The fifth edition of RUM International fuses interior design with fashion and art, where strong silhouettes and sculptural designs mark a new era of creativity and talent. We visit a colourful Copenhagen crowd — including a designer, an architect, a florist and a furniture dealer — in their inspiring homes and workspaces to talk to them about their visions, passions and love of their city, currently on the rise as a new cultural playground. We chat with one of the individual’s behind Copenhagen’s monumental upswing: Marie Nipper, director of Copenhagen Contemporary, the city’s impressive new art space that recently reopened its doors in the historical shipyard on Refshaleøen, imparts her belief that art makes us whole as humans, and tells us that one of the founding ideologies of Copenhagen Contemporary is our common need to spend more time together instead of living behind screens. She celebrates the Danish art spectator’s more courageous and curious approach to the art world – two adjectives we hope are imbued in the pages of this magazine.
