Hotel Odeon

Odense, Denmark Designed by Barbara Bendix Becker


Fritz Hansen’s well-known design language was crucial to the project, and has exactly the expression we were aiming for. It was important to us that in 10 years the hotel still feels modern and relevant – and arouses the curiosity of the guests. Arne Jacobsen’s organic forms add poetry to the building, and colours and materials have been a key element in the entire project. From the coarse woven fabrics and slightly transparent curtains, to the light wood and stone. The soft beige and grey tones match the light we have in the Nordic countries, where you will see that grey tones change character and depth into violet or warm beige. Together, the various elements encapsulate the identity of the hotel.
