Ever since the company was founded in 1990, the core of Garde Hvalsøe has been dedicated to the craft of bespoke interior solutions. Garde Hvalsøe lives and breathes uncompromising quality and sublime craftsmanship, and the classic virtues from the Danish crafts and design tradition are in their blood. For Garde Hvalsøe, it is essential to stay true to the rhythm that is their signature. Therein lies the key to creating the world of tomorrow, which according to Garde Hvalsøe has to be built of quality materials in honest, thoughtful designs with a timeless beauty to be appreciated by generations to come.

With the exhibition ‘The Origin of Things’, Garde Hvalsøe and artist Sara Martinsen invite you to experience a visual story of materials at the intersection of art and design that highlights nature’s strengths and fragilities and provides food for thought. The exhibition features a wide range of organic materials, from wood and resin to soil and plant fibres, and contains the seeds of a deeper understanding of nature as the very condition of our existence. Explore ‘The Origin of Things’ in the newly redesigned Garde Hvalsøe showroom, where cabinetmaking excellence and artistic storytelling meet to celebrate natural materials – their beauty, sensory qualities, and inherent wisdom.

Pholc is a Swedish lighting brand with a different take on Scandinavian design. The brand has a clear mission – to challenge the expected with every lamp. A mission that requires a constant flow of new ideas, influences, and approaches. In other words, collaboration is at the heart of Pholc. It is even stated in the name. Pholc is a wordplay of Folk, the Swedish name for people. The very essence of the brand is built upon partnering up with creatives who share the will and courage to make strong design statements. It’s all about finding and nurturing relationships where ideas can grow, alter, and evolve. A respectful creative friction pushing the boundaries of what design can be.
