Louise Roe Copenhagen
Louise Roe is an interior and home decor brand based out of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The brand is created by Hanne Louis Roe Anderson, a designer with a background in fashion and a passion for crafting sophisticated products. Louise Rose designs every product to tell a story. The products are then given a natural quality with the use of organic materials.
Louise Roe’s product line encompasses ceramics, glassware, furniture, lighting and decor. Roe has an interest in architecture and design. And this interest often manifests in many of her designs. Her Mirroe line of decorative mirrors have an Art Deco aesthetic about them. The design merges bold Art Deco patterns with Scandinavian Minimalism. With its atypical style, these mirrors turn into glamorous art pieces in any contemporary home.
The design of each collection here starts with a concept. Taking inspiration from materials and craftsmanship, Louise Roe then sketches out the designs. Her glassware collections are a great example of this process. Through the glassware, Roe focuses on the craft of mouth-blown glass; and the pieces show the beauty of this trade. The City Light range begins with the idea of the skyscrapers lining 5th Avenue in New York.
The architectural grid of these skyscrapers form the pattern of this glass range. Available in colors like amber, burgundy and smoky brown, the glasses almost resemble the buildings in various lighting conditions. The Funki range of glassware are based on Functionalism in architecture. The movement is also known as Funkis in Scandinavian and Nordic nations, leading to the name. Glassware in this collection is thicker, with a pillar-like style. The design not only gives them a unique look, but is in fact inspired by the concrete pillars and large glass walls characteristic of functionalist buildings.
Other designs by Louise Roe extend beyond architectural elements while maintaining the quintessential Scandinavian minimalism and warmth. This is seen in designs like that of the Jewel Box. The Jewel Box is a circular wooden box for storing small trinkets and jewelry. Along with the simple circular design, the box uses dark wood to create a sophisticated and warm look. The universal appeal of the clean design turns the box into a treasured object that can be passed down through generations. Similarly, Roe's rug designs marry minimalism and warmth with an emphasis on texture and quality. Featuring textured geometric designs and patterns, the rugs are hand woven from New Zealand wool.
To take a look at some of Louise Roe's products, customers can stop by the Louise Roe Gallery and Café. Designed with objects by Louise Roe, the café also serves up delicious local fare.
