Come and build sustainable japanese christmas trees

29 nov 2017 kl. 16:00 - 21:00

Dansk Arkitektur Center (Book Shop), Strandgade 27B, 1401 København K

DAC invites you to our Christmas Kick-off with traditional Danish gløgg and æbleskiver (mulled wine and pancake puffs).
Come and build sustainable Japanese Christmas trees in the Bookshop with young Japanese architects Miki and Suguru.

Join the young Japanese architectural design firm mok architects and build this year’s Christmas trees out of surplus wood from Dinesens Planker.
You can contribute to the big communal Christmas tree or build your own little tree to take home (a construction set is available for DKK 199).

From waste to Christmas tree

Copenhagen-based mok architects built a beautiful food pavilion for this year’s Chart Art Fair at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in collaboration with Dinesen Planker and The Union Kitchen.
The pavilion was made entirely from surplus wood from Dinesens’ production of flooring planks.
In Japan, this kind of wood waste is used to make chopsticks; in Denmark the wood is for the most part tossed out as rubbish.
mok architects has therefore designed a small building element in wood that can be combined to create larger constructions.
All you need is a bit of glue and a rubber mallet.
DAC wants to reuse the wooden elements from the pavilion to build a Christmas tree for our Bookstore and YOU are invited to help build it!

Gløgg and Christmas fun

Danish gløgg and æbleskiver (mulled wine and pancake puffs) will be on sale during this event for the whole family. In the Bookstore, you will also find plenty of inspiration for design gifts and Japanese Christmas decorations.
