefully select suppliers, who are willing to experiment with materials and finishes in new exciting ways, while also following the newest standards within sustainable production. For us it’s important to always try to push the boundaries of materials and production techniques.


Tommy Hyldahl and Kristian Sofus Hansen is the creative team behind 101 Copenhagen. They seek inspiration within the world of art and sculptures, with the ambition to communicate art to a wider audience.

From Tommys many travels around Asia, and Kristian been living and studying design in Japan, they both share a passion for Japanese perfection, wabi-sabi and simplicity. The duo aims to combine Japanese aesthetics with Danish Design, to achieve a characteristic twist to simplicity itself. Many of their designs are distinctively characterized by an ambiguous expression, playing with contrasts of materials, light and silhouettes.

In their search for inspiration they handpick details and references from different historical design periods, and put them together in new ways to create the unique design universe of 101 Copenhagen.
