Top choice in Copenhagen

Owned by Danish Design School graduates Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft, Stilleben stocks a bewitching range of contemporary ceramic, glassware, jewellery and textiles from mostly emerging Danish and foreign designers. Head up the wooden stairs for posters and prints, including works by celebrated contemporary Danish artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen. There's a second branch opposite gourmet-food market Torvehallerne KBH.
