A UNIQUELY DESIGNED SPACE FOR CPH:DOX FILM FESTIVAL

Between March 16 and 26, Copenhagen’s Kunsthal Charlottenborg exhibition centre is transformed into a gathering point for the 14th edition of the world’s third largest documentary film festival. CPH:DOX and the festival’s main sponsor, Normann Copenhagen, are moving into the old palace and filling it with custom-made furniture and installation-like décor.

The thoughtfully considered scenography reflects the visual identity of CPH:DOX, which revolves around being different and standing out from the crowd. Therefore, a theme of human differences runs through the furnishings, visualised through interiors in a range of skin hues.

MONOCHROME BLUE – KICTHEN CONVERSATIONS

The monochrome blue Everyday Room will be the hub for a number of different events during the festival, and is furnished as a “conversation kitchen” with bar stools around a high table. Visitors can sit down on large, square poufs, that spread around the room like ice floes on an open sea. The visual breach of blue in an otherwise warm universe of colors emphasises the narrative of standing out from the crowd.

SOCIAL CINEMA – GET CLOSER

At this year’s festival, 250 guests can take their place in custom-made sofa rows at Denmark’s very first social design cinema. Long integrated rows of sofas, made up of Normann Copenhagen s Rope modular sofa, create an informal atmosphere and blur the boundary between private and public, between friend and stranger. The Social Cinema concept aims to bring people together for a shared film experience.

VIRTUAL REALITY – ALTERNATE UNIVERSES

An army of swivelling chairs lined up in long rows in an otherwise empty room. In the VR-room festival visitors can disappear into alternative universes using the latest in Virtual Reality technology. The latex and foam plastic decoration in the room almost resemble skin or flesh. Appealing and repulsive at the same time, the decor links into an overall thematic contrast between feeling well and unwell, safe and captured.
