SUITE NY was honored to collaborate with our partners at &Tradition, to host Danish design duo, Space Copenhagen, for the first in a new designer focused event series. Guests arrived to our sun-filled showroom, greeted by SUITE NY’s principal and co-founder, Maria Sepulveda, who spoke about the evolution of the company and her vision for the future.
In Maria’s words, “We are thrilled to welcome the best and brightest across the A&D community for the first event in SUITE NY’s event series. A series that we hope will continue to distinguish SUITE NY as a resource for cutting-edge design and as a forum for curiosity towards design at large.”
A DYNAMIC DUO
Peter Bundgaard Rützou and Signe Bindslev Henriksen
Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, Space Copenhagen is a design studio working across multiple disciplines from furniture, lighting and refined objects, to art installations, art direction and interior design for private homes, hotels and restaurants the world over.
The studio’s intuitive approach embodies design that is distinctively shaped by the given circumstances, functional needs, and a fundamental interest in human behavior. It is a sense of and belief in a slow aesthetic that centers around quality and longevity.
A CONVERSATION ON POETIC MODERNISM

Journalist and content creator, Rima Suqi, led an innovative conversation with Signe and Peter, of Space Copenhagen. Taking a biographical approach, the conversation was a whimsical and unabashed look into the designers’ unique personal histories, their evolving interests, and ultimately their collaboration as cutting-edge purveyors of contemporary Danish design. Among the many fun facts gleaned from the conversation: Peter experienced a brief stint as a hand model, and Signe aspired to work in film scenography.
