The Royal Library, Copenhagen

The interior design of the Royal Library at Slotsholmen in Copenhagen represents a continuation, in terms of design and materials, of the building’s essentially simple design concept and general character. The project comprises the design of fixtures and fittings as well as the choice of moveable furnishings and standard components for all the library’s diverse sections and functions: reading rooms, administration areas, restaurant and canteen, exhibition spaces, shop, foyer and public service areas. Fixtures and fittings include service counters, reading room tables with task lighting, as well as seating furniture, bars and buffets in the restaurant. Moveable furniture includes the adjustment and fitting of standard shelving, choice of reading room chairs, rest seating, plus tables and chairs for the restaurant and canteen. The materials used for the fixtures and furnishings are primarily concrete, pale wood, pale leather along with stainless steel surfaces.
