Nyhavn, the colourful houses in Copenhagen which attract thousands of tourists every summer, was surprisingly on exhibit at the TFIC Furniture Outlet Fair in Bangkok, Thailand held by the end of September. The houses were reproduced in doll house size as cupboards by Parawood Design / Artemis Furniture and exhibited on the stand of the company at the fair.
“I took the pictures in Nyhavn myself,” explains Khun Boonyawat Siripatcharawong of Parawood Designs / Artemis Furniture.
“To make it into a piece of furniture, I first selected the four buildings that I like and added the cupboard functionality. Finally I had to adjust the design a bit to be suitable for industrial production,” he added.
“They are different from other vintage furniture you may find in the market and quite a few people have stopped by and looked inside the “Skipper Kroen” cupboard.
Currently we have no more on stock, but we can deliver within 30 days from the time we get the order,” he said.
The stand of Parawood Design / Artemis Furniture also displayed a miniature telephone booth and other reproductions with new functionality.
ScandAsia took the opportunity to give Khun Boonyawat Siripatcharawong a picture series of the famous Bryggen houses in Bergen and asked him for a quotation on a custom made miniature of this famous tourist sight.
