“We wish to celebrate and promote the products and shops which are uniquely Copenhagen. The ones you can find only here,” say Asger Daugbjerg and Brian Engblad, founders and partners at CPHmade.
CPHmade is a new network for businesses which may develop and/or design, but definitely produce and sell, their products in Copenhagen.
Unique Products with an Interesting Story
“We try to identify what is unique about a city – in this caseCopenhagen – and particularly the products which are unique with a story that will be attractive to locals and visitors alike,” says Brian Engblad.
The two entrepreneurs run a successful business consultancy, GlobeEight, specializing in innovation and sustainability, and founded CPHmade in September 2011. They were both born and raised in Copenhagen but due to their consultancy work travel throughout the world and have lived in the USA and Singapore, respectively.
Brian Engblad adds: “We have both seen our fair share of airports and main streets on all continents. We started CPHmade because we wanted to move away from the trivial and mainstream and focus on items which possess a certain kind of authenticity, history and dedication in the production process.”
